About Hay House

Hay House is a mission-driven company dedicated to supporting positive change in the world by helping all people to grow in mind, body, and spirit. With a diverse roster of customers, authors, and points of view, Hay House offers products and resources that empower, educate, and inspire.

Our Story

Louise Hay, the founder of Hay House, is known as one of the pillars of the modern self-help movement. Louise’s personal philosophy was forged from a troubled early life, capped by her most profound challenge—literally healing herself from cancer through the power of her mind. As she wrote, “Every thought we think is creating our future.”

Louise initially self-published Heal Your BodyandYou Can Heal Your Life, both of which became international bestsellers. Hay House was founded in 1987 as a way for Louise to help other authors publish transformational books and audio programs. Today, Hay House is one of the largest independently owned mind-body-spirit and transformational enterprises in the world. With U.S. offices in Carlsbad, California; New York City; and Austin, Texas, and international divisions in the United Kingdom, Australia, and India, we deliver our products and services to millions of people in more than 35 countries.

What We Offer

Hay House produces books (print, electronic, and audio), card decks, calendars, streaming content, mobile apps, and more. From self-improvement to spirituality, health to business, metaphysics to memoir, diet to tarot, children’s books to crystals, we offer our audience a wide selection of practical and inspirational resources in a broad range of formats.

We also offer online courses through Hay House Online Learning; live events around the world with our roster of visionary thought leaders through; and intimate listening experiences with our top teachers through Hay House Podcasts and our Hay House Unlimited Audio App.

Our self-publishing division, Balboa Press, empowers independent authors to bring their own messages to the world.

Hay House’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Inclusion is one of the founding principles of our company. Louise was an early advocate of the LGBTQ+ community, offering unconditional love and support to many during the AIDS crisis. As part of our ongoing mission, Hay House stands in solidarity with our Black colleagues and community members in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, and we are committed to elevating the voices of Black, Indigenous, and other people of color throughout our publishing and media programs. In 2018, we launched the Diverse Wisdom initiative, which provides mentoring and training for writers of color who are under-represented in traditional publishing. We are also striving to achieve greater diversity in our team of authors and within the structure of our company. We recognize the importance of continuously educating ourselves and remedying our shortcomings in order to embody the principle of equity in all that we do. Louise founded Hay House with the objective of being an agent of positive change in the world, and we see helping to bring about a greater level of inclusion and equity as an essential part of that work.
