Jean Houston is a thought leader, an anthropologist, a wisdom teacher -- and the interviewee that caused Oprah to do something she's never done after an interview. "When I finished the interview, I asked for a transcript so I could actually process what had been said because the information and the ahas were coming so fast I couldn't even process it," Oprah says. "This is the first time this has ever happened to me."
Oprah says people have been telling her for years that she just had to meet Jean, and it finally happened for "Super Soul Sunday." Their interview airs Sunday, Nov. 25 on OWN at 11 a.m. ET. "[Jean Houston] is formidable in her knowledge of the spiritual realm and spiritual experience here on earth," Oprah says.
One of the aha moments that moved Oprah most was Jean's belief that everyone has a greater story in life. "It does take a level of encouragement and development," Jean says. "It's a question of people getting together and teaching learning communities... growing in body, mind and spirit together, beginning to really expand their inner capacities, expand their sense of radical empathy to others."
