A leading exponent of teachings on meditation and how they apply to everyday life, Pema Chödrön is widely known for her insightful, down-to-earth interpretation of Tibetan Buddhism for Western audiences.

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
Omega Institute Embrace Life at Every Stage
In 1900, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years old. The U.S. Census Bureau now predicts that by 2020 the average life expectancy will be close to 80 years old, and many people will live beyond that. While life spans are increasing, there is an ever-growing media culture that seems obsessed with anti-aging, as evidenced by the growing promotion of anti-aging creams and diets, and attention to celebrities who “defy” their age.

Omega Institute Ready for Your Third Act? Jane Fonda on How to Thrive Past Midlife
Jane Fonda on How to Thrive Past Midlife
Oscar winning-actress and activist Jane Fonda says the “third act,” those extra 30 years past midlife, is not just a footnote. In this talk filmed at TEDx Women, she likens these years to a staircase. Jokingly, she admits that while it may seem like getting older makes it harder to climb stairs, she points out that our human spirit continues to climb upward even while the body might be declining.

Present Yourself Fearlessly by Elizabeth Gilbert
My advice is just usually my mom's good advice recycled. I feel more comfortable just redispensing her advice because I know it came from her Grandma. I know it's been tested, it's got deep legs. It's a home remedy. We know how to make apple butter. I'm not doing your new fangled fancy culinary molecular advice here, this is advice you know grandma to grandma to granddaughter to granddaughter that got passed on. More
On my short to-do list of book projects, I have a concept for one called Know When You Don't Know: A Guide to Investigative Reporting and Life. The little joke in there is that life is kind of like an investigative reporting project. It always was one, but in our current environment of information overwhelm, awareness is indispensable. More
Omega Institute Mantra Meditation 101
What: Practiced in a variety of spiritual traditions, mantra meditation is the act of silently or audibly repeating a mantra—a special word, thought, or phrase—either in an ancient, sacred language, or in your native tongue. More
Omega Institute The Future in the Rearview Mirror by Sam Keen
Soren Kierkegaard said, “Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.” How can we turn a vague longing for renewal into a specific vision of a new way forward? It is not an easy thing to be reborn. The problem, as Marshall McLuhan said, is “we drive into the future using only our rearview mirror.” In childhood our rearview mirror contained very little, but by the time we reach middle age our past experience and present expectations begin to solidify and form our character. Our waistlines begin to expand and our opinions contract. More
Omega Institute Awakening to the Kindness of Others by Nawang Khechog
Because of so many different people’s kindness, we are able to achieve great things and even find happiness. Unfortunately, we often forget this and don't spend enough time reflecting on other’s kindness and how we benefit from it. We are constantly nurtured by each other’s kindness. It’s actually easy to begin to truly appreciate the kindness of others if we think about something as simple as the food and drink that is digesting in our stomachs right now, giving us energy and health. So many people were involved in the making of those things. More
Omega Institute Secrets of Master Yogis
Yoga can be practiced by anyone, at any age. It helps young and old build strength, find balance, and stay flexible through low-impact movement. B.K.S Iyengar, one of the world’s most well-known yoga masters passed away in 2014, just shy of his 97th birthday. He started life with a frail and sick body but grew to be able to hold conversations while standing on his head, a level of vitality he attributed to yoga.  More
