Should We Seek to Change the World? A Conversation with Marianne Williamson


A Course in Miracles famously says “Seek not to change the world” and even declares “There is no world!” What, then, do we do as Course students about trying to save and heal the world? This question came vividly to the fore when bestselling author and Course teacher Marianne Williamson ran for President of the United States in 2019 and continues to strike a chord to this day. Within the Course community, some students see involvement in the world as an abandonment of Course principles while others feel it is an extension of them. But what does the Course itself teach? In this episode of Exploring A Course in Miracles, Circle of Atonement founder Robert Perry and executive director Emily Bennington discuss this topic with Marianne herself. NOTE: Exploring A Course in Miracles podcasts are recorded live (typically every other Monday at 11am Eastern) and then released on YouTube and various podcast outlets including iTunes and Spotify. Attending the live recording is free and all are invited. To receive the access link, please visit via circleofa.org/events.
