Omega Institute Moving Through Grief by Ana Forrest
Holding on to anger, fear, or resentment can cause physical pain, but when we heal our emotional pain, our physical pain often subsides. The emotions need to be in motion in order for us to be healthy. We've got to move them and feel them and let them express themselves. More
Omega Institute Looking for Silence
"There's a great space in which this moment takes place. There's a great silence that is listening to the thoughts," says Adyashanti, a spiritual teacher who leads silent retreats at Omega and elsewhere.  “In the end it’s all very simple. Either we give ourselves to silence or we don’t,” he says. But how can we find silence in the cacophony of our modern world? Cities have always been loud, but noise has now crept into the suburbs, and even the wild, and is nearly impossible to escape.  More
Omega Institute Relationships as a Soul Journey by James Van Praagh
Relationships: I am attracted to those people who serve my higher good. In this three-dimensional world in which we live, there is a sense that we are separate from one another and also that we meet by chance. This is an illusion. The people in our lives are drawn to us and are here for a reason. It is through sharing experiences and having relationships with others that we begin to understand ourselves.  More
Omega Institute Embrace Life at Every Stage
In 1900, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years old. The U.S. Census Bureau now predicts that by 2020 the average life expectancy will be close to 80 years old, and many people will live beyond that. While life spans are increasing, there is an ever-growing media culture that seems obsessed with anti-aging, as evidenced by the growing promotion of anti-aging creams and diets, and attention to celebrities who “defy” their age.

Omega Institute Ready for Your Third Act? Jane Fonda on How to Thrive Past Midlife
Jane Fonda on How to Thrive Past Midlife
Oscar winning-actress and activist Jane Fonda says the “third act,” those extra 30 years past midlife, is not just a footnote. In this talk filmed at TEDx Women, she likens these years to a staircase. Jokingly, she admits that while it may seem like getting older makes it harder to climb stairs, she points out that our human spirit continues to climb upward even while the body might be declining.

Present Yourself Fearlessly by Elizabeth Gilbert
My advice is just usually my mom's good advice recycled. I feel more comfortable just redispensing her advice because I know it came from her Grandma. I know it's been tested, it's got deep legs. It's a home remedy. We know how to make apple butter. I'm not doing your new fangled fancy culinary molecular advice here, this is advice you know grandma to grandma to granddaughter to granddaughter that got passed on. More
On my short to-do list of book projects, I have a concept for one called Know When You Don't Know: A Guide to Investigative Reporting and Life. The little joke in there is that life is kind of like an investigative reporting project. It always was one, but in our current environment of information overwhelm, awareness is indispensable. More
Omega Institute Mantra Meditation 101
What: Practiced in a variety of spiritual traditions, mantra meditation is the act of silently or audibly repeating a mantra—a special word, thought, or phrase—either in an ancient, sacred language, or in your native tongue. More
Soren Kierkegaard said, “Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.” How can we turn a vague longing for renewal into a specific vision of a new way forward? It is not an easy thing to be reborn. The problem, as Marshall McLuhan said, is “we drive into the future using only our rearview mirror.” More
