Omega Institute Bring More Mindfulness to Your Writing
Writing is a practice that requires both focus and imagination. Writers must paint details on the page that translate abstract ideas from their mind into readable stories and content. Poet Robert Bly once said, “If we want to create art we have to stitch together the inner world and the outer world.” Mindfulness, which is defined as paying attention to our moment-to-moment experience with nonjudgmental awareness, can do just that. More
Omega Institute Sustaining Your Passion
Passion is an ongoing, living process that needs to be reignited on a regular basis. Not surprisingly, most of the elements that sustain passion are precisely the same ongoing practices that sustain quality of life in general. In particular, there are five practices I can describe that will help you sustain passion, regardless of your environment.  Engage in a Spiritual Practice More
Omega Institute Mindful Eating Offers Hope to Diabetics & Binge Eaters
Mindful eating is a practice, not a diet. It doesn't offer recipes, menu plans, or lists of allowed and restricted foods. Instead, it asks you to use all your senses, take breaths between bites, and bring more awareness to the process of eating. More
Omega Institute Parenthood Is a River of Worry & Love By Elizabeth Lesser
If you would like to be broken open—if you want to pursue a Phoenix Process of the highest order—I would recommend raising children. Parenthood is a clumsy yet majestic dance in the flames. When you parent you fall in love with a person who is always changing into someone else, and whom you know will leave you. Yet most parents will say that they have never given themselves to anyone as fully as they have to their children. Parenting is a career with the crazy-making job requirement of simultaneously surrendering to and letting go of someone you love, over and over and over again. More

Omega Institute 3 Ways to Stress Relief
Chronic stress has a major impact on our health, contributing to conditions like anxiety, insomnia, obesity, weakened immune system, heart disease, and more. We asked three Omega teachers for their best tips for recognizing and managing stress. The Naturopathic Doctor One of the first things to do is connect to your breath. If you're a shallow breather, spend a few minutes feeling what it’s like to breath into your belly. This will allow your parasympathetic nervous system to relax. More
Omega Institute Make Self-Care a Habit
A habit is a behavior that’s wired into our brains so well that we perform it without thinking. It's automatic. Neuroscientists at MIT have recently found a key that gives us a little advantage in determining which habits will prevail in our daily life. More
Omega Institute 4 Stages of Consciousness by Pam Grout
We live in a multidimensional universe and there are dozens of different levels of consciousness, oftentimes residing in one person. I’ve broken it down into four major consciousness categories. Each of these levels has dozens of subsets, all that play out in different ways in our lives. Let’s just say that my goal is to move closer to level four. More
Planting Seeds of Well-Being
The days have been getting longer, more light hinting of spring's approach until it’s 7:00 p.m. and still light out. The nose detects spring, often before the eyes. Even with snow still on the ground it’s possible to smell the shift happening. The scent is watery, plantish, earthy. Some days you can even feel spring in the depths of your being, a subtle nostalgia or déjà vu. We’ve been here before, in this time between seasons.  More
