Omega Institute What Can We Learn From Personality Tests?
It seems there is an online quiz to tell you anything about yourself these days. Which city should you live in? Which pet should you have? What color is your aura? More
Omega Institute Crossing the Abyss From the Mind to the Heart Jack Kornfield
A Daily Practice to Reconnect With Your Feelings
The “Jewel in the Lotus” is the translation of the universal compassion mantra “Om Mani Padme Hum.” While it has many meanings, one explanation of its symbolism is that compassion arises when the jewel of the mind rests in the lotus of the heart. The awakened mind has a diamond-like clarity. When this clear insight rests in the heart’s tender compassion, both dimensions of liberation are fulfilled. More

What: Chanting meditation is a musical practice during which you sing or chant sacred mantras, phrases, and/or songs, often accompanied by live instruments.

What: During nature meditation, you focus on one or more of the following: the sights, sounds, smells, or even the taste or feel of nature. Although nature meditation is typically performed outdoors, there are also nature-themed guided visualizations you can do indoors. Types: There are a number of ways to meditate with nature, including a sunset meditation, labyrinth meditation, or tree meditation. You can also practice walking meditation and standing meditation outside, or while concentrating on a nature-based theme inside. More
Omega Institute Seeking Higher Self by Beryl Bender Birch
The Journey Within
Yoga is simple. It only takes a little attention, a little practice every day, and soon we realize we have developed a regular practice. We meditate for ten or fifteen minutes every morning; we do a regular asana practice. We use the breathing exercises or a yoga nidra recording to relax and calm the mind. More
Omega: In The Master Key, you wrote that “falling in love has more in common with spiritual illumination that we might think. The difference is that in one case, we awaken alone and in the other, we awaken in mutuality.” But you said that mutual awakening isn't easy. Why do our romantic relationships “feel like heaven in the beginning but then a voyage into hell”? What can we do to keep our relationships healthy and happy for the long term? More
Omega Institute Mindfulness for Everyone
Once relegated to discussions in health food stores or New Age bookstores, today mindfulness is being talked about almost everywhere and by almost everyone. Mindfulness—the practice of bringing nonjudgmental attention to the present moment—can be practiced formally in meditation and informally in life by bringing attention to whatever you're doing as you do it.
