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.

My return to love

This book was suggested by my therapist. She warned that it might be too "religious" for me. I think this is the most impacting book I've read and I read a ton. It has sensitized me and awakened me like nothing else could. It changed my outlook entirely. . .and I've never said that before. It was a wonderful, human experience. I'm going to read it again and I can't even wait for the copy I lent to someone a couple of days ago!!!!

Just what I needed

I had this book on tape years ago and still do along with most of her stuff but I have not had a tape player to listen to it on for along time.I just downloaded it to my IPOD and can not wait to hear it again. She has a perfect understanding of human nature and knows exactly the right things to say to help you, help yourself through almost any situation. I would absolutely recommend this to any one who is looking for some spiritual guidance. I have all her other audibles in my wish list!

Explains "A Course in Miracles"

Introduced to A Course in Miracles by a group of AA members, I found it helpful but a bit of a challenge. This author provides a wonderful, practical, plain-english introduction that resurrected my interest in the more challenging text. By itself, "A Return To Love" is a nice piece of work for those who hear that quiet voice saying "something is out of tune." For me, it was. Williams helped me understand the problem and the solution in a way that enabled me to get better...much better.

Amazing book, but very low volume.

This book is unreal! The book will literally change your life, you'll be rethinking things that you were so sure about, you'll be looking at things from a different angle. My only complaint is that Marianne talks very low and it was very hard to understand her.

If you could sum up A Return to Love in three words, what would they be?

the whole world needs to hear or read this book ive listen to at least 3 times

What does Marianne Williamson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

passion

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

there is more to LOVE

Exactly what I needed...

I am going through a tough time in my life, and I needed inspiration, a deeper level in which to go to heal. I found _A Return to Love_ after listening to Marianne Williamson's _A Course in Weight Loss_, which I also liked very much as a spiritual solution to weight loss and freedom from eating disorders. Yes, the problems are still there, but I am beginning a deeper relationship with unconditional (God) love in my own heart. A good introduction to feeling more love in your life. =D

A life changing listen

What did you love best about A Return to Love?

Simpleness of the story meant I could relate to it easily.

What other book might you compare A Return to Love to and why?

not sure right now

What about Marianne Williamson’s performance did you like?

Everything, it is complete.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The book touched a cord in my heart and allowed the light at the end of the dark tunnel to shine a little brighter.

Any additional comments?

A worthwhile listen

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!]

Williamson talks too fast

Interesting to learn from her experience. Her book and message is the same to surrender and let go of resistance and the answers will come to you once you become open and trusting to the world around you. What was and has been disappointing with her delivery in public arena and in narrating her book, SHE TALKS TOO FAST and I don't understand why doesn't someone teach her how to talk in a more slow manner. SHE TALKS TOO FAST, not enough pause in between sentences and that makes the listener more distance to understanding her message because she projects anxiety with her fast paste talking. PLEASE, PLEASE SOMEONE TEACH HER TO TALK IN A MORE SLOW MANNER SO HER MESSAGE IS ALIGNED WITH HER TONE AND ENERGY.

A Return to Love

This is an incredible book with wonderful truth.

I have to be honest though and say that the author reads her book far to fast and find myself almost out of breath listening.

Like eating cheese that has gone off

I am interested in reading the Course in Miracles Book that this is really a long review off. It is well written and told, but I was left feeling short changed as Marianne was too self indulgent. And when people list words to express a point, that loses me. Having said that, I wondered why 2 people had produced books covering their experiences, I guessed because the Course in Miracles might be heavy going, so this book gave me the heads up and I am now ready to go for the main course. I might update this review after I have read the book.

oh the voice

Marianne's voice is just amazing to listen to. With a strong opinion and admirable guidance, she is one who you want to listen to, hear what she has to say and change your thoughts based on her opinion. This book will open your eyes to the Spirit that is all around us and the God that is within us.

Narrator hardly takes a breath!

I enjoyed the book, but I found it hard to follow at times as the narrator talks so fast! I feel like I need to listen again, or buy the physical book to allow me to go at my own pace. There is a lot of interesting content in the book, but I felt the pace spoilt it throughout. Taking a breath between sentences and a momentary pause between chapters would have helped. I felt rushed.

Create content read too fast

Great content as always by Marianne. I find her later audio books were read aloud at a pace where you felt she was talking to you and not just racing through the words she’s reading in the page. Shows how much she’s developed in her audio recordings.
I will re-listen. This content is so powerful that you need to have a slower pace to hear it and integrate just like her more recently read books.

Loved it! Marianne's voice is so calming

I've had a course in miracles sitting on my shelf for over a year and haven't been able to get my head around it. This makes everything so much clearer.
