Review

Patricia Holt San Francisco Chronicle A huge and wondrous surprise....The Healing of America somehow makes us proud to be Americans, because every hope for democracy seems newly within our grasp.

Jann Mitchell The Oregonian A long-needed breath of fresh air.

Yoga Journal 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.

This is an absolutely wonderful book!!! It is a must-read for anyone who would like to see changes made in the world, and especially in the political system. Written at the dawn of the millenium, it is even more profound and timely today. Every page has quotes worth saving, every example has meaning, every solution resonates. Ms. Williamson is a very talented writer, and she has cut to the heart with this book, in more ways than one. She outlined very articulately EVERYTHING that has been bothering me. She not only nailed all of the problems, but she also gives solutions, and provides blueprints and resources.
This book spoke to me at first sight. However, I was expecting it to be a different kind of book, so I pushed it to the side, with good intentions. It sat on the shelf patiently whispering to me, and I would whisper back -"Yes, when the time is right, I'll pick you up." Well, THE TIME IS RIGHT!!! Wow, is it ever!!! Now I've read it, I want to trumpet it to all the world. For anyone sick at heart at the state of things in this country, and an ache in their soul to see a change in the status quo -- get this book. It is insightful, intelligent, significant, profound, and unforgettable. Pick it up, read it, and then tell at least ten friends about it who have a social conscience. Let's begin - NOW!

In HEALING THE SOUL OF AMERICA, RECLAIMING OUR VOICES AS SPIRITUAL CITIZENS, Marianne Williamson has written eloquently on the spiritual nature of our humanity and an overdue book on the essential spiritual aspects for a healthy democracy. Spirituality in the practice of true democracy is rarely acknowledged by civic teachers, academics, politicians, theologians or even spiritual writers. In this book, Marianne does so very well. However I find she has a rather optimistic view of a spiritual awakening in America that would be insufficient to bring about radical social change.

To me, much of religion in America has failed to transform the majority of the faithful in a spiritual way, to see through new eyes, the eyes of compassion and love, to see through the LIES of a ruthless capitalistic culture. Marianne Williamson does though make a most powerful point: "There is an important distinction to be made between a religiously based and spirituality based political impulse. While religion is a force that either creatively or noncreatively separates us, spirituality is a force that unites us by reminding us of our fundamental oneness. The religionization of American politics is dangerous, the spiritualization of our political consciousness is imperative". Yes, I certainly agree, but I question whether we will ever see radical social change in America without massive non violent public demonstrations.

As Franciscan Father Richard Rohr often says, religion in America has become a belonging system of individual personal piety, a sense of feeling superior, "us against them", rather than a system that seeks a deep personal spiritual transformation.

Marianne Williamson speaks of the essential spiritual dynamics of democracy itself.

The title is misleading. Everyone on the planet should read this book, not just Americans. If there was one book, that could change the world, this would be it. If your thinking about getting the book, don't think, do it. This is a deep call to true healing, especially when the world is such a scary place for so many. There is no more important time for us all to take a stand for loving one another and deciding that we are going to take back America and the world, for a truly meaningful existence.

I loved this book. It was very moving and written with a passionate voice. Marianne goes deep into the issues that are wrong with our government including spending more money on defense than any other country in the world and having the highest prison population in the world among other important issues. Anyone who cares about our government and changing our government for the people should read this book. My only issue with this book is that Marianne constantly refers to our system of government as a democracy. This is not accurate since our system of government is actually a constitutional republic.

As author of [...] it is my pleasure to emphasize here the importance of the concepts presented in Marianne Williamson's "Healing The Soul of America" book, which I recommended as a reference in my own recent book. Marianne writes lucidly about that point in our spiritual lives when we are ready to rise up from any tendencies to hide away from the things that need our attention in the world, and to step into a spiritual life that is active and involved. It seems to me that it is vitally important at this time in history that each of us find that internal flow into those actions and interactions in the world, big or small, which are uniquely our own. Thank you Marianne for your contribution in having written this book.

I love Marianne Williamson but very disappointed that it was so much into the history of our country, rather than in how we ourselves need to become the change we want to see in the world. I kept hanging in there thinking I would get more out of this but it never happened. I thought this book read very slow and boring. Sorry Marianne.
