Omega Institute Stop Second-Guessing Yourself: An Interview With Byron Katie, Part 1
An Interview With Byron Katie, Part 1
Omega: How is The Work, or the process of inquiry, different from doubting or second-guessing? Katie: As different as day from night. Doubting or second-guessing comes from a lack of self-confidence and leads to confusion, which is only suffering. Inquiry leads to the end of suffering. It always leaves you as a kinder human being.

Omega Institute Loving Without Exception: An Interview With Byron Katie, Part 2
An Interview With Byron Katie, Part 2
Omega: Your experience of “waking up to reality” was very dramatic. Such experiences won’t happen to most people, so how can the rest of us awaken? Katie: Thought by thought. People think that they need to get “enlightened” in order to be free, and nobody knows what enlightenment is. Yes, it’s in the sacred texts, and yes, this guru or that lama says he has attained it, but that’s just a concept; it’s the story of a past. More
Omega Institute Living Jivamukti Yoga
An Interview With Sharon Gannon and David Life
Omega: You met as artists in New York City in the early 1980s. How did studying and teaching yoga transform your life at that time? Sharon: Yoga informed our life. It provided us something to do together, which was creative, the ultimate creative adventure: self-realization. David: My life transformed into being mainly interested in yoga, yogis, and yoga philosophy—consequently my interest in other things diminished. But most other things that could attract my interest seemed to pale in comparison to the immensity of yoga. More
Omega Institute Find Greater Health in Unexpected Ways
A beautiful sunrise that suffuses you with peace. A painting that inspires you and moves you to create your own art. The clear night sky whose expanse of stars makes you feel insignificant and significant at the same time. While it may be difficult to put these experiences into words, there are times when you feel a connection happening inside. It’s as if seemingly separate parts of yourself come together, or everything between you and the rest of the world dissolves, and suddenly you feel acutely alive. More
Omega Institute Experience a State of Oneness by Alberto Villoldo
Years ago I was amazed to learn that 90 percent of the human body consists of bacteria that are alien to us. Only the remaining 10 percent of the body is made up of our own DNA. So does this mean that “I” am only that 10 percent? No. I am the energy field that organizes this amazing living colony that has a sense of self, of "I-ness." The 100 trillion cells of my colony are kept humming in harmony and balance by the Luminous Energy Field (LEF), operating through my brain and nervous system. More
Omega Institute Sound Meditation 101
What: Sound meditation uses pleasant, nonvocal sound as the object of concentration.

Types: Tibetan singing bowl meditation, crystal bowl meditation, or gong meditation in the Kundalini Yoga tradition. There is also the related practice of chanting meditation. More
Omega Institute Can Past Lives Help Heal Current Relationships? by Brian Weiss
Omega: How can past-life regression help heal and strengthen present-day relationships? Brian: We come in again and again with the same souls. So, your grandmother may come back as your grandson, and you might recognize her. When we experience love at first sight, we've been connected with that person in past lives. The memories from these other lives can still be fresh in many ways. When we remember and release, it helps to heal that current relationship.  More
