Harpo Studios, O, The Oprah Magazine, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network and William Morris Endeavor Entertainment (WME) bring “Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend,” a transformational weekend featuring Oprah Winfrey and a team of special guests, sponsored by Olay and Toyota, to The Palace of Auburn Hills Sept. 12-13.

“All of my life I have wanted to lead people to an empathy space. To a gratitude space,” said Oprah Winfrey. “I want us all to fulfill our greatest potential. To find our calling, and summon the courage to live it.”
The tour stop will span two days. On Friday night, Oprah will take the stage, bringing her personal story and insights to life in a one of a kind intimate evening. Then 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, regular O Magazine contributor, 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 Deepak Chopra will take the stage in select cities.
For the weekend experience, Olay and Toyota sponsorships are natural fits. “When women feel their best beautiful, they feel stronger, more confident and empowered,” says Lela Coffey, Marketing Director of North American Beauty Care at Procter and Gamble. “Olay is excited to be partnering with ‘Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend’ to spread the message that women should never have to settle and help them put their best face forward – the best possible version of themselves every day.”
