Wiki

Marianne Williamson (born July 8, 1952) is a spiritual activist, author, lecturer and founder of The Peace Alliance, a grass roots campaign supporting legislation currently before Congress to establish a United States Department of Peace. She is also the founder of Project Angel Food, a meals-on-wheels program that serves homebound people with AIDS in the Los Angeles area. She has published nine books, including four New York Times #1 bestsellers.

Her newest book, THE AGE OF MIRACLES: Embracing the New Midlife, was published in January 2008 and spent five weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list. Her latest professional venture is a weekly radio show on "Oprah & Friends", which airs on XM Satellite Radio. 

Williamson is a minister in the Unity Church. The driving force behind her philosophy is to offer a New Thought approach to spirituality.

She graduated from Pomona College in Claremont, CA, where her roommate was now-legendary film producer Lynda Obst.

She addresses both established Christianity and Judaism in statements such as "You've committed no sins, just mistakes." Her earliest renown was for her talks on A Course in Miracles, a step-by-step method for choosing love over fear. She credits her breakthrough to Oprah Winfrey, who invited her on to The Oprah Winfrey Show to discuss Williamson's first book A Return to Love, a book of which Oprah bought one thousand copies. She identifies with Zen Buddhism, that you must empty your mind through enlightenment to truly find God. She is also very good friends with fellow spiritual author Deepak Chopra, with whom she has done lectures.

A Course in Miracles
Marianne Williamson is a great writer, but she's an even better public speaker!  I enjoyed her books (esp. Enchanted Love), I devoured her lectures and seminars. And I've read a great many and listened to even more.   Marianne is most entertaining when she is speaking to an audience.  She speaks to a group but her power lies in that it feels like she's speaking to me alone & addressing my very personal problem as at that point in time. I could listen to her …

So much to learn from this author about life and relationships. She's one of the finest speakers in the Self-Enhancement arena.
