    In the twentieth anniversary edition of Healing the Soul of America, Marianne Williamson reclaims her powerful voice for social conscience in American society. This is a time, according to Williamson, for Americans to return once again to our first principles, both politically and spiritually. Here, Williamson draws plans to transform the American political consciousness and encourage powerful citizen involvement to heal our society.

    With updated material throughout, Williamson explores the current state of American politics, reminding us of her theory of holistic politics—the convergence of political activists looking toward spiritual wisdom and spiritual contemplatives extending their service into the political landscape. She believes that a morally concerned American must now take an active stand in turning this country away from its current identity as a nation obsessively in love with its money to a nation more seriously invested in all of its children and the potential brilliance of every citizen.

    “Marianne Williamson…is attempting to…help not only her followers but an entire nation.” — People Magazine In the wake of the current political dysphoria, with countless tragedies consistently on the nightly news, America is facing a time of immense division. Political parties that completely polarize friends and family, mass shootings, threats of nuclear war, and a lack of confidence in our governmental leaders show that the country is in desperate need of restoration. We need a new paradigm of political understanding, a moral commitment to express it, and a new kind of activism to bring it forth. Healing the Soul of America is a blueprint for all three and there has never been a more urgent need.
    “A huge and wonderous surprise... The Healing of America somehow makes us proud to be Americans, because every hope for democracy seems newly without our grasp.” — Patricia Holt, San Francisco Chronicle

    This stirring departure from Williamson's usual subject matter cuts to the heart of our dilemma and brings new energy to the search for solutions." —Yoga Journal

    As she did while she was a presidential candidate, author and spiritual counselor Marianne Williamson analyzes the country's problems from a spiritual point of view. She wants us to "reclaim our voice as spiritual citizens" and thereby understand how the dearth of spiritual values underlies many of our problems. She writes lucidly and effectively, without cliches or jargon, and shows us a point of view not offered by other leaders and politicians. Her viewpoint, to my mind, has a lot of validity, and I strongly recommend her book. — Murry Cohen
