American Buddhism & Diversity
When Being Black came out in 2000, I was chagrined by what I had done. I realized that, out of my love and appreciation for the dharma, I issued this invitation to people of color into a Buddhist American space that was not welcoming. Obviously there were pockets and exceptions—but for the most part, the Western Buddhist community did not want or know how to receive them. I had invited black folks to crash the private upper middle class party that was going on and it was just not wanted. Really, I was quite bereft for a while, feeling foolish and naïve. More
An Interview With Anita Moorjani
Omega: You have described your near-death experience as a “realm of clarity and expansiveness.” Can you tell us what it was like? Anita: I felt total clarity and a sense of awakening. It was as if everything I believed and bought into about myself disappeared. It didn't matter how many degrees I had, or what my race, religion, or cultural background were—it all disappeared. There was no need for labels. More
Omega Institute Move Your Mind in 15 Minutes by Tony Horton
A Meditation With Tony Horton
I have a 15-minute meditation that I break up into five-minute chunks and do at a lot at my seminars. I did it at Omega, and it was really interesting to see the responses from everybody, from “Oh my, that’s so weird and so scary," and "This stuff is foreign to me,” to people who said it resonated deep in their soul. The first five minutes is just sitting quietly in a seated position, maybe on a yoga block or a folded up blanket, and doing a standard meditation of breathing, without making it too complicated.

Omega Institute Thinking Outside of the "Man Box": An Interview With Tony Porter
An Interview With Tony Porter
Omega: What exactly is a “man box” and how does it serve, as well as inhibit, manhood?  Tony: The “man box” is how men have been collectively socialized to understand what it means to be a man. It doesn’t mean that all men respond in the same way to this collective socialization but it does mean that all men have an understanding of this socialization. More
An Interview With Michael J. Gelb
Omega: What is your definition of a personal or professional Renaissance? Michael: We are all born with the capacity for genius. Every healthy child displays boundless energy, wild imagination, and delightful creativity. But then we go to school and get de-geniused. Renaissance means “rebirth.” I’m devoted to helping my students experience a rebirth or Renaissance of their original energy, imagination, and creativity.  More
