SUPER SOUL SUNDAY: Oprah and Jack Kornfield

Jack Kornfield was raised in a Jewish home with a father he says had an explosive, violent temper. During his childhood, Jack sought refuge in books about the mystical adventures of monks living in Tibet, and he eventually attended Dartmouth College, where he majored in Asian studies. Hear Jack recall how he went from an Ivy League institution to the Mekong River in Thailand, and learn why he calls his degree "only half an education."

 Turn Your Heart Toward 
What is Good

Best-selling author Jack Kornfield says Buddhist teachings begin with the idea that people are born whole and good, and that later, they can choose to turn back to their innate goodness. Watch Jack explain how to return to your original state of goodness, and hear Oprah name the one thing all humans want to experience. Plus, Jack shares the words from Nelson Mandela that still affect him today.
