Omega Institute The Art of Presence in Relationships by Kate Feldman and Joel Feldman
The acronym P.R.E.S.E.N.C.E. grew out of the core body of work that we teach couples through our workshop curriculum as well as the couples’ work we do in our therapy offices and in our private intensive retreats. Its focus has to do with how each person in a partnership can grow to be the best person they can be. It’s a set of practices for the individual to become more present, more alive, and more fully themselves. This is what we believe creates the most passionate, fulfilling, and mature adult relationship. The practices are not easy. More
Omega Institute Moving Through Grief by Ana Forrest
Holding on to anger, fear, or resentment can cause physical pain, but when we heal our emotional pain, our physical pain often subsides. The emotions need to be in motion in order for us to be healthy. We've got to move them and feel them and let them express themselves. More
Omega Institute Relationships as a Soul Journey by James Van Praagh
Relationships: I am attracted to those people who serve my higher good. In this three-dimensional world in which we live, there is a sense that we are separate from one another and also that we meet by chance. This is an illusion. The people in our lives are drawn to us and are here for a reason. It is through sharing experiences and having relationships with others that we begin to understand ourselves.  More
Omega Institute Embrace Life at Every Stage
In 1900, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years old. The U.S. Census Bureau now predicts that by 2020 the average life expectancy will be close to 80 years old, and many people will live beyond that. While life spans are increasing, there is an ever-growing media culture that seems obsessed with anti-aging, as evidenced by the growing promotion of anti-aging creams and diets, and attention to celebrities who “defy” their age.

Jane Fonda on How to Thrive Past Midlife
Oscar winning-actress and activist Jane Fonda says the “third act,” those extra 30 years past midlife, is not just a footnote. In this talk filmed at TEDx Women, she likens these years to a staircase. Jokingly, she admits that while it may seem like getting older makes it harder to climb stairs, she points out that our human spirit continues to climb upward even while the body might be declining.

Omega Institute Sharing Memories of Place: Creating a New Family Tradition
Creating a New Family Tradition
Land has memory. Just walking along a road you can often see the remaining marks of past land use. Here in the Northeast you can see the patterns of agriculture in stone walls, once boundaries of fields and property, now running through woodlands—an impression of past economy and past society. Recalling with a critical and cataloging eye the landscapes of our youth, as well as the current landscapes we live in, can be a useful tool to assess the natural world and to help ground us in it.
