Sue Baker's view...

Marianne Williamson has attempted to get to the core of over eating and in 21 lessons undo the damage and get the reader to lose weight in their mind as well as their body. And really, this approach would work with any addictive behaviour so it could easily be used by anyone attempting to deal with problems such as smoking or excessive drinking. This is no diet plan, the aim is to change your behaviour and your relationship with your inner self, follow the book says the author and you don’t need a diet plan, you need only the will to tackle the problem of weight-loss in a new spiritual way.

Synopsis

A Course in Weight Loss : 21 Spiritual Lessons for Surrendering Your Weight Forever by Marianne Williamson

For so many people, whether your addiction is to a substance or merely to a certain way of thinking or acting, a profound humbling occurs when you realise that your problem is bigger than you are. The terror of realising, even dimly, that you have no control over a self-destructive pattern of behaviour - that as much as you would want to, you simply cannot stop - can mark a crucial turning point in your life. At that point, you go in one of two directions: either way, way down, or way, way up...This book is for you if you know in your heart that you are an addict, and that you are powerless before your addictive behaviour. As the title promises, Marianne Williamson looks at weight loss from a spiritual perspective, bringing you 30 lessons that can be done separately or in conjunction with any other serious spiritual path. These 30 lessons are completely separate from anything related to diet or exercise - they will retrain your consciousness in the area of weight in order to break the cycle of over-eating, dieting, and shame that rules so many lives. Finally, Marianne has brought you what you've been waiting for: help to heal your addiction once and for all.

About the Author

Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson is an internationally acclaimed spiritual teacher. Her latest book, The Age of Miracles hit #2 on the New York Times Bestseller list. Among her other 9 published books, four of them -- including A Return to Love - were #1 New York Times Bestsellers. A Return to Love is considered a must-read of The New Spirituality. A paragraph from that book, beginning 'Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure' - often misattributed to Nelson Mandela's Inaugural address - is considered an anthem for a contemporary generation of seekers. Marianne's other books include Everyday Grace, A Woman's Worth, Illuminata, Healing the Soul of America, The Gift of Change and Emma and Mommy Talk to God. Marianne does a daily podcast on Oprah.com called MiracleThought. She also hosts a weekly radio show on Oprah and Friends. She has been a popular guest on television programs such as Oprah, Larry King Live, Good Morning America and Charlie Rose. Marianne is a native of Houston, Texas. In 1989, she founded Project Angel Food, a meals-on-wheels program that serves homebound people with AIDS in the Los Angeles area. Today, Project Angel Food serves over 1,000 people daily. Marianne also co-founded The Peace Alliance, a grass roots campaign supporting legislation to establish a US Department of Peace. In December 2006, a Newsweek magazine poll named Marianne Williamson one of the fifty most influential baby boomers. According to Time magazine, 'Yoga, the Cabala and Marianne Williamson have been taken up by those seeking a relationship with God that is not strictly tethered to Christianity.'
