Omega Institute The Great PTSD Name Debate
In recent years, a debate has been brewing between the U.S. Army, the American Psychiatric Association (APA), and veterans’ and women’s advocates about the pros and cons of the medical term post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. More
Omega Institute Emerging Theories of Consciousness
Philosophers and scientists have pondered the nature of consciousness for centuries. Now more than ever, scientists are adding some pretty interesting theories to the discussion. But is understanding consciousness simply a question of brain physiology and chemistry, or is there something larger at play? Explaining consciousness from a scientific point of view is going to be hard, according to Australian philosopher and cognitive scientist David Chalmers. More

Omega Institute Field Notes from a Katonah Yoga Class
I thought I knew what to expect when I arrived (on time) at Abbie Galvin’s class. I’d read about the Katonah Yoga practice and heard other yogis speak highly about the New York City studio. But as I made my way into the bright, clean room, I wondered if I was in the right place. The room was full of students resting in a deep supported back bend as if they’d been in place for some time. I checked my watch: 10:01 a.m. More

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.
