Omega Institute Seeing the Soul Through Visionary Art: An Interview With Alex Grey and Allyson Grey, Part 1
An Interview with Alex Grey and Allyson Grey, Part 1
Omega: How do you describe visionary art to someone who encounters it for the first time? Alex and Allyson: The visionary artist’s mission is to make the soul perceptible.

To find the visionary realm, we use the intuitive inner eye, the eye of contemplation, the eye of the soul. More
Omega Institute 10 Ayurvedic Practices for Winter by Shiva Rea
Self-Care for the Quiet Season
1. Sneha—oiling the body, nose, and ears in the evening is nourishing and fortifying for the muscles and connective tissues. As our bodies are exposed to cold and wind, our pores and fascia tighten and roughen in response. Oiling the orifices of the head helps the sensory pathways stay balanced. Favor kapha massage oil, ashwagandha-bala oil, or sesame oil.  2. Do dry-brushing a few times a week to invigorate the tissues and move stagnant lymph and blood. More

Omega Institute Soul to Soul at Work by Ram Dass
An Interview With Ram Dass, Part 2
Lois: What do you think is the most important work for organizations like Omega to focus on now? Ram Dass: Compassion! Compassion and making one’s work karma yoga; doing one’s work as a vehicle for getting to God. And that will be wonderful.
