Marianne Williamson on Self-Esteem

Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson is a dynamic speaker and writer whose work focuses on spirituality and the process of bringing spiritual themes "down to earth."  Marianne Williamson, in her lectures and books, discusses her work with A Course in Miracles, the process of coming to a sense of comfort and peace in her life, and the humanization of politics.  She also places great emphasis on connection and inclusivity among people of different genders, races, and orientations.

A Return to Love

In A Return to Love (review or buy), Marianne Williamson focuses on the principles of A Course in Miracles.  In her inimitable style, she expands on spiritual themes through stories of her own relationships, work experiences, and other aspects of her life. A Return to Love has been recognized as an enduring spiritual classic.

A Woman's Worth

Marianne Williamson's A Woman's Worth (review or buy) explores the contours of a woman's spiritual and emotional life. Filled with challenging observations and inspirational insight, the book champions the role of women in today's world. Although the book focuses on the feminine experience, it offers many insights for men as well.

Illuminata

In Illuminata (review or buy), Marianne Williamson brings prayer into daily life.  In this book there are prayers for forgiveness, prayers for couples, and prayers to heal the soul.  "Read my prayers or someone else's," Ms. Williamson says.  "By all means, create your own."  Illuminata shows that prayer is practical and important in our lives today.

Imagine

In the realm of highest possibilities, what could America look like in 50 years? Best-selling author Marianne Williamson posed these questions to nearly 40 of her well-known contemporaries. Imagine (review or buy) is their collective response: a powerful, provocative, and compelling vision of a better America and a prescriptive call to action for significant positive change.

Everyday Grace

In Everyday Grace (review or buy), Marianne Williamson explores a practical approach to spirituality. No matter where we are or what we're doing, says Ms. Williamson, there is the opportunity to be happy, and to be holy. The large and small difficulties of our days challenge us to open our hearts and minds. In this book of hours, Marianne Williamson teaches us to ride the currents that lurk in each of those moments of opening to a sea change of the soul.

The Gift of Change

In The Gift of Change (review or buy), author Marianne Williamson delves deeply into the powerful role of change in our lives today. Every change -- even the most difficult and painful -- gives us an opportunity to receive the miraculous gift of personal transformation. The only real failure in life, she observes, is the failure to grow from what we go through. We will find real growth when we reorient ourselves using an eternal compass of spiritual principles, which alone can guide us on this path to wholeness.
