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. More
Omega Institute The Power of Love by James Van Praagh
All energy can change its character based on our thoughts. Thoughts affect and alter energy. Everything we see first originated as a thought—the great painter of the world. As a medium, I've intuited many times that all physical matter on Earth derives from a higher mental level. Each work of art, each invention, every new medial breakthrough...was first created in the Spiritual Realms and eventually trickled down to a recipient as "inspiration" or "droplets of God." More
Omega Institute What the Goddess Teaches Us About Death by Llyn Roberts
Water that flows from the Earth, to trees, and us, is like milk that flows from mother to child. It’s similar to the love that pours from ancient mother goddesses to assist people through every phase of life, including death. One such mother goddess who ushers us through death’s doorway is the Egyptian Lady of the Sycamore Tree. The Lady rejuvenates those who are dying and refreshes the souls of the dead in the afterlife by offering them water from the branches of her sacred tree. More
Omega Institute 3 Yoga Poses to Help You Stand on Your Own 2 Feet by Colleen Saidman
All women, including models, yearn to discover their immense inner beauty and to find inspiration, as well as refuge, as gravity and time alter their outer bodies. Coming to a love of one’s self takes discipline, diligence, and dedication—all keys to being a well-adjusted woman in this crazy world. I aspire for every one of us to be real, to look in the mirror and say, “You are the bomb.” Models seem drawn to yoga in unusually high numbers. My guess is they come because yoga helps them find balance and a sense of self in a profession where outward appearances matter most. More
Omega Institute Untangling From the Mind's Maze by Tara Bennett-Goleman
In a small town in the Berkshire Mountains I came across a large field surrounded by woods that holds a meticulously designed labyrinth, a smaller version of the famous one at Chartres Cathedral. This maze of stone walkways adorned with floral plantings invites you to embark on a mini-pilgrimage, a timeless, leisurely stroll. Near the entrance a plaque encourages you to leave your thoughts behind as you enter, and be open to what you experience as you meander its turns and twists. More
Omega Institute Uncovering Our New Story by Victoria Johnson
Don't be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth." —Rumi We only need to peruse headlines in our newspapers or scroll though Facebook newsfeeds to know, viscerally, that the world is in need of a new story—an inspiring, galvanizing, inclusive new narrative. We need a narrative that is unlike any story we have told ourselves before. Our survival as a species requires it. More
Use What You Know
In astrology, Jupiter represents style trends, among many other things. The largest of the planets (1,200 times the size of Earth) orbits our Sun in about 12 years, exerting so much gravity on our central star that the Sun oscillates as Jupiter tugs on it. By the way, you can tell that to anyone who claims that the obstetrician exerts more gravity on the newborn baby than does Jupiter (by which logic astrology cannot possibly be true). I've never seen a doctor cause a star to wobble. More
