As the granddaughter of illustrious author Ernest Hemingway, MARIEL HEMINGWAY appeared predestined to be well known and publicly recognized. However, at the tender age of 13, Mariel became famous in her own right when she made her silver screen debut in and Lipstick. Four years later, her work in Woody Allen's Manhattan earned her an Oscar nomination. She has since made 30 films as well as numerous television appearances in series and as a host of environmental and humanitarian documentaries.
Now 47, Mariel is the mother of two daughters: Dree, 22 and Langley, 20. She is also the fond caretaker of anywhere from two to six delightful dogs at a time. For over 20 years, Mariel has been pursuing her passion for yoga and health and is now seen as a voice of holistic and balanced health and well-being. As part of that role she has lead wellness retreats all over America, sharing her insights about movement, home, silence, and nutrition. Her books include a memoir Finding My Balance plus Mariel Hemingway's Healthy Living from the Inside Out, Mariel's Kitchen: Simple Ingredients for a Delicious and Satisfying Life, and Mariel’s Kitchen.
Mariel believes that caring for the health of the body, mind and spirit is the first step in becoming conscious of the health and well-being of the environment that surrounds us. She will speak on this subject at Harmony Festival with her partner, Bobby Williams.
