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.

    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.

    "Slow down..."

    Marianne's style will suit some people, probably those people in a real hurry. The content of the book is great, but the frieght train pace quickly makes one a little nauseous.

    Story
    "Changed my life"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Return to Love to be better than the print version?

    Yes, especially because it's read by the author, and it brings the story and ideas to life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I find truth in this story


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There is no favorite "scene", it's not really that type of story.


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

    Not necessarily, but I've read the book, listened on CD, and now listen on Audible. It's very inspirational. And like the author - every time you come back to it, you learn something new.

    "Too "New Age-y" for me"

    The author writes of something called "a course in miracles" as if it were a religion. I don't care for it.

    "Life changer"

    Read this to realize love in every area of your life. It speaks of God and spirituality a lot, if those deter you replace those with something else. The basis of this book will change your life, love, work and relationships for the better.

    "Too fast"

    The recording was fast. I had to switch to a slower speed to be able to fully comprehend and digest what is being said. But the content is absolutely beautiful.

    "Inaudible..."

    The quality of the sound makes it a challenge.
    Couldn't be bothered struggling through the entire thing. Bit of a let down

    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.
