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

By afternoon I had come to a rockslide and stopped. I looked up the mountain and followed the slide with my eyes all the way down. More
Omega Institute Diaries, Journals & Memoirs by Frances Lefkowitz
“You seem so... fine,” a woman tells me after my bookstore reading, a stunned look on her face. The girl she’d read about in my memoir got into a car with a stranger at age 8, dropped acid at 12, and got evicted with her family twice before she was 13—and she had all the anger, despair, and attitude to prove it. Now here I was, all grown up, and doing fine. When people who’ve read my memoir meet me in person, they often get that stunned look. And then, in the Q&A after the reading, they ask, “Was writing your memoir therapeutic?” More
