Omega Institute Living a Life of Awareness & Acceptance
Most people do not live in a cloistered monastery in the middle of nowhere, free to practice awareness in solitude. They, like you, live in a community—where the people they love and the noise of the world attempt to hook their attention in every possible way. Even those who do live in an ashram or a monastery, a space created almost exclusively for practicing awareness, will tell you that their world is far from being distraction-free. So, regardless of where you are, coming into and out of awareness is a universal human condition. More

An Interview With Elizabeth Gilbert, Part 2
Omega: You have a very disciplined approach to your writing, but your meditation practice has ebbed and flowed. What is the growing edge in your spiritual practice?  Elizabeth: I keep trying.

Omega Institute Living an Engaged Life: An Interview With Tara Brach, Part 1
An Interview With Tara Brach, Part 1
Omega: What motivated you to begin meditating? Tara: There were two reasons. First, I had the sense I needed to improve myself. I thought meditation would diminish the parts of me I didn’t like and I'd become a more perfect and awake person. I don't know where I got that idea, but I worked really hard at it. I would go to different teachers and they would say, "Just relax, it's okay," but I would then take that on as the next way to improve myself. More
Omega Institute How to Embrace Presence in Body & Mind: An Interview With Tara Brach, Part 2
An Interview With Tara Brach, Part 2
Omega: We seem to have an uneasy relationship with the body in Western culture. We are especially averse to pain, discomfort, and aging. How can we learn to be more at home in the body no matter our physical condition? More
Mercury is currently retrograde in Gemini, making several contacts to Neptune in Pisces. Mercury is the worldly god of technology and communication. Neptune is the worldly god of the imagination, deception, dreams, and intoxicating substances. Put them together in the digital environment and we are likely to get some observable effects, or rather, effects worth observing. Mercury retrogrades are a time to pay attention and tune into the environment; the challenges make that environment more noticeable, and your responses to it easier to feel. More
Omega Institute Hope, Connection & Survival in the Wild by Les Stroud
As a young boy I played outside my cottage in the forest, pretending to survive. I made pillows out of moss and put branches up for crude shelter roofs. I talked to trees and bugs and animals. It was my escape. My refuge from a mediocre life in suburbia. I dreamed of being like Jacques Cousteau. I dreamed of being like Tarzan. And, lo and behold, what is Survivorman if not the perfect hybrid of those two dreams? But in the adult world of television production, my reason for those dreams—connecting to nature—disappeared into the din of business, money, and schedules.  More
