What Do You Want?
"My definition of learning is discovering that something is possible." —Fritz Perls Our planet began its passage between Mars and the Sun recently, which astrologers call Mars retrograde. That started April 17 and ends June 29. Mars is rarely retrograde, so this qualifies as a special event. It will be retrograde in Sagittarius and Scorpio. More
Omega Institute What to Expect From Meditation: An Interview With Culadasa
An Interview With Culadasa
Omega: What is the biggest challenge for beginning meditators? Culadasa: The biggest obstacle of all, without question, is establishing a regular daily practice of a reasonable length. The most important thing is consistency. I encourage people to meditate every day, no matter how long they can do it. Then I encourage them to work their way up to 45 minutes. And I don’t mean just sitting there and daydreaming—I mean actually meditating. More

Robynne: To “live dirty" means to restore our essential connection with nature and with the trillions of microbes that call our bodies home—and whose survival is inextricably linked to ours.

Omega Institute Unlock the Body's Medicine With Yoga
An Interview With Madan Bali
Omega: Can you describe the basic principle of your yoga practice? Madan: I’ve been teaching, researching, and coming up with new insights since 1969. Yoga has much more to offer than we think. We have the finest technology available on this planet in our own body. The body writes its own prescription from moment to moment. Just think about when we go into deep sleep, there’s nothing to be done, nothing to be fixed. Everything is being done for us. More
Omega Institute Tune In to the Life You Want by Pam Grout
Reality ain’t all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, it’s not a stretch to say that everything you think is real is not. Physicists, for going on 100 years now, have not known what to make of the fact that Newton’s classical view of the world has absolutely no bearing on the way the world works at its core. The subatomic realm so defies all reason and logic that most scientists, scared to endanger their academic credentials, have more or less ignored the fact that life is nothing like what we pretend it is.

Uranus Meets Eris in Aries
There is an astrological event brewing that happens this spring for the first time since 1925: a conjunction of two slow-moving outer planets called Uranus and Eris. You may recall that Eris became famous in 2006 when it precipitated the re-definition of a planet, leading to the "demotion" of Pluto. What is so exciting is that because Eris was discovered just 11 years ago, we will experience this conjunction with full awareness for the first time in human history. More
