Your relationship to your body might be an area where your nervous system has lost the memory of its divine intelligence. As you remember your own divine truth, the cells of your body will remember theirs. The goal of this course is to remind your body of its perfection by reminding your mind of its perfection. By resetting one, you reset the other.
Join internationally acclaimed New York Times bestselling author and lecturer Marianne Williamson for her 4-week Online Series called THE DIVINE RELATIONSHIP OF BODY & SOUL. Learn how a spiritual understanding of the body's role in your spiritual journey can realign your relationship with it, freeing you from dysfunctional thoughts and behavior regarding food, body image and physical intimacy.
From wanting food too much to not wanting it enough, from abusing your body to allowing others to abuse it, you can interrupt patterns of fear and self-betrayal that rob you of your joy. In understanding your body's spiritual function, you are lifted above the neuroses that can keep you in pain and conflict.
Compulsion is a place where, in your spiritual forgetfulness, you go temporarily insane - just long enough to reach for the excess food or addictive substance, cut yourself, or choose an unhealthy sexual experience. Lost in this forgetfulness, you become confused in your thinking and are unable to say "No" when something truly harmful to your well-being is posing as a supportive and loving friend. Divine Mind is the counterforce to this temporary insanity; when you are lost in moments of spiritual forgetfulness, it will remind you who you are.

Join Marianne for this phenomenal teaching, and begin a new relationship with yourself, your body and God.
For 90 minutes each week, Marianne will teach a spiritual curriculum that realigns your thoughts about the body with your highest thoughts about yourself. The purpose of this seminar is to rout out the fear that can overwhelm our healthy appetites and self-image, replacing it with divine love of self and others.
Each Class will consist of a Video Lesson by Marianne followed by a Live Online Q & A ~ 90 minutes each week.
If you need to miss a class or simply desire to review the material presented, audio and video recordings of the classes will be available online, and will remain available for three months.
The body has a natural intelligence for creating and maintaining the perfect weight for you as long as the mind is aligned with its own perfection. Your perfect weight is coded into the natural patterns of your true self, as your perfect everything is coded into the patterns of your true self. The real you knows exactly how to inhabit your body in the healthiest, happiest way, and will do so automatically when you reestablish conscious connection with spiritual reality. By getting back to the truth of who you really are, you will get to a place where all your problems with weight have disappeared.

Featured in the Series will be...
Please deliver me to
my own true self.
Please make my body
a perfect container
for who You created me to be,
And teach me how to live within it
in happiness and peace.
This isn't a course in self-discipline, but in many ways it is a course in self-love. You will interrupt old patterns by replacing them with something beautiful and good. For where there is light, darkness cannot be. Where there is a connection to the sacred, compulsion and self-betrayal cannot stand. In the presence of the real you, all that is not you will simply fall away.
"Marianne is a light for the transformation world."

"One of the brightest and most spirited of women alive today, Marianne Williamson charts the course for a new history for women and men together. Sourced in Spirit, she has real genius when it comes to pragmatic applications that move us beyond the outmoded ways of the past. She incites us to new ways of being in her grand oratory, books, lectures and many public appearances. At once both tough and compassionate, she brooks no whiny nay-saying. Her way is to help create opportunities and initiatives that serve both person and planet. Marianne is also a midwife of souls and an entrepreneur of the possible. She walks her talk, lives her vision, and, above all, never, ever bores God!"

Today I walk in gratitude
for the miracles You have worked in me,
for the lighness of my being
and the changes that I feel.
May the chaos of my former self
be only a memory now, dear God.
Thank You, thank You, thank You.
