About Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain was born in 1948. In the 1970s, she started a small publishing company with Marc Allen. She published her first book, "Creative Visualization" with a loan from her mother. Her book grew to become an international bestseller and the publishing company grew into one of the largest publishers of New Age and personal development books.

Shakti Gawain eventually left New World Library and started another publishing company with her husband called Nataraj Publishing. New World Library acquired Nataraj Publishing in 1998 and continues to publish personal development books under that name as an imprint.

In addition to her work as a publisher and writer, Shakti Gawain has frequently been in the media spreading her message about living a fulfilled and balanced life. She has appeared on Oprah, Larry King, Good Morning America, Leeza, Sonya Live, New Dimensions Radio, and America's Talking. She has also been written about in New Age Journal, New Woman, and Time Magazine.

Through her books, media appearances, and workshops, she teaches thousands of people how to develop increased awareness and create whole lives. Her work seeks to heal people of all types of problems including emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual. Using techniques she implements in her own life, Shakti Gawain teaches others how to get in touch with their own intuition in order to find deeper meaning and purpose in life.
