Omega Institute Eating Meditation 101
What: Eating meditation is the art of mindfully chewing and swallowing each bite of your food. As Buddhist teacher Jack Kornfield writes in Meditation for Beginners, “the only real rule is that you really pay attention to what you eat.” More
Omega Institute 2 Relationships That Impact Your Healthh by Joe Cross
Why is it that everyone seems to know the right thing to do when it comes to healthy eating, yet so few practice it? Even more importantly, why is it that so many people who have experienced the joy and liberation of healthy living end up sliding back? If you ask me what big, overarching lessons I’ve learned, I would say that whether you succeed or not comes down to two relationships: 1. The relationship you have with yourself. 2. The relationship you have with plants. More
Omega Institute What Is Chi? by Mantak Chia
Chi—also known as prana, the warm current, Kundalini power, or the electromagnetic life force—is very difficult to describe because this life energy is invisible and cannot be seen. However, we can feel it. "Chi" is simply the Chinese word for "breath." On the physical level, it is the raw air we breathe in and out, revitalizing us and keeping us alive. Our life hangs by this thin thread of breath every second of our lives, and that thread is seemingly empty air. More

Omega Institute Hope, Connection & Survival in the Wild by Les Stroud
As a young boy I played outside my cottage in the forest, pretending to survive. I made pillows out of moss and put branches up for crude shelter roofs. I talked to trees and bugs and animals. It was my escape. My refuge from a mediocre life in suburbia. I dreamed of being like Jacques Cousteau. I dreamed of being like Tarzan. And, lo and behold, what is Survivorman if not the perfect hybrid of those two dreams? But in the adult world of television production, my reason for those dreams—connecting to nature—disappeared into the din of business, money, and schedules.  More
Omega Institute Energy Meditation 101
