Joffre is a Spiritual/Personal Growth Author, Motivational Speaker, and Common Sense Advocate who was compelled to write her first book, HOW LEARNING TO SAY GOODBYE TAUGHT ME HOW TO LIVE/2015, Balboa Press, on spiritual growth because of the profound experiences of seeing her best friend battle breast cancer. Kirkus Reviews called it “A thoughtful think piece.”
Joffre began her career as a theatre actress and producer, having spent most of her adult life in New York City, where she acted in and produced several Off-Broadway productions. An avid student of spiritual literature and techniques since the early 1980s, Joffre taught herself filmmaking and formed Sweet Moon Pictures Production Company back in the 1990’s. She wrote, produced, and directed two independent films: Out of the Blue (1995) and Best Wishes (2002; winner of the “Spirit of the West Award”). Before moving back to Texas to care for her dying mother, she worked as a senior producer and director for a media broadcast Production Company in New York City for over fifteen years.
Her newest book, THE HEART OF THE MATTER (A Workbook and Guide to Finding Your Way Back to Self-love) 2017, Balboa Press, was born out of the work she did within to heal her wounds and beliefs of the past and move successfully and fully into self-love. Foreword Clarion called it “life-changing, thoughtful, thought-provoking, containing powerful insights, and full of wisdom.” Kirkus Reviews called it “enlightening self-discovery process.” And BlueInk Reviews said, “enriching, a virtual hug.”
Her passion now through her book, talks, and videos is to help everyone wake up, take the journey of self-discovery, and empower themselves through self-love. She strongly believes there is a need for more common sense both in our spiritual and personal growth pursuits as well as in our everyday lives.
