Ditching Diets & Releasing Stress: An Interview With Jon Gabriel
An Interview With Jon Gabriel
Omega: How did you transition from being a chronic dieter to finding a more holistic approach to weight loss and life? Jon: I came to a place of desperation, where I was 400 pounds. I was exhausted. I was stressed out. And life had just given me a second chance: I was almost on one of the planes that crashed on 9/11. I thought to myself, “Here I am killing myself and the universe just gave me a second chance.” More

Omega Institute Standing Meditation 101
What: Standing meditation encourages you to tune into your body—and the present moment—while standing up or holding a specific standing yoga or tai chi pose.

Others may encourage you to focus on your breathing and/or an internal visualization. More

After her struggle with addiction, Nikki Myers founded Yoga of 12-Step Recovery (Y12SR), a relapse-prevention program that integrates yoga with the tools of 12-step programs. Myers says that addictive behaviors can disconnect and separate you—from yourself, your loved ones, and your environment.

Burnout. Compassion fatigue. Secondary traumatic stress. These are terms used to describe the emotional (and physical) drain experienced by many trauma workers.

Caregivers may also experience sleep issues from working too many hours or seeing too many patients. More

Omega Institute Moving Through Grief by Ana Forrest
Holding on to anger, fear, or resentment can cause physical pain, but when we heal our emotional pain, our physical pain often subsides. The emotions need to be in motion in order for us to be healthy. We've got to move them and feel them and let them express themselves. More
Omega Institute Looking for Silence
"There's a great space in which this moment takes place. There's a great silence that is listening to the thoughts," says Adyashanti, a spiritual teacher who leads silent retreats at Omega and elsewhere.  “In the end it’s all very simple. Either we give ourselves to silence or we don’t,” he says. But how can we find silence in the cacophony of our modern world? Cities have always been loud, but noise has now crept into the suburbs, and even the wild, and is nearly impossible to escape.  More
Omega Institute Relationships as a Soul Journey by James Van Praagh
Relationships: I am attracted to those people who serve my higher good. In this three-dimensional world in which we live, there is a sense that we are separate from one another and also that we meet by chance. This is an illusion. The people in our lives are drawn to us and are here for a reason. It is through sharing experiences and having relationships with others that we begin to understand ourselves.  More
