Omega Institute Being a Nonbeliever During the Holidays
Finding Meaning in a Season of Celebration
If you look at your calendar on any given month, you will find a number of religious holidays. March has everything from the beginning of Lent (a Christian holiday) to Naw Ruz (a Baha’i holiday) and April has more than a dozen religious holidays. However, in the West, we think of the "holiday season” as, not so much a season, but the month of December. December anchors the year with the blockbuster holidays of Christmas and Hanukkah, along with Kwanzaa and Las Posadas. It is a time of cheer, excitement, and gatherings, both familial and communal. More
Omega Institute Staying Grounded With a Spiritual Practice by Ram Dass
Most of us are enmeshed in the world, and we get lost very easily in the stuff of life. A daily practice is very useful to keep reminding you, to keep pulling you back and waking you up again, giving you a chance to see how you got lost the day before, and to keep putting what's happening to you in the world back into a spiritual perspective. More
Omega Institute Deciding to Go Solo For the Holidays
Ram Dass said it best, “If you think you are truly enlightened, go spend a weekend with your parents.” Many people might extend this sentiment to the holidays. While some see it as a time to gather and celebrate with community and family, others might feel a desire to catch up on much-needed downtime and just be alone. More
Omega Institute Walking Meditation for Kids by Jennifer Cohen Harper
Walking Meditation is a grounding and steadying mindfulness activity that gives your child access to something that she can do anytime and anyplace when she needs to tune in to her own body and mind. It is a simple but supportive practice. The repetitive movement is soothing, and for many children the movement helps to quiet their minds. This is best done without shoes on.   More
Omega Institute Find Your In-Breath
4 Ways Women Can Reduce Holiday Stress
Holiday stress seems about as traditional these days as cookie exchanges and tree trimming. Women in particular tend to have full plates all year, but especially during this end-of-year rush. More
Exploring Scorpio Eclipse Conjunct Saturn
November 2013 is upon us, and we are upon it—and it is clearly the most interesting month of 2013 astrology. I would say "so far," but this astrology takes us through the end of the year, when a whole phase of history begins with the Capricorn New Moon on New Year's Day.   More

Omega Institute Stop Hunting for the Next Sound
A Nature Meditation
“The truth can be found right here. The Great Spirit is within and that’s the truth.” Bob Berkebile shared this wisdom at the 2013 Omega Center for Sustainable Living Conference: Where We Go From Here. The teaching comes from one of his most influential teachers, Iroquois Chief Leon Shenandoah, who National Geographic referred to as the “chief of chiefs.” More
Omega Institute Nature Will Always Be More Delightful Than You Can Imagine by Janine Benyus
Omega: You described an experiment in which you ask people go into the woods, sit, observe, and let nature come to them. It seems the same exercise could have been designed by a meditation teacher. "Do you have a meditation practice?"  More
Omega Institute Getting to Know the Language of Yoga
108 Important Sanskrit Terms
Originating in ancient India and considered to be one of the oldest languages on Earth, Sanskrit is still relevant to yoga practice today. Sanskrit is, quite literally, the language of yoga. Many of the chants you sing in kirtan, the mantras you silently repeat in meditation, and the terms you hear in yoga class are ancient Sanskrit words. More
