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.

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 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
