Core Staff Experience

Throughout the year, Omega employs about 70 core staff who live off campus and support Omega in a variety of managerial and administrative positions. These are year-round, salaried jobs with full benefits. Most core staff live in the Hudson Valley. They come from nearly all walks of life and join together to serve Omega’s mission to provide hope and healing to individuals and society through innovative educational experiences that awaken the best in the human spirit.

To complement the meaningful work experience found within all jobs at Omega, our exclusive staff education program is designed to support a process of self-discovery within the context of community life. Omega’s programs, which staff attend or support through their work, embrace the holistic concept of equal emphasis on mind, body, heart, and spirit, as well as the social dimensions of the self.

In addition to our staff classes, we also have a number of special events, including community dances, talent shows, arts and crafts fairs, and a Staff Sanctuary Hour, where we gather as a community to hear special guests share wisdom from their life experience. Speakers have included Seane Corn, Julia Butterfly Hill, Bobby McFerrin, Alex and Allyson Grey, Alan Arkin, Elizabeth Lesser, and Stephan Rechtschaffen.
