Omega Institute Take a Stand In Your Life By Sitting Down to Meditate by Jon Kabat-Zinn
In its outward manifestation, meditation appears to involve either stopping, by parking the body in stillness that suspends activity, or giving oneself over to flowing movement. In either case, it is an embodiment of wise attention, an inward gesture undertaken for the most part in silence, a shift from doing to simply being. It is an act that may at first seem artificial but that we soon discover, if we keep at it, is ultimately one of pure love for the life unfolding within us and around us. More

Omega Institute Are You Cooking With the Right Oils?
It’s dinnertime. You’ve chopped the onions, turned on the stove, and you need to add some oil to the pan. But which one to use? The average American consumes more than 53 pounds of cooking oil a year, which means your choice of oils has a big impact on your health. Most nights you probably reach for a vegetable oil (like canola or olive), but not all oils are created equal, and different oils are better suited to different types of cooking. More

The Basics of Probiotics, Prebiotics & Fermented Foods
“I’ve got a gut feeling about this.” “The thought makes me nauseous.” “I’ve got butterflies in my stomach.” These common phrases intuitively express what science now recognizes: there is a direct connection between the brain and the gut. Some scientists even refer to the gut as the second, or "hidden" brain. More
Omega Institute Feel Good Now: How to Boost Your Oxytocin Level By Yourself
How to Boost Your Oxytocin Level
Have you ever perused The Daily Puppy during a stressful day at work? Have you ever felt that if someone just gave you a hug everything would be better?  Your instincts are spot on.

Omega Institute Raising a Digital Native
What the Research Says About Parenting in the Age of Technology
Richie Byrne is the warm-up comedian for The Dr. Oz Show. One of his funniest jokes is when he asks people to turn off their cell phones, “If you don't know how to turn off your phone, don’t worry, we have a 9-year-old standing by to help you.” Today's children have grown up surrounded by technology and they seem to understand how to work any device. They're called digital natives. More
The news. Family. Work. Stress. Life. Many things can trigger a response that knocks you out of being centered and calm and sends you tumbling into an unpleasant emotion like anger, jealousy, or even sadness. It doesn't matter how often you meditate or how long you can hold a headstand, we are all triggered by something, sometime. It's a part of life. The question is, are you able to recognize when you feel triggered and then access tools for working with these emotions? More
