When you picture a kirtan enthusiast in your mind’s eye, do you think of a retired American sniper who did three tours in Iraq? What about a former female sergeant who’s struggling with lung injuries, rage, and post-traumatic stress?  Some veterans are discovering that kirtan—a call-and-response form of mantra chanting that originated in India—is helping them cope with conditions such as PTSD and re-entry into civilian life.

Omega Institute What Is Kirtan? by Ram Dass
The Names of God or praises of God can be sung as well as spoken. Often, when your heart wells up, singing alone expresses the fullness of your love for God. As you sing the Name repeatedly, the rhythm and melody fan your emotions. If this ecstasy is heightened, distinctions begin to fall away until only love, only the beloved, remain. More
Cheryl Strayed's Wild book excerpt
A Book Excerpt from Wild
As I hiked, I tried to force myself not to think about the things that hurt—my shoulders and upper back, my feet and hips—but I succeeded for only short bursts of time. As I traversed the eastern flank of Mount Jenkins, I paused several times to take in vast views of the desert that spread east below me to the vanishing point. By afternoon I had come to a rockslide and stopped. I looked up the mountain and followed the slide with my eyes all the way down. More
Omega Institute Make Your Own Condiments by Suzanne Boothby
No summer table is complete without the three major condiments: ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise. The standard versions of these favorites come in plastic bottles and usually contain sugar and high fructose corn syrup along with soybean oil—a partially hydrogenated vegetable oil that has been shown to raise bad cholesterol levels and contribute to inflammation and insulin resistance.

Omega Institute Diaries, Journals & Memoirs by Frances Lefkowitz
“You seem so... fine,” a woman tells me after my bookstore reading, a stunned look on her face. The girl she’d read about in my memoir got into a car with a stranger at age 8, dropped acid at 12, and got evicted with her family twice before she was 13—and she had all the anger, despair, and attitude to prove it. Now here I was, all grown up, and doing fine. When people who’ve read my memoir meet me in person, they often get that stunned look. And then, in the Q&A after the reading, they ask, “Was writing your memoir therapeutic?” More

Brené Brown, known for her groundbreaking research on vulnerability, shame, courage, and authenticity, says that our happiness depends on our willingness to make ourselves vulnerable. By this definition, memoir writers must be very happy people. More
Omega Institute One Answer by Marta Szabo
In front of Natvar on the floor was a shiny wooden rectangular box with a short keyboard—black and white keys like on a small piano. On the other side of the masking-tape aisle sat Mark cross-legged in front of an oblong drum, the kind with two circles of stretched leather on either side and a hollow egg of wood in between. More
