A Women's Retreat

As a result, we become...

Omega Institute Trauma Workers Need to Help Themselves, Too
Burnout. Compassion fatigue. Secondary traumatic stress. These are terms used to describe the emotional (and physical) drain experienced by many trauma workers. The symptoms can mimic those of post-traumatic stress: feeling numb, anxious, depressed, cynical, discouraged, or fatigued. Caregivers may also experience sleep issues from working too many hours or seeing too many patients. More
As the friendly little robot New Horizons flew through the Pluto-Charon system, people were talking about it. They still are. It's beautiful how much everyone seems to care. Mike Brown, the discoverer of Eris and the demoter of Pluto, was right the first time around: Pluto is a cultural planet. Regardless of what it may be scientifically, people care—and they love Pluto. The Internet memes are flying. "So you dumped me years ago. But now you're driving past my house real slow." People actually understand why that's funny. More
Omega Institute Passage Meditation 101
What: Passage meditation is the act of sitting quietly and reading out loud or mentally repeating a passage from a spiritual book or text. It has been historically practiced in numerous world religions, including Judaism, Islam, Christianity, and Buddhism.  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 Looking for Silence
"There's a great space in which this moment takes place. There's a great silence that is listening to the thoughts," says Adyashanti, a spiritual teacher who leads silent retreats at Omega and elsewhere.  “In the end it’s all very simple. Either we give ourselves to silence or we don’t,” he says. But how can we find silence in the cacophony of our modern world? Cities have always been loud, but noise has now crept into the suburbs, and even the wild, and is nearly impossible to escape.  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.

Omega Institute Ready for Your Third Act? Jane Fonda on How to Thrive Past Midlife
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.

Present Yourself Fearlessly by Elizabeth Gilbert
My advice is just usually my mom's good advice recycled. I feel more comfortable just redispensing her advice because I know it came from her Grandma. I know it's been tested, it's got deep legs. It's a home remedy. We know how to make apple butter. I'm not doing your new fangled fancy culinary molecular advice here, this is advice you know grandma to grandma to granddaughter to granddaughter that got passed on. More
On my short to-do list of book projects, I have a concept for one called Know When You Don't Know: A Guide to Investigative Reporting and Life. The little joke in there is that life is kind of like an investigative reporting project. It always was one, but in our current environment of information overwhelm, awareness is indispensable. More
