Continuing Education

Earn CEs * Gain New Skills * Enliven Your Work * Receive Certification * Begin a New Career

Thousands of people come to Omega each year to further their professional development. Some take workshops that offer continuing education credit. Others seek to become certified in an area of personal or professional interest. Others use noncertificate workshops to bring new skills into their work and to meet others in their field. And many people have started new careers from the inspiration and training they received in an Omega program.

If you are looking to bring new life into your career—whether you are in business, the helping professions, education, or a nonprofit organization—many of our workshops can serve your needs. Browse through the catalog for workshops that you believe will help you become a better employee, manager, business owner, or helping professional. Speak to your employer: Many companies offer their employees assistance in advanced training. Even if a workshop is not directly related to your specific field, your employer may want to support you in your quest for self-improvement.

Unlike many other continuing education programs and professional trainings elsewhere, Omega features:

Innovation: We offer many unique workshops, conferences, and trainings that introduce innovative ideas not normally found in other career development programs. You leave these workshops with practical methods for improving your personal life that you can share with your colleagues, clients, friends, and family.

Immersion: Learning at Omega is focused, hands-on, and in-depth, and is strengthened by the peace and beauty of the campus. You can learn more in a shorter time at an Omega workshop than you can at many semester-long trainings.

Community: Being around an excellent faculty and like-minded friends and colleagues in an informal and inspired setting supports your quest for expansion and excellence.

Upcoming Workshops

05/02/2014 to 05/04/2014
The Techniques of Shamanic Ecstasy

We live in a dream and wake up only to find ourselves in another dream. The shaman learns to dream with his eyes open, to conjure the world into being each day. This is the practice of shamanic ecstasy.

05/02/2014 to 05/04/2014
Developing a Calm & Clear Mind

Insight Meditation, also known as Vipassana Meditation, is a simple technique that originated in the Buddha’s teachings more than 2,500 years ago.

A Path of Awakening

When our lives are touched by traumatic events, we often resist or deny how we feel, trying as much as possible to be “normal.” But the struggle to be “normal” is counterproductive.

05/09/2014 to 05/16/2014
7-Day Weeklong Retreat

Are you living your life on autopilot and need help to push that reset button?
