©1997 Marianne Williamson (P)1997 Hay House
I really enjoyed this audiobook. I was able to listen to Marianne at the Health Club or while cooking/cleaning. It was a perfect audiobook because her ideas were clear and true and it didn't matter if I forgot where I left off -- all of it contained valuable insights that didn't have to be understood by what came before. So I was always starting fresh - not having to remember where it left off. Marianne is a dynamic and sincere seeker and it comes through clearly in her audio....
Never dull. This is a very practical hands on spiritual summary of the Course in Miracles, a really amazing psychological review of Christian spiritual principles. When you listen to it, you know it's good, and right and works.
Williamson is awesome! Got a problem? Need some well-founded inspiration? Ready to move forward in your life?? THIS IS IT!
I will definitely be listening again despite the appalling old tape cassette sound quality. The content is practical, easy to relate to and Marianne's delivery is very personable and without monotonousness, preachiness nor dryness. The feminine touch brings a deeper and more empathetic connection to the material which I, as a male, appreciate tenfold over male speakers. Marianne brings an emotionally relatable connection to the course content. Her reflections upon the manner in which the course has its place in every day perception brings the course down to the level at which I feel it has the greatest potential to change minds and open hearts.
The sound quality of this recording is the cause of 2 stars for overall audiobook presentation. The recording here is intermittently of degraded clarity, and the recording is obviously provided 'as is' from an old tape cassette source. The change in sound quality is apparent when the tape sides are changed (roughly every 40 minutes) and the sound is considerably muffled for the whole side.
Listening whilst driving I had to set Treble to maximum, Bass to minimum and turn up the volume yet it was still difficult to understand what Marianne was saying. Many passages I couldn't understand at all.
The fact that at times you will receive a less than perfected audio quality product from Audible.com has at such incidents caused me to look elsewhere for a higher sound quality version, and I have found higher quality on other audiobook sites.
Still, this in no way stops me from encouraging that people purchase this audiobook. Marianne's approach, understanding and love for the Course In Miracles material is simply too valuable to miss.
Yes, this book was very insightful for many different areas of life.
This is my first Marianne Williamson book to read/listen to but will be doing more of it.
This book had many AH-HA moments for me.
There are so many wonderful insights, every time I listen to these lectures I hear and understand it deeper.
Clear, easy, soulmedicine.
Return to Love. Similar in concepts. Enlightening, real for most people and the challenges we all face.
No... You need to have time to give your full attention and focus. Baby steps for big, long lasting change and spiritual growth.
Marianne Williamson is for everyone! Those who may be wondering about spiritual awakening, inner peace and problem solving; and those who have been "on their path" for some time. She is real. Her messages are real. I recommend this book.
I love this as it is. Its perfect, its funny, its amazing!
It was easy to follow. Its a book that you can pick up and read anywhere, just open the book and there you have it!
