Last night, I had the opportunity to attend Oprah’s Lifeclass in Toronto (big thanks to lifemadedelicious.ca and momcentralcanada.com) at the Toronto Metro Convention Centre.
8,500 people (pretty much all female) lined up down the road, around the block, around another block and another (seriously longest line evah!) for hours and hours to see Oprah. The line up…not so enjoyable.
The Lifeclass speaker lineup – that’s another thing…Tony Robbins, Deepak Chopra (I met him, in person, years ago – very nice man), Bishop T.D. Jakes and Iyanla Vanzant. The theme for the pre-show seemed to be “Be pregnant with purpose“.
The evening show was live streamed on the Oprah Winfrey Networksite as well as her televised Lifeclass.
The theme was “forgiveness” – acknowledging, asking, finding and letting go. Not just from others but from ourselves. My take away was that we all struggle to forgive which pulls us into the past rather than allowing us the freedom to move forward.
