Publisher's Summary

In A Return to Love, Marianne Williamson shares her reflections on A Course in Miracles and her insights on the application of love in the search for inner peace.

Williamson reveals how we each can become a miracle worker by accepting God and by the expression of love in our daily lives. Whether our psychic pain is in the area of relationships, career, or health, she shows us how love is a potent force, the key to inner peace, and how by practicing love we can make our own lives more fulfilling while creating a more peaceful and loving world for our children.

    The audio books I get tend to be either 1) scifi or 2) things for my husband and me to listen to on long road trips--humor or history

    Story
    "Easily the most life-changing book I've ever read"

    I'm not sure how I would have felt about this book if I had encountered it 5 years ago, but between then and now, I have worked with a personal coach and started my own personal growth journey. The journey has moved forward in an on-again, off-again fashion (mostly off!) but I know I have changed and grown in a positive direction. It all started when working with my coach, when with her prodding, I experienced a breakthrough insight. I have called that moment a miracle because within days, my relationship with my husband made a 180 degree turn from negative to positive. And it is still on that positive trend now, five years later.

    Listening to “A Return to Love,” I heard echoes of many of the things my coach was trying to tell me back then, but which I was not ready to hear. Now, it seems I am ready and many, many things in this book sparked recognition and understanding for me.

    This book also created another miracle in my life. While reading it, I was suddenly moved to buy a plane ticket to visit a close friend. Without going into the details, I firmly believe that had I not made that impromptu visit, she would be dead right now. Not only that, but the concepts in the book are helping me know how to react to her situation in a healthy way that hopefully will contribute to her ability to heal herself.

    This book is not for everyone, but if you have begun to explore the concept that it is our thoughts that mold our own reality, then you may be ready for “A Return to Love.”

    [I listened to this as an audio book read by the author. She reads very well and also very quickly, so I slowed the speed down a bit. Also, I didn’t realize it when I bought it, but I listened to an abridged version. This is a great way to be introduced to this topic, and I would recommend the abridged version if you are hesitating. If you are as inspired by this short version as I have been, the full version awaits!]

    Story
    "Good introduction to Course of Miracles"
    Where does A Return to Love rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Felt too short and brief. Every topic is covered very briefly in it. Leaves you hungry for more. Never gets deep enough into anything...


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    This is an Abridged version, and is obviously so. It seems to have been chopped very short. It seems that Marianne Williamson has attempted to fit as many words as she could into the allotted time, and they are quality words, but the result is that she had to read it very fast, which is at odds with the material covered. It almost sounds as if it has been speeded up! The material would suit a slower presentation. Marianne Williamson's delivery and voice is otherwise very listenable to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    One or two sittings, yes.

    Story
    "A mixed message"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was not for me. The message focuses on self-acceptance, surrender, non-judgement and the faith that you will be rewarded for your interests. If you listen closely, the message switches to scolding when the actors can't get a job (perhaps your heart wasn't pure enough to receive wealth, because you wanted wealth). God wants you to be rich but, he wants you to get there by not desiring wealth and if you don't get it there's more shaming. I don't have these problems now, so, it sounded rambling. There are groups that worship poverty, so, I get it.


    Would you recommend A Return to Love to your friends? Why or why not?

    For some people, those from a poor Evangelical background rooted in the worship of poverty, the need for positive self-talk is shattering. Clinging to wounds because God wanted you to be hurt is often the comforting 'Devil you know' and not as scary as the "Devils you don't know." If you need and want to reprogram yourself to be a more sociable, positive and visionary person, then yes, listen to Marianne.I gave her an average rating because she implies that what worked for her, will also work for you. It's a tough, tough world; the miracle is you will grow and you can do it. Yes, a positive wound healing self-talk is one in a toolbox of important skills. Equally important are job skills, communication skills, and optimum health.


    Which character – as performed by Marianne Williamson – was your favorite?

    When she give credit to a therapist who helped her. Loving God doesn't exclude you from finding books, therapist and support groups.


    Did A Return to Love inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The most painful part of overcoming trauma is the rain of criticism from other traumatized people. Self-talk, self-healing is essential.

    Story
    "A Course in Miracles Made Simple"

    As a student of ACIM - hearing this book is exactly how I came up with the headline.

    Marianne keeps it short, sweet and to the point leaving the listener with an understanding of what life is all about.
