Excerpt via Patheos:
Is Oprah Teaching Subud?
Subud, an acronym derived from the Sanskrit, Susila Budhi Dharma, is the Indonesian form of the Arabic word subh, meaning “morning” and also refers to the Islamic pre-dawn prayer. The principles of “right living” (Susila) as “one’s highest self” (Budhi), is rooted in a “path of surrender” (Dharma) to Allah.
When Oprah instructed approximately 1,000 students to “… put your thumb to your middle finger and gather your other fingers around, and let’s feel the vibration and pulse of your personal energy as you take three deep breaths with me,” she was gesturing the shahada.

Well-known to all Muslims, signaling the shahada affirms “There is but one God, Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger.” (Some might remember when Barack Obama publicly gestured the shahada to African diplomats in 2014.)
The “inner contact” to which Oprah refered is one aspect of the latihan kejiwaan, a practice taught by Subud founder Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo. He described the latihan as spontaneous “inner teaching,” during which he claimed “a primordial Power hidden within human beings and all creatures,” appears coming from “the spirit of God.”
Many of the African schools Oprah financially supports are part of an international SUBUD network supported by Susila foundations.
Likewise, Oprah’s friend, Barack Obama, was well familiar with Subud; his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, practiced it. It’s uncertain whether Obama practiced Subud, however the The American Thinker reported Obama’s last name was once “Soebarkah” evidenced in his mother’s 1965 passport documents. Dunham’s friend and fellow Subud member Loretta Fuddy, the American Thinker also reported, was Subud USA’s chairwoman and the Hawaiian state health director who released Obama’s alleged long-form birth certificate.
Obama’s billionaire friends George Soros and Maurice Strong (one of Agenda 21’s lead proponents) also financially support Subud organizations. Some of many examples include a Subud foundation in Indonesia and numerous “religious and educational” centers in Colorado. The Crestone/Baca community claims it is “the largest intentional interfaith ecumenical community in North America.” [...] More @ Patheos.
