- Spiritual author Marianne Williamson is changing the future of American politics by bringing spirituality, meditation and yoga to the front stage.

- While Williamson is advocating for yoga and mindfulness, at the same time the American government is suing schools for teaching kids about mindfulness.
Bestselling spiritual author Marianne Williamson is not your typical American politician. She is a lifelong meditation practitioner and advocate for all things spiritual. Yet she is currently a Democratic White House contender .
Williamson led a meditation session on Monday during a campaign swing in New Hampshire, reports FOX .
Williamson says that it should not be a shock for a politician to lead a meditation session. “It’s unique for a campaign event but it’s not unique for America and I think that’s part of what my campaign is all about,” said Williamson.

Marianne WIlliamson’s presidential campaign targets spiritual America, whom she says has been long overlooked
Williamson states that spiritual Americans have felt disconnected from the political scene because the representatives do not reflect them.
“We’re bringing a lot of people into the system who are very much a part of mainstream America but who have felt disconnected from politics, particularly I think progressive politics,” she said. “The whole world of spirituality, meditation, yoga, this is very much mainstream American culture today.”
The meditation session was done to inspire peace in America and particularly in American politics, and at a time when faith in the American political system is low .
Peace is something that is very close to Marianne Williamson’s heart, as is illustrated by her famous quote: “If we’re peaceful, our life will be peaceful. And so our goal in any situation becomes inner peace“.
It’s almost too good to imagine, but if Marianne Williamson’s presidential campaign ends in success, it just could be the spiritual awakening society is so long overdue.
