OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network presents a new episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter” featuring America’s Most Unusual Town this Sunday, March 25 (9-10 p.m. ET/PT) followed by “Oprah’s Master Class” with Jon Bon Jovi (10-11 p.m. ET/PT).

 

On “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” Oprah Winfrey travels to Fairfield, Iowa -- one of the safest, greenest and most unusual communities in America -- to visit a school where daily Transcendental Meditation (TM) is mandatory. Winfrey then visits the neighboring community of Maharishi Vedic City, where non-organic food is banned and all houses face East -- adhering to anancient Indian style that brings peace and harmony. Also, for the first time, cameras are allowed inside a top-secret, 80-acre compound where 800 Indian men live spending eight hours a day meditating and chanting. Later, Winfrey joins the community at their domes for evening meditation.

“Oprah’s Master Class” features rock legend Jon Bon Jovi as he opens up about his life as one of rock music’s megastars. Having sold over 125 million records with his band Bon Jovi over their 29-year career and counting, Bon Jovi takes us inside the band’s meteoric rise to fame and reveals what he learned when that fame threatened to tear the band apart. He also shares the lessons he’s learned throughout his life -- from never taking “no” for an answer to honoring your commitments, finding your own path in life and believing in the value of community. And he’s still using those lessons to help charities make a difference in the world.
