Marianne Williamson, author of the phenomenal million-copy bestseller A Return to Love, has written an honest and uplifting book, offering seven practical principles for guiding us through life's major changes. Marianne Williamson delves deeply into the rule of change and transition in our lives in this inspirational book, reflecting on the paradoxes that inevitably pervade our experience as she helps us find our way. Williamson examines the paradox of what we gather on the path of life, as our most difficult times sometimes bring about the most wisdom. She then investigates our inherent resistance to change and our recklessness around it. Finally, she focuses at length on the paradox of existence - being firmly rooted yet flexible in our lives. Providing seven practical principles to support us through the transitions and changes we experience in life, Williamson ensures that whatever change you are facing - whether it's a relationship ending, the loss of a loved one or embarking on a new career path - you can learn to stop resisting the change itself and move into the future gracefully. The Gift of Change also examines the roles of openness and letting go, grieving and forgiveness, and love and fear. Marianne Williamson delivers hope and healing as she brings us to a place where we can truly live in the freedom of love.
