*The queen of media, Oprah Winfrey, is embarking on her “The Life You Want” empowerment tour, which kicked off last week in Atlanta.
Her eight-city journey will include some empowerment gurus — including health guru Dr. Deepak Chopra, Iyanla Vanzant of “Fix My Life,” author Mark Nepo, Pastor Rob Bell and “Eat, Pray, Love” author Elizabeth Gilbert.
Each stop will consist of two days. On day one, Oprah will talk about her life and career — advising folks with the lessons she’s learned. The following day her guests will discuss from an array of empowerment areas — forgiveness, mental health, following instincts and spirituality.
Recently, she stopped by Extra to talk about the tour, which has been on her bucket list for a minute.
She told Extra, “when I was a little girl, I had this dream of myself being on a stage like this, speaking to an audience. I didn’t know what I was talking about when I was having the dream, but this has always been something I thought would happen sometime in my life. And now it has.”
She added, “This was a bucket list for me because all those years at the Oprah show… the shows that excited me the most were shows where I was talking to people about things I knew could make a difference in their lives. For me, and the message of my life, is leaving people with something that can help them make their lives better.
