Author and teacher Marianne Williamson has helped people all over the world learn to listen to their hearts. Now she’s making a major shift in her own life to do just that herself: She’s running as an Independent for Congress in Los Angeles, District 33. The race became even more interesting recently when word got out that Henry Waxman, longtime Democratic congressman in the same district, is retiring.
After a campaign event at a friend’s house, WHOA! co-founder Darryle Pollack had a quick, impromptu chat with Marianne in the kitchen – with no handlers, no preparation and no fuss. Marianne explains why she’s decided to step so far out of her comfort zone at this particular point in her life.
