August 5th show features New York Times bestselling author Marianne Williamson
New book Tears to Triumph offers us a powerful way forward through pain, to a deeper awareness of our feelings, our lives, and our true selves
Los Angeles, CA—Sought-after radio host Marla Frees returns to Whitley Strieber’s Dreamland radio show on August 5th after a three year hiatus. Frees will host one show per month, with New York Times bestselling author Marianne Williamson guesting her first show. Frees hosted Dreamland from 2007-2013, interviewing mind/body luminaries such as Dr. Eben Alexander, Dr. Gary Schwartz, and Dr. Brian Weiss, among many others.
Says Whitley Strieber, host and founder of unknowncountry.com: "I would like to welcome one of our favorite guest hosts back to Dreamland after too long an absence. This week Marla Frees returns with a deeply moving and beautiful discussion with legendary author Marianne Williamson about her new book, Tears to Triumph: The Spiritual Journey from Suffering to Enlightenment."
Marianne Williamson is a bestselling author, world-renowned teacher, and one of the most important spiritual voices of our time. In Tears to Triumph, she argues that we—as a culture and as individuals—have learned to avoid facing pain. By doing so, we are neglecting the spiritual work of healing.
Says Williamson: “Instead of allowing ourselves to embrace our hurt, we numb it, medicate it, dismiss it, or otherwise divert our attention so that we never have to face it. In refusing to acknowledge our suffering, we actually prolong it and deny ourselves the opportunity for profound wisdom—ultimately limiting our personal growth and opportunity for enlightenment. Frozen by denial, we are left standing in the breech. Whole industries profit from this immobility, and while they have grown rich, we have become spiritually poorer.”
Listeners are able to access the first half hour of the interview free of charge. The second half hour, which is a more intimate conversation, can be accessed via subscription to unknowncountry.com. For subscription information: https://www.unknowncountry.com/user/register
