About Elizabeth Gilbert

Named in TIME magazine’s “The 100 Most Influential People,” Elizabeth Gilbert inspires the world to seek internal happiness through empathy, journey, and acceptance. The author best known for her best-selling memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth proved she truly practices what she preaches when, in fall 2016, two months after announcing separation from her husband, she boldly revealed to her 1.6M+ Facebook followers her revelatory and profound love for another woman, best friend Rayya Elias, recently diagnosed with cancer. With viral posts chronicling her new journey to ever-supportive social media fans, Elizabeth continually shows us that “it’s all going to be ok.”
