Encore: Marianne Williamson's New Release: Tears To Triumph

From Tragedy to Triumph herself, bestselling author, speaker and host of the "You Are Not Alone" radio show April Joy Ford, invites Marianne Williamson with her new release, "Tears To Triumph". In her new book, renowned spiritual teacher and bestselling author Marianne Williamson offers an impassioned spiritual perspective on the epidemic of depression sweeping our society, and joins a growing chorus of voices addressing the overmedication of America. Williamson challenges the broad appropriation of deep sadness as a medical issue, claiming there is a “spectrum of normal human suffering” that calls for spiritual, not medical, intervention. Tears To Triumph is a clarion call not only to the reader, but also to society to heed the deeper message of our suffering and the suffering of others. Could a dose of love and forgiveness really be a radical solution to the epidemic of depression?
