Author Mark Nepo Dishes On Spending The Weekend With Oprah On The Life You Want Tour

Oprah's The Life You Want Tour landed in Newark this past weekend, and among the many celebrated speakers was spiritual writer Mark Nepo. He joined HuffPost Live on Monday to talk about the conference and what traveling with Ms. Winfrey entails.

"The Oprah tour is just remarkable," he told host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani, crediting "Oprah's huge heart" for the event's success.

Nepo, the author of "The Book of Awakening," recounted the sight of "thousands" of Oprah fans, all of whom seem to hold an "open space" in their their hearts for the media maven, and how their unified spirit makes one forget they're in a crowded stadium.

"I've been actually surprised at how intimate it feels with that many people," he said. "I think so many people are really hungry for that authentic company."
