FAIRFIELD, Iowa – Oprah Winfrey meditated with some 480 women and talked to students during a brief stop in Fairfield.
Suzanne Stryker, of Fairfield, was among the women participating in the transcendental meditation Wednesday at the Maharishi School. She said no one in the meditation group knew Winfrey was going to be there until she arrived with a film crew.
The private Maharishi School specializes in “consciousness-based education” for kindergarten through 12th grade.
Director Richard Beall said on school’s website that Winfrey spoke with students about her spiritual journey. He said the school will host a discussion Monday night about the visit.
Winfrey also visited a pizza shop, a cafe and a campus of Vedic scholars.A message left Saturday for Winfrey’s production company wasn’t immediately returned. (source)
