It is not enough that a writer places the best words side by side, or generates lovely images and expressive metaphors. The real art of writing is how we see, and how far we can dip into the deeper levels of knowing.

Present Yourself Fearlessly by Elizabeth Gilbert
My advice is just usually my mom's good advice recycled. I feel more comfortable just redispensing her advice because I know it came from her Grandma. I know it's been tested, it's got deep legs. It's a home remedy. We know how to make apple butter. I'm not doing your new fangled fancy culinary molecular advice here, this is advice you know grandma to grandma to granddaughter to granddaughter that got passed on. More
On my short to-do list of book projects, I have a concept for one called Know When You Don't Know: A Guide to Investigative Reporting and Life. The little joke in there is that life is kind of like an investigative reporting project. It always was one, but in our current environment of information overwhelm, awareness is indispensable. More
Omega Institute Mantra Meditation 101
What: Practiced in a variety of spiritual traditions, mantra meditation is the act of silently or audibly repeating a mantra—a special word, thought, or phrase—either in an ancient, sacred language, or in your native tongue. More
Omega Institute The Future in the Rearview Mirror by Sam Keen
Soren Kierkegaard said, “Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.” How can we turn a vague longing for renewal into a specific vision of a new way forward? It is not an easy thing to be reborn. The problem, as Marshall McLuhan said, is “we drive into the future using only our rearview mirror.” In childhood our rearview mirror contained very little, but by the time we reach middle age our past experience and present expectations begin to solidify and form our character. Our waistlines begin to expand and our opinions contract. More
Omega Institute Awakening to the Kindness of Others by Nawang Khechog
Because of so many different people’s kindness, we are able to achieve great things and even find happiness. Unfortunately, we often forget this and don't spend enough time reflecting on other’s kindness and how we benefit from it. We are constantly nurtured by each other’s kindness. It’s actually easy to begin to truly appreciate the kindness of others if we think about something as simple as the food and drink that is digesting in our stomachs right now, giving us energy and health. So many people were involved in the making of those things. More
Omega Institute Secrets of Master Yogis
Yoga can be practiced by anyone, at any age. It helps young and old build strength, find balance, and stay flexible through low-impact movement. B.K.S Iyengar, one of the world’s most well-known yoga masters passed away in 2014, just shy of his 97th birthday. He started life with a frail and sick body but grew to be able to hold conversations while standing on his head, a level of vitality he attributed to yoga.  More
Omega Institute The Role of the Modern Elder
In traditional Native American cultures, as people age and become elders, it becomes their responsibility to pass along their life experience and wisdom to younger generations. And in return, members of the tribe collectively care for their elders. Today in the United States, more than 76 million baby boomers are creating a shift in the age composition of our population. Experts say people aged 65 and older will make up more than 20 percent of the population by 2029. More
Connect to Your Inner Wisdom: An Interview With Barry Michels and Phil Stutz
An Interview With Barry Michels and Phil Stutz
Omega: How did you come up with the Tools? Phil: I actually developed the tools out of frustration. Back in the late 1970s and early 1980s, I was frustrated with psychotherapy. It dealt with the causes of people’s problems, but it didn’t help so much where the rubber meets the road. More
