Marianne Williamson's Love America Tour


Our old friend and comrade in arms, Marianne Williamson, is starting a tour of the U.S. in which she'll be-- among other things-- introducing some of the Blue America candidates to her followers. She's just setting the dates now. In fact this morning she started working with Kaniela Ing to set up an event in Honolulu. So far though, these are the set dates:
Richmond Virginia, Huguenot High School Auditorium- Saturday, January 6, 2pm

Winston-Salem, Benton Convention Center- Sunday, January 7, 4pm with Jenny Marshall

Raleigh, Unity Church- Friday, March 31, 7pm

Denver, Mile Hi Church- April 20, 7pm
Jenny Marshall, in a touch battle with far right incumbent Virginia Foxx in North Carolina, has been getting tremendous help from Marianne. "We are thrilled," she told us, "to have the help of Marianne as we fight for change in the 5th district. Since meeting Marianne back in June, she has shown us unwavering support.  We were thrilled to be included in the Sister Giant slate of endorsed candidates and now Marianne is coming to North Carolina as our special guest for a fundraiser.  The event is called Ignite the Change NC with Marianne Williamson.  It will take place on January 7th, 2018 at the Benton Convention Center 301 West 5th Street Winston-Salem, NC 27101.  We are hosting a private reception from 3:00-4:00pm for select ticket holders. the main event will be from from 4:00-6:00pm. Tickets can be purchased at this link.

Inviting her followers, Marianne noted that "The times in which we’re living are dramatic and unstable, yet pregnant with new possibilities for a future released from the shackles of fear. At a time when fear and hatred have been turned into a political force, is it possible to harness the powers of love and decency for political purposes as well?" And she has an answer:
Our task is to create a new, whole-person politics, breaking free of a paradigm based on a decidedly outdated view of the world and embracing a more enlightened understanding of our relation to the universe. We need a deeper, multi-dimensional understanding of our national story: where we have been, where we are, and where we need to go now.

As with other extraordinary times in our history-- from our Founding to Abolition to Women’s Suffrage to the Civil Rights era-- it is time once again to break free of an old way of being and embrace a new story going forward. As in the words of Abraham Lincoln, “… we must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country.”

I will be touring the country this year, discussing how a revolution in consciousness paves the way to both personal and national renewal. In the words of Martin Luther King, Jr., “Our goal is to create a beloved community and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives.”
This just came in as an email from Marianne as we were about to publish. And just as David Feldman was telling me that Derrick Crowe (TX-21) was the most effective guest I had gotten him for his podcast:
