Omega Institute Pause and Absorb by Colleen Saidman
In 2006, Rodney and I had the privilege of taking a few classes with B.K.S. Iyengar. When it came time for headstand, I informed the yoga master that I didn’t do them—I have a seizure disorder, and I always felt it was aggravated by headstands. He told me, in no uncertain terms, to stand on my head now! And I did. I stayed up, and only came down when he said it was time. More
Omega Institute Seeing Through the Dark by Caroline Myss
On Being a Medical IntuitiveWhen I was a kid, I would do readings on houses. When we were driving around I would say to my mom, “You know what that house looks like inside? The people in there are happy, and the people in that house are not happy.” More
Omega Institute We Are One Mind: An Interview With Larry Dossey
An Interview With Larry Dossey
Omega: Can you explain what the research on prayer and healing shows? How does prayer help heal? Dossey: There are around 30 major controlled clinical trials of distant intercessory prayer, around half of which show statistically significant results—far more than you would expect by chance. Healing studies are also confirmed in nonhumans—plants, animals, microbes, even biochemical reactions—which show that the healing response in humans cannot possibly be attributed only to the placebo response or the power of positive thinking.  More
Omega Institute Being the Part, Feeling the Whole by Mark Nepo
During the last eight months of my father's life, he was in and out of hospitals and rehabilitation centers. I had flown in to see him again. When I arrived, he was sleeping and my brother said he was having a hard day. I sat by his side. When he woke, he didn't know who I was. This had never happened before. More
Omega Institute Touching In With the Present Moment by Pema Chödrön
At the beginning of a meditation session, it can be helpful to check in with your mind before you begin. See where you’re at right now. To find yourself in the present moment, it can help if you run through a series of questions to help you contact your mind, to help you become aware of what’s happening in this very moment. More
Omega Institute A Closer Look at Constellations by Bert Hellinger
An Interview With Bert Hellinger
Martin: First, a question concerning the expression coined by you, “the orders of love.” What does this mean? Bert: Order is that according to which something develops. A tree for instance develops according to an order. Otherwise it will not be a tree any longer. And yet every tree is different. Order isn’t something static. It is a living principle. Love, of course, means here the relationship between humans. It also succeeds according to certain orders. When we know about these orders, our relationships succeed better. More
Omega Institute The Enigma of Consciousness by Eben Alexander
All the objects in the physical universe are made up of atoms. Atoms, in turn, are made up of protons, electrons, and neutrons. These, in turn, are (as physicists discovered in the early years of the twentieth century) all particles. And particles are made up of…Well, quite frankly, physicists don’t really know. But one thing we do know about particles is that each one is connected to every other one in the universe. They are all, at the deepest level, interconnected. More
As Jupiter and the Sun entered Leo in late July (their conjunction was exact on Thursday, July 24), one event after the next has offered vivid and painful confirmation of a world in crisis. On the personal level, field reports are coming in with a diversity of responses to the current astrology, though I'm hearing stories in the "everything all at once" genre. More

Omega Institute Can Contemplative Practice Teach Us to Think Better by Daniel P. Barbezat and Mirabai Bush
One of the claims of higher education, and particularly of liberal arts colleges, is that we teach students how to think. What does this actually mean? Surely our students can think, so in what sense do they need to be taught to think? Maybe it means that we aid them in developing their analytical problem-solving skills and their ability to integrate different aspects of situations creatively. Certainly one of the goals of contemplative exercises is to develop these skills. More
