Omega Institute Nature Nurtures Spirituality & Environmentalism in Kids
You’ve probably heard that kids today spend far less time outdoors than they did two decades ago—it's probably true for you, too. According to studies, American kids spend half as much time outside today as they did in the 1990s, and more than a quarter of British children spend less than 30 minutes a week (that's less than 5 minutes a day) outdoors.

January 2015: A Beginner’s Guide to the 21st Century by Eric Francis
It’s taken me 14 years to get a handle on the 21st century, but I finally feel like I’m making some progress. One thing that I will say is that I’m learning how helpful it is to look to the past for some information about where we are today. It may not be the ultimate guide, but if you want to know where “here” is, it’s a good idea to know where you came from and how you went from there. More
Omega Institute In Service of Sustainability: Developing a Practice of Caring for Others & the Earth
Developing a Practice of Caring for Others & the Earth
It seems that all religions include teachings on how to be of service to the world and how to care for each other. For Hindus, karma yoga is the yoga of action and selfless service. Christians are encouraged to love one another and bear each others' burdens (Galatians 6:2). Muslims have the concept of īthār, or "preferring others to oneself." The Torah instructs Jews to love their neighbors (Leviticus 19:18). The Dalai Lama, a voice for the global Buddhist community, says, "My religion in kindness." What does this have to do with sustainability? Everything. More
Omega Institute Take a Stand In Your Life By Sitting Down to Meditate by Jon Kabat-Zinn
In its outward manifestation, meditation appears to involve either stopping, by parking the body in stillness that suspends activity, or giving oneself over to flowing movement. In either case, it is an embodiment of wise attention, an inward gesture undertaken for the most part in silence, a shift from doing to simply being. It is an act that may at first seem artificial but that we soon discover, if we keep at it, is ultimately one of pure love for the life unfolding within us and around us. More
Omega Institute Practicing The Work at Work by Byron Katie
“My boss just doesn't appreciate me,” is a common complaint heard in many offices across the country.
