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.

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 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
