Episode Description

Patricia interviews for the whole hour, Marianne Williamson author of Tears to Triumph: The Spiritual Journey from Suffering to Enlightenment, which she offers a spiritual perspective on the epidemic of depression that has engulfed our society. Based on a career of over three decades counseling people in depressing, even life-challenging situations and drawing upon her own deep periods of grief, Marianne Williamson argues that much of what we refer to as ‘depression’ is not a medical disease, rather a spiritual one. Williamson argues against what she calls the “pathologizing of normal human suffering,” looking at the radical application of love and forgiveness as spiritual solutions to a spiritual disease. Marianne will discuss how we can survive and transcend suffering,why is it important to be fully available to our suffering, the relationship between individual and collective suffering, and the spiritual principles that deliver us from our pain and how to apply them.
