Omega Institute Pema Chödrön: Change Means We Are Alive
A leading exponent of teachings on meditation and how they apply to everyday life, Pema Chödrön is widely known for her insightful, down-to-earth interpretation of Tibetan Buddhism for Western audiences. She reminds us that although our mind perceives things as being fixed, everything is, in fact, changing all the time. Life is so fluid it's more like being in a river rather than standing on solid ground. It's this change that offers unlimited possibility for freshness and uniqueness.   More

Omega Institute Anger, Race & Creating Change: An Interview With Tara Brach
An Interview With Tara Brach
Omega: Many activists are fueled by anger at injustice, but approaching this important work with anger often leads to burnout. How can we do activist work in a more conscious, sustainable way?  More
Omega Institute Eating Meditation 101
What: Eating meditation is the art of mindfully chewing and swallowing each bite of your food. As Buddhist teacher Jack Kornfield writes in Meditation for Beginners, “the only real rule is that you really pay attention to what you eat.” More
Omega Institute 2 Relationships That Impact Your Healthh by Joe Cross
Why is it that everyone seems to know the right thing to do when it comes to healthy eating, yet so few practice it? Even more importantly, why is it that so many people who have experienced the joy and liberation of healthy living end up sliding back? If you ask me what big, overarching lessons I’ve learned, I would say that whether you succeed or not comes down to two relationships: 1. The relationship you have with yourself. 2. The relationship you have with plants. More
Omega Institute Change the Channel in Your Mind by Loch Kelly
Your mind is like a TV or radio with lots of stations playing all at once. Many of us are tuned in to the Thinking Channel all day long, and most of these programs are talk shows. We don’t realize that there is a tuner that will allow us to change the channel. However, when we learn to use local awareness, then talk shows of the Thinking Channel no longer need to be our regularly scheduled programs. There are other dimensions of mind and identity that are always available and can be accessed with local awareness. More
Omega Institute Did You Play Today?
"We do not quit playing because we grow old; we grow old because we quit playing." While it's unclear exactly who coined this phrase, it's a sentiment worth taking to heart. Play is an essential part of life. But what exactly is it? Like art, we know it when we see and experience it. More
Omega Institute Living a Life of Awareness & Acceptance
Most people do not live in a cloistered monastery in the middle of nowhere, free to practice awareness in solitude. They, like you, live in a community—where the people they love and the noise of the world attempt to hook their attention in every possible way. Even those who do live in an ashram or a monastery, a space created almost exclusively for practicing awareness, will tell you that their world is far from being distraction-free. So, regardless of where you are, coming into and out of awareness is a universal human condition. More

An Interview With Bonnie St. John, Part 1
