Marianne Williamson leads meditation session on campaign trail


Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson leads a mediation in Manchester, NH on Monday September 9, 2019

It’s something you normally don’t see on the presidential campaign trail.

Democratic White House contender and best-selling spiritual author Marianne Williamson led a meditation on Monday during a campaign swing in New Hampshire, the state that holds the first primary in the race for the White House.


“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,” Williamson told Fox News.


“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 emphasized. “The whole world of spirituality, meditation, yoga, this is very much mainstream American culture today.”


Williamson was invited to the meditation by Kriss Blevens, a well-known New Hampshire-based makeup artist who’s been making up presidential candidates for three decades.


Blevens, who made up Williamson earlier this year, invited the candidate to lead a meditation on peace to help launch what she calls "Core Beauty," a new “sacred space” for mediation inside her existing Kriss Cosmetics studio in Manchester, New Hampshire’s largest city.


Blevens – who’s an independent voter – noted that she remains neutral in the primary but that she agreed with Williamson on many issues.
