Omega Institute Reviving Musical Treasures: An Interview With Jimmie Dale Gilmore
An Interview With Jimmie Dale Gilmore
Omega: What instrument would you still like to learn how to play? Jimmie: I would love to play the piano. I always regret that I didn’t learn the piano. I also would like to play the electric guitar. Omega: Do you match your music to your mood or can music dictate a mood? More
cup of bone broth
Early in my career, I quickly established a track record of success as a weight loss specialist. But I wanted to do even better for my patients—and, in particular, I wanted to achieve the biggest results in the shortest time for patients struggling with obesity. Many of the people I work with merely want to lose a dress size or a pants size, but others are dangerously overweight. They’re diabetic, they have heart disease, they have sleep apnea, and they can barely move. So they need to drop weight fast. More
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

Robynne: To “live dirty" means to restore our essential connection with nature and with the trillions of microbes that call our bodies home—and whose survival is inextricably linked to ours. To “eat clean” means to eat unprocessed food from nature (mostly plants) grown responsibly, without harmful pesticides, etc. Omega: What’s your personal recipe for feeling your best?

Omega Institute Roasted Artichokes by Suzanne Boothby
In his “Ode to an Artichoke” Pablo Neruda wrote, “The tender-hearted artichoke dressed up as a warrior, erect, it built itself a little dome, it kept itself impregnable beneath its armoured leaves.” Cooking artichokes can be intimidating thanks to their tough exterior, but their health benefits are worth the extra effort. Along with being a great source of fiber and vitamins C and K, artichokes are full of antioxidants. Makes 6-8 Servings More
woman eyes closed outside
More than four decades is a long time to be engaged in one activity. Have I managed to do meditation every day no matter what? No. Have I often experienced states of bliss that kept me going? No. Did my knees hurt? Yes. Did my shoulders ache? Yes. Was I sometimes filled with anger, aggression, tormented by old ragged memories? Yes. Did I burn with sexual desire, crave a hot fudge sundae so bad my teeth ached? Yes. Why did I do it? What kept me going? More
An Interview With Elizabeth Gilbert
Omega: Women in the 21st century are forging new paths while being held to impossible “women's magazine” standards—“perfection” and “balance” are words you encourage women not to use. The Signature of All Things tells the 19th century life story of a rare, intrepid woman scientist. Do you consider yourself political in your writing? Elizabeth: Somebody asked if Signature of All Things is a feminist novel and I said, “I'm never going to write anything that's not a feminist screed in some way or another, explicitly so or not.” More
