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
Omega Institute Twin Healing Traditions: A History of Medicine & Religion by Harold G. Koenig
A History of Medicine & Religion
Many today might think that religion and medicine are two very different endeavors, that the mere suggestion that religion is relevant to health and health care is something new and different. However, this is not true.  What is new and different is the distinct separation of religion from medicine, a relatively recent phenomenon in the United States and that, in some countries, has still not occurred.

An Interview With Robert Peng
Omega: What inspired you to start studying with your spiritual master, Xiao Yao, at such a young age? Robert: When I was eight, I developed a serious heart condition and the doctor couldn’t help. He said, “You have to quit school and stay home to rest,” but that was boring, so within a few days I snuck out of my building and into a nearby hotel. Inside, I found a boiler room where I liked to watch the fire. My master was the boiler attendant. He was such a nice person and a wonderful storyteller. I returned again and again.  More
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 Yoga & Mindfulness for Kids by Jennifer Cohen Harper
What 10 Years of Research Reveals
Yoga and other mindfulness practices have been the subject of an increasing amount of research as they have become more popular in the West. For example, science now supports many of the benefits traditionally associated with yoga practice, including decreased stress and increased physical and emotional wellness. Recent advances in neuroscience confirm that contemplative practices, such as yoga and mindfulness meditation, can change the physical structure of the brain, effectively training it to work in more positive and productive ways.
