Oprah talks about her practice of TM
In this 4-minute section of a fascinating in-depth interview, Oprah Winfrey describes to Dr Mehmet Oz, medical doctor and TV talk-show host, how she
“……brought Transcendental Meditation teachers into Harpo Studios to teach me and my team how to meditate. So we started meditating. Seven of us led to 70, led to 270, led to now everyone in the company meditates. Nine o’clock in the morning, and 4:30 in the afternoon no matter what is going on, we stop and we meditate.
“And that way of being ‘still’ with ourselves—coming back to the centre—and recognizing that something is more important than you, it’s more important than the work you are doing, brings a kind of energy and an intensity of energy, an intention that we have never had before.
“And you can’t imagine what has happened in the company. People who used to have migraines, don’t. People are sleeping better. People have better relationships. People interact with other people better. It’s been fantastic.
“So the one thing I want to continue to do is to centre myself everyday, and make that a practice for myself because I am one thousand percent better when I do that, one thousand percent better when I take myself back to something bigger than myself.”
In a recent issue of her new show Oprah’s Next Chapter, she visits the campus of Maharishi University of Management, in Fairfield, Iowa (she refers to it as TM town) and meditates with the group of several hundred ladies in the Golden Domes there. She describes her experience in an article in the February edition of her O Magazine (unfortunately only in the USA edition, but you can view the article here).
