An Interview With Florence Meleo-Meyer
Omega: Can we be mindful or present without knowing it, or is it something we need to practice? Florence: At its core, mindfulness is the innate human capacity to be aware. All human beings come with this capacity to know what’s happening as it’s happening, but we are not trained to access that capacity. It takes continuity and discipline to access what’s already here. This capacity to be aware requires you make a choice to be awake in the present moment with whatever is showing up. More
An Interview With Elena Brower
Omega: When you first started teaching, you've said you were afraid to speak from your heart. How did that change for you?

It was painful to teach the work so well and not be practicing myself.  Omega: Why do you think so many people hide their true selves? More

Uranus Conjunct Eris
Anyone can see that we’re in an extraordinary moment. While there are many facets of astrology to describe, one of them stands tall, which is the Uranus-Eris conjunction. You might say that this conjunction has the theme of choosing whether you want to be in your body or not. This conjunction last came at another revolutionary moment, the dawn of the mass media age in 1927-1928. This was before Eris was discovered in 2005. Now the conjunction is back. Its peak is through 2016 and 2017, though add on seven years to either side for the full span of its effects. More

I used to think that religious dogma was the outgrowth of fear and unresolved parental issues. Certainly, much modern religion has lost touch with its more mystical roots, but there is no question that what ails the average American, as British writer and journalist Graham Hancock says, is a disconnection from Spirit. Fear is an infectious disease. You can catch fear but you can’t catch faith. That has to come from within. —Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez More
