Yoga, Purpose & Action Intensive

Intensive Price Tiers: One of the ways Off the Mat stands for equality and access for all is by creating a pricing tier structure that invites participants to pay based on their income level. This way, people who can pay more “pay it forward” by supporting those who can’t. Please consider what is truly sustainable for you, and choose a price that feels in integrity: $1,200 Supporter (support other leaders as well as yourself); $950 Sustainer (pays for you); $650 Community (discounted fee).

To register, please call 877.944.2002.

Embark on a transformational journey of provocative self-inquiry and creative exploration to uncover your deepest passion and motivation for service that leads to embodied, effective, and conscious action.

Everyday Zen for Transformation
There is no doubt in my mind that Buddhism is a religion. It has rituals, traditions, schools, and hierarchical structures. However, Buddhist philosophy, in its purest form, is just a set of principles to help you become awake to the life that you have so that you can live it more completely. If we go back to the original ideas and strip away the extras, if we take the “ism” out of what a brother named Buddha taught, then it's no more and no less than a way of planning your life. More
Omega Institute What Are Liberating Structures? Creating a Culture of Innovation
Creating a Culture of Innovation
Earlier this year a poll showed 17 percent of employees would prefer watching paint dry to attending another meeting. Eight percent would prefer to get a root canal. Nearly half of respondents said they’d like to do anything other than sitting in your standard business check-in. More
Omega Institute The Do Cool Sh*t Guide to Volunteering
Giving back and volunteering is one of those things that most of us rarely think about unless there is a disaster in our backyard—like 9/11 or Hurricane Sandy. In those instances, the entire city of New York came together and became a community of people helping people. They didn’t ask for anything back; they simply gave to others and the city was closer than ever. More
Omega Institute A New Twist to Networking
Move over stuffy hotel conference rooms and name tags. 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. One of these events is called Daybreaker, which is self-described as “a morning movement that will start your day off unlike anything else.” More
Omega Institute Social Visionaries Conference to Practice Crowdfunding in Real Time

How We Create Lasting Change, Part 1
A Tale of Two Oil Spills The Deepwater Horizon oil spill from the Macondo well in the Gulf of Mexico started on April 22, 2010. By the time oil stopped flowing, nearly five months later, an area the size of Oklahoma was damaged by the oil and chemicals used to disperse it. More
Omega Institute The Power of Unplugging
Why You May Want to Try a "Digital Detox"
If you are interested in being more productive at work, having better relationships, sleeping soundly, and having a slimmer waistline, it might be time to unplug. Research now confirms what many of us suspected—the convenience of our mobile devices comes with an energy-draining price. The good news is we can reclaim our energy by unplugging, whether it be for a few hours before bed, the whole weekend, or longer. More
Omega Institute Sustaining Your Passion
Passion is an ongoing, living process that needs to be reignited on a regular basis. Not surprisingly, most of the elements that sustain passion are precisely the same ongoing practices that sustain quality of life in general. In particular, there are five practices I can describe that will help you sustain passion, regardless of your environment.  Engage in a Spiritual Practice More
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. You’re going to have to be able to rely on your own ability to find calm, to find peace, to find contentment in trying circumstances, both during the long journey and once we get there. More
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
