She is the author of several self help books. Six of them have been New York Times bestsellers and four of them have held the #1 spot.

Williamson has made numerous appearances on radio and television talk shows such as Larry King and Oprah. Newsweek named her as one of the top 50 most influential baby boomers.

The Life of Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson was born on July 8, 1952 to a loving family. She lived in Houston and attended a class on 'A Course in Miracles' at a Unity church there. She credits this class with changing the course of her life and sowing the beginnings of her career.

She felt led to move to Los Angeles and begin teaching classes on 'A Course in Miracles.' During this time, she slowly built up a following, and her classes and seminars became more popular. She became a sought after speaker and spiritual counselor to movie stars in LA.




In addition to being a speaker and author of self help books, Marianne Williamson is also a spiritual activist. In 1989, she founded a meals on wheels program in Los Angeles called Project Angel Food that supplies nourishing food to homebound people with AIDS. Williamson also founded The Peace Alliance which supports pending congressional legislation that would establish a United States Department of Peace.

The Teachings of Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson was heavily influenced by 'A Course in Miracles' which is based on the principal that love is the only true thing.

Williamson explains that people react out of love or fear. The purpose of our spiritual development is to shine love on fear to dispel it and therefore live authentic lives.

She further teaches there is no final goal with enlightenment, as life is always a struggle because conflict makes us grow. Once a level of understanding and enlightenment is achieved, the Universe sends in another lesson to be learned.

She suggests our deepest fear isn't that we are inadequate but rather that we are very powerful, and with this power are able to create miracles on earth through the power of love.

Marianne Williamson teaches it isn't easy to live with the intent of love, but it is the lesson of a lifetime and will help us manifest good in our lives.

Living out of love rather than fear can be applied to individuals as well as communities and nations. Williamson has the vision of using such intent on a grand scale to bring about peace on earth, but she cautions the change has to start on an individual level and blossom out from there.
