By Hay House, Special for USDR
What started as a mission 33 years ago by Louise Hay to spread a message of self-love, has evolved into a worldwide movement selling millions of books and transforming millions of lives.
Hay House was founded in 1984 by Louise Hay as a way to self-publish her first two books, Heal Your Body and You Can Heal Your Life, both of which became international bestsellers. Louise, diagnosed with cancer, strongly believed that the beliefs and ideas one had about themselves were often the cause of their emotional problems and physical maladies. Using that philosophy, she developed an intensive program of affirmations, visualization, nutritional cleansing and psychotherapy to heal herself of cancer, instead of surgery or drugs. You Can Heal Your Life incorporated these same philosophies and methods Louise felt so strongly about. You Can Heal Your Life reached the New York Times bestseller list and remained on it for 13 consecutive weeks, and has now sold more than 50 million copies worldwide.
Louise continued to spread her message of self-love by beginning her famous support group, “The Hayride,” in 1985 with six men diagnosed with AIDS. A few years later the movement had grown to a weekly gathering of 800 people, further strengthening the societal need for Louise’s message of self-love.
In 1987, Hay House was incorporated and began full-scale operations. Hay House is one of the fastest-growing mind-body-spirit and transformational enterprises in the world, selling products and services in more than 35 countries. Hay House has published books from iconic teachers like Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Doreen Virtue, Marianne Williamson, Iyanla Vanzant while bringing to light hundreds of new authors in several different genres.
