Oprah is joined by bestselling author Elizabeth Gilbert whose 2006 memoir “Eat, Pray, Love” sparked a global conversation about what it means to find your calling and fulfill your life’s purpose. In the conversation, Elizabeth opens up to Oprah about the lessons she learned from her yearlong quest around the world and how the uncertainty of transformation in our lives is never easy or painless, but essential to experience. Elizabeth talks about the stages of the “hero’s journey” and that no obstacle is too great to keep anyone from fulfilling their destiny, as this great and epic personal quest has been calling us all for centuries. Elizabeth is a featured speaker/spiritual trailblazer on “Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend” tour travelling throughout the U.S. this fall, and her latest novel, “The Signature of All Things,” was named one of the best books of 2013 by The New York Times.
