Oprah talks about the power of ego and why she now regrets pulling out the infamous "wagon of fat" on The Oprah Winfrey Show—the most-watched Oprah episode in history. Oprah shares the ways in which it affected how others viewed her, as well as her own self-image. She explains what it felt like to finally make the connection, years later, to what was really driving her decision to share her weight struggles with the world. Oprah also offers advice for knowing when your ego is getting the best of you.
In a live appearance at UCLA’s Royce Hall, Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter India.Arie reveals the five most important lessons she learned after she hit rock bottom. India.Arie uses what she calls "songversation" to beautifully describe her journey from breakdown to breakthrough. "Songversation is not a concert," she explains. "It's not a lecture. It's not a performance, even. Songversation is a practice that is part meditation, part prayer, part fellowship and part action." At the height of her fame, India.Arie says she snapped under the unrelenting pressure of the music business. At age 35, she made the bold decision to take a hiatus, rethink her life and start over.
Pastor John Gray: The Bridge

Pastor John Gray: The Bridge

2019-07-1500:25:3620

In a live appearance at UCLA’s Royce Hall, Pastor John Gray discusses the Bridge, a figurative place where people can “bridge” the divide that he says seems to be evident everywhere you look these days. With his unique preaching blend of heart and humor, Pastor Gray has everyone LOLing as he explains why “meeting in the middle” is the key to healing the country. He also describes how his grandmother inspired him to build bridges with people who don’t look like him. Pastor Gray currently stars in OWN’s The Book of John Gray, in which he gives viewers intimate access to his church and home life.
In a live appearance at UCLA’s Royce Hall, New York Times best-selling author, wellness activist and cancer survivor Kris Carr teaches us how she let go of old habits in order to embrace her new crazy, sexy life. At age 31, Kris was diagnosed with an incurable cancer. She fought back, embracing a healthy lifestyle and launching a career as a wellness activist. More than a decade later, she is still thriving with cancer, and her healing journey has inspired many. Yet, Kris confesses in her SuperSoul Session, as the 10th anniversary of her diagnosis approached, she desperately wanted to be cured. "Underneath it all, I felt broken," she says. That's when Kris had an epiphany: She had to shift her thinking and learn to truly love herself—cancer and all. Kris also shares the three crucial things she has learned about self-acceptance.
In a live appearance at UCLA’s Royce Hall, New York Times best-selling author Cheryl Strayed explains why you shouldn't let your dreams get in the way of achieving your goals. Cheryl says at the age of 33, she rented a cottage in the town of Sheffield, Massachusetts, hoping to finish writing her first book. It had been her lifelong desire to write the great American novel, but now that she was so close, she found herself procrastinating and watching TV instead. She says she started to feel like a failure. "I had my dream in my grasp, and I was too weak to hold it," she says. But Cheryl went on to great acclaim as an author, writing best-selling books like “Wild,” “Tiny Beautiful Things” and “Brave Enough.” In this refreshingly honest SuperSoul Session, Cheryl explains why embracing humility is just as important as striving for greatness.
In a live appearance at UCLA’s Royce Hall, author, mentor and criminal justice activist Shaka Senghor uses his powerful story to share the surprising universal life lessons he learned in prison. At the age of 19, Shaka was sent to prison for second-degree murder. After being incarcerated for nearly two decades, he walked out a changed man in 2010. Shaka also describes the moment in prison when he realized that compassion was the key to his spiritual transformation.
In a live appearance at UCLA’s Royce Hall, New York Times best-selling author and spiritual thought leader Eckhart Tolle explains the awakening of consciousness by taking on one of Oprah's signature questions: What do you know for sure? "I know for sure that I'm sitting on a chair," Eckhart says. "That's the most surface level of things. I know for sure that this is a table." His answer is simple enough, but Eckhart delves further. Even these seemingly simple truths are not concrete, he says. Eckhart goes so far as to say that we can't know for sure that life is not a dream, a question that has been posed by many philosophers. Eckhart explains the importance of becoming more present in our daily lives and why the ability to become still is essential.
In a live appearance at UCLA’s Royce Hall, Deepak Chopra explains why a belief is simply a "thought that is true for you." He says the world that we create for ourselves is based on these thoughts, and thus beliefs shape our reality. Deepak goes on to discuss how, as babies, we are filled with curiosity, wonder and bliss. But when we start to be conditioned by the world around us, we begin to build a separate self—one that can fill us with anxiety, pressure and fear. Deepak shares why this “separate self” is not who we really are. He also discusses what it's like to become present and aware through meditation, and why this awareness is important to our well-being.

Dr. Edith Eva Eger: The Choice

2019-06-2400:42:1761

Holocaust survivor, psychologist and author Dr. Edith Eva Eger discusses her international bestselling book, “The Choice: Embrace the Possible.” In a gripping discussion, Dr. Eger shares how her traumatic experiences at the Auschwitz Birkenau concentration camp shaped her life, and talks about her philosophies and her work as a clinical psychologist. At 91, she reminds us what courage looks like in the worst of times. Dr. Eger helps us to understand that our circumstances don’t define what makes us free and that being free is a choice we must make every day. Dr. Eger shares her healing process and explains how serving others in her work as a psychologist helped her to formulate a healthy relationship with her own trauma. She openly shares her grief and resilience in hopes that others begin to embrace what is possible for their own lives.
This special podcast episode features the first-ever conversation between Oprah and the five exonerated men who were once known as The Central Park Five. Their story is dramatically told in the Netflix series, “When They See Us,” a historical account of the five teenagers wrongfully convicted of sexual assault in Central Park in 1989. The four-part Netflix series focuses on the young men—Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise—who were sentenced between five and 15 years in prison and juvenile detention centers. In 2002, all five men were exonerated of their crimes after DNA evidence and a confession from the lone attacker, Matias Reyes, proved their innocence.

I do believe it is hard for a parent to see or recognize what a child wants or makes them happy as being relevant to their journey in life. We only believe our desires for their future are best suited and in their best interest. We refuse to ask them what dreams they have for the present moment or the future. The parent and child are both evolving and changing through Life, nothing is fluid if you are truly searching out your role and place in this world. We all need room for growth.🙏

Great information! I totally agree and innerstood her. I think if we can start early getting more self aware with our Soul! Life could be a little more straightforward. I went thru an awaken as well and even to this day I keep myself in time out. Clearing your mind is needed.
