Omega_Institute_Everybody_Is_a_Gold_Mine_by_Robert Peng
An Interview With Robert Peng
Omega: What inspired you to start studying with your spiritual master, Xiao Yao, at such a young age? Robert: When I was eight, I developed a serious heart condition and the doctor couldn’t help. He said, “You have to quit school and stay home to rest,” but that was boring, so within a few days I snuck out of my building and into a nearby hotel. Inside, I found a boiler room where I liked to watch the fire. My master was the boiler attendant. He was such a nice person and a wonderful storyteller. I returned again and again.  More

Omega Institute Zen and the Art of Falling in Love by Brenda Shoshanna
Being in love is our natural state. The real question we should be asking is: Why aren’t we in love all the time? What is it that keeps this most precious inheritance away? How can we reclaim it for our own and return to the intrinsic wisdom and spontaneity we had as children, when each moment was fresh and exciting and filled with adventure? More
Omega Institute 5 Steps to Loving Everyone by Judy Lief
The human realm is said to be the realm of passion. Passion is what holds us together; confused passion is what entraps us, and transformed passion is what can liberate us. Although our passion is often tainted by the tendency to grasp or possess, in essence, it is accepting of others. Passion is attraction, whereas aggression is rejection. More

Omega Institute Yoga & Mindfulness for Kids by Jennifer Cohen Harper
What 10 Years of Research Reveals
Yoga and other mindfulness practices have been the subject of an increasing amount of research as they have become more popular in the West. For example, science now supports many of the benefits traditionally associated with yoga practice, including decreased stress and increased physical and emotional wellness. Recent advances in neuroscience confirm that contemplative practices, such as yoga and mindfulness meditation, can change the physical structure of the brain, effectively training it to work in more positive and productive ways.

Omega Institute Unfolding the Wings of Acceptance by Tara Brach
When we are caught in the trance of unworthiness, we do not clearly recognize what is happening inside us, nor do we feel kind. Our view of who we are is contorted and narrowed and our heart feels hardened against life. As we lean into the experience of the moment—releasing our stories and gently holding our pain or desire—Radical Acceptance begins to unfold. The two parts of genuine acceptance—seeing clearly and holding our experience with compassion—are as interdependent as the two wings of a great bird. Together, they enable us to fly and be free. More
Omega Institute Living In Illumination by Mirabai Starr
Discovering Love as the Heart of Religion
Ever since I was a little girl, I have been drawn to the living heart of every spiritual tradition I have encountered. Like a night wanderer who comes across a sanctuary in the woods, I peer through the stained-glass window, aching to enter and bow down at the altar I see blazing within. More
Omega Institute Accepting What is Real by Tara Brach
About 20 years ago, a close friend and I drove to southern Virginia to attend a retreat led by Vietnamese Zen teacher Thich Nhat Hanh. At the closing ceremony, he asked us to choose a partner—I turned to face my friend—and bow to each other. He then instructed us to hug our partner while taking three conscious and full in-breaths and out-breaths. More
