Marianne Williamson's Presidential Candidacy

Exploring A Course in Miracles

Apr 3 2023 • 49 mins

Marianne Williamson is running for president. The person who is probably most associated in the public mind with A Course in Miracles is running for the most powerful office in the world. What should we as Course students think and feel about that? Some believe the Course has nothing to do with politics. But what does the Course itself say?

In this episode, Emily and Robert talk about Marianne’s candidacy—what it means for the Course and what it might mean for the country. They talk about FDR's “Four Freedoms” and how they are an unexpected meeting place between Marianne’s political vision and A Course in Miracles. Robert and Emily also talk about how we as Course students might welcome Marianne's candidacy even if we may not completely share her political outlook. Either way, A Course in Miracles has in some sense marched onto the national political stage. Join Robert and Emily as they navigate through the choppy waters of what this means for students of this path.
