Omega Institute Finding Meaning & Purpose at Work
Lessons From the Bhagavad Gita
Written in approximately 200 C.E., the Bhagavad Gita unfolds as a dialogue between a warrior prince named Arjuna and Lord Krishna, who serves as his spiritual guide and charioteer as Arjuna prepares to fight against his own kinsmen to reclaim his kingdom’s throne. Along the way, Krishna and Arjuna discuss the various paths of yoga; the laws of karma; personal dharma; and the purpose of life. Here is Krishna’s advice for finding (and doing) work that really matters in the world, as interpreted by three spiritual teachers: Ram Dass, Sally Kempton, and the late Eknath Easwaran. More

An Interview With Ana Forrest
Omega: You’ve written that “our bodies archive our life experiences and often tell the stories of our deepest fears.” How, exactly, do they “tell” those stories and how can we release or heal the fears associated with them? More
Omega Institute What They Don't Tell You Before Yoga Teacher Training by Jay Fields
Perhaps you’ve had a similar experience to mine: you stumbled upon yoga, got hooked, and it changed your life for the better—so much that you decided you’d become a yoga teacher. “If practicing yoga makes me feel this peaceful, happy, and together," you thought, “imagine what teaching yoga would feel like!” And thus, shining inwardly as you imagined all the students whose lives you would transform through your teaching, you gleefully signed up for teacher training.

Omega Institute The Yoga of Self-Mastery by Mandy Ingber
What is it to have self-mastery? I find myself asking this question often. It is a theme in many aspects of my life. Ultimately, self-responsibility and having mastery over our own actions, thoughts, and words may change and transform our lives and ourselves for the better. In my case, it’s what I do not do that aids in this process. In the yoga of self-mastery, I restrict my negative actions or discard what is not useful. It is a paring down and a resculpting. I eliminate what is unnecessary to reveal the truth in a purer way.

Omega_Institute_Feel_Your_Fear_Find_Your_Power_by_Ana_Forrest
Omega: When you choose to opt out of suffering, how does it change you and the way you experience life? Ana: Instead of choosing suffering, I choose to live my life in a way that makes me proud of myself. I choose actions that brighten, instead of dim, my Spirit. I stalk and hunt my damaging behaviors and retrain them, just like teaching a horse or student to retrain bad habits. Then, I refocus my actions to align with my Spirit pledge of doing my part in mending the Hoop of the People. More
