“All of my life I have wanted to lead people to an empathy space. To a gratitude space,” said Oprah Winfrey. “I want us all to fulfill our greatest potential. To find our calling, and summon the courage to live it.”
Each tour stop will span two days. On Friday nights, Oprah will take the stage, bringing her personal story and insights to life in a one of a kind intimate evening.

Additionally, world-renowned author and pioneer in mind-body medicine Deepak Chopra will take the stage in select cities.
