Dancing with the Authors
“There are short-cuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them.”
— Vicki Baum
Martha Graham was one of the foremost pioneers of contemporary dance. She once said: “Dance is the hidden language of the soul.” If this is true, then our Hay House authors must be awesome dancers!
Each day, we reach for our most loved books by favorite authors such as Louise Hay, Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson, Gregg Braden, Cheryl Richardson, John Holland, Caroline Myss, Sonia Choquette, Alan Cohen, Doreen Virtue and so many others because our souls yearn for nourishment. These cherished and profound scribes tap in to wisdom somewhere beyond our perception and choreograph their powerful and inspiring words to bring us closer to our inner selves.
So as I watch season after season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and see rockers like Kelly Osborne, ex-football players like Michael Irvin, models like Kathy Ireland, actresses like Debi Mazar, computer whizzes like Steve Wozniak, talk-show hosts like Jerry Springer, former child stars like Donny and Marie Osmond, Olympic icons like Kristi Yamaguchi, country singers like Billy Ray Cyrus, rappers like Lil’ Kim, soap stars like Kelly Monaco, showstoppers like Cloris Leachman, and even Jackass daredevil Steve-O and Iron Chef chairman Mark Dacascos—I wonder WHY they haven’t invited any illustrious authors to step in and strut their stuff.
Caroline Myss could certainly defy gravity as she demonstrates the challenging Two-Step. Marianne Williamson could easily stay the course in a miraculous Freestyle spin. Cheryl Richardson would no doubt display extreme self-care during a saucy Salsa. Sonia Choquette can always trust her vibes when she takes on the Paso Doble. Surely Lisa Williams can dance the Fox Trot from here to the Other Side of the stage. Who could deny a chance to see Suze Orman when she’s on the money with every Rumba move? Louise Hay has the power within her to affirm a Perfect 10 score. And there isn’t any excuse why Wayne Dyer wouldn’t be comfortable among the masters of the Tango.
What do you say? Let’s rally for one of our favorite Hay House authors to appear on the next season of Dancing with the Stars!

Something I Didn’t Know…
Louise Hay took ballroom dancing classes when she was in her mid-70s. “It’s never too late to learn something new.”
Best Thing I Read Last Night:
“Instead of seeing the rug being pulled from under us, we can learn to dance on a shifting carpet.”
