Hay House Founder Louise Hay Dies

by The Editors on August 31, 2017

The founder of Carlsbad’s most successful publishing businesses Louise Hay died in her sleep on August 30, 2017 of natural causes according to a release from Hay House. Hay was 90.

Considered by many to be a founder of the “self-help” movement Hay published her first book Heal Your Body in 1976 when she was 50 and went on to publish books by some of the biggest names in the business like Dr. Wayne Dyer, Doreen Virtue, Dr. Christiane Northrup, and Esther and Jerry Hicks, among others.

“Meeting Louise changed the direction of my life,” said Reid Tracy, President and CEO of Hay House, Inc. “Her passion for serving others translated into everything she did. Simply by working alongside her, an analytical accountant like me transformed into someone who became aware of the power of affirmations and self-love. Being able to learn from her has been one of my life’s greatest blessings. The beauty of Louise was that you didn’t have to work alongside her to learn from her, you felt like you were there with her with every word you read or heard.”

TGIF 5: Feufollet

by The Editors on July 17, 2017

Don’t miss your last chance for music in Poinsettia Community Park on Friday July 21, 2017 as Carlsbad’s TGIF Concerts In The Parks presents the cajun sounds of Feufollet.

While Feufollet remains central to the neo-traditionalist brush fire they helped ignite as youths, their album, En Couleurs found the band coming into its own and pushing the envelope, leading the way once again as Cajun music extends itself into a new century. It was praised by the New York Times, Garden & Gun and Elvis Costello who proclaimed “En Couleurs is the most beautifully melodic album I’ve heard all year.” 

Poinsettia Community Park is located 6600 Hidden Valley Road in Carlsbad, California. Parking shuttle service operates between 4:30 to 9 p.m. from North Coast Calvary Chapel, 1330 Poinsettia Lane.
