Omega Institute The Fire of Activism: An Interview With Isabel Allende
An Interview With Isabel Allende
Omega: What do you think of the growing popularity and commercialization of feminism in pop culture? Isabel: It’s fine. Make condoms that say “feminist.” As long as it’s out there. It can take any shape or form or language—just bring it up. More

Omega Institute: 7 Habits of Highly Engaging Storytellers by Sari Botton and Eva Tenuto
In the digital age, when we tend to communicate via the abbreviated shorthand of texting and social media posts, it’s easy to lose touch with the instinct that had our ancestors spinning yarns around the campfire and passing down oral histories. Ironically, this is probably one of the reasons oral true storytelling has been gaining in popularity in recent years. Because you already know quite a bit about true storytelling—it’s innate for all humans and so you yearn for it.  Here are some keys to effective, engaging, true storytelling: More
Omega Institute Accepting Your Truth: An Interview With Mark Nepo
An Interview With Mark Nepo
Omega: Is there a poem that inspired you to be a poet? Mark: The poetry of Pablo Neruda really inspired me. When I first read his work, I felt like, “I must belong to this tribe.” My oldest friend, Robert, who comes with me as a guest every year when I teach at Omega, introduced me to Neruda. I was so moved, I wouldn’t give him the book back. Omega: In 1987, you were diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma, which has greatly informed much of your work. What’s the first step toward healing?  More

An Interview With Ysaye Barnwell
Omega: What was it like to grow up in a musical household? Ysaye: My father taught piano, violin, and viola in our home, and I wanted to do what they were doing. I remember at two and a half I had this little, tiny violin, and he started teaching me how to hold it. I was around music all the time and played in the orchestra in junior high school and then high school, and sang in a choir while I was in junior high school. It was a community choir, and all we did was spirituals. More
Omega Institute Self-Test: Do You Have Food Intolerances? Avoid These 7 Common Allergans by JJ Virgin
Avoid These 7 Common Allergens
The more trouble you’ve had with losing weight and keeping it off, the more likely it is that food intolerance is at the root of your problem. Even if you’re not experiencing symptoms, highly reactive or high-food intolerance (high-FI) foods are almost certainly behind your struggles with weight loss. If yogurt, eggs, soymilk, and whole-wheat bread are a frequent part of your diet—and especially if you’re eating them every day—your system is overwhelmed with problem foods, and your immune system never really calms down.

Omega Institute You Should Write, Even if You'll Miss the Mark: An Interview With Maia Danziger
An Interview With Maia Danziger
Omega: How has your acting career influenced your writing practice? Maia: It’s the same process, only with different outcomes. Really good acting is about being completely present in the moment. It's about having done your homework and then giving everything up and allowing the flow to move through it. As an actor I often hear people say, “Oh my God, I got nervous when I walked out on stage.” More
