Marianne Williamson

Pain, Suffering, and Finding Peace

Sometimes I bring spiritual leaders on The School of Greatness and they always blow my mind.

No matter what your spiritual beliefs are, I believe there is so much to learn from asking the big questions about life.

So when I got the chance to sit down with Marianne Williamson, I was really excited – even though what we talked about was suffering, pain, and trials.

So why was I excited?

Marianne is an incredible author, speaker, and spiritual leader who has written many bestselling books on topics like relationships, faith, miracles, and mindfulness.




"Your ego mind is your self-hatred masquerading as your self-love."  

Her newest book, however, is all about how to find value and progress in tough times.

So pretty much everyone on the planet can relate.

I absolutely loved what we discussed, and Marianne was so generous in sharing her wisdom and candor.

This is an episode I feel like you’ll want to share with the people you care about.

I invite you to listen in and think about suffering in a new way in Episode 347.
