Last summer at ESSENCE Festival, Oprah Winfrey shared early in her career she visited a mentor’s house and noticed she had trees in her yard – six to be exact. Winfrey surmised that rich people own trees and, one day, she would own six herself. At her Montecito, CA estate of 65 acres, Winfrey has more than 3,600 trees.

Those gorgeous trees are one of the first things guests noticed when they drive through her estate aptly called The Promised Land. On Sunday, Winfrey invited some of her famous friends and spiritual inspirations for a Super Soul Sunday Gospel Brunch to celebrate the release of her new book The Wisdom of Sundays: Life-Changing Insights from Super Soul Conversations —and the success of her Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations podcast.
