Can we reason with an upset mind? Mindfulness requires brain and emotional regulation, as Bessel van der Kolk explains, and these skills can be taught young.   As a matter of fact, research shows that when learned at young ages, these practices decrease stress, attention deficit issues, depression, anxiety, and hostility in children, while also benefiting their health, well-being, social relations, and academic performance, as well as setting them on the road to be happier adults.   More

Omega Institute Mindfulness as a Healing Practice: An Interview With Sister Dang Nghiem
An Interview With Sister Dang Nghiem
Omega: Why is mindfulness so important for our times? Sister D: When I was in my second year of medical school, I had to make the decision whether to do a four-year program or a five-year program. I was stressing out about it, and in a dream I saw a lot of people on bicycles just plunging down a hill. I stopped at the top of the hill and recognized that there was a little girl sitting on my handlebars. I realized that if I were to plunge down the hill, that girl would fly off the handlebars and die, so I stopped. I didn’t go down the hill.  More

Omega Institute Stop Struggling to Succeed & Enjoy the Work Instead by Mark Nepo
We all want to be successful and we all struggle with what that means. Someone tells a young man running track that he’d be good at jumping hurdles. So he trains and finds himself in the blocks, nervous, wondering if this is right for him. When the gun goes off, he’s running as fast as he can to beat the others, to stay in his lane, to clear every hurdle. Legs burning, he pushes harder and strains to cross the finish line. Out of breath, hands on his knees, he wonders briefly, how did I get here? Is this where I need to be?  More
Have I mentioned that I've been trying to figure out the Internet? I was aware that when you click on something, something new appears on the screen. I knew if you post a naked picture to Facebook they kick you out for a while. More

Omega Institute Exploring the Cycle of Inherited Trauma by Mark Wolynn
Sometimes our relationship with our parents is strong and loving, yet we still find ourselves unable to explain the difficult feelings we carry. We often assume that the problem originates inside us, and if we only dig deep enough, we’ll discover its source. Until we uncover the actual triggering event in our family history, we can relive fears and feelings that don’t belong to us—unconscious fragments of a trauma—and we will think they’re ours. Todd’s Story More
Omega Institute You Are Not the Wave by Sister Dang Nghiem
In the Buddhist tradition, there are three stages on the path of practice: Listening, Reflection, and Practice. The first stage, listening came from the historical setting of the Buddha’s time, when there was no radio, DVDs, or the Internet. The monks and nuns listened intently to the Buddha’s teachings, called dharma talks. The monastics who were listening were referred to as sravajas, which meant “listeners or hearers” of the Buddha’s teachings. Having listened, they reflected further, and they then practiced the teachings. More
Omega Institute Practices for Living Fully by H.E. Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche
In the Buddhist tradition, there are three sublime practices: The first sublime practice is the generation of a compassionate and loving heart, also known as pure intention. We begin each activity with the positive intention that our action will be of benefit to others. The second sublime practice is the activity or practice itself, which we do mindfully, while remaining in the natural state, free from distraction. More
Omega Institute Meet Your Soul Family by James Van Praagh
In this school called life, we will take various classes, which involve subjects or experiences we signed up for while still in Spirit. Before our incarnation, we choose the life we think will afford us the best opportunities and/or challenges to help us hone our skills in practicing the energy of love. For most souls, much of the curriculum is defined by the relationships they will experience on Earth. These relationships will present opportunities to learn valuable lessons that the soul wouldn't receive any other way. More
Omega Institute: 7 Habits of Highly Engaging Storytellers by Sari Botton and Eva Tenuto
In the digital age, when we tend to communicate via the abbreviated shorthand of texting and social media posts, it’s easy to lose touch with the instinct that had our ancestors spinning yarns around the campfire and passing down oral histories. Ironically, this is probably one of the reasons oral true storytelling has been gaining in popularity in recent years. Because you already know quite a bit about true storytelling—it’s innate for all humans and so you yearn for it.  Here are some keys to effective, engaging, true storytelling: More
