This was an absolutely beautiful conversation with Tara Mackey, with whom I immediately felt a very deep and joyful connection.
Tara Mackey is the #1 Bestselling Author of Cured by Nature, a soul singer and global motivational speaker. She is the Founder and CEO of The Organic Life, recognized as one of San Diego Business Journal’s Healthiest Companies of 2016. Tara inspires people to make bold and brave moves, take actions to live their dreams and create lives they only once imagined.
Growing up in New York City, Tara watched her single mother struggle with drug addiction until her near-fatal overdose when Tara was six. After thriving with her grandparents for many years, Tara was suddenly diagnosed with various illnesses and prescribed heavy medication. Eventually, she suffered from dependencies on this pharmaceutical medication, starting in her early teens. Doctors told her that she would need this medication for the rest of her life. More and more illnesses and pills followed, and this unhealthy pattern continued for over a decade.
Inspired by her visions of a better life, Tara was determined to live in pursuit of her passions. She ambitiously quit over a dozen pharmaceuticals cold-turkey and began her natural wellness journey in order to give her body the break it was desperately craving. Tara went on to move across the country to California, successfully treat her illnesses naturally and live her dreams. She has designed a life full of abundant happiness, success, wellness and creative fun.
At just 29 years old, Tara has sang, performed and spoken all around the globe and has recently taken the world by storm with her first book, Cured by Nature.
