  • Marianne Williamson: Life Lessons for a Better You and A Better World

    10 OCT. 2023 · Welcome to another empowering episode of The Women of Austin Podcast! In this episode, we are thrilled to have Marianne Williamson, Democratic Presidential Candidate, Texas native, best-selling author, and activist, as our special guest. The episode kicks off with Marianne taking us through her time in Texas, which included a brief six-month stay in Austin. She opens up and gets vulnerable, sharing a personal story about a moment in her life when she realized the importance of being there for a sick loved one, inspired by Bonnie Raitt's actions. She reflects on the idea that as we age, we often carry regrets and the feeling of missed opportunities, but she reminds us that the only real failure is when we don't learn and grow from those experiences. Marianne emphasizes how life's lessons can make us more compassionate and aware of the fragility of others. Our host, Mindy Hofman, delves into Marianne's book, "A Woman’s Worth," and the two discuss the changing landscape of emotional expression for women. They explore the importance of embracing and owning our sadness and grief while recognizing the need to balance it with resilience and strength. They stress the significance of extending empathy beyond our own pain and actively supporting others in their journey. Marianne urges us to consider the suffering of women under oppressive regimes like the Taliban, reminding us that our struggles are relative and that it's vital to be present for one another. She shares a valuable lesson from her high school drama teacher, June Smith, who asked her, "Do you ever think of anyone but yourself?" – a message that deeply resonated with her at the time. The conversation takes a profound turn as Marianne and Mindy discuss the necessity of allowing our hearts to break and being part of a global movement for change. Marianne highlights the idea that living a meaningful life involves looking beyond our own circumstances and asking how we can be of service to others. They also explore the principles of Recovery and AA (Alcoholics Anonymous), demonstrating how these principles can be universally applied, providing a transformative roadmap for personal growth and societal change. In a powerful moment, Marianne reminds us that the most valuable advice she's ever received is to "get over yourself, this is not about you." She underscores that, while self-love is important, it's the love we show to others that truly elevates us spiritually. Don't miss part two of this inspiring conversation with Marianne Williamson, set to be released on October 24th!

Your journey to empowerment and connection starts right here. About Dr. Aisha White: Dr. Aisha White is a board-certified plastic surgeon living in Austin, Texas, who has extensive training and experience in plastic surgery. She was drawn to a career in plastic surgery because she saw firsthand how it could transform not only people’s bodies but also their self-esteem. She has always had a strong interest in women’s health and spends much of her time in and out of her medical practice engaged in activities that empower women and young girls.
