Ever expanding, like the universe.

My rules for life: Feeling good is your job. Love can only multiply. 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. I’m a bestselling author, a speaker, and a professional optimist. I’m creative and practical; adventurous and disciplined; loving and strong. I’m incurably enthusiastic, devoted to freedom, and pretty ruthless about discarding what isn’t working. 

I love weirdos, and I feel like that’s probably how you found me: you, too, have an inner weirdo that you want to nurture. Maybe your inner weirdo has been ignored for a long time, and now it refuses to be quiet. You’re excited — and maybe a little nervous! — to find out more about what your inner weirdo wants. I can tell you what your inner weirdo wants.

Your inner weirdo wants to be FREE. She wants to FEEL GOOD. She wants to EXPRESS herself, clearly and truly and without reservation. And I can help you with all of that. 

Back in 2006, my life was completely transformed by EFT tapping, an energy psychology technique. I went from depressed and aimless with an eating disorder to someone with huge confidence, infinite joy, and a really healthy attitude towards food, health, and fitness. Many women see themselves in my story, and I am passionate about helping them overcome whatever may be holding them back, so they can dream bigger and achieve more.

I am the author of three books: Radical Self-Love: A Guide To Loving Yourself And Living Your Dreams (2016), Radical Radiance: How To Make Love To The Universe And Manifest Anything (2019), and Hologram Heart: A Radiant Guide To The Romantic Revolution (2020). My first book, Radical Self-Love, went to #1 in its category and has been translated into five languages.

I have been endorsed by Oprah (my book was chosen by O Magazine as one of their best on self-love), Vogue (my retreats have been featured in their pages), the New York Times, and Girlboss. 

But perhaps the thing I am most proud of is founding The Vortex, a community of babes who are devoted to feeling good and creating sensational lives. We are an international bad bitch crew, over a thousand strong, who come together every day to learn new skills, support one another, and swap notes on how to live sensational lives. You can learn more about it here!

Gala Darling is a speaker and the bestselling author of Radical Self-Love: A Guide To Loving Yourself And Living Your Dreams, Radical Radiance: How To Make Love To The Universe And Manifest Anything, and Hologram Heart: A Radiant Guide To The Romantic Revolution. With a mission of making EFT/tapping mainstream and accessible, she has taught tapping and radical self love techniques to millions of women over the past fifteen years.

She was inspired to start doing this work after healing her eating disorder and depression using tapping. When that happened, she became obsessed with the idea that what we think is a life sentence is actually just a story. As a teacher, she is effervescent, unconventional, and unapologetically enthusiastic. Who said healing and growth has to be boring?!

Gala’s TEDTalk has been viewed over a quarter of a million times. Her first book, Radical Self-Love, became an instant bestseller at #1 in its category and has been translated into five languages. She has taught at NYU, been featured in every major publication that counts from Vogue to the New York Times, and worked with celebrity clients like the original Girlboss, Sophia Amoruso.

She believes that life is to be celebrated, change can be joyful, and deeply and completely loving, accepting, and forgiving yourself is the key to living the life you’ve always dreamed of.
