Life in the New Paradigm

There is much more to our so-called reality than what we can see, hear, smell, touch, and taste. The spiritual realm is right here and available to us. It is a fundamental part of our collective truth.

Omega Institute What the Goddess Teaches Us About Death by Llyn Roberts
Water that flows from the Earth, to trees, and us, is like milk that flows from mother to child. It’s similar to the love that pours from ancient mother goddesses to assist people through every phase of life, including death. One such mother goddess who ushers us through death’s doorway is the Egyptian Lady of the Sycamore Tree. The Lady rejuvenates those who are dying and refreshes the souls of the dead in the afterlife by offering them water from the branches of her sacred tree. More
Omega Institute 3 Yoga Poses to Help You Stand on Your Own 2 Feet by Colleen Saidman
All women, including models, yearn to discover their immense inner beauty and to find inspiration, as well as refuge, as gravity and time alter their outer bodies. Coming to a love of one’s self takes discipline, diligence, and dedication—all keys to being a well-adjusted woman in this crazy world. I aspire for every one of us to be real, to look in the mirror and say, “You are the bomb.” Models seem drawn to yoga in unusually high numbers. My guess is they come because yoga helps them find balance and a sense of self in a profession where outward appearances matter most. More
Omega Institute Untangling From the Mind's Maze by Tara Bennett-Goleman
In a small town in the Berkshire Mountains I came across a large field surrounded by woods that holds a meticulously designed labyrinth, a smaller version of the famous one at Chartres Cathedral. This maze of stone walkways adorned with floral plantings invites you to embark on a mini-pilgrimage, a timeless, leisurely stroll. Near the entrance a plaque encourages you to leave your thoughts behind as you enter, and be open to what you experience as you meander its turns and twists. More
Omega Institute Uncovering Our New Story by Victoria Johnson
Don't be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth." —Rumi We only need to peruse headlines in our newspapers or scroll though Facebook newsfeeds to know, viscerally, that the world is in need of a new story—an inspiring, galvanizing, inclusive new narrative. We need a narrative that is unlike any story we have told ourselves before. Our survival as a species requires it. More
Use What You Know
In astrology, Jupiter represents style trends, among many other things. The largest of the planets (1,200 times the size of Earth) orbits our Sun in about 12 years, exerting so much gravity on our central star that the Sun oscillates as Jupiter tugs on it. By the way, you can tell that to anyone who claims that the obstetrician exerts more gravity on the newborn baby than does Jupiter (by which logic astrology cannot possibly be true). I've never seen a doctor cause a star to wobble. More

Omega Institute Finding Gratitude in a Painful Moment by Monique Lang
We were two-thirds of the way to the top of Mount Washington when my right leg gave out. My friend Marc and I had planned this hike on the summer solstice for over a year. So we decided to do the climb even though it was drizzling, which it turned out, meant we could not stop as we became too chilled. I was soaked through and through (even through my rain gear), borderline hypothermic, and in major pain. Yet there was no solution except to keep going. More
Omega Institute Making Anger Work for You by Joe Weston
Not all aggression looks the same. Any act, word, or gesture that pierces through into someone else’s personal space and causes the other to feel unsafe, threatened, or hurt is considered aggression. That could be a look, shouting, pulling a gun, or ignoring someone. More
Omega Institute Which Meditation Is Right for You?

Omega Institute Miso Vegetable Soup: A Cooking Meditation by Suzanne Boothby
A Cooking Meditation
Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh sums up Zen practice with these few words: “Smile, breathe, and go slowly.” In our busy lives, it's not uncommon to rush when preparing (and eating) a meal. But miso loses healthful enzymes and its aroma when boiled, so rushing is not the best strategy. Warming the soup slowly and gently requires mindful attention, which is the perfect opportunity to take Thich Nhat Hanh's advice. More
