Dynamic and inspiring spiritual teacher, Adyashanti reveals that as you become more conscious, the desire to be of service becomes a natural instinct. But, it is important to look deeply at your motivations to understand if you are coming to service from a place of division—you against them—which may create resistance, rather than coming to service from a place of wholeness which will create deeper transformation for all.

Mindfulness does not belong to Christianity, Buddhism, or Taoism, just as the breath we inhale and exhale does not belong to any one of us. Everywhere human beings have lived, we have needed to cultivate attention; whether it was for hunting, fashioning tools or clothes, or intellectual pursuits. We have always needed compassion to live in harmony and enjoy our lives. Humans from every culture have developed wisdom to ask the big questions of life. These universal practices have been cultivated throughout millennia—or, we may say, they have cultivated us. More
Omega Institute What Is Kirtan? by Ram Dass
The Names of God or praises of God can be sung as well as spoken. Often, when your heart wells up, singing alone expresses the fullness of your love for God. As you sing the Name repeatedly, the rhythm and melody fan your emotions. If this ecstasy is heightened, distinctions begin to fall away until only love, only the beloved, remain. More

Omega Institute Navigating Our Differences by Daniel P. Barbezat and Mirabai Bush
One of the great advances in higher education over the past 50 years has been the increase in variation among students, faculty, administration, and staff. This has deepened the learning within classrooms, greatly enriched both our institutions and our society, and given opportunities to a far greater number of people than ever before. We believe it is important to stress “variation” rather than “diversity” because as difference (diversity) rises, we need to keep a focus on our common connection (variation). We acknowledge difference and also hold our commonality. More

Omega Institute The Science of Mindfulness by Daniel Rechtschaffen
In practicing mindfulness, we can learn to effectively integrate different parts of the brain and mediate internal conflicts. There is a basic neuroscience concept, “Nerve cells that fire together, wire together.” Due to recent findings of neural plasticity, which is the ability for the connections in our brains to change and adapt throughout our lives, we now understand that our brains can generate stronger and healthier neural connections based on our mental habits.

Omega Institute One Thing at a Time by Sharon Salzberg
How Multitasking Leads to Mindlessness
We would like to believe that attention is infinite, but it isn’t. That is why multitasking is a misnomer. The brain can focus only on one thing at a time. We take in information sequentially. When we attempt to focus on multiple tasks simultaneously, what actually happens is that we switch back and forth between tasks, paying less attention to both. More

Omega Institute We Are All Connected by Brian Weiss
Once, while I was teaching a large group workshop, I noticed a little card. On it was a poem or prayer that read: “Buddha nature pervades the whole universe, existing right here and now. I dedicate the merit of this practice to all sentient beings. Together, we realize liberation.” More
