Oprah Winfrey, talk show host who loves to meditate
April 18, 2014
“I brought the teachers of the technique to my company. So we started meditating. Seven of us lead 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,” says Oprah Winfrey.
“That way of being ‘still’ with ourselves – coming back to the center – 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 center 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.”
