For the Love of Social Change: A Call to 21st Century Political Leadership
An Interview with Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson is an internationally acclaimed spiritual author and lecturer. Six of her ten published books have been New York Times Best Sellers. Some of Marianne's books include: A Return to Love, The Age of Miracles, Everyday Grace, A Woman's Worth, Illuminata, and Healing the Soul of America.
In this dialogue, I engage Marianne Williamson on her views regarding the importance of bringing spirituality and politics together into an integrated conversation for 21st century leadership. We explore Marianne’s own passionate spiritual journey through the work of The Course in Miracles, and discuss her political ideals for the future. We also discuss Marianne's current project Sister Giant, which aims to get more women into positions of political leadership.
Marianne is a native of Houston, Texas. In 1989, she founded Project Angel Food, a meals-on-wheels program that serves homebound people with AIDS in the Los Angeles area. Today, Project Angel Food serves over 1,000 people daily. Marianne also founded the Department of Peace Campaign, a grass roots campaign to establish a United States Department of Peace.
In December 2006, a NEWSWEEK magazine poll named Marianne Williamson one of the fifty most influential baby boomers. She has been a popular guest on television programs such as Oprah, Larry King Live, Good Morning America and Charlie Rose.
