Omega Institute Can Contemplative Practice Teach Us to Think Better by Daniel P. Barbezat and Mirabai Bush
One of the claims of higher education, and particularly of liberal arts colleges, is that we teach students how to think. What does this actually mean? Surely our students can think, so in what sense do they need to be taught to think? Maybe it means that we aid them in developing their analytical problem-solving skills and their ability to integrate different aspects of situations creatively. Certainly one of the goals of contemplative exercises is to develop these skills. More
Omega Institute Compassion in Action by Ram Dass
Compassion in action is paradoxical and mysterious. It is absolute, yet continually changing. It accepts that everything is happening exactly as it should, and it works with a full-hearted commitment to change. More
Omega Institute 7 Billion Minds or One by Larry Dossey
"I felt there was no separation between anything. I felt as if I were united with everything, and it was wonderful!" This recent report from a reader is a universal experience of people who are concerned with psychological and spiritual growth. This sense of connectedness is not fantasy, but is being affirmed by recent advances in consciousness research. More
Omega Institute Why Giving Makes Us Feel Good
If you ask most people why they give money to charity or volunteer their time, the answer is probably because they want to make a difference in their community or in the world. But research is finding that our brains' pleasure circuits become activated when we give—meaning that besides doing good, donating our money or time actually makes us feel good. More
Omega Institute The Spiritual Mystery That We Are by Adyashanti
Whoever Jesus may or may not have been historically, he symbolizes the spiritual mystery of each one of us. We are all divine being manifesting as human being. Jesus represents that radiance of divine being, that felt sense of eternity within us all. When we look back over the arc of our lives, from the time we were born to the present moment, each of us can touch upon that intuition that there’s something about us that is unchanged. Throughout all of the ups and downs and changes of life, something is now as it ever was. More
Mindfulness does not belong to Christianity, Buddhism, or Taoism, just as the breath we inhale and exhale does not belong to any one of us. Everywhere human beings have lived, we have needed to cultivate attention; whether it was for hunting, fashioning tools or clothes, or intellectual pursuits. We have always needed compassion to live in harmony and enjoy our lives. Humans from every culture have developed wisdom to ask the big questions of life. These universal practices have been cultivated throughout millennia—or, we may say, they have cultivated us. More
Omega Institute What Is Kirtan? by Ram Dass
The Names of God or praises of God can be sung as well as spoken. Often, when your heart wells up, singing alone expresses the fullness of your love for God. As you sing the Name repeatedly, the rhythm and melody fan your emotions. If this ecstasy is heightened, distinctions begin to fall away until only love, only the beloved, remain. More

Omega Institute Navigating Our Differences by Daniel P. Barbezat and Mirabai Bush
One of the great advances in higher education over the past 50 years has been the increase in variation among students, faculty, administration, and staff. This has deepened the learning within classrooms, greatly enriched both our institutions and our society, and given opportunities to a far greater number of people than ever before. We believe it is important to stress “variation” rather than “diversity” because as difference (diversity) rises, we need to keep a focus on our common connection (variation). We acknowledge difference and also hold our commonality. More
