Vala: Books from a better world

Whether it is leadership, zen cooking, storytelling, forgiveness or creative writing, all our books explore brave and authentic ways of thinking and being.

While our style is welcoming and personal, we publish powerful and distinctive narratives to help you think and act differently, in response to the challenges of our time. Our aim is to help you discover strength and inspiration through lived stories of learning and transformation.

We are a cooperative. Our members include authors, readers and book professionals.
