Our nation is waging war. Children are starving. Our personal lives are a source of conflict and pain. Sometimes it seems the only way to cope is to become numb. But Marianne Williamson sees a way for us to enter our pain and sadness and allow it to transform our lives and, ultimately, the world. She explains, “Life is not about not having problems. Life is about learning to be a person who dwells within problems in a way that transforms the suffering.” In this uplifting interview she applies her teachings from A Course in Miracles to the trials we face personally and globally, and creates a ground on which we can find hope and transformation in the darkest of times.
Marianne Williamson is an internationally acclaimed lecture and author of A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles” (Perennial Currents 1996), A Woman’s Worth (Random House 1993) and The Gift of Change: Spiritual Guidance for a Radically New Life (HarperSanFrancisco 2004).
