Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey has been a regular practitioner of the Transcendental Meditation technique since 2011, and got her entire staff involved.

"Seeking the fullest expression of self. That's the story of my life in six words—my personal definition of what I'm all about, at least for now".

In Oprah Winfrey’s “What I Know for Sure” column in the February 2012 issue of O Magazine, she talks about her experiences with the Transcendental Meditation technique and her visit to Fairfield, Iowa, the home of Maharishi International University.

During her visit to the University, Oprah meditated with more than a 1,000 people. She described her TM experience this way:

“It was a powerfully energizing yet calming experience. I didn’t want it to end.

“When it did, I walked away feeling fuller than when I’d come in. Full of hope, a sense of contentment, and deep joy. Knowing for sure that even in the daily craziness that bombards us from every direction, there is—still—the constancy of stillness.

“Only from that space can you create your best work and your best life.”

Oprah’s visit to Fairfield (which she called “TM Town”) was featured on Oprah’s Next Chapter program (Sunday nights on OWN – the Oprah Winfrey Network).
