Omega Institute Learn to Forgive Yourself: An Interview With Tara Brach
An Interview With Tara Brach
Omega: Forgiving yourself can be just as hard as forgiving others. How can we find the self-compassion to forgive? Tara: If you can’t forgive yourself, then bring to mind someone that can forgive you and draw on his or her openheartedness to open your own heart. Think of a grandmother, friend, or spiritual figure, and imagine them looking at you with pure love, forgiveness, and mercy. Put your hand on your heart and imagine that being’s love moving into your heart. More

Omega Institute How To Resolve Emotionally Charged States by Miles Sherts
The support that is most helpful when we are in an emotionally charged state comes from other people empathizing with our situation and showing they care. This validation of our experience can then give us the courage we need to face the issue for ourselves. Imagine that you are walking alone in the dark. Perhaps it is on a dark street, in a dark room or hallway, or out on a trail at night, and you likely feel some discomfort or fear.  More
Saturn in Sagittarius
Thursday, September 17 was one of those days when everything happened, though in my view Saturn's ingress into Sagittarius was the main event. Saturn's two-year journey through Sagittarius involves squares to Nessus, Neptune, and Chiron in Pisces, and conjunctions to the Great Attractor and the Galactic Core—as well as other slow-moving points still holding space in those late degrees of Sagittarius, close to the Galactic Core.

Omega Institute We Don't Need Another Mother Teresa, We Need You by Jack Kornfield
Finding Courage to Walk Your Spiritual Path
True spirituality requires us to be fully present for life. For us to begin to look directly at the world situation is not a question of ceremony or of religion. Meditation helps us to look deeply at the sorrow that exists now in our world, and to look at our individual and collective relationship to it, to bear witness to it, to acknowledge it instead of running away. Without mindfulness and compassion the suffering is too great to bear. We close our minds. We close our eyes and our hearts. More
Omega Institute Let's Dream a New World: An Interview With John Perkins
An Interview With John Perkins
Omega: Was there a turning point or defining moment in your life that “lifted the veil” for you? John: There have been a lot of turning points, but probably the key one happened when I was in the Amazon and I got very, very ill. I was dying and lost a lot of weight in a very short period of time, then a shaman healed me in one night in a shamanic shapeshifting ceremony. More

Omega Institute You Only Need Four Seconds by Peter Bregman
“A four-second pause—the time it takes to take one breath in, one breath out—can be powerful enough to subvert a poor decision and replace it with a smarter one.” —Peter Bregman This morning, like every morning, I sat cross-legged on a cushion on the floor, rested my hands on my knees, closed my eyes, and did nothing but breathe for 20 minutes.
