Omega Institute Your Intuition Can Keep You Healthy: An Interview With Kelly Turner
An Interview With Kelly Turner
Omega: Can you talk about following your intuition—one of nine healing factors you identified as shared by patients who have experienced a radical remission? How can anyone—healthy or sick—learn to listen to signals from their body and mind? Kelly: Intuition was surprising to me because I didn’t think it would come up in every single interview I conducted, but it did. More

Omega Institute Energy as a Life Guide: An Interview With Deborah King
An Interview With Deborah King
Omega: How would you describe energy healing to a five-year-old? Deborah: I would tell an adult or a child that you’re composed of energy. Your body feels solid, but it’s moving energy. We have lots of physics research to back this up. Sometimes the movement of all that energy becomes stagnant or off-kilter, and energy healing is a way of reestablishing balance. More

Dispelling Misconceptions About Yoga & Yoga Therapy
Many people who could benefit from yoga shy away due to misconceptions about what it is and isn't, or who can do it and who shouldn't. Here are some common misconceptions about yoga and yoga therapy. Yoga Isn't...Only for the Flexible & Fit Some people avoid yoga because they think it's only for people who can bend like Gumby. They think it's for the young, strong, and athletic—and if you look at pictures in magazines or sample some vigorous yoga classes you could easily get that impression. More

A Contemporary Shamanic Approach to Healing
Today our minds, our emotions, our relationships, and our bodies are out of kilter. We know it, but we tend to ignore it until something goes very wrong—a scary diagnosis, a broken relationship, the death of a loved one, or simply an inability to function harmoniously in everyday life. When things are a little bad, we read a self-help book or go to a workshop. When they're really bad, we bring in experts to fix the problem—oncologists to address cancer, neurologists to repair the brain, psychologists to help us find peace and understand our family of origin.

Omega Institute Mindfulness as a Healing Practice: An Interview With Sister Dang Nghiem
An Interview With Sister Dang Nghiem
Omega: Why is mindfulness so important for our times? Sister D: When I was in my second year of medical school, I had to make the decision whether to do a four-year program or a five-year program. I was stressing out about it, and in a dream I saw a lot of people on bicycles just plunging down a hill. I stopped at the top of the hill and recognized that there was a little girl sitting on my handlebars. I realized that if I were to plunge down the hill, that girl would fly off the handlebars and die, so I stopped. I didn’t go down the hill.  More
