About Dianna Rhyan
Dianna Rhyan is a mythologist and therapist who studies nature goddesses, tree worship, forgotten voices, and the spirituality of sacred landscapes. As a child she created her first secret language on tablets of clay made from the creek beside her home. In time that language grew into a PhD in Ancient Greek and Latin, and thirty years of college teaching. She has been a visiting scholar on archaeological excavations in Greece and Cyprus, where she explored women’s devotion to rural shrines, and studied the ancient evidence for women's veils. When not delving into archaic myth, she can be found exploring the Cuyahoga Valley trails of Northeast Ohio with her swift-footed husband, her hiking crone companions, and assorted wise dogs. She is available as a speaker and presenter for nature-focused groups, hikes, retreats, libraries, and bookstores.
