    Jamie Kern Lima

    On this Super Soul, Oprah and New York Times Best-Selling author Jamie Kern Lima, talk about her new book, Worthy: How to Believe You Are and Transform Your Life. Jamie Kern Lima, who has been on Forbes’ list of America’s wealthiest self-made women for six years, started “IT Cosmetics” in her living room with her husband, Paulo, and eventually sold it to L’Oreal for $1.2 Billion. Jamie, who once waited tables and bagged groceries to make ends meet, tells Oprah how she achieved her extraordinary success in a world full of people telling her “No!”: by listening to her truth and reminding herself she’s WORTHY! She also explains why she wrote this book for every person “who has ever doubted their worthiness and is tired of what their self-doubt has cost them in life.” Oprah and Jamie Kern Lima talk about everything from embracing rejection, how to deal with weight shaming and why it’s important to understand the difference between self-confidence and self-worth. Jamie ends the episode with a powerful poem she wrote called, “You’re Not Crazy, You’re Just First.”

    Super Soul Special: Oprah Winfrey: EGO

    Super Soul Special: Oprah Winfrey: EGO

    Original Air Date: January 6, 2021

    Oprah Winfrey says that she didn’t understand the true meaning of ego until she met Eckhart Tolle. He opened her eyes to how an ego-based mind can sabotage everything. Initially she thought ego meant arrogance or superiority. But now she sees it's the part of us that identifies as our personality, our accomplishments, our talents, essentially the false self. The key to continued spiritual growth is to understand the ego’s disruptive role in our lives. In this Super Soul podcast Oprah talks with Eckhart Tolle, Wayne Dyer, Father Richard Rohr, Brené Brown, Dr. Shefali, Jack Canfield, Jeff Weiner, Phil Jackson, Pema Chödrön about the many challenges the ego presents and what we can do to stay on track. These talented writers, speakers and thought leaders have been featured on her Emmy Award-winning show Super Soul Sunday. You can also find this compilation and other insightful conversations in her New York Times best-selling book The Wisdom of Sundays.

    Super Soul Special: Whispers

    Super Soul Special: Whispers

    Original Air Date: April 7, 2021
    Your life is always speaking to you in whispers, guiding you to your next right step. In many situations, the whisper is also the first warning. It’s a quiet nudge from deep within saying, Hmmm, something feels off. A small voice that tells you, “This is no longer your place of belonging.” It’s the pit in your stomach, or the pause before you speak. It’s the shiver, the goosebumps that raise the hairs on the back of your neck. Whatever form the whisper takes, it’s not a coincidence. Your life is trying to tell you something. Heeding these signs can open the doors to your personal evolution, pushing you toward your life’s purpose. Ignoring them or sleepwalking through your life, is an invitation to chaos. In this Super Soul podcast, Oprah sits down with such gifted writers and thought leaders as Dani Shapiro, Caroline Myss, Adyashanti, Shauna Niequist, Jon Kabat Zinn, Cheryl Strayed, Pema Chödrön, Amy Purdy, John Lewis, Wes Moore, Kerry Washington and Thomas Moore. Interviews with these talented writers, speakers and thought leaders are excerpted from Oprah’s Emmy Award-winning show Super Soul Sunday. You can also find this compilation and other insightful conversations, in Oprah’s best-selling book, The Path Made Clear.

Great content

Truly love the content, thank you! But on some episodes, the transition to commercials is abrupt. Having a gentle transition or even consider front loading the commercials is preferred. Thank you
