The Afterglow is my favorite place on the internet, and it's actively expanding...I'm always adding new essays, guided meditations, and courses. Plus, I host monthly chats and giveaways for members with prizes valued in the hundreds of dollars!

Ariel's work has taught me to be kinder and more compassionate; her work introduced me to the joy and comfort of being radically yourself and radically inclusive.

Serene C.

The Afterglow is one of my small but impactful acts of self care. Ariel gives inspiring, challenging, and thought-provoking essays which often turn the mundane into the magical.

Her process resonates big time.
