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.”

Directed by Chaz Cabrera and Whitney Shay, the JazzKatz members are some of the finest and most experienced jazz musicians hand-picked in the San Diego area. The JazzKatz exhibit a passion for modern to classic jazz and emulate the swing sounds of big band music, helping to create a distinctive style that is their own, and never fails to impress.

As always, the music begins at 6 PM. Alga Norte Community park is located at 6565 Alicante Road in Carlsbad, California. Shuttle service operates between 4:30 to 9 p.m. from Ocean Collection, 2510 Gateway Road in Carlsbad.
