Omega Institute Past-Life Wisdom: An Interview With Brian Weiss
An Interview With Brian Weiss
Omega: The story you've told is that in 1980 you were using traditional hypnotherapy to take a patient back to the roots of her phobias. Instead of going back to her childhood, she went back 4,000 years to a different lifetime. How skeptical were you at that moment, and what helped you open up to the idea of past lives?   More

Omega Institute Kirtan: A New Healing Tool for Veterans?
When you picture a kirtan enthusiast in your mind’s eye, do you think of a retired American sniper who did three tours in Iraq? What about a former female sergeant who’s struggling with lung injuries, rage, and post-traumatic stress?  Some veterans are discovering that kirtan—a call-and-response form of mantra chanting that originated in India—is helping them cope with conditions such as PTSD and re-entry into civilian life. More
Omega Institute Glimpsing Eternity by Mark Nepo
Being deaf, Beethoven could hear the music of the universe, unheard by the rest of us. The String Quartet No. 14 in C# minor, Opus 131, played without pause, seems to gather the slow and steady rise of the sun, mixing it with the unyielding turn of the Earth around the fire in its center. He somehow weaves the discord of all the roots on Earth gripping further in the ground with the harmony of the winds that swirl through the mountains and over the oceans. More

Omega Institute Pause and Absorb by Colleen Saidman
In 2006, Rodney and I had the privilege of taking a few classes with B.K.S. Iyengar. When it came time for headstand, I informed the yoga master that I didn’t do them—I have a seizure disorder, and I always felt it was aggravated by headstands. He told me, in no uncertain terms, to stand on my head now! And I did. I stayed up, and only came down when he said it was time. More
Omega Institute Seeing Through the Dark by Caroline Myss
On Being a Medical IntuitiveWhen I was a kid, I would do readings on houses. When we were driving around I would say to my mom, “You know what that house looks like inside? The people in there are happy, and the people in that house are not happy.” More
Omega Institute We Are One Mind: An Interview With Larry Dossey
An Interview With Larry Dossey
Omega: Can you explain what the research on prayer and healing shows? How does prayer help heal? Dossey: There are around 30 major controlled clinical trials of distant intercessory prayer, around half of which show statistically significant results—far more than you would expect by chance. Healing studies are also confirmed in nonhumans—plants, animals, microbes, even biochemical reactions—which show that the healing response in humans cannot possibly be attributed only to the placebo response or the power of positive thinking.  More
Omega Institute Being the Part, Feeling the Whole by Mark Nepo
During the last eight months of my father's life, he was in and out of hospitals and rehabilitation centers. I had flown in to see him again. When I arrived, he was sleeping and my brother said he was having a hard day. I sat by his side. When he woke, he didn't know who I was. This had never happened before. More
