Marianne speaks about the themes of her new book Tears to Triumph
Description: 

Our personal suffering is often a sacred initiation into a deeper experience of who we are as people, and why we’re on the earth. Today, Marianne will explore the origins of deep sadness through a spiritual lens, in order to illumine the path that leads beyond.

  • Emotional torment — why is such suffering a part of our experience? What does it mean? And how can we survive it and even transcend it?
  • What is the response to suffering at the heart of all great religious teachings?
  • Why is it important to be fully available to our suffering, as opposed to suppressing it or numbing it?
  • Why has our suffering become a profit center for the pharmaceutical industry?
  • What is the relationship between our suffering as individuals and the collective forces that are depressing us all?
  • What is the role of forgiveness and love in freeing us from our pain? What are the spiritual principles that deliver us to happiness, and how do we apply them?

The premiere seats are the first 6 rows of the theatre. You will receive a free gift and book signing with Marianne!

About the speaker, Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson is an internationally acclaimed spiritual author and lecturer. Seven of her twelve published books have been New York Times Best Sellers. The mega best seller A Return to Love is considered a must-read of The New Spirituality. A 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 Law of Divine Compensation, The Age of Miracles, Everyday Grace, A Woman’s Worth, Illuminata, Healing the Soul of America, A Course in Weight Loss, The Gift of Change, Enchanted Love, A Year of Miracles, and her newest book, Tears to Triumph: The Spiritual Journey from Suffering to Enlightenment.

Marianne is a native of Houston, Texas. In 1989, she 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 8 million meals.  Marianne also co-founded the Peace Alliance. And she serves on the Board of Directors of the RESULTS organization, working to end the worst ravages of hunger and poverty throughout the world.

According to Time magazine, “Yoga, the Cabala and Marianne Williamson have been taken up by those seeking a relationship with God that is not strictly tethered to Christianity.”
