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
Omega Institute Compassion in Action by Ram Dass
Compassion in action is paradoxical and mysterious. It is absolute, yet continually changing. It accepts that everything is happening exactly as it should, and it works with a full-hearted commitment to change. More
Stephanie Coontz
An Interview With Stephanie Coontz
Omega: You say marriage has changed more in the past 30 years than in the past 3,000 years. You’ve said that the very traits that make marriage in our contemporary society more rewarding have also made it less stable. How so? More
Marriage and Gender Equality Today
An Interview With Stephanie Coontz
Omega: You’ve noted that the gains of feminism in achieving gender equality interact in contradictory ways with growing economic inequality. What is the most urgent role of feminism going forward?  More
Omega Institute How Teen Camp Helped Me Cope
When I showed up for Omega Teen Camp at the age of 15, I was overweight and introverted and I didn’t have any friends. I guess you could say I came from a broken home. My parents divorced when I was 12, and after that, my motivation evaporated. I started doing poorly in school. I had serious issues with my father. And I didn’t do the normal things kids do, like go to the park and play ball. Instead, I’d stand on the sidelines or draw or play video games. More
Omega Institute The Science of Mindfulness by Daniel Rechtschaffen
In practicing mindfulness, we can learn to effectively integrate different parts of the brain and mediate internal conflicts. There is a basic neuroscience concept, “Nerve cells that fire together, wire together.” Due to recent findings of neural plasticity, which is the ability for the connections in our brains to change and adapt throughout our lives, we now understand that our brains can generate stronger and healthier neural connections based on our mental habits.
