Marianne Williamson joins us to discuss her newest book, Tears to Triumph: The Spiritual Journey from Suffering to Enlightenment , to argue that our desire to avoid pain is detrimental to our lives, disconnecting us from our deepest emotions, preventing true healing and spiritual transcendence.
Our culture, she says, encourages us to numb, medicate or divert attention from our pain—anything to avoid facing it. But in refusing to acknowledge our suffering, we prolong it and ultimately limit our growth and our opportunity for enlightenment. Frozen by denial, we are left standing in the breach. Whole industries profit from this immobility, and while they grow rich, we become spiritually poorer. True healing and transcendence can only come when we face our pain and wrestle with what it has to teach us, to come to a deeper awareness of our feelings, our lives, and our true selves.
Marianne Williamson, an internationally acclaimed lecturer and massively best-selling writer, is the author of such classics as A Return to Love, Everyday Grace and, most recently, Tears to Triumph. Williamson also founded Project Angel Food, a meals-on-wheels program that serves over 1000 homebound people in the Los Angeles area daily, and co-founded the Global Renaissance Alliance (GRA), a worldwide network of peace activists. www.marianne.com See her at the Open Center in NYC on July 12th.

- Sandra Lee Schubert The Art of Storytelling - leading people to telling their best storiesReaching Out: On Air, Online and In Person, present
- Conversations with Creative Vagabonds, Thinkers and InnovatorsProducer and host, 2008 - present
Sandra Lee Schubert has always been a storyteller. At nine she created her first family newsletter that told the horrifying tale of giant pizza that attacked New York. Luckily the Empire State building saved the day once again by stopping the wayward pizza in its track. OK, it took days to clean up the cheese but who cared; New York City was safe again.
Later in life she created a writers group at the magnificent Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine; offering a diverse selection of speakers to inspire writers to craft their own masterpieces. Each year they spread their words through an anthology and yearly reading.
Writing for Life: Creating a Story of Your Own, an online subscription course, was developed when Sandra saw that people had a real desire to tell their own unique stories; in a few short lessons you can craft your own life tale.
Sandra continues to introduce people to the unique stories of others by developing, producing and hosting her own radio show on BlogTalkRadio. Conversations with Creative Vagabonds, Thinkers and Innovators weekly show brings on guests with diverse stories for an intimate 45 minute conversation. She has interviewed priests, PR executives, hotel owners all with a unique story to share.
Her diverse background has gifted her with many opportunities for new experiences and points of view that give her the flexibility to work with people in many fields. Behind it all has been the desire to give people the opportunity to tell their authentic story in any way possible."Women who live the life of their dreams don't get there by being dainty and darling. They demand what they want and they do what it takes to make it happen. That could mean breaking a few rules, a few hearts, and a few habits along the way, especially the habit of apologizing for who you are."
