Oprah Winfrey’s Lifeclass Hits Toronto

Posted by Nads on April 18, 2012

Last night I was one of the 9,000 individuals who got to see Oprah live at the Convention Centre.  Excited, but more curious really, I have always wanted to see her in person and jumped at the chance to attend the show.  I was skeptical with regards to the price of admission but was pleasantly surprised when they released a number of seats at a very reasonable cost to allow access to almost anyone.  There has been a lot of press with regards to the hefty price tag of attendance, but I paid $47 dollars per ticket and I thought that was a steal.  As an extra bonus, the crew also came back throughout the show to move as many people from the back up to the front as possible.  They set up extra seating and ended up moving about half of the back group.  I thought this was a real nod to the integrity of what they were trying to achieve.

The show also featured a powerhouse of speakers; Tony Robbins, Deepak Chopra, Iyanla Vanzant and Rev T.D. Jakes.   6 hours with this line-up was probably a steal at almost any price, but for me it was a once in a lifetime chance to see these incredibly influential and successful individuals live and hopefully soak up some of their amazing energy and words of wisdom.  I have to say, I have never been one of those ra, ra kind of people and am a little cynical when it comes to a lot of self help and motivational type stuff, but it was really hard to ignore the palpable positivity in the room and not to respond to the incredible presence these individuals possess.  At the most basic level, their messages are positive, hopeful and inspirational, and for someone like me who is always on the hunt for methods to sustain a state of inspiration and motivation, I’m glad I had the chance to go.  I found that after a dose of Tony or Deepak it was really hard not to think about challenging myself to do more, take action and be better.  I was a little disappointed that Oprah herself did not give a talk or interact very  much with the audience outside of the taping of her segment.  As a fan, this was really what I was looking for, that glimpse into an authentic and more personal interaction with her.  All in all though, she is in person what she is on TV; personable, real, charming and focused.  Check out some more takes from the show and information about her Lifeclass tours at www.oprah.com/oprahs-lifeclass/oprahs-lifeclass.html
