Oprah Winfrey


Oprah Winfrey has had many careers, from radio newscaster to actress, but she is most famous for her television talk show The Oprah Winfrey Show. Oprah grew up in difficult circumstances; she was raised by a teenage mother in inner city Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Despite this, she provides a wealth of wisdom about meditation and mindfulness. She believes that by finding a connection to something greater to ourselves through meditation, we tune into what our purpose might be and reach it with more clarity and ease. “At this particular time in my life, I recognize that everything is about moving closer to that which is God,” she says. “I’m not talking about religion…without understanding the fullness from which we come, we can’t really fulfill our supreme moment of destiny.”

Whether or not you have found your purpose, meditation can bring your life into focus and keep you in touch with what matters to you. Listen to more of Oprah’s thoughts here:
