The internationally recognized teacher, speaker, and New York Times best-selling author of A Return to Love argues that our desire to avoid pain is actually detrimental to our lives, disconnecting us from our deepest emotions and preventing true healing and spiritual transcendence.
Marianne Williamson is a best-selling author, a 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.
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 breach. Whole industries profit from this immobility, and while they have grown rich, we have become spiritually poorer.
As Marianne makes clear, true healing and transcendence can come only when we finally face our pain and wrestle with what it has to teach us. Written with warm compassion and profound wisdom, Tears to Triumph offers us a powerful way forward through the pain, to a deeper awareness of our feelings, our lives, and our true selves.

I listened again and again
This is a book I would recommend to anyone who would like to make a change in their lives.
Marianne explains her concepts very clearly and she is easy to listen to. It's like having a wonderful friend who is very wise and gives you the best (sometimes hard to hear) advice. You know that this friend has your best interest at heart and wants only what is the highest experience for your soul's growth.
There were chapters of this book that I listened to multiple times. The chapter on relationships was especially informative, inspiring and I wanted to really take in the information. It is such a fascinating part of life.
I know I will go back and listen again.
I thoroughly enjoyed this and will listen again.
