Creating a Politics of Love, Marianne Williamson’s SISTER GIANT 2017 Featuring Keynote by Senator Bernie Sanders
SISTER GIANT 2017
Featuring Keynote by Senator Bernie Sanders. February 2-4, 2017
On February 2-4, 2017, Marianne is partnering with Derrick Harkins, Vice President of Union Theological Seminary, to host the next SISTER GIANT conference — live in Washington DC or via Livestream — which will explore the intersection of spirituality and politics. Join Marianne, Senator Bernie Sanders, and a host of experts speaking on the most critical spiritual and political issues of our day.
WHAT IS SISTER GIANT?
In the words of Mahatma Gandhi, “Politics should be sacred.” Sacred doesn’t necessarily mean religious – it means stemming from the deepest part of ourselves.
The search for authenticity, for our deep humanity, should not stop at the door to politics. If anything, it should extend deeply into realms that affect so powerfully the existence of earth’s billions of inhabitants. From how we treat the environment to how we treat each other, our political choices are significant indicators of our moral values and spiritual convictions.
The times in which we live call for a critical re-evaluation of our relationship to life around us – to our fellow citizens, to our country and to our world. Yet in order to transform our current challenges, we must address them from a holistic perspective – recognizing not only the external but also the internal dimensions of both our problems and their solutions.
SISTER GIANT is dedicated to forging a deeper conversation about what is happening in America today – and what we can do to change it. Join us at this time of national tumult that together we might rethink our country.
In February 2010, Marianne Williamson held a seminar called SISTER GIANT: Rousing the Sleeping Giant of American Womanhood.During that weekend, five hundred women gathered to watch three films, then learn from scholarly experts about the subjects they covered…the rest is history…learn more HERE

One United Roar for Lions and Nature is a call to arms. It invites all of humanity to stand up, stand together and stand strong in support of Lions – and all of nature. After all, who will speak for the lions if not us? Why lions? Because lions are the capstone animal in their ecosystem, and science tells us that if the Capstone animal disappears, the entire ecology will collapse. This is the ecology that supports all of humanity and all of life. White Lions, specifically, are the apex, and there are fewer than a dozen of them living in their endemic habitat. We are that close to the precipice. How to turn back? By following the keys provided by the lions themselves, the 12 Laws of LionHearted Leadership which Linda Tucker unpacks in her shows with humour, joy and a deep celebration of Sacred Warriorship and the Divinity of Life.
After being rescued by a Tsonga medicine woman from a life-threatening encounter with a pride of lions in 1991, Linda Tucker relinquished an international fashion and marketing career to become a conservationist. Since then, she has dedicated her life to the urgent protection of the critically endangered White Lions, regarded as sacred icons by African elders: “The King of Kings”.
In 2002, Linda founded the Global White Lion Protection Trust to ensure the survival of the White Lions as a living heritage. She successfully secured vast protected heritage lands for them in the unique ecosystem which is their endemic habitat – the United Nations-designated Kruger to Canyons Biosphere.
For twenty years, Linda has promoted a LionHearted Leadership™ model for sustainable living with mutual benefits for Lions, Land and People.
Her initiatives include the StarLion Program, a global eco-educational program for emerging talent in youth leadership, and the White Lion Leadership Academy founded in 2012 and based on heart-centred knowledge which enables adult leaders from all walks of life to become powerful agents of change.
2016 sees the emergence of the Linda Tucker Foundation, which continues to teach LionHearted Leadership™ strategies in ecosystems and human systems for protecting our earth.
Campaigns are ongoing for the protection of lions from the notorious “Blood Lions” industry, which is speed-breeding lions in cages to be killed (a gross malpractice known as “Canned Lion Hunting”). She is regularly invited as special guest speaker at international congresses, public events, and TV interviews; she has presented at the South African Parliament and British Parliament, and has been honored with the Woman of Impact Award and Citation by the Governor of Maryland, USA.
Educated in Cambridge University (UK) and initiated by indigenous African lion shamans, Linda holds the honorary shamanic title in the great African tradition: Keeper of the White Lions. Her life has been well documented by, amongst others, Forbes Magazine 2013 , National Geographic, Reuters, CBS, Animal Planet and NHK Japan – and is currently the subject of a full length Hollywood movie script.
Linda Tucker lives in the heart of the White Lion Protected Area with her partner, lion ecologist Jason A. Turner, their dedicated team, and the magnificent prides they have rescued and successfully rewilded in a ground-breaking scientific reintroduction project.
Linda Tucker is author of Mystery of the White Lions (2001), Saving the White Lions (2013) and 12 Laws of LionHearted Leadership™ (2016).
