Publisher's Summary

In this audio, best-selling author Marianne Williamson delves deeply into the powerful role of change in our lives today. Far from something to fear and avoid, she says, every change, even the most difficult and painful, gives us an opportunity to receive the miraculous gift of personal transformation into what we are capable of becoming. The only real failure in life is the failure to grow from what we go through.
Williamson leads us across key bridges of transformation including:

From Forgetting Who We Are to Remembering Who We Are
From Negative Thinking to Positive Love
From Asking God to Change the World to Praying That He Change Us
From Living in the Past and Future to Living in the Now
From Separation to Relationship
From Your Plan to God's Plan
From Who We Were to Who We Are Becoming
These simple but profound changes empower us to see life's transitions as opportunities for growth and rebirth, providing not only keys for shaping our lives today, but also hope for transforming our world into a place of greater love and peace.

Stealth Christian Course in Miracles

I should have been warned by the way god was mentioned in several of the points this author advocates, but I wasn't. I began listening to this book thinking that it was advocating a spiritual, but not dogmatically Christian way of approaching change. When the author said in the preface to the book that her writing by a "Course in Miracles," something never mentioned in the reviews or summaries of this book, I knew I had wasted my money. If you are a Christian, you may find this book satisfactory, but for me, a Unitarian-Universalist with no particular dogma to my beliefs, this book was too heavy on the Christian message. This is unfortunate, because many elements of the author's message could be framed in a more eccumenical way that emphasizes the spiritual without equating spiritual with Christian. Change affects all of us, and if you set dogma aside, the ways that different religions deal with change are more alike than different. It is too bad the author did not recognize this or describe it.

Marianne Williamson is a great storyteller and she explains so well the philosophy behind a Course in Miracles. Well worth reading and thinking about! She has a great voice too.
