Omega Institute All You Need is Love by James Van Praagh
Life Beyond the 5 Senses
Most of the people who come to my lectures want to see me make contact with the consciousness of those who no longer inhabit this physical dimension, but I always give them a healthy dose of what really matters: the truth that there is no "death" and that what we believe about our lives on Earth—about this being our true nature—is just an illusion. We are eternal souls that have no beginning and no end, but while we're incarnated in this physical dimension, we are only aware of now. More
The translator was laughing so hard he could not speak. He seemed to have heard the funniest thing in his life. We were all waiting for the English version of what Ogyen Trinley Dorje, the Tibetan Buddhist leader known as the 17th Karmapa, had said. The monastery up in Woodstock, New York, is the Karmapa's North American base. He was here on his second visit to the U.S. on April 18. The translator, Lama Yeshe Gyamtso, tried to compose himself, but without much success. He finally seemed to find his center, then after taking about two breaths, he burst into laughter again. More
Omega Institute Bring More Mindfulness to Your Writing
Writing is a practice that requires both focus and imagination. Writers must paint details on the page that translate abstract ideas from their mind into readable stories and content. Poet Robert Bly once said, “If we want to create art we have to stitch together the inner world and the outer world.” Mindfulness, which is defined as paying attention to our moment-to-moment experience with nonjudgmental awareness, can do just that.

Omega Institute Sustaining Your Passion
Passion is an ongoing, living process that needs to be reignited on a regular basis. Not surprisingly, most of the elements that sustain passion are precisely the same ongoing practices that sustain quality of life in general. In particular, there are five practices I can describe that will help you sustain passion, regardless of your environment.  Engage in a Spiritual Practice More
Omega Institute Mindful Eating Offers Hope to Diabetics & Binge Eaters
Mindful eating is a practice, not a diet. It doesn't offer recipes, menu plans, or lists of allowed and restricted foods. Instead, it asks you to use all your senses, take breaths between bites, and bring more awareness to the process of eating. More
Omega Institute Parenthood Is a River of Worry & Love By Elizabeth Lesser
If you would like to be broken open—if you want to pursue a Phoenix Process of the highest order—I would recommend raising children. Parenthood is a clumsy yet majestic dance in the flames. When you parent you fall in love with a person who is always changing into someone else, and whom you know will leave you. Yet most parents will say that they have never given themselves to anyone as fully as they have to their children. Parenting is a career with the crazy-making job requirement of simultaneously surrendering to and letting go of someone you love, over and over and over again. More
Omega Institute Breathing Meditation 101

The Naturopathic Doctor One of the first things to do is connect to your breath. If you're a shallow breather, spend a few minutes feeling what it’s like to breath into your belly. This will allow your parasympathetic nervous system to relax. More
Omega Institute Make Self-Care a Habit
A habit is a behavior that’s wired into our brains so well that we perform it without thinking. It's automatic. Neuroscientists at MIT have recently found a key that gives us a little advantage in determining which habits will prevail in our daily life. More
