Special Speaker

Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson is a bestselling author, political activist and spiritual thought leader.
For over three decades Marianne has been a leader in spiritual and religiously progressive circles. She is the author of 14 books, four of which have been #1 New York Times best sellers. A quote from the mega best seller A Return to Love, “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.

Williamson founded Project Angel Food, a non-profit that has delivered more than 14 million meals to ill and dying homebound patients since 1989. The group was created to help people suffering from the ravages of HIV/AIDS. They have since expanded their service to any person battling critical illness. She has also worked throughout her career on poverty, anti-hunger and racial reconciliation issues. She has advocated for reparations for slavery since the 1990’s and was the first candidate in the 2020 presidential primary season to make it a pillar of her campaign. In 2004, she co-founded The Peace Alliance and supports the creation of a U.S. Department of Peace. In addition, she advocates for a cabinet level Department of Children and Youth to adequately address the chronic trauma of millions of American children. In 2021, Marianne launched MarianneWilliamson.Substack.com.

Marianne is a native of Houston, Texas.

Presentations & Workshops

Spirituality and Mental Health

At their peak, spirituality and psychotherapy are the same thing - a healing of the mind when out of alignment with its natural state. Spirituality rejects the prevalence of indulgent self-reference at the core of much modern psychotherapy, positing that happiness stems not from further analysis of the self but rather from transcendence of the self. The journey to happiness lies not in a deeper understanding of the vicissitudes of darkness, but in a greater embrace - and experience - of the principles of light.

Participants will:

1) Learn how spiritual principles impact the paradigm of traditional psychotherapy.

2) Identify spiritual keys that help overcome anxiety and depression.  

3) Learn how and why relationships are assignments created by an intentional universe.

4) Learn the spiritual basics of a self organizing and self-correcting universe.
