About Louise Hay

Louise Hay’s best-selling book, You Can Heal Your Life, has transformed the lives of millions of people worldwide. Her inspirational story is one of courage and triumph.

Using the techniques described in her book, Louise transcended her abusive upbringing to create a life dedicated to helping others learn how to let go of limiting beliefs and create the life of their dreams!

Louise’s life work really began in 1970 in New York City, where she discovered the Church of Religious Science and began training as a spiritual practitioner, later completing the ministerial training. She learned the power of positive affirmations and a spiritual connection. It was during this time that she compiled the Heal Your Body book outlining physical symptoms, mental causes, and affirmations. She was soon traveling and speaking throughout the US. When diagnosed with cancer, she used her own methods to heal herself.

Louise later moved back to California, where her work expanded in powerful ways. She wrote her You Can Heal Your Life book (50 million copies sold worldwide), began an AIDS support group in her living room that grew to 800 people meeting weekly in a West Hollywood gymnasium. She started Hay House, one of the most well-known self-help publishing companies in the world, and Louise Hay herself is an icon in the self-help movement. Her fundamental message, the importance of loving yourself, has transformed the lives of millions. In addition to her best known books mentioned above, she has written many other books, recorded audio CDs and DVDs, and had a movie made about her life and philosophy (You Can Heal Your Life Movie).

In August 2017, at age 90, Louise passed peacefully, leaving behind a lasting legacy of wisdom and inspiration.
