Omega Institute 6 Ways to Cleanse Your Mind
Have you ever noticed that when you’re inundated with mental noise, it’s harder to stay calm and be productive—much less tune into your innate wisdom and live your life with purpose? Carla Goldstein, Omega Institute’s chief external affairs officer, observes, “We contemplate the past, we dream about the future, we worry, we anticipate, we fantasize about our lives. More
Omega Institute Free Your Clutter & the Rest Will Follow
Say you are presented with an exercise where someone asks you to draw a map of your home. You would likely start with your front door, or maybe a simple outline of the framework of your house. Once you divided the space with walls, doors, and rooms, you would start fleshing out your map with furniture, maybe starting with your bed, and even adding a bit of character and color. However, what would be missing from this map, no matter how much time you spent, are the pockets, or possibly mountains, of clutter that exist in your house. More
Omega Institute Declutter With Feng Shui & Vastu
We’ve all been in spaces that feel sacred and serene—spaces that inspire us to let down our guard and breathe easy as soon as we step foot in them. Sometimes we sense that peaceful quietude in a cathedral, a counselor’s Zen-designed office, a yoga studio, or a local coffee shop. But we’ve also experienced the opposite: the professor’s office that’s bulging with books and paperwork and the friend’s home that’s overstuffed with furniture. Or, wait. Maybe that’s our home. More
Omega Institute Cleansing 101: How to Be Successful With Your Next Cleanse
How to Be Successful With Your Next Cleanse
Cleanses are to this decade, what low-fat diets were to the 1980s. It seems like everyone you meet is trying one type of cleanse or another, but the results vary from person to person. Some people go on a cleanse and feel amazing, while others struggle to stick with it or worse, end up getting sick. It may not be the cleanse itself that’s the problem. It may be the way we are cleansing. While it feels like a magic bullet to take time off from your usual food routine, to have greater success you want to get clear about why you are cleansing and learn the best practices. More
Omega Institute Put Down Your Device & Pick Up Your Life
Break the Cycle of Digital Dependency
For many of us our computers, smartphones, and tablets have taken over our lives, inserting themselves into more and more places as they have replaced functions that used be done by multiple devices, or by time-tested analog technologies.  Taking notes, listening to music, watching television shows or movies, and reading books, magazines, and newspapers are all increasingly done with the same device. Creative pursuits like photography and playing music are all now centered around a computer for many people. More
Monthly Horoscope for March 2014 Aries (March 20-April 19) More
Suspended in Time
March begins with a cluster of three events, none of which is special on its own, but which combined offer us a moment with many interesting opportunities.  Mercury stationed direct on February 28, after a three-week retrograde. Then overnight, into March 1, we had the Pisces New Moon. After that, Mars stationed retrograde. This is not the time to be a bull in a Chinese restaurant. Take it slow, study the menu, and make choices that actually make sense for you. More
Adyashanti on Religion & Revolutionary Thinking
I often wonder what it would be like if Jesus were alive today. Imagine Jesus—who wasn’t a Christian, after all, but a Jew—entering a church today, going up to the pulpit, and giving a sermon. Can you imagine how challenging that would be for the congregation? Can you imagine how uniquely different that sermon would be from what many of us received in church?  More

Omega Institute Measure Your Success By How Much Fun You're Having by Gabrielle Bernstein
For the past two years I’ve made the intention to measure my success with how much fun I’m having. I came to this intention after living in the opposite way and hitting bottom. For a while I was measuring my success based on my level of stress, but then I surrendered to the fact that true success must be based on happiness. More
