Renaissance woman Mariel Hemingway is not only an iconic Academy Award nominated actor from a celebrated family, she is a prolific author, adventurist, eco activist, healthy lifestyle and mental health advocate, yoga video star, a food brand entrepreneur, and a much sought after keynote speaker focused on mind-body-spirit optimization and purposeful living.

In a high-tech world, Mariel is considered an expert in offering high-touch solutions to finding the greatest sense of balance, peace, joy, fitness, integration, and authenticity possible. She is both a devoted teacher and a student in this holistic concentration.

In 2013, Mariel and her life partner, eco-enthusiast Bobby Williams, authored, Running With Nature. In this book, they share their insights about the import and impact of good nutrition, meditation, movement, silence, the beauty of simple living, connectedness to self and earth, and an awareness of simple timeless anti-aging modalities based on self-sustaining self-healing focused choices. Mariel and Bobby lecture at conferences, conventions, and on academic panels nationally, where those of like mind and heart gather to educate, engage, entertain, and to enrich each other's experiences.

Mariel was a series regular in Civil Wars, as well as being the narrator for the television series documentary Ernest Hemingway: Wrestling with Life.

In 2003, Mariel wrote her powerful best selling memoir, Finding My Balance, an honest and inspiring story of her life's journey through the lens of her personal yoga and meditation practices. Her second book, Mariel Hemingway's Healthy Living from the Inside Out, is a how-to guide to finding a greater sense of balance, joy, and meaning through self-empowering techniques and strategies. Her 2009 healthy lifestyle cookbook entitled, Mariel's Kitchen focused on creative and delicious gluten and sugar free offerings. It was one of the first on scene to shine the national spotlight on the benefits of this type of diet and lifestyle.

In 2013, a documentary about Mariel and the Hemingway family entitled, Running From Crazy was produced by Oprah Winfrey and premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The film focused on Mariel's boundless advocacy for mental health awareness.
