Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson (1952)


Marianne Deborah Williamson (born July 8, 1952) is an American spiritual teacher, author and lecturer. She has published eleven books, including four New York Times number one bestsellers. She is the founder of Project Angel Food, a meals-on-wheels program that serves homebound people with AIDS in the Los Angeles area, and the co-founder of The Peace Alliance, a grassroots campaign supporting legislation to establish a United States Department of Peace.

She serves on the Board of Directors of the RESULTS organization, which works to end poverty in the United States and around the world.

Williamson has sold a combined total of more than 3,000,000 books, a canon which led The New York Times reporter Mark Leibovich to label her a "self-help guru".

A quote from her book A Return to Love, "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure," often attributed to Nelson Mandela, is one of the most oft-quoted passages of our time.
