Oprah’s “The Life You Want Weekend” Comes to San Jose


Oprah Winfrey will close out her national eight-city arena tour, “The Life You Want Weekend,” Nov. 14-15 in San Jose with a transformational weekend and a team of handpicked inspirational leaders, produced by Harpo Studios, O, The Oprah Magazine, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network and WME Live.

The tour is presented by Toyota and Olay and kicked off in Atlanta in September, and stopped in Auburn Hills, MI; Washington D.C.; Newark, NJ; Houston, TX; Miami, FL; and Seattle, WA.


The weekend event will start Friday at the SAP Center, 525 W Santa Clara St. in San Jose, with a one-of-a-kind intimate evening as Oprah brings her personal story to life on stage.


On Saturday, Oprah will lead a day-long gathering of thousands with handpicked thought leaders and pop culture icons including Iyanla Vanzant, star of OWN’s hit series “Iyanla Fix My Life,” best-selling author and spiritual life coach; best-selling author of Eat Pray Love, Elizabeth Gilbert; and one of Time 100’s Most Influential people, Pastor Rob Bell. Additionally, world-renowned author and pioneer in mind-body medicine Dr. Deepak Chopra will take the stage.


“It has been a dream of mine forever to create an event where you can wake up to all of your potential and your possibilities,” said Oprah in a statement.


Also on Saturday, paralympian and “Dancing With the Stars” finalist Amy Purdy will join Oprah on stage for Toyota’s “Standing O-Vation,” which will recognize a local individual that has had an impact in their community. While reflecting the kind of stories that define the brand, Toyota’s “Standing O-Vation” is an opportunity to celebrate remarkable women who are not only making the world a better place, but also motivating others to spark their own journey of personal change.


Guests will have the chance to interact with celebrities throughout the weekend and embark on a journey of inspiration and empowerment.


Throughout the weekend, guests can also experience O Town, a pop-up town square and hub of music, activity, food and celebration. There will be entertainment, pampering at lounges featuring indulgent massages, makeovers and more.


Sponsors of O Town include Olay, Toyota, IKEA, Wells Fargo, CoverGirl, Pantene, Tide, Bounty, Crest, Beats by Dr. Dre, and Lisette.
