Finding the Universality in Our Experience of Tradition
Children are inherently drawn to celebrations. They serve as a momentous break from routine and a vehicle for transcending the dull and mundane in exchange for a fleeting visit to a world of pageantry and festivity. While children may not absorb all of the finer points of the epistemological nature of such holidays and celebrations, if it feels festive and mirthful, they are likely happy participants. Most children haven't met a festive holiday they didn’t like. More
Omega Institute The Question of Being by Adyashanti
Above the entrance to the Oracle at Delphi were written the words, “Know Thyself.” Jesus came along and added a sense of urgency and consequence to the ancient idea when he said, “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.” More

Finding Meaning in a Season of Celebration
If you look at your calendar on any given month, you will find a number of religious holidays. March has everything from the beginning of Lent (a Christian holiday) to Naw Ruz (a Baha’i holiday) and April has more than a dozen religious holidays. However, in the West, we think of the "holiday season” as, not so much a season, but the month of December. December anchors the year with the blockbuster holidays of Christmas and Hanukkah, along with Kwanzaa and Las Posadas. It is a time of cheer, excitement, and gatherings, both familial and communal.

Omega Institute Staying Grounded With a Spiritual Practice by Ram Dass
Most of us are enmeshed in the world, and we get lost very easily in the stuff of life. A daily practice is very useful to keep reminding you, to keep pulling you back and waking you up again, giving you a chance to see how you got lost the day before, and to keep putting what's happening to you in the world back into a spiritual perspective.

Omega Institute Deciding to Go Solo For the Holidays
Ram Dass said it best, “If you think you are truly enlightened, go spend a weekend with your parents.” Many people might extend this sentiment to the holidays. While some see it as a time to gather and celebrate with community and family, others might feel a desire to catch up on much-needed downtime and just be alone. More
Omega Institute Walking Meditation for Kids by Jennifer Cohen Harper
Walking Meditation is a grounding and steadying mindfulness activity that gives your child access to something that she can do anytime and anyplace when she needs to tune in to her own body and mind. It is a simple but supportive practice. The repetitive movement is soothing, and for many children the movement helps to quiet their minds. This is best done without shoes on.   More

4 Ways Women Can Reduce Holiday Stress
Holiday stress seems about as traditional these days as cookie exchanges and tree trimming. Women in particular tend to have full plates all year, but especially during this end-of-year rush. More
Exploring Scorpio Eclipse Conjunct Saturn
November 2013 is upon us, and we are upon it—and it is clearly the most interesting month of 2013 astrology. I would say "so far," but this astrology takes us through the end of the year, when a whole phase of history begins with the Capricorn New Moon on New Year's Day.   More
