Dynamic and inspiring spiritual teacher, Adyashanti reveals that as you become more conscious, the desire to be of service becomes a natural instinct.

Omega Institute In Service of Sustainability: Developing a Practice of Caring for Others & the Earth
Developing a Practice of Caring for Others & the Earth
It seems that all religions include teachings on how to be of service to the world and how to care for each other. For Hindus, karma yoga is the yoga of action and selfless service. Christians are encouraged to love one another and bear each others' burdens (Galatians 6:2). Muslims have the concept of īthār, or "preferring others to oneself." The Torah instructs Jews to love their neighbors (Leviticus 19:18). The Dalai Lama, a voice for the global Buddhist community, says, "My religion in kindness." What does this have to do with sustainability? Everything. More
Omega Institute Take a Stand In Your Life By Sitting Down to Meditate by Jon Kabat-Zinn
In its outward manifestation, meditation appears to involve either stopping, by parking the body in stillness that suspends activity, or giving oneself over to flowing movement. In either case, it is an embodiment of wise attention, an inward gesture undertaken for the most part in silence, a shift from doing to simply being. It is an act that may at first seem artificial but that we soon discover, if we keep at it, is ultimately one of pure love for the life unfolding within us and around us. More
Omega Institute Practicing The Work at Work by Byron Katie
“My boss just doesn't appreciate me,” is a common complaint heard in many offices across the country. Recent research from Gallup has found that less than one in three Americans receive praise from their work supervisor, and employees who say they have not been recognized at work are more likely to quit in the next year.

Omega Institute Preparing for a Silent Retreat
Whether you are looking to take a break from your overly scheduled life or go deeper into your spiritual practice, a silent retreat or workshop is a great place to get still and renew your body, mind, and spirit.  More
Omega Institute Moving Meditation 101
What: Moving meditation allows you to turn any form of conscious movement into a sacred body prayer. Some people use the practice to express themselves and experience the present moment, while others set an intention to communicate or connect with nature or the divine. More
Omega Institute Koans: One With the Question by Melissa Myozen Blacker
One With the Question
Koans represent the sayings and doings of Zen masters and their friends and students, as collected many centuries ago. Koan (Japanese) literally means "public case" (as in a legal precedent), and these ancient cases continue to have relevance for modern dharma students, illustrating what it might mean to live free from repetitive dualistic patterns of thinking and behaving. More
Omega Institute GPS of the Mind by Sylvia Boorstein
The GPS in my car never gets mad at me, no matter how many times I turn to avoid the torn-up street she has recommended. She just says, "Recalculating,” and directs me to turn right, and then right again, until I am back where she wanted me—on the street blocked by construction. More
Omega Institute The Natural Liberation of Habits by Tsoknyi Rinpoche
The ultimate habitual pattern is samsara itself—the wheel of habitual cyclic existence that causes all your suffering. The karma that drives the wheel—the three poisons of attachment, aggression, and ignorance—are actually deep-seated habits of mind. When you finally get tired of unconsciously participating in the daily show of habitual samsaric programming, what can you do to change it? Buddhism teaches three basic ways to cut your ties to samsara, once you have decided this is something you really need and want to do. More
