A Buddhist Perspective on Walking the Spiritual Path
Many people turn to a spiritual path because they think it will make their pain go away. But as Andrew Holecek explains, true spirituality is not about making you feel good; it is about making you feel real.  “It is sometimes easier to wake up when we’re in extreme pain.”—Dzigar Kongtrul More

It's a tough world for any empath, but there are particular obstacles and challenges encountered by highly sensitive men. Psychiatrist and energy expert Judith Orloff offers some clear steps to help empathic men deal with being sensitive in a world where men are told that being "too emotional" is bad. More

We all try to be positive, but what happens when we find ourselves in negative thinking patterns? Intuitive Lynn A. Robinson offers this helpful process that can turn negative thoughts to a positive attitude and open the doors to abundance. More
To begin this simple but relaxing meditation, select a quiet time and place. You can be seated on a cushion or chair. Take a upright yet relaxed posture, as though with the quiet dignity of a king or queen. More
Each full breath we take has a beneficial impact. If we take that full breath consciously, with awareness, the benefits are exponentially increased. We can develop a practice of breathing this way. We can even cultivate skill in the way we allow our breath to be modulated by our experiences, and the ways that we encourage a full deep breath in every moment—in the presence of all of the vicissitudes of a human life.

Self-Effort as a Barrier to Liberation
Sometimes we try so hard on our spiritual journey that we get in our own way. David Harshada Wagner describes how dropping all effort and spending time in nature helped him recognize his own divine nature. "Self-effort is the greatest impediment to realization.” The old swami’s words felt like a kick in the stomach. We were having lunch together, discussing sadhana and the role of self-effort on the spiritual path. When he said this, immediately, I was ready to argue. More
The real search isn’t a search into tomorrow, or to anywhere other than now. It’s starting to look into the very nature of this moment. In order to do that, you have to “stand in your own two shoes,” as my teacher used to say. What she meant by “standing in your own two shoes” is you have to look clearly into your own experience. Stop trying to have someone else’s experience. Stop chasing freedom or happiness, or even spiritual enlightenment. Stand in your own shoes, and examine closely: What’s happening right here and right now? Is it possible to let go of trying to make anything happen? More
Can breathwork and mindful awareness help you cultivate well-being and lead to a harmonious state of mind? Dan Siegel, codirector of the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA and a leader in the field of contemplative neuroscience, explains how breath awareness works. More
An Omega Story
When it comes to fear, nothing terrifies some people more than public speaking. Here, Dara Riegel describes how her time at Omega had a positive impact on her public speaking abilities and her life, by helping her overcome her own fears. Today I presented on the power of blogging to an audience of 60 business owners. And I didn’t vomit. Or cry. Or turn the color of a freshly slapped face. More
