Omega Institute Thinking Outside of the "Man Box": An Interview With Tony Porter
An Interview With Tony Porter
Omega: What exactly is a “man box” and how does it serve, as well as inhibit, manhood?  Tony: The “man box” is how men have been collectively socialized to understand what it means to be a man. It doesn’t mean that all men respond in the same way to this collective socialization but it does mean that all men have an understanding of this socialization. More
Omega Institute The Yoga of Self-Mastery by Mandy Ingber
What is it to have self-mastery? I find myself asking this question often. It is a theme in many aspects of my life. Ultimately, self-responsibility and having mastery over our own actions, thoughts, and words may change and transform our lives and ourselves for the better. In my case, it’s what I do not do that aids in this process. In the yoga of self-mastery, I restrict my negative actions or discard what is not useful. It is a paring down and a resculpting. I eliminate what is unnecessary to reveal the truth in a purer way. Work With Your Emotions More
Omega Institute Share Your Light With the World by Gabrielle Bernstein
You probably don’t talk up your own awesomeness on a regular basis—if ever. Most of us, especially women, have been taught to see anything more than “quiet” confidence as boasting. In many cases the brighter we shine, the more negative reactions we receive: maybe your big promotion made you the target of office gossip, or you became a Pilates rock star and were met with more backhanded compliments than congratulations. These kinds of experiences lead us to lose sight of our talents and inner spark, which in turn deprives the world of our greatness. More
A Matter of Trust
April 2014 is the month of the long-anticipated cardinal grand cross—what I have called the peak astrology of the 2012 era. The aspect pattern that's exact on April 23 has been forming for many decades, a hologram swirling in the seemingly random movements of the cosmos awaiting its moment of emergence. That is about to arrive with both deeply personal themes and vast global ones. They share a common thread, and that is trust. More

Omega Institute Put Your Partner Before Your Phone
Banish phones from the bedroom. Use a dedicated clock for your alarm. If you need to have your phone in your room—for example, you may be in a profession that really does require you to be reached at any hour—pledge not to check email while in bed. Make the bedroom an intimate, unplugged place.  More
Omega Institute Breathing Together: How the Breath You Take Can Improve Relationships by Shannon Sexton
How the Breath You Take Can Improve Relationships
In September 2013, I attended a five-day conference at Omega called Breathwork Immersion: From Science to Samadhi. As a longtime yoga student, I was excited to explore the scientific and spiritual dimensions of the breath, and to learn new breathing techniques with some of the leading experts in the field. More
For the first 10 years of my work as a psychiatrist, I did not think much about trauma. I was in my 30s, and many of the people I worked with were not much older than I was. More
Omega_Institute_Feel_Your_Fear_Find_Your_Power_by_Ana_Forrest
Omega: When you choose to opt out of suffering, how does it change you and the way you experience life? Ana: Instead of choosing suffering, I choose to live my life in a way that makes me proud of myself. I choose actions that brighten, instead of dim, my Spirit. I stalk and hunt my damaging behaviors and retrain them, just like teaching a horse or student to retrain bad habits. Then, I refocus my actions to align with my Spirit pledge of doing my part in mending the Hoop of the People. More
On Silence Silence is a good friend. It allows for the natural progression of things. Still, I remain nervous, anxious as ever to fill the void as I used to with interesting questions, chit-chat, sweet nothings that nice girls like me were taught to utter. I sure did have that nice girl persona down pat. Now what takes the place of nice? On Being A Woman More
