Can we reason with an upset mind? Mindfulness requires brain and emotional regulation, as Bessel van der Kolk explains, and these skills can be taught young.   As a matter of fact, research shows that when learned at young ages, these practices decrease stress, attention deficit issues, depression, anxiety, and hostility in children, while also benefiting their health, well-being, social relations, and academic performance, as well as setting them on the road to be happier adults.     More

Omega Institute Studies Confirm Benefits of Energy Psychology
A leading mind-body healing approach, energy psychology bypasses conversation and focuses on visualization, breathing, tapping, and saying simple phrases out loud. Scientific research shows that energy psychology is an effective way to regulate the nervous system, activate healthy genes, and stimulate neurons in the brain to help heal trauma and more.  More
Omega Institute What You're Feeling Influences Your Genes by Dawson Church
Researchers have now published a sizeable number of reviews of studies that show a link between emotional states and genes. They have examined the correlations between emotional disturbances—such as schizophrenia, depression, panic, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)—and gene expression, especially in the brain. They have come up with startling and compelling evidence that the patterns of gene expression in the brains of these unhappy sufferers are different from those of happier people. More
Omega Institute A Classic Mindfulness Meditation Practice by Michael Bernard Beckwith
In a society where doingness is more encouraged and awarded than beingness, it can be challenging to grasp that in “inaction” there is a great deal of “action” taking place. The slogan of the restless mind is: “Don’t just sit there; do something”; the slogan of the tranquil mind is: “Don’t just do something; sit there!” More

Kelly: Intuition was surprising to me because I didn’t think it would come up in every single interview I conducted, but it did. More
Omega Institute An Energy Medicine Yoga Exercise to Release Shock by Lauren Walker
Energy Medicine Yoga is essentially grooming the body’s energies to help make sure they are awake and moving, that they are running forward and not backward (a very common occurrence), and that the energy systems of the body are all cleaned out and organized. More
Omega Institute Energy as a Life Guide: An Interview With Deborah King
An Interview With Deborah King
Omega: How would you describe energy healing to a five-year-old? Deborah: I would tell an adult or a child that you’re composed of energy. Your body feels solid, but it’s moving energy. We have lots of physics research to back this up. Sometimes the movement of all that energy becomes stagnant or off-kilter, and energy healing is a way of reestablishing balance. More
Omega Institute What Yoga Is & Isn't: Overcoming Misconceptions About Yoga & Yoga Therapy by Timothy McCall
Overcoming Misconceptions About Yoga & Yoga Therapy
Many people who could benefit from yoga shy away due to misconceptions about what it is and isn't, or who can do it and who shouldn't. Here are some common misconceptions about yoga and yoga therapy. Yoga Isn't...Only for the Flexible & Fit Some people avoid yoga because they think it's only for people who can bend like Gumby. They think it's for the young, strong, and athletic—and if you look at pictures in magazines or sample some vigorous yoga classes you could easily get that impression. More
Omega Institute The Power of Affirmation by Michael Bernard Beckwith
When making affirmations, we don’t beg or manipulate something outside of ourselves to respond to our prayer; instead, we speak from that part of us that is inseparable from our Source. Affirmative statements activate the power within us to draw into our magnetic field that which we claim and affirm for ourselves, whether it’s something required to stabilize our life structures, or to move into the next stage of our evolution. Affirmation also assists us in removing subconscious blockages that would hinder fulfillment of our affirmative declarations. More
Omega Institute The Nourishment of Mindfulness by Matthew Daniell
About three decades ago I spent a year as a Buddhist monk in Thailand. It was a very austere life, dedicated to meditation and simplicity. One of the trainings I practiced was to only take one meal a day from the food collected going on alms rounds early in the morning. More
