Marianne Williamson is one of the world’s most widely acclaimed chroniclers of the human spirit. In December 2006, a Newsweek poll named Marianne as one of the fifty most influential baby boomers. In her latest book, The Age of Miracles, she explores different ways to rethink the new midlife. She talks about the Law of Divine Compensation, which is the idea that spirit can more than compensate for any diminishment of material substance—if we allow it to do so. “With age, we are shifting from the outer to the inner, not in order to start our demise, but to reseed and regreen the consciousness of the planet.”
