Oprah’s Lifeclass: the Tour Is in Session

Did you hear that bell? It’s time to sharpen your pencils. Season two of Oprah’s Lifeclass: the Tour is about to begin. Monday, March 25, Ms. Winfrey and inspirational author Iyanla Vanzant will be focusing on the topic “Stopping the Pain.”

Each week, Oprah’s life-changing show will ask you to explore a probing query and even contemplate it with your friends. The season kicks off with the question:

How would you fill in this sentence? The pain I can’t get past is_____.

In addition to watching each episode on TV, fans can go to the Lifeclass website to continue their studies. Included in the “Stopping the Pain” life work exercises are these assignments:

• For each thing you listed, write an "anger rant" that describes how you really, truly feel. Don't hold back. Say whatever you really want to say.

• Now write another list called "I could Y" by substituting "I could" for "X should."  Examples: I could be more considerate of my needs. I could stop bickering mentally with politicians and try making people's lives better.

To get inspired, watch this new promo for the show. 

And don’t forget to check back in with us. We leave Sunday morning for our first behind-the-scenes look in St. Louis, Missouri.

And follow the Lifeclass conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #Lifeclass.
