What an absolute joy and privilege to welcome my dear friend Marianne Williamson (read her books and find her on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!) back to the show to catch up with her after her groundbreaking campaign for the office of President. As always she is deeply authentic and broad in the scope of her wisdom. We touch on so many issues here and I came way once again, so profoundly touched and inspired. Marianne is an American original and a source of leadership I am confident we will see again. Take a listen and tell me what you feel.
Marianne Williamson is a bestselling author, political activist and spiritual thought leader.
For over three decades Marianne has been a leader in spiritual and religiously progressive circles. She is the author of 14 books, four of which have been #1 New York Times best sellers. A quote from the mega best seller A Return to Love, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure…” is considered an anthem for a contemporary generation of seekers.
Williamson founded Project Angel Food, a non-profit that has delivered more than 12 million meals to ill and dying homebound patients since 1989. The group was created to help people suffering from the ravages of HIV/AIDS. They have since expanded their service to any person battling critical illness. She has also worked throughout her career on poverty, anti-hunger and racial reconciliation issues. She has advocated for reparations for slavery since the 1990’s and was the first candidate in the 2020 presidential primary season to make it a pillar of her campaign. In 2004, she co-founded The Peace Alliance and supports the creation of a U.S. Department of Peace. In addition, she advocates for a cabinet level Department of Children and Youth to adequately address the chronic trauma of millions of American children.
Marianne is a native of Houston, Texas.
