Season 4 Episode 417
Aired on 05/20/2017 | CC tv-pg
After 19 years of dysfunction and three intense days focused on the healing process, Alicia and her six daughters have reached the end of their work with Iyanla. In order for these women to move forward as individuals, Iyanla gives each of them a brick to represent the weighty burdens carried over all these many years. Now, Iyanla says, it's time to release those burdens into the water nearby and be rid of them for good.

Alicia, Shay, Kisha, Preccious, Bianca, Marcia and Marcale join Iyanla at the shoreline near their house of healing to toss their bricks into the water in a symbolic gesture of their fresh start. Watch as each woman sheds the heaviness that's been weighing her down, and hear Iyanla's advice for how they can continue on the path of healing in the days ahead.
