Frequently Asked Questions
Thank you for your interest in my message and work. My team and I are so grateful you're here.
Please read below for the subject and answer you seek. In doing so, you enable us to focus on serving at our best.
If you wish to use any of my work, including the Five Regrets, as content for speaking presentations, public events, online programs or in any income-generating product (excluding books, which are listed further below), permission is not granted. You may refer to one of the regrets without our permission, providing you quote my name, but you may not use more than one. The exception to this is a paid collaboration with me. Please email the office via the Contact page to open the conversation around your vision. We look forward to hearing from you.
If you wish to use any of my work, including the Five Regrets, for your blog or magazine, please include a link to your website or organisation in your email via the Contact page. We wish to support you, but cannot guarantee permission if your request arrives with a deadline of only days or hours. We will reply as soon as possible, but please allow 30 days to be sure.
If you wish to use any of my work excluding the Five Regrets in your own book, please include a link to your website with information about your book in your email via the Contact page. We will reply within 30 days. You may not publish your book using my content without our permission.
If you wish to use the Five Regrets or part thereof in your own book, please contact the nearest Hay House office to your region. Permission is not given from this office.
It is illegal to use my work without permission. Both my publisher and my own office take copyright seriously. Thank you for respecting my hard work and following the correct legal channels.
Thank you! I love sharing my life-changing teachings on courage and regret-free living by speaking at both public and private events.
More information is available on the Speaking page.
While I love connecting through quality interviews, we are only able to say yes to a percentage of requests received.
Please include a link to your website/organisation and social media pages in your email via the Contact page.
Advise us of pre-interview or post-interview requirements, if any. Requests where we have to supply the questions are given low priority.
If it's a podcast interview request, let us know how long your show has been running, verified listener numbers, the length of the interview and any other expectations.
On all accounts state whether you are seeking a voice only, video or email interview.
Please ensure you have read my book/s fully, rather than just the blog article. This ensures a much more interesting interview for your audience.
Requests without all of the above details cannot be considered.
We assess all requests once a month. Please don't send a follow-up email. If we'd like to discuss more or offer you an interview, we'll be in touch within 30 days. Either way, thank you for asking.
(Refer further down the page for online summits.)
If you are interested in me representing your brand, please email via the Contact page. Providing that both your brand and product are aligned with my own values, I am happy to consider your proposal.
Great things are done when great minds and hearts work together! Send your proposal outlining your vision via the form on the contact page.
Make sure you include my potential role in the project, audience demographic and numbers (and how they will be served by the project), time frame, financials, and links to your website and social pages.
You will receive a response either way, once my team and I have had time to consider your project thoroughly.
(Please refer to separate question and answer for online summits.)
I rarely participate in affiliate summits, but wish you a very successful and enjoyable event.
If you are a well-established teacher in your field and your summit is not strictly affiliate based, you are welcome to email the office via the contact page.
I no longer offer personal, individual advice, as it takes me too far from what I love most in my work: writing books and connecting with my audience via the weekly newsletter. (You can join the mailing list by signing up for the six free lessons at the bottom of most pages of this website.)
This website also contains stacks of free inspiration for you, including via the blog/vlog.

Thank you, but we don't require guest posts or articles for my website.
The movie rights for Five Regrets have been optioned to Enigma Film. For business related to this film, please email Fritjof Hohagen.
The rights are available for my other books.
Unless you have met me at an event and I've offered to assist with a testimonial or if I've reached out to you personally with support, I am unable to assist due to other commitments. Please do not send in your book or a PDF on the assumption I will read it. But thank you for thinking of me. I wish you all the very best with your project.
The book I mention in a personal healing episode in The Top Five Regrets of the Dying is 'Cell Level Healing' by Joyce Whiteley Hawkes.
As each author's journey is individual, it is not possible for me to offer individual advice. For the same reason, I do not endorse any specific publisher or publishing method. We recommend you join my online program WRITE FOR DELIGHT. This includes tips on publishing options.
If you were hoping to send me your book as a gift, thank you. I really mean that - thank you for your intention - but please use it for other purposes. I like an uncluttered lifestyle, which includes no excess belongings.
My cherished reading time is given to books of my own choosing from my long wish-list, especially historical fiction.
If you would like to send me a different kind of gift, please email the office first via the contact page.
I am grateful for your generous heart, but I love the planet and do not like to encourage consumerism. As mentioned above, I also don't like excess belongings.
Unfortunately, books and/or gifts sent without these considerations usually have to be given to charity stores.
I appreciate your loving intention to offer advice for Rheumatoid Arthritis, but we ask that unless you have fully read my book Bloom, please refrain from doing so.
I've embarked on extensive learning of numerous modalities. As a result, I have a deep understanding of my body and its needs.
We all have different paths to walk and different ways to heal.
We recommend reading Bloom to possibly understand your own health journey better.
If you have read it and still feel called to share, you are welcome to email us via the Contact page. But again, please do not email if you haven't read Bloom and fully understand the depth of my experience with healing. Emails of such loving intention can distract rather than support.
You are welcome to write via the form on the contact page and your email will be forwarded to me. I read all loving mail when my time is right.
Unfortunately I cannot respond to personal mail received, as me or the team always tried to do in the past. We wish we could, but there is only so much we can do while also being committed to presence and regret-free living ourselves.
Instead, we focus on serving you in the best ways possible, including allowing me space to create and do my best work on a global level. But please know that all loving emails will be read.
While no formal business is done on social media, I do interact when possible. Read my inspiring quotes on Facebook or enjoy my thoughts combined with my own nature photos on Instagram. Videos are posted on YouTube and I've recently joined Pinterest.
I also correspond more personally to those on my mailing list, through regular newsletters. Join my online family via the form at the bottom of this page.
Depending on the nature of your email, we will endeavour to reply as soon as we can, providing the subject matter does not fall into one of the above categories not requesting further contact. If it has been answered in the sections above, no reply will be given.
Thank you for your time in reading this page to have your question answered. Your respect of this request allows my team and I to focus on serving best and with joy,
You could hope that life will change on its own – and try to read/affirm/pray your way to a better one . . .
You could be brave and take the first step to live the life you're here for.
