Omega Institute Bake Better-for-You Cookies by Suzanne Boothby
Yes, Virginia, you can eat cookies this holiday season. Desserts don't have to be full of butter, sugar, or flour. Whether you are invited to a holiday cookie exchange or want to bring a homemade gift to your loved ones, these cookies have all the rich, gooey sweetness of a baked good with much better-for-you ingredients. The recipe swaps dates and banana for white sugar and almond meal and oats for traditional white flour. Creamy peanut butter holds the dough together without eggs. More

Omega Institute Drawing Closer to Nature
Botanical Illustration Brings a Long Tradition to a New Movement
It seems like nearly everything today is digital. For many people, listening to music, watching movies and television, or reading the news takes place solely on digital devices, and often all on the same device. Creating art—photography especially—is often done digitally and shared solely online. Set against the backdrop of this pixelated world is a revived interest in creating things by hand. Botanical illustration is a great case in point. More
Omega Institute 15 Ways to Nurture Your Creativity Today by Shelley Berc
Creativity is a way of living life that embraces originality and makes unique connections between seemingly disparate ideas. Creativity is about living life as a journey into seeing and communicating the extra-ordinariness of the simplest, most every day acts. We often think about creativity as making something, but in fact the root meaning of the word means "to grow." More
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
Omega Institute Visualization Meditation 101
What: Visual meditation is used in many spiritual traditions, including yoga, Taoism, Christianity, and Tibetan Buddhism, as well as in secular and therapeutic settings.  There are two primary forms of visual meditation. One is internal visualization, during which you focus on a mental image of a color, symbol, object, place, or situation. Two is gazing meditation, during which you stare at a fixed object (such as a tree, candle flame, or statue of a deity) to focus your mind.

Omega Institute Preserving Food Saves Farms & Flavor: An Interview With Marisa McClellan
An Interview With Marisa McClellan
Omega: How did you get started preserving food at home? Marisa: I grew up doing it with my mom. We lived in Portland, Oregon, and had apple trees and blackberry bushes in and around our yard and in the neighborhood. We’d go picking and do a little canning—not tons and tons, but I knew how to do it. When I was in my mid-20s I went blueberry picking one day, and came home with 13 pounds of blueberries. That was the instigator. I canned some jam and I loved it. I wanted to do more, and it just went from there.  More
