Marianne Williamson on Spirituality and Politics

By Deborah O’Rell

November 10th and 11th. Live in Los Angeles or streaming on the web.

Marianne Williamson is leading an amazing conversation called Sister.Giant. It is the merging of consciousness and women and politics.

I went to hear her speak in Manhattan last week and to say it was inspiring doesn’t begin to describe the feeling.

Women are 51% of the population and less than 17% of our elected representatives. It’s not difficult to understand why people don’t want to get involved in politics; it’s harsh and brutal.

But if more women were part of the conversation, do we really believe we’d be having these types of conversations? That a woman’s right to choose, which is a private,moral decision, could be over turned? That contraceptive coverage can be made by a woman’s employer?

This weekend is an exploration of changing the paradigm of the discussion. She says it so brilliantly. Rather than money being the bottom, it’s time we stand for love being the bottom line in healing ourselves, the planet, relationships. This is the impact women can have on the discussion.

23.1% of all children in the United States live in poverty which makes us second only to Romania among 35 developed nations. Why is no one talking about this?

If you can’t make it to LA, stream it. I will be watching. This is important.
