Transform Self-Judgment Into Compassion for Living Fully

We often treat others with kindness and compassion. But how do we treat ourself? Much of the criticism, judgment, and blame we hear every day comes from our worst enemy: ourself.

Omega Institute Living an Engaged Life: An Interview With Tara Brach, Part 1
An Interview With Tara Brach, Part 1
Omega: What motivated you to begin meditating? Tara: There were two reasons. First, I had the sense I needed to improve myself. I thought meditation would diminish the parts of me I didn’t like and I'd become a more perfect and awake person. I don't know where I got that idea, but I worked really hard at it. I would go to different teachers and they would say, "Just relax, it's okay," but I would then take that on as the next way to improve myself. More
Omega Institute How to Embrace Presence in Body & Mind: An Interview With Tara Brach, Part 2
An Interview With Tara Brach, Part 2
Omega: We seem to have an uneasy relationship with the body in Western culture. We are especially averse to pain, discomfort, and aging. How can we learn to be more at home in the body no matter our physical condition? More
Omega Institute Hope, Connection & Survival in the Wild by Les Stroud
As a young boy I played outside my cottage in the forest, pretending to survive. I made pillows out of moss and put branches up for crude shelter roofs. I talked to trees and bugs and animals. It was my escape. My refuge from a mediocre life in suburbia. I dreamed of being like Jacques Cousteau. I dreamed of being like Tarzan. And, lo and behold, what is Survivorman if not the perfect hybrid of those two dreams? But in the adult world of television production, my reason for those dreams—connecting to nature—disappeared into the din of business, money, and schedules.  More
Omega Institute A New Twist to Networking
Move over stuffy hotel conference rooms and name tags. If you want to make connections for your business, it’s time to dance—at 7:00 a.m. A new wave of networking is taking hold, and it has nothing to do with stale bagels or power suits. One of these events is called Daybreaker, which is self-described as “a morning movement that will start your day off unlike anything else.” More
Omega Institute Energy Meditation 101
What: In energy meditation, you focus your attention on a subtle energy (like chi or prana), or on a subtle energy center (like the chakras). More
Omega Institute The Power of Unplugging
Why You May Want to Try a "Digital Detox"
If you are interested in being more productive at work, having better relationships, sleeping soundly, and having a slimmer waistline, it might be time to unplug. Research now confirms what many of us suspected—the convenience of our mobile devices comes with an energy-draining price. The good news is we can reclaim our energy by unplugging, whether it be for a few hours before bed, the whole weekend, or longer. More
Omega Institute 6 Affirmations of Personal Freedom By Paul Williams & Tracey Jackson
The six affirmations we offer are useless if you don’t employ them vigorously and often. At best, they’ll become lovely little sayings worthy of a needlepoint pillow. To make them effective tools in reconstructing the way you live your life, you’ll need to make them as much a part of your day as your toothbrush, razor, or morning run. More
The translator was laughing so hard he could not speak. He seemed to have heard the funniest thing in his life. We were all waiting for the English version of what Ogyen Trinley Dorje, the Tibetan Buddhist leader known as the 17th Karmapa, had said. The monastery up in Woodstock, New York, is the Karmapa's North American base. He was here on his second visit to the U.S. on April 18. The translator, Lama Yeshe Gyamtso, tried to compose himself, but without much success. He finally seemed to find his center, then after taking about two breaths, he burst into laughter again. More
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
