Oprah Winfrey: BROKEN OPEN
Job loss, addiction, a break up, the death of a loved one, illness… these are the kinds of struggles that have the potential to break us wide open. Oprah says that before you ask the question Why me, Why me? Realize that nothing is happening out of order. Your life is always speaking to you. When that wake-up call comes, understand that it’s your life trying to push you in another direction… onto the next leg of your journey. Don’t resist. Instead let the truth break you open. No experience is ever wasted. In this episode of Super Soul, Oprah sits down with acclaimed spiritual teachers: Elizabeth Lesser, Gabrielle Bernstein, Father Richard Rohr, Ali McGraw, Sarah Ban Breathnach, Caroline Myss, Lewellyn Vaughn Lee, Reverend Michael Beckwith, Elizabeth Gilbert, Glennon Doyle, Michael Singer, Iyanla Vanzant, Dr. Shefali Tsabary, Pema Chödrön, Cheryl Strayed, Deepak Chopra and Adyashanti to reveal the true meaning of what it means to be broken open and what to do when those life-challenges arise.

Oprah Winfrey: FORGIVENESS
Oprah Winfrey says that for many people searching for peace and purpose, one of the biggest obstacles can be the struggle to forgive. Especially if one has suffered trauma, abuse or personal betrayals, forgiveness can seem like an insurmountable hurdle. The journey to releasing resentments and vengeful thoughts, and the letting go of all hope for a better past, are probably some of the biggest spiritual challenges any of us will ever face. Oprah says if we accept these challenges, the rewards are great because on the other side of forgiveness is freedom. In this episode of Super Soul, Oprah sits down with such luminaries as Dr. Maya Angelou, Karen Armstrong, Marianne Williamson, Adyashanti, Mark Nepo, Wayne Dyer, Gabrielle Bernstein, Don Miguel Ruiz, Tracey Jackson, Shaka Senghor, Bryan Stevenson and Michael Singer to discover what it means to truly forgive and the steps we all can take to find personal freedom. These interviews with talented writers, speakers and thought leaders are excerpted from her Emmy Award-winning show Super Soul Sunday. You can also find this compilation and other insightful conversations, in Oprah’s New York Times best-selling book The Wisdom of Sundays.

Oprah Winfrey: EGO
Oprah Winfrey says that she didn’t understand the true meaning of ego until she met Eckhart Tolle. He opened her eyes to how an ego-based mind can sabotage everything. Initially she thought ego meant arrogance or superiority. But now she sees it's the part of us that identifies as our personality, our accomplishments, our talents, essentially the false self. The key to continued spiritual growth is to understand the ego’s disruptive role in our lives. In this SuperSoul Conversation Oprah talks with Eckhart Tolle, Wayne Dyer, Father Richard Rohr, Brene Brown, Dr. Shefali Tsabary, Jack Canfield, Jeff Weiner, Phil Jackson, Pema Chodron about the many challenges the ego presents and what we can do to stay on track. These talented writers, speakers and thought leaders have been featured on her Emmy Award-winning show Super Soul Sunday. You can also find this compilation and other insightful conversations in her New York Times best-selling book The Wisdom of Sundays.
