Mathews-player-wideOn March 19, 2014, at 1 pm Pacific/4 pm Eastern, NY Times Bestselling author and host of the number one reality show on the OWN network, Iyanla: Fix My Life, Iyanla Vanzant will be interviewed on the Authentic Living show.

Iyanla Vanzant is easily one of America’s most profound spiritual leaders, who empowers individuals all across the globe to live into the truest self. Her body of work spans over three decades and includes CDs, television, radio and on stage performances, 15 published books, and 5 New York Times Bestsellers, which have been translated into 23 languages. Iyanla’s no nonsense approach to living healthy and free has won her acclaim both as it is seen in her own personal story as well as in how as she assists others to see clearly and choose healthy, happy, authentic living.

Her own personal story, chronicled in Peace from Broken Pieces, tells of her extraordinary professional success against a backdrop of personal tragedy. Even as we watched her become a regular expert on The Oprah Winfrey Show, then as the host of her own daily talk show Iyanla, her marriage was crumbling, and her daughter was losing her battle with cancer. And yet her life and her words are a demonstration of the wisdom gained from this difficult time:

“What I have learned from all of the difficulties in my own life is that human beings have very thick skin. I call that skin, spirit, our Highest Most Powerful self. Spirit is the key to everything we desire. It is our weather-proofing, our Teflon, our line of credit that assures if we just keep putting one foot in front of the other, one day; there will be a miraculous payoff.”

Ebony Magazine says “Iyanla’s books, lectures and television appearances have made her a multimedia high priestess of healthy relationships.” According to Emerge Magazine, she is “one of the most dynamic speakers in the United States.” Thousands of followers fill her audiences to connect and engage with this once public defender, Summa Cum Laude graduate of City University of New York Law School, who is now dedicated to facilitating the growth and evolution of human consciousness. Yet with all of that, Iyanla refuses to accept “celebrity status,” as she links with and connects with each person she serves. The combination of warmth and direct honesty she exudes, allows her to simply walk right into the hearts of everyone she serves.

For all of those reasons and more, Iyanla was chosen to be interviewed on the Authentic Living show about her latest book, Forgiveness: 21 Days to Forgive Everyone for Everything. With this topic Iyanla will further facilitate the mission of the Authentic Living show, which is to teach, encourage and facilitate listeners’ access to the Authentic Self and to provide them with the tools to live from that peaceful place within. On March 19, 2014 on, the 7th Wave Network, Iyanla Vanzant will visit with the show’s host, Andrea Mathews, to assist listeners in the forgiveness process.

Mathews is an author in her own right, of three books: Restoring My Soul: A Workbook for Finding and Living the Authentic Self (2007), The Law Of Attraction: The Soul’s Answer To Why It Isn’t Working And How It Can (2011), and Inhabiting Heaven NOW: The Answer to Every Moral Dilemma Ever Posed (Dec. 13, 2013). She is a practicing psychotherapist, speaker, corporate trainer and radio host. Mathews has published several articles in spiritual and informational magazines around the world. She served as the Editor of two small literary presses and has published several poems in other literary magazines. She presents keynote addresses, workshops and seminars for groups, corporations and organizations large and small. She says, “It seems like my basic message both for myself and my world is LIVE, live life to the fullest from the deepest and most profound places in yourself!”

The Authentic Living show is based in the same principles as her first book, and from the very beginning, Mathews has held a clear intention to offer listeners a clear pathway to the Authentic Self. With that goal in mind, she has interviewed some of the world’s most profound and prolific spiritual leaders, bestselling authors and entertainers. People like Marianne Williamson, Tom Shadyac, Rosanne Cash, Gary Zukav, Dr. Brian Weiss, Thomas Moore, Caroline Myss, Byron Katie, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Dr. Judith Orloff, Neale Donald Walsch, Joan Borysenko, Bruce Lipton, Dan Millman, Julia Cameron, John Holland and many more. Each one of these people brings a special message about how to live more authentically. The show has topped over 150,000 listeners.

The show has been noticed by Harpo Studios for its quality of interviews and number of listeners and was chosen and honored to run clips of Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday series on OWN (the Oprah Winfrey Network).

Listeners can hear these shows anytime by going directly to the show’s archives at The show can also be heard on iTunes as a podcast, and even downloaded from either site to copy to CD, so that listeners can have, as Mathews puts it, “a dialog with themselves” in the car on the way to work.” Most recently VoiceAmerica has developed a mobile app that can be downloaded for iPhone, Blackberry and Android mobile phones, for easy listening. Some of the shows can be also be heard on Mathews’ webpage: Authentic Living is currently sponsored by The American Institute of Holistic Theology.
