Dynamic and inspiring spiritual teacher, Adyashanti reveals that as you become more conscious, the desire to be of service becomes a natural instinct.

Omega Institute Zen and the Art of Falling in Love by Brenda Shoshanna
Being in love is our natural state. The real question we should be asking is: Why aren’t we in love all the time? What is it that keeps this most precious inheritance away? How can we reclaim it for our own and return to the intrinsic wisdom and spontaneity we had as children, when each moment was fresh and exciting and filled with adventure? More
Omega Institute 5 Steps to Loving Everyone by Judy Lief
The human realm is said to be the realm of passion. Passion is what holds us together; confused passion is what entraps us, and transformed passion is what can liberate us. Although our passion is often tainted by the tendency to grasp or possess, in essence, it is accepting of others. Passion is attraction, whereas aggression is rejection. More
Omega Institute Unfolding the Wings of Acceptance by Tara Brach
When we are caught in the trance of unworthiness, we do not clearly recognize what is happening inside us, nor do we feel kind. Our view of who we are is contorted and narrowed and our heart feels hardened against life. As we lean into the experience of the moment—releasing our stories and gently holding our pain or desire—Radical Acceptance begins to unfold. The two parts of genuine acceptance—seeing clearly and holding our experience with compassion—are as interdependent as the two wings of a great bird. Together, they enable us to fly and be free. More
Omega Institute Accepting What is Real by Tara Brach
About 20 years ago, a close friend and I drove to southern Virginia to attend a retreat led by Vietnamese Zen teacher Thich Nhat Hanh. At the closing ceremony, he asked us to choose a partner—I turned to face my friend—and bow to each other. He then instructed us to hug our partner while taking three conscious and full in-breaths and out-breaths. More
Omega Institute 7 Ways to Practice Generosity by Rev. Ed Bacon
Fear can lead us to live lives of self-absorption, in which we covet blessings instead of conferring them on others. We find we can’t let go, we assume the worst, we feel insecure, we act without thinking—or perhaps we do not act enough. It is hardly surprising that amid the pressure of day-to-day life and under the yoke of a fearful culture many of us struggle to open our hearts and be generous. More
Omega Institute Living In Illumination by Mirabai Starr
Discovering Love as the Heart of Religion
Ever since I was a little girl, I have been drawn to the living heart of every spiritual tradition I have encountered. Like a night wanderer who comes across a sanctuary in the woods, I peer through the stained-glass window, aching to enter and bow down at the altar I see blazing within. More

Omega Institute You May Be More Resilient Than You Think by Linda Graham
My next-door neighbor has a big, affectionate, 125-pound Malamut named Barney and an eight-year-old granddaughter who adores him. One day, as Samantha was arriving to visit, I watched her run up to Barney to give him a hug. Barney responded exuberantly, licking her face profusely. He was simply greeting her with affection, but Samantha clearly wasn’t prepared for such rough-and-tumble love: she burst into tears. More

Omega Institute Finding Meaning & Purpose at Work
Lessons From the Bhagavad Gita
Written in approximately 200 C.E., the Bhagavad Gita unfolds as a dialogue between a warrior prince named Arjuna and Lord Krishna, who serves as his spiritual guide and charioteer as Arjuna prepares to fight against his own kinsmen to reclaim his kingdom’s throne. Along the way, Krishna and Arjuna discuss the various paths of yoga; the laws of karma; personal dharma; and the purpose of life. Here is Krishna’s advice for finding (and doing) work that really matters in the world, as interpreted by three spiritual teachers: Ram Dass, Sally Kempton, and the late Eknath Easwaran. More
