Omega Institute Crossing the Abyss From the Mind to the Heart Jack Kornfield
A Daily Practice to Reconnect With Your Feelings
The “Jewel in the Lotus” is the translation of the universal compassion mantra “Om Mani Padme Hum.” While it has many meanings, one explanation of its symbolism is that compassion arises when the jewel of the mind rests in the lotus of the heart. The awakened mind has a diamond-like clarity. When this clear insight rests in the heart’s tender compassion, both dimensions of liberation are fulfilled. More
Omega: In The Master Key, you wrote that “falling in love has more in common with spiritual illumination that we might think. The difference is that in one case, we awaken alone and in the other, we awaken in mutuality.” But you said that mutual awakening isn't easy. Why do our romantic relationships “feel like heaven in the beginning but then a voyage into hell”? What can we do to keep our relationships healthy and happy for the long term? More
Omega Institute Loving Without Judgement
An Imago Approach to Relationships
While the beginning of a relationship can bring excitement, late-night talks, and fun dates, many long-term couples struggle with frustration, tension, and even pain as time goes on. That’s because we tend to choose partners who mirror to us the exact places we need to grow, according to Harville Hendrix, a clinical pastoral counselor known for his best-selling book Getting the Love You Want.  More

Omega Institute Seeing Through the Dark by Caroline Myss
On Being a Medical IntuitiveWhen I was a kid, I would do readings on houses. When we were driving around I would say to my mom, “You know what that house looks like inside? The people in there are happy, and the people in that house are not happy.” More
Omega Institute Being the Part, Feeling the Whole by Mark Nepo
During the last eight months of my father's life, he was in and out of hospitals and rehabilitation centers. I had flown in to see him again. When I arrived, he was sleeping and my brother said he was having a hard day. I sat by his side. When he woke, he didn't know who I was. This had never happened before. More
Omega Institute A Closer Look at Constellations by Bert Hellinger
An Interview With Bert Hellinger
Martin: First, a question concerning the expression coined by you, “the orders of love.” What does this mean? Bert: Order is that according to which something develops. A tree for instance develops according to an order. Otherwise it will not be a tree any longer. And yet every tree is different. Order isn’t something static. It is a living principle. Love, of course, means here the relationship between humans. It also succeeds according to certain orders. When we know about these orders, our relationships succeed better. More
Omega Institute A Camp Where Introverts Can Thrive
When I was approaching seventh grade, I realized I was an introvert. That summer, Omega Teen Camp (OTC) helped me find the social and outgoing part of myself and embrace it. OTC is a warm, open, and welcoming place. That made it really easy for me to just go up to someone and say, “Hi.” There's no reason for pretense. There are no charades—you meet other campers and counselors and they’re not afraid to be exactly who they are. Some of my closest friends, to this day, are people I met at camp. More
