Omega Institute Miso Vegetable Soup: A Cooking Meditation by Suzanne Boothby
A Cooking Meditation
Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh sums up Zen practice with these few words: “Smile, breathe, and go slowly.” In our busy lives, it's not uncommon to rush when preparing (and eating) a meal. But miso loses healthful enzymes and its aroma when boiled, so rushing is not the best strategy. Warming the soup slowly and gently requires mindful attention, which is the perfect opportunity to take Thich Nhat Hanh's advice. More

More
Omega Institute Devotional Meditation & Prayer 101

Omega Institute It All Boils Down to Love: An Interview With James Van Praagh
An Interview With James Van Praagh
Omega: How do you define the soul? James: Instead of using the word "God," some people prefer to use terms like "the Divine," "the Creator," or "the Source." I have started using an acronym I created call O.N.E. It stands for Omnipresent Nurturing Energy. This term serves two purposes: besides letting people know I believe that everything is one and the same, it establishes my belief that everything is energy. More
