Omega Institute A Writer's Rules for Meditation by Natalie Goldberg
More than four decades is a long time to be engaged in one activity. Have I managed to do meditation every day no matter what? No. Have I often experienced states of bliss that kept me going? No. Did my knees hurt? Yes. Did my shoulders ache? Yes. Was I sometimes filled with anger, aggression, tormented by old ragged memories? Yes. Did I burn with sexual desire, crave a hot fudge sundae so bad my teeth ached? Yes. Why did I do it? What kept me going? More

Omega Institute A Coach’s Perspective on Body Wisdom by Richard Michaels
We can use our body as a fortress or as a cathedral—protecting ourselves from the possibility of pain or danger, or opening ourselves to the beauty and wisdom in every cell. We’re taught to trivialize our bodily sensations because we’re afraid of suffering, eros, or narcissism. So we close ourselves off to our deepest yearnings, our desires for love and freedom, our hunger for expressing from the deepest parts of ourselves. More

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
Omega Institute What Death Can Teach Us About Living: An Interview With Anita Moorjani
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.
