Марианна Уильямсон — американская писательница в жанре Нью Эйдж и self-help. Опубликовала 11 книг, 4 из которых стали бестселлерами № 1 по версии «Нью-Йорк Таймс». Книги её разошлись более чем в 300 тыс. экземплярах.

Родилась в еврейской семье юриста и домохозяйки, младшая из их трёх детей.

В 13 лет отец взял её во Вьетнам, чтобы она «увидела военно-индустриальную машину» в действии.

«Я выросла в политическо-ориентированной среде, еврейской семье, которая была очень интегрирована в жизнь общины. Поэтому для меня было естественно осознавать что моя работа ничего не значит если на каком-то уровне я не сопереживаю тому, что „где-то голодают дети“», — вспоминала М. Уильямсон.

Окончив школу в родном городе, она два года училась театральному искусству и философии в Помона-колледже в Клермонте, Калифорния. Затем она отправилась в Нью-Йорк делать карьеру певички. Уильямсон называет себя «дитём поколения 1960-х»: «Это было замечательное время, было много восточных религий, в которые люди начали обращаться».

В 1979 году вернулась в родной город.

В 1977 году она начала вести свой психологический тренинг-курс «Курс Чудес», который она называет основанным «на всеобщих духовных тематиках», «программой самообучения и самопознания», а также «курсом обучения прощению», на основе которого выйдет её первая книга «Возвращение к любви» .

Джин Ландрам в книге «Тринадцать женщин, которые изменили мир» пишет, что популярностью своей первой книги «Возвращение к любви» Уильямсон обязана своим появлением в телешоу О. Уинфри в феврале того года, после чего в течение чуть более недели разошёлся весь тираж книги. Уильямсон близка с О. Уинфри.

В 1990 году у неё родилась дочь, отца которой М. Уильямсон отказывается назвать и обсуждать, решая выростить её в одиночку как «незамужняя еврейская мать».

В 2014 году М. Уильямсон участвовала в выборах в Палату представителей США в округе в Калифорнии, заняла 4 место с 12,9 % голосов.

Участница многих благотворительных проектов и программ, в том числе связанных с больными СПИДом.

Автор книг «Возвращение к любви», «Исцелить душу Америки», «Ценность женщины», «Иллюмината» , «Благодать повседневной жизни», «Дар перемен» и «Век чудес», «Магическая любовь: таинственная сила близких отношений» и других.

Репортёр «Нью-Йорк Таймс» Марк Лейбович назвал её «гуру самопомощи» .

Цитаты«Я изучаю сравнение религий и восхищена основными принципами Вселенной её магическими принципами. Это то, о чём я пишу и то на чём сконцентрирована моя работа».

«Когда я держу в руках ребёнка, легко увидеть его невинность и чистоту. После того, как человек уже прожил какое то время в этом мире, он уже не так чист и невинен. И способность увидеть первоначальную чистоту и невинность человека, и есть способность его возродить».

„Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.“

„As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.“

— Marianne Williamson
Context: Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. Ch. 7 : Work, §3 : Personal Power, p. 190 (p. 165 in some editions). This famous passage from her book is often erroneously attributed to Nelson Mandela. About the mis-attribution Williamson said, "Several years ago, this paragraph from A Return to Love began popping up everywhere, attributed to Nelson Mandela's 1994 inaugural address. As honored as I would be had President Mandela quoted my words, indeed he did not. I have no idea where that story came from, but I am gratified that the paragraph has come to mean so much to so many people." Variant which appears in the film Coach Carter (2005): "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." Variant which appears in the film Akeelah and the Bee (2006), displayed in a picture frame on the wall, attributing it to Mandela: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

„We are no longer ambitious for ourselves, but are rather inspired by the vision of a healed world.“

— Marianne Williamson
Context: The thought system that dominates our culture is laced with selfish values, and relinquishing those values is a lot easier said than done. The journey to a pure heart can be highly disorienting. For years we may have worked for power, money and prestige. Now all of a sudden we’ve learned that those are just the values of a dying world. We don’t know where to search for motivation anymore. If we’re not working in order to get rich, then why are we working at all? What are we supposed to do all day? Just sit home and watch TV? Not at all, but thinking so is a temporary phase many people go through — when the values of the old world no longer have a hold on us, but the values of the new don’t yet grab your soul. They will. There comes a time, not too long into the journey to God, when the realization that the world could work beautifully if we would give it the chance, begins to excite us. It becomes our new motivation. The news isn’t how bad things are. The news is how good they could be. And our own activity could be part of the unfolding of Heaven on earth. There is no more powerful motivation than to feel we’re being used in the creation of a world where love has healed all wounds. We are no longer ambitious for ourselves, but are rather inspired by the vision of a healed world. Inspiration rearranges our energies. It sources within us a new power and direction. We no longer feel like we’re trying to carry a football to the finish line, clutching it to our chest and surrounded by hostile forces. We feel instead as though angels are pushing us from behind and making straight our path as we go. Ch. 7 : Work, §9 : Sales to Service

„Purity of heart will not make us poor.“

— Marianne Williamson
Context: Purity of heart will not make us poor. The exaltation of poverty as a spiritual virtue is of the ego, not the spirit. A person acting from a motivation of contribution and service rises to such a level of moral authority, that worldly success is a natural result. Give all your gifts away in service to the world. If you want to paint, don’t wait for a grant. Paint a wall in your town that looks drab and uninviting. You never know who’s going to see that wall. Whatever it is you want to do, give it away in service to your community. Ch. 7 : Work, §9 : Sales to Service

„A miracle worker is an artist of the soul. There’s no higher art than living a good life.“

— Marianne Williamson
Context: A miracle worker is an artist of the soul. There’s no higher art than living a good life. An artist informs the world of what’s available behind the masks we all wear. That’s what we’re all here to do. The reason so many of us are obsessed with becoming stars is because we’re not yet starring in our own lives. The cosmic spotlight isn’t pointed at you; it radiates from within you. Ch. 7 : Work, §3 : Personal Power
