Radical Self Love Salons

July 11th LINCOLN, NE

Learning to love yourself — while wonderful — can feel a little lonely. Your friends don’t always “get it”, and your family can be downright hostile to the idea. You can feel disconnected: now that you’re not looking for validation in a bottle or a notch on the bedpost, what are you supposed to do with your time? And it can be confusing, too: once you’ve taken those first few steps, what do you do next?

You’re not the only one asking yourself these questions… And I have answers.

What if I told you that you’re surrounded by a magical network of babes like you, but you just haven’t met them yet? What if I told you that the old story you tell yourself is exactly that: a story? And what if I told you that your entire spirit is lit up with potential, and that you can create the kind of life you’ve always dreamed about? All of this is true, and all of it starts with radical self love.

I’m delighted to invite you to take part in a Radical Self Love Salon. You’ll be part of a small, intimate group, in a supportive space designed specifically to help you fall in love with yourself… And to start taking action on all those big dreams you have!

Radical Self Love Salon

Radical Self Love Salons are transformative events. Expect to have your illusions challenged, to learn some incredible techniques that you can use immediately to bust through sadness and increase your bliss, and to leave with a brand new appreciation of your own infinite brilliance.

On the agenda: A radical self love talk, plus activities and break-out sessions / An open Q&A session / And a very special radical self love ritual! Plus a radical self love tote bag containing a notebook and some wonderful goodies!

We’ll start off by talking through the whole concept of radical self love. What does it mean to love yourself, and what does it look like in your daily life? How do you break out of the drudgery of your everyday existence to grab life by the lapels? In addition to speaking about my own experiences, we’ll discuss some of the more common struggles I’ve seen, and I’ll teach you my favourite methods for pushing on through.

Next, we’ll move onto a selection of activities, break-out sessions, and space to explore what radical self love means for you personally!

In the Q&A session, I’ll be answering any questions you might have. Bring me your most bamboozling brain-teasers! If it’s a problem for you, it’s a problem for someone else in the room. If you’re having trouble finding support, learning to love your body, embracing the magic of life or taking risks, I’m here to help.

Finally, you’ll be taken through a radical self love ritual, which will leave you feeling transformed and energised. (You’ll be finding rose petals for days afterwards!)

It’s going to be momentous.


“I always leave your events leaving refreshed and inspired, and this was absolutely no different — when I walked out of that door, I felt like I could conquer all the obstacles that had felt so insurmountable before. Perfectionism, self-deprecation, comparison, all the icky feelings that keep me down seemed to melt away. Whether it was a wave of the rose quartz wand, the energy grounding, or just the fabulous energy of the ladies in that room, who knows? But it truly was magic!” (Luna)

“Gala’s Radical Self Love Salon was life altering. Expect huge mind shifts, camaraderie, inspiration plus lots of practical techniques to incorporate more self love into your life. This is an area that every single woman can afford to improve upon. I left feeling totally relieved of my burdens, injected with love and with an arsenal of exciting techniques to love myself more. Plus, Gala is an absolute delight to be around! Definitely jump on this opportunity to learn how to love yourself more.” (Rachel)

“I was surprised how emotional I became hearing tidbits of the groups’ lives. It was a testament to how we all are going through it! It was a beautiful experience having like minded people come together in a space and vibe. Gala, the salon was a lovely balance of give and take. You knew when to lead and facilitate as well as sit back and let us learn from each other. I had a lot of fun and would love to attend another workshop as well as volunteer to getting your message of radical self love out there. Xo” (Emily)

“After reading Gala’s blog for years and finally meeting and listening to her in person couldn’t have been better! The empowering and magical energy coming from her really made me love every second of the workshop. At first I was nervous, but I realised very early that there was really nothing to be afraid of, since the room was full of these adorable and lovely women who were all there for the same reason. Girls, please, attend the workshop if you can! Not only will you learn powerful techniques but also you’ll leave feeling magical, feminine and knowing what to do next on your RSL journey! It’s truly a unique experience. xo” (Annamária)

“I LOVED the Radical Self Love Salon! Since attending, I’ve been in a whirlwind of excitement, magic and radical self loving and feel open to so many new possibilities that I just hadn’t quite fully realised before. Being part of such a supportive group and being given new perspectives on so many things, as well as re-examining my own thoughts and sparking fresh realisations, has been awesome! And the magic! Oh, the magic!!…” (Lizzie)

“Going to The Radical Self Love Salon was one of the best things I’ve done all year. Being surrounded by people who have a desire to love themselves is beautiful and empowering. I really felt part of something, and the strength of that loving energy doesn’t seem to be going away. Every moment was magical. I can’t thank you enough!” (Laura)

“Gala’s Radical Self Love Salon is so empowering. Sharing your scariest fears and world-conquering dreams with a bunch of likeminded women was such a great feeling. It was a magical day, one to be recreated soon I hope!” (Charlotte)

“In this Radical Self Love Salon Gala provides not only a magical and beautiful space, but a safe one. What the world needs is more people supporting each other and sharing their stories. In just a couple of hours everyone in the room opened up and brought in one of their challenges and then (as if my magic) everyone helped each other. This workshop is for anyone who feels like they are alone, anyone who feels like they are misunderstood and for anyone who wants to reclaim their own story.” (Louise Androlia)
