4 Ways to Increase Your Happiness Now
Circumstances may not always give you a reason to be happy, but happiness is still within your grasp. One way to get happy is to connect with your qi, or life force energy. Here are some easy ways to generate your own happiness, whatever your current mood. Smile From Within Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh said, “Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.” More
Omega Institute Soul to Soul at Work by Ram Dass
An Interview With Ram Dass, Part 2
Lois: What do you think is the most important work for organizations like Omega to focus on now? Ram Dass: Compassion! Compassion and making one’s work karma yoga; doing one’s work as a vehicle for getting to God. And that will be wonderful.

February 2015: In the Belly of the Internet by Eric Francis
February arrives at the depth of winter in most of the Northern Hemisphere, when we live in the shadow of cold, rain, and snow. Within February's first few days lies one of the four high holidays—or sabbats—of the pagan calendar, called Imbolc in Celtic times. Its corresponding holidays are Beltane (or May Day, on May 1 or May 5, depending on your tradition), Lammas (also called Lambess, Lughnasa, first harvest or second planting in agricultural communities, on August 1) and Samhain (also called Halloween, or Day of the Dead, on October 31).

Omega Institute An Introduction to Subtle Energy
How to Work With Prana and Qi
Words to describe the subtle life force that animates us—like prana and qi—have been around for thousands of years. These terms are only recently becoming common in our Western vernacular and can be difficult to translate. Like a cool breeze or the warmth of a fire, prana and qi are perhaps more easily understood when felt and experienced. More
Omega Institute Nature Nurtures Spirituality & Environmentalism in Kids
You’ve probably heard that kids today spend far less time outdoors than they did two decades ago—it's probably true for you, too.

January 2015: A Beginner’s Guide to the 21st Century by Eric Francis
It’s taken me 14 years to get a handle on the 21st century, but I finally feel like I’m making some progress. One thing that I will say is that I’m learning how helpful it is to look to the past for some information about where we are today. It may not be the ultimate guide, but if you want to know where “here” is, it’s a good idea to know where you came from and how you went from there. More
