Find Your Afterglow with author Ariel Meadow Stallings

Hey, I'm Ariel, and I've spent almost 20 years empowering folks to find a more joyful life full of self-inquiry and loving awareness. 

In the same way that my publication Offbeat Bride has helped 55 million folks plan authentic weddings, Find Your Afterglow supports you in finding more authentic expression through embodiment and personal development.

...Think of it as an offbeat glow-up.

Enroll in one of my online courses like Lapdances4god or Healing Anxious Attachment, or go all-in with The Afterglow Bundle, giving you an all-access to all my courses, writings, vlogs, and more. I'm here to cheerlead you getting balls-deep in self-awareness, empowerment, and sovereignty. 


My most recent book: Sh!tshow to Afterglow

My weirdly popular first book Offbeat Bride is now in its third edition, but my most recent book is From Sh!tshow to Afterglow: Putting Life Back Together When It All Falls Apart.

This book is about recovering from a life implosion.

For some of us it's a divorce, for some of us it's a health scare, for some of us it's losing a job... for some of us it was the entirety of 2020!

My personal crisis was a triple-punch of turning 40, a medical crisis, and an abrupt divorce. (WTF!)

As the dust settled, self-inquiry and personal development became hobby, my hookup, my sport, and my best friend.

It took me a few years to find the glow that comes after you heal, but now I'm here to help YOU find your afterglow: that point when you look into the gaping hole that used to be your old life and realize, "I might be able to grow some amazing things down here if I really try..."

From Sh!tshow to Afterglow

How can we work together?



As an author and web publisher, I've spent my entire life up in my head, nerding out and completely ignoring my body.

When my life fell apart in 2015, I tried using all my brain's best tools to heal... but it turned out my brain couldn't help. I tried everything -- reading books, talk therapy, seated meditation. My reward was crushing anxiety, insomnia, and debilitating panic attacks. 

In a moment of desperation, crying one night, I put on headphones and started dancing.

Six years later, I'm still dancing. It's the best spiritual practice I've got.

Now I'm stepping into my role as a dance doula, supporting folks as they birth their own daily dance practices.⁠ ⁠

Lapdances4god, my self-guided conscious movement online course, helps you develop a daily dance practice over the course of four weeks of daily video modules. 

Each module provides a conscious movement dance prompt, guiding you through the process of creating your own daily devotional dance practice... over five hours of content!

No choreography or zoom link here -- you dance on your time, in the ways that feel good to your body.
