Oh my god, I feel incredible! I’m so free and light! How come I’m not feeling any more pain in my body? Where has it all gone? Hey, why does it seem like my surroundings are moving away from me? But I’m not scared! Why am I not scared? Where has my fear gone? Oh wow, I can’t find the fear anymore! More
Into the Mysteries of 2016
The astrology of 2016 is the first major turning point after what I’ve been calling the 2012-era, which spanned from 2008 through 2015. Like many new mini-ages of astrology, this one started with great promise—the election of Barack Obama—and it is ending with an extremely tense and apparently worsening world situation. The most important question for astrology is: What can we learn about how to adapt, survive, and hopefully thrive under the new conditions? More

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
