Omega Institute Growing Into Yoga by Dan Siegel
Lessons in Mindful Awareness for Kids
For thousands of years, wisdom traditions have taught us that paying attention to the present moment has powerful positive effects on our health. In this new millennium, sci­ence has found empirically validated support for these ancient claims that what we do with our minds and our bodies influences our well-being and our happiness. There are many ways to learn to pay attention to our moment-by-moment experience with openness and kind regard. Mindfulness comes in many forms. More

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
Omega Institute Healing Pain Begins With Breaking Old Patterns by Ana Forrest
We are intensely habitual creatures, and many of our habits don't serve us. Most of us have pain because we've fallen into bad patterns: physical, emotional, and spiritual ones. To heal pain, we need to break those patterns, which can be surprisingly challenging. Don't believe me? Try this: clasp your hands. Look at which thumb and forefinger are on top. Now, interlace your fingers again with the other thumb and forefinger on top. That weird, awkward, uncomfortable feeling? It's called change. And it's hard. More
Monthly Horoscope for June 2014 Aries (March 20-April 19) More
In her 1951 cult classic Esoteric Astrology, Alice A. Bailey describes Gemini as one of the most important signs of the zodiac. If you took a survey, most people would probably not say this. It's not Aquarius, of Age of Aquarius fame. It's not Aries, of Aries Point fame. It's not the ever-infamous Scorpio, and it's not Capricorn, the Moon sign that Augustus Caesar proudly revealed about himself to assert how powerful he was, had stamped into coins, then tried to hide. I think that A.A.B. knew what she was talking about, and that it's more relevant now than ever. More

An Interview With Gabrielle Bernstein
Omega: As a New York Times best-selling author, motivational speaker, and the social media-savvy founder of HerFuture.com, you’ve been hailed as a next-generation thought leader and a role model for postmodern spiritual seekers.

Omega Institute Free to Forgive by Jennifer Thompson
My name is Jennifer Thompson. In 1984, I was a college student, 22 years old, and was brutally raped at knifepoint in my apartment. During the attack, I made a very concerted effort to pay attention to the facial features and anything I could remember to bring to the police department later on, hoping that I would survive. A few hours later, as I was sitting in the police department, it became very clear that I had gotten a very good look at the man who had raped me. And I hated this man with a vengeance and a blind hate that I can’t even articulate. More
