Omega Institute Living an Engaged Life: An Interview With Tara Brach, Part 1
An Interview With Tara Brach, Part 1
Omega: What motivated you to begin meditating? Tara: There were two reasons. First, I had the sense I needed to improve myself. I thought meditation would diminish the parts of me I didn’t like and I'd become a more perfect and awake person. I don't know where I got that idea, but I worked really hard at it. I would go to different teachers and they would say, "Just relax, it's okay," but I would then take that on as the next way to improve myself. More

An Interview With Tara Brach
We seem to have an uneasy relationship with the body in Western culture. We are especially averse to pain, discomfort and aging. How can we learn to be compassionate and more at home in the body regardless of our physical condition? More

Being Black in Buddhist Community
There is no doubt in my mind that Buddhism is a religion. It has rituals, traditions, schools, and hierarchical structures. However, Buddhist philosophy, in its purest form, is just a set of principles to help you become awake to the life that you have so that you can live it more completely. If we go back to the original ideas and strip away the extras, if we take the “ism” out of what a brother named Buddha taught, then it's no more and no less than a way of planning your life. More
Mercury is currently retrograde in Gemini, making several contacts to Neptune in Pisces. Mercury is the worldly god of technology and communication. Neptune is the worldly god of the imagination, deception, dreams, and intoxicating substances. Put them together in the digital environment and we are likely to get some observable effects, or rather, effects worth observing. Mercury retrogrades are a time to pay attention and tune into the environment; the challenges make that environment more noticeable, and your responses to it easier to feel. More

Omega Institute Hope, Connection & Survival in the Wild by Les Stroud
As a young boy I played outside my cottage in the forest, pretending to survive. I made pillows out of moss and put branches up for crude shelter roofs. I talked to trees and bugs and animals. It was my escape. My refuge from a mediocre life in suburbia. I dreamed of being like Jacques Cousteau. I dreamed of being like Tarzan. And, lo and behold, what is Survivorman if not the perfect hybrid of those two dreams? But in the adult world of television production, my reason for those dreams—connecting to nature—disappeared into the din of business, money, and schedules.  More

Omega Institute The Power of Unplugging
Why You May Want to Try a "Digital Detox"
If you are interested in being more productive at work, having better relationships, sleeping soundly, and having a slimmer waistline, it might be time to unplug. Research now confirms what many of us suspected—the convenience of our mobile devices comes with an energy-draining price. The good news is we can reclaim our energy by unplugging, whether it be for a few hours before bed, the whole weekend, or longer. It's called a "digital detox," or going "screen-free," and it means you turn off your smartphones, tablets, laptops, TVs, and computers for a set amount of time. More
