If you want to make connections for your business, it’s time to dance—at 7:00 a.m. A new wave of networking is taking hold, and it has nothing to do with stale bagels or power suits.

Omega Institute Omega Participant Hopes to Go to Mars
Omega: You have training in yoga and meditation and you studied permaculture through the Omega Center for Sustainable Living's Ecological Literacy Immersion Program (ELIP). How do you think these skills will be useful in space? Cumming: As far as I’m concerned, meditation skills are going to be a requirement.

Omega Institute Deepen Your Relationships With Nonviolent Communication
Remember playing "telephone" as a kid? It's the game where one person whispers a phrase to someone else, and it gets whispered down a line of children until the last one says the phrase out loud and everyone laughs at how much it has changed.  Sometimes relationships can feel like we're stuck in that game. You say one thing, but your partner hears something completely different. Your boss gives you feedback, but all you can hear is criticism. You try to express your feelings, but you just sound mean and petty. More

One institution is for the participants and one institution is for the staff, and they are coming to a school for their spiritual development. Wow! More
