Elizabeth Gilbert's first appearance on Oprah produced such an overwhelming response from viewers—she's back with even more life-changing lessons to share! Her book Eat, Pray, Love has sparked an inspirational movement and continues to touch lives with talk of Eat, Pray, Love hitting the big screen!

For those who think they can't go on the same journey, Liz says you don't need to jet set around the globe to capture an Eat, Pray, Love experience. Instead, your journey can start with an internal conversation. "I really feel the one non-negotiable thing you need is to find a tiny little corner of your life, of your day, of stillness where you can begin to ask yourself those burning essential questions of your life," she says. " Who am I? Where did I come from? Where am I going? What am I here for?"

Liz is the first to admit that finding time to meditate every day is difficult. "I live in New Jersey, you know? I don't live in an ashram," she says. Liz has made a rule to never feel that she isn't good enough. She says that even women with busy lives and children can begin a spiritual journey with just 10 minutes of silence a day. "You know, my friend Richard from Texas says if you're meditating more than 10 minutes, you're asleep anyway." Liz's biggest piece of advice? Learn to say no. "Be realistic about what you can and cannot do in one day and one life," she says.
