Life therapist Iyanla Vanzant traveled to Ferguson, MO. to film an episode of her popular OWN Network television series “Iyanla: Fix My Life”.

Iyanla will use her life experiences to help the residents of Ferguson cope after ten (10) nights of civil unrest since an unarmed teenager Michael Brown was gunned down execution-style by a Ferguson police officer.

“My heart hurts for the family of Michael Brown and the citizens of Ferguson,” said Iyanla. “In the wake of this tragic death, it is my responsibility as a mother, grandmother and teacher to show my support and to offer the community a chance to share its story with the nation. In addition, I hope to provide a set of tools to begin the healing process while also promoting peaceful change.”

Iyanla called on famous rappers such as; Jay Z, Naz and Little Wayne to stand with her in Missouri in support of the civil unrest in the city.

The press realease:

Los Angeles – Following the shooting death of Michael Brown and subsequent unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, ordained minister and nationally recognized spiritual life coach Iyanla Vanzant has traveled to the area to listen to the people who have been adversely affected and to join the community in finding a path from violence into healing.

Breaking from the traditional “Iyanla: Fix My Life” series format, Iyanla is taking her show to the streets of Ferguson for an upcoming special episode of “Iyanla: Fix My Life” to air on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. The air date will be announced in the coming week.

The cornerstone of Iyanla’s work on her television show and through her ministry has focused on resolving conflict and guiding people in crisis to move past their pain.

        I think Iyanla has been very successful at fixing “regular” folks. She hosts seminars/life coaching sessions/been on Oprah 😆 It’s the celebrity folk that she has a problem with in my opin because they think they are above correction and real honest talk.

        You think its crass? When that’s her business? I happen to think she is genuine..in the same vein that an Oprah would be. Anything she does will be self-serving, yes, but if it helps…why not?
