Oprah joins mass meditation

2011-10-23 18:36

Fairfield - Oprah Winfrey meditated with more than 400 women in the US state of Iowa and also talked to students about her spiritual journey.

Suzanne Stryker says she was among the women participating in the transcendental meditation on Wednesday at the Maharishi School in Fairfield.

She says no one in the meditation group knew the TV personality was going to be there until Winfrey, who heads the OWN television network, arrived with a film crew.

The private Maharishi School specialises in "consciousness-based education" for kindergarten through 12th grade.

Director Richard Beall says on the school's website that Winfrey spoke with students about her spiritual journey. He says the school will host a discussion on Monday night about the visit.

A message left on  Saturday for Winfrey's production company wasn't immediately returned to The Associated Press.

    So she should now admit that she is 'new age'and stop trying to 'appear' to be 'all things to all people'.

    Mass Meditate better than a mass debate I guess. She is phony and the world just laps it up. Sies.

    She is the high priestess of the "new Age" movement- dangerous and very false. What makes Oprah dangerous, is the influence she has over people, including here in SA and how she uses her money to advance her agenda.

    there is only one way to be saved - that is through Jesus Christ - he is truth and he Died and rose again so that every soul can be saved for those who believe in him and his grace. All other ways are satanic and not from God. Jesus is coming soon and every knee will bow

    Meditation isn't "New Age" or Satanic and Oprah is only dangerous if you're an ignorant fool.

    Let us not forget some of the primary teachings of the Bible! With all thy getting, get understanding. Judge not less ye be judged...Karma...as you sow so shall you reap. Love one another as I have loved you. Another words, Ignorance, Bigotry, and hatred should NOT be family values! The kingdom of God is within you. FIRST seek the kingdom of God and all the rest will be added unto you. I'm so sure you will figure it out. With sincere love and hope, Dennis
