Crisis as Catharsis

Add to favorites

By Elizabeth Lesser and Iyanla Vanzant

Sometimes it seems as if COVID-19 is an uninvited guest who has come into our midst with fierce messages about what’s not working in our culture, our communities, and even our personal lives. But, if we listen and learn, this painful crisis might also be carrying some valuable lessons.
In this free online gathering, Iyanla Vanzant, one of the country’s most dynamic, influential, and socially engaged spiritual leaders, dives deep in conversation with Omega cofounder Elizabeth Lesser, about how to use crisis as catharsis. Skip ahead to 27:48 to join Iyanla for a 5-minute guided meditation. 
Executive producer and host of the breakout television hit Iyanla: Fix My Life on OWN, Iyanla helps people pull back the curtain on what is broken in their lives as the first step in fixing them. She brings her no-nonsense approach—powerful, loving, humorous, and real—into this conversation as she and Elizabeth talk about “fixing” our lives—personally and collectively. 
Iyanla also leads a prayer and meditation, followed by a question-and-answer session with the Omega community.
