If you think you’re not a dreamer—or that you can’t remember your dreams—think again. We all dream multiple times each night, and, with practice, you can make the most of your sleeping hours to awaken your innate wisdom, joy, and potential. In this video, Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep codeveloper and teacher Charlie Morely explains the practice and potential of lucid dreaming and offers three steps to begin connecting with your dreams tonight.

When the world around you feels chaotic and stressful, try using this conscious and heart-centered mantra for inner peace from spiritual teacher and empathic healer Matt Kahn.  More
There are many ways to do the work of connecting with people who hold beliefs that differ from our own without losing sight of truth, love, and justice, says Marrow author and Omega cofounder Elizabeth Lesser. Elizabeth's comment came during an Omega panel discussion with author and activist Glennon Doyle and FIFA Women’s World Cup Champion Abby Wambach. More
The first time Marshawn Feltus tried yoga was in prison. He immediately felt the physical benefits of the practice, and the mental and spiritual benefits eventually crept up on him, too. He started a prison yoga program that served more than 800 inmates before he was released from prison and returned to his Chicago neighborhood where he created ACT Yoga (for Awareness, Change, Triumph), a community yoga project. More
In our busy world, it can be difficult to connect within. Iyanla Vanzant, one of America's most profound spiritual leaders, recommends prayer to create a stronger relationship with yourself. More
How is it possible to inspire inner city kids who live among litter, concrete, and gunshots to open up to themselves, each other, and the planet? A nighttime gag with a gorilla mask is one way. So is seeing cows for the very first time. More
Whether at the dinner table or in the public arena, when facing those who experience the world from different points of view, we can find ourselves tangled in our own and others’ anger, self-righteousness, and even violence. In this excerpt from Omega's 2017 Being Fearless Conference created for Omega members, mindfulness pioneer Jon Kabat-Zinn reminds us of the enormous resources of empathy, compassion, and wisdom that are available to us all. He describes how moment-to-moment awareness and nonreactive, nonjudgmental responses to everyday challenges can help reboot an uncivil discourse. More
Eight minutes a day. That’s all it takes for meditation to begin to change your brain, to bring greater clarity, improved memory, and less reactivity, explains expert meditation teacher Sharon Salzberg. Growth and transformation happen every time we “begin again,” she says. More
"Colonization," says author and North Dakota State professor Michael Yellow Bird, "really is about invasion and subjugation of indigenous people." In this fascinating and challenging presentation from Omega’s 2018 Making Peace With the Earth conference, Dr. Yellow Bird reveals how long-embedded cultural assumptions continue to undermine indigenous rights and how the brain can be predisposed to perpetuate false narratives about indigenous people, customs, and history.

Friday Evening: From Anxiety to Relaxation I was uncomfortable. How could I take a weekend away from my family and a yard full of chores to indulge in a workshop entitled Uncork Your Creative Juices: Appreciating Wine, Music, Chocolate & Poetry? There are political phone calls to make, emails to send, support to gather for people suffering from Hurricane Florence and around the world. More
Omega: In your memoir, I Love You and I’m Leaving You Anyway, you write about your experience in relationships and how they can be one of the hardest and most rewarding parts of life. You write the phrase, “If I’m hysterical, it’s historical,” talking about how emotions can run high during conflicts. Can you talk about what that means? More

Omega: How do you introduce mindfulness to those new to the concept? More
Omega: What is the difference between attention and awareness, two terms we often hear used interchangeably when talking about meditation practice? Culadasa: They are two fundamentally different ways of perceiving the universe. First of all, the two are served by different parts of the brain—they have different neural correlates and are objectively different. More
I first rely on the practice of mindful breathing. I think of myself as a bird watcher. Bird watchers don’t try to make the bird go north or south, faster or slower, they just watch it as it is. In mindful breathing we come back to our in-breath and out-breath as it is throughout the day. Mindful breathing is definitely my lifesaver and my most favorite practice.  —Sister D. More
Omega: In your early life you were an artist and concert violinist. What early spiritual lessons did you gather from your creative pursuits? Jon: My mother really encouraged creativity. I remember she would get these large rolls of blank paper from the butcher. She would put them in my room and I’d have paints and everything else, and I would just draw and create. I had this freedom to express and to explore. More
