DUHC Hosts Bestselling Author Marianne Williamson
Marianne has been at the forefront of reminding Americans of the need to put spirituality back into progressive politics and progressive politics into spirituality, and is coming to Humboldt County to support the cutting-edge work of Democracy Unlimited.
Four of her nine books have become #1 New York Times Bestsellers, and A Return to Love is considered a must-read of New Spirituality. A paragraph from that book-- "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure" -- is often misattributed to Nelson Mandela's Inaugural address. Marianne’s insightful phrase has become an anthem for many of us who are seeking to make deep and positive changes in both ourselves and in our society.
Marianne's other books include Everyday Grace, A Woman's Worth, Illuminata, Healing the Soul of America, The Age of Miracles and The Gift of Change.
She has been a regular and popular guest on television programs such as Oprah, Larry King Live, Good Morning America and Charlie Rose.
In 1989, Marianne 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.
She also founded The Department of Peace Campaign, a grass roots effort supporting legislation to establish a U. S. Department of Peace.
In December 2006, a Newsweek magazine poll named Marianne Williamson one of the fifty most influential baby boomers.
We will have copies of Everyday Grace, The Gift of Change, A Return to Love, The Age of Miracles available for sale and Marianne will try to do a limited book-signing after speaking.
