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_How_to_Start_a_Sadhana_Practice
If you’re craving a deeper connection to yourself and the divine, one way to cultivate it is through a daily spiritual practice. In the yoga tradition, the Sanskrit term for this kind of spiritual practice is sadhana—and its benefits are worth considering. 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 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 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 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
