This week marks an incredibly exciting time for IGNTD — it is our 100th episode! And of course, with it being such a special episode, we have on an incredibly special guest — Marianne Williamson! We are so passionate about the work Marianne does and now that she’s running as a presidential candidate we could not be happier and more optimistic about the future of the world, our children’s lives, and the change that is possible.
If somehow, you don’t already know who Marianne is, we’ll fill you in! Marianne is an internationally-acclaimed lecturer, activist, and author of four #1 New York Times bestselling books. She has been one of America’s most well-known public voices for more than three decades. She has been a popular guest on television programs such as Oprah, Good Morning America, and Bill Maher. Beyond her accolades, Marianne is a voice of inspiration for deeper healing, spiritual guidance, and creating incredible change within yourself and your communities.
We cannot wait to share today’s episode with you all! Please join us to hear Marianne’s presidential platform, how and why she decided to run for president, the importance of “breaking out of our roles” within our communities when it comes to standing up for what we believe in, and of course, her views on bullying — as it is still bullying month!
