Marianne Williamson is an internationally acclaimed spiritual author and lecturer — and an independent candidate for the United States presidency in 2020. She has been a popular guest on numerous television programs, including Oprah, Larry King Live, Good Morning America, Charlie Rose, and Real Time With Bill Maher.
Seven of her 12 published books have been New York Times bestsellers; four of these books have reached #1. The mega-bestseller A Return to Love is considered a must-read by advocates of The New Spirituality. A powerful paragraph from that book, beginning “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.
Marianne’s other books include The Age of Miracles... Everyday Grace... A Woman’s Worth... and Healing the Soul of America. Her most recent book is Tears to Triumph: The Spiritual Journey from Suffering to Enlightenment.
In 1989, Marianne founded Project Angel Food, a meals-on-wheels program that serves homebound people with AIDS in the Los Angeles area. To date, Project Angel Food has served over 10 million meals. She currently serves on the Advisory Board of the RESULTS organization, working to end the worst ravages of hunger and poverty throughout the world. Marianne also co-founded the Peace Alliance.
