Omega Institute Twin Healing Traditions: A History of Medicine & Religion by Harold G. Koenig
A History of Medicine & Religion
Many today might think that religion and medicine are two very different endeavors, that the mere suggestion that religion is relevant to health and health care is something new and different. However, this is not true.  What is new and different is the distinct separation of religion from medicine, a relatively recent phenomenon in the United States and that, in some countries, has still not occurred.

Omega_Institute_Everybody_Is_a_Gold_Mine_by_Robert Peng
An Interview With Robert Peng
Omega: What inspired you to start studying with your spiritual master, Xiao Yao, at such a young age? Robert: When I was eight, I developed a serious heart condition and the doctor couldn’t help. He said, “You have to quit school and stay home to rest,” but that was boring, so within a few days I snuck out of my building and into a nearby hotel. Inside, I found a boiler room where I liked to watch the fire. My master was the boiler attendant. He was such a nice person and a wonderful storyteller. I returned again and again.  More

Omega Institute Healing Pain Begins With Breaking Old Patterns by Ana Forrest
We are intensely habitual creatures, and many of our habits don't serve us. Most of us have pain because we've fallen into bad patterns: physical, emotional, and spiritual ones. To heal pain, we need to break those patterns, which can be surprisingly challenging. Don't believe me? Try this: clasp your hands. Look at which thumb and forefinger are on top. Now, interlace your fingers again with the other thumb and forefinger on top. That weird, awkward, uncomfortable feeling? It's called change. And it's hard. More
Omega Institute A New Vision for Veterans Care by Laurie Leitch and Elaine Miller-Karas
Statistics measuring the effects of wartime service on our troops reveal high rates of drug and alcohol abuse, homelessness, homicide, suicide, divorce, depression, traumatic brain injury, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
