Sharing timeless wisdom 24/7!
Hay House Radio is an internet radio station run by Hay House, the world’s leading mind, body and spirit publisher. Founded in March 2005 the radio station celebrates its 8th birthday this month! Hay House was founded by Louise L. Hay almost 30 years ago. It is committed to publishing products that have a positive self-help focus and are conducive to healing planet Earth. Since launching Hay House Radio has transferred much of the information that can be found in the books of many of Hay House’s acclaimed authors to the airwaves.
Hay House Radio enables you to listen to your Hay House authors on their weekly radio shows. Click play and listen to weekly radio shows hosted by prominent Hay House authors including Doreen Virtue, Dr. Wayne W Dwyer, Denise Linn and Cheryl Richardson! The station operates 24 hours, 7 days per week and we counted almost 40 regular weekly shows, covering a wide range of holistic and spiritual themes. Show topics include Intuitive health, Archetypes, Angel Therapy and Coaching. There is also a guided mediation hour and a book club show.
Hay House Radio consciously reaches out to a UK audience. The radio station has a weekly show on Mondays called ‘Spotlight Hay House UK’ where you can hear the latest news from Hay House UK in London. In a recent episode of Robert Holden’s radio show ‘Shift Happens’ 5 Hay House authors in the UK were interviewed, including Dr. David R Hamilton, who we featured in our Digital Review in the March 2013 print edition of Silent Voices magazine.
You can engage with Hay House Radio! We listened to several interactive call-in shows; it is always interesting hearing callers relating their experiences. There are also special live event shows which focus on the delivery of courses, often multiple lessons held over several weeks. Topics range from a course on book marketing to a tutorial on connecting to the spirit world (hosted by internationally renowned Psychic Medium John Holland). Tickets for these live event shows can be purchased through the web site and we also noted some free events.
An On demand archive is available for some recent shows. The full radio and podcast archive is available through a low cost membership subscription to the Hay House Wisdom Community™ (via the Hay House Radio website). The membership entitles you to generous discounts on other Hay House products.
