Ever expanding, like the universe.

My rules for life: The most important thing is keeping your energy as high as possible. Love can only multiply. Life is an adventure. Everything is here to help you, especially when it doesn’t feel that way. And the only limit to creating a sensational life is your imagination and courage.

Hello, beautiful! My name is Gala Darling and I’m obsessed with showing women how to love themselves unconditionally. This passion has lead me to my work as an author, speaker, and coach. My first book, Radical Self-Love: A Guide To Loving Yourself And Living Your Dreams, was published by Hay House, has been translated into four languages, and became an instant #1 bestseller. My second book, Radical Radiance: How To Make Love To The Universe And Manifest Anything, is out now!

I was inspired to do this work after recovering from depression and an eating disorder. Life without depression is like that moment when The Wizard Of Oz flicks from black and white to technicolour: everything has so much more beauty and meaning. I have been making up for lost time ever since! I am wild about showing women that they can totally revolutionise their lives, that they can feel good every single day, and that the only limit is their imagination.

People always ask me how I ended up in the States. The answer is that I came to New York for a party and decided to stay. After a decade in NYC, I moved across the country to Los Angeles. Now I live in a beautiful house in West Hollywood full of rainbows and candy-coloured art, and I spend my days doing what I absolutely love. I have big pink watercolour roses tattooed on the tops of my hands, and I believe passionately in the art of gratitude. I love sparkly fingernails, feeling good, rose quartz hair, kissing, and creating new things. I count my blessings every single day. I am larger than life and I will never apologise for it!

Random facts: When I was a little girl, a teacher told my parents I should stop reading so much fiction, because I was “too imaginative”. I love deep thinkers, rebels, and risk-takers. I’m a Virgo with a Sagittarius Moon and Aquarius Rising. One of my childhood dreams was to have an accent no one could identify: finally, as a half-British New Zealander living in America, I got my wish!

“I have always admired everything about Gala from her sparkling heart to her fashion sense. I am also a fan of her writing, which is as inspiring as she is. She makes you feel like she’s there with you, sharing her secrets for a luminous life. I highly recommend Radical Self Love and everything else she writes.”

Gala Darling is a speaker and the bestselling author of Radical Self-Love: A Guide To Loving Yourself And Living Your Dreams. She has been teaching radical self love — a selection of powerful techniques and tools which help women transform their lives — for close to a decade. Her site, galadarling.com, helps a million women a month find their voice, live without fear, and fall in love with life.

Born in New Zealand, she moved to NYC with one suitcase when she was 24 years old, and used radical self love to heal from an eating disorder and depression.

Gala has been called “a spiritual revolutionary”, “the oracle of all things mystically glam”, and “a modern-day guru”. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, New Zealand Herald, Teen Vogue, New York Post, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Time Out New York, Sydney Morning Herald, The Daily Telegraph, The Age, Sunday Herald Sun, The Dominion Post, Inked magazine, MiNDFOOD, Stuff, Viva, and countless others. She has been interviewed on CBS, ABC News, and Hay House Radio. Gala has spoken about radical self love and entrepreneurship at SXSW Interactive, TEDxCMU, and dozens of other events across the world, in addition to lecturing at NYU (twice). A co-founder of The Blogcademy, she taught over 1000 women how to build their business through their blog on several continents.

Gala has worn mouse ears in the Blue Lagoon, walked the runway at New York Fashion Week, and once danced naked in front of strangers at a self-esteem workshop. She believes in kale and crystals, goal-setting and gratitude, kaleidoscopic colour and kicking ass.
