Healing the Soul of America: Reclaiming Our Voices as Spiritual Citizens

Front Cover
Simon and Schuster, Feb 28, 2000 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 284 pages
Discover healing that reaches beyond the self from #1 New York Times bestselling author and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson.

In this landmark work, Marianne Williamson reminds us that there is a point in everyone's spiritual journey where the search for self-awareness can turn into self-preoccupation. All of us are better off when contemplation of holy principles is at the center of our lives. But it is in applying those principles in our lives that we forge the true marriage between heaven and earth.

In the compassionate but clear-eyed prose that has won her so many avid readers, Williamson shows us that the principles which apply to our personal healing also apply to the healing of the larger world. Calling on Americans to turn the compassion in our hearts into a powerful force for social good, Williamson shows us how to transform spiritual activism into a social activism that will in turn transform America into a nation seriously invested in the hope of every child and in the potential of every adult.
