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

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

How to Get What You Want
The Premise What shows up in our lives is a direct reflection of our inner thoughts and emotions. My friend Linda told me an amazing story about a young woman she once observed at the airport. This poor young thing was struggling with three heavy bags. But worse than the unwieldiness of her baggage was her less-than-positive attitude. With great gusto, she was vocalizing her immense disgust at a lack of help. “Why is the bus taking so long?" she kept shouting. "Where in the hell is that bus? This is completely unacceptable!” More
Omega Institute We Are All Connected by Brian Weiss
