Omega Institute Live Dirty & Eat Clean: An Interview With Robynne Chutkan
An Interview With Robynne Chutkan
Omega: Your mantra is "live dirty and eat clean." What do you mean by that? 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? Robynne: I feel my best when I hit this triad: More

Omega Institute Unlock the Body's Medicine With Yoga
An Interview With Madan Bali
Omega: Can you describe the basic principle of your yoga practice? Madan: I’ve been teaching, researching, and coming up with new insights since 1969. Yoga has much more to offer than we think. We have the finest technology available on this planet in our own body. The body writes its own prescription from moment to moment. Just think about when we go into deep sleep, there’s nothing to be done, nothing to be fixed. Everything is being done for us. More

Omega: The “New Economy” has moved beyond freelancing and is flooded by terms describing it variously as: gig, sharing, informal, barter, contract, and online. What does The National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) mean by “caring economy” and “care” as a value—not just a monetary value? More
Omega Institute Voices of Color From the Food Justice Movement
Food justice is the idea that everyone should have access to food that is fresh, healthy, and grown nearby. It also includes the principles that the local community is involved from farm to table and that workers are fairly treated and compensated.  More
Omega Institute A Coach’s Perspective on Body Wisdom by Richard Michaels
We can use our body as a fortress or as a cathedral—protecting ourselves from the possibility of pain or danger, or opening ourselves to the beauty and wisdom in every cell. We’re taught to trivialize our bodily sensations because we’re afraid of suffering, eros, or narcissism. So we close ourselves off to our deepest yearnings, our desires for love and freedom, our hunger for expressing from the deepest parts of ourselves. More
Omega Institute Facing Fear Helps Some Cancer Patients Live Longer by Kelly Turner
Among all the suppressed emotions Radical Remission survivors talk to me about releasing, fear is by far one of the most common discussed. Perhaps this is because fear is something we all have felt to some degree, whereas not everyone can relate to, for example, intensely held grief or resentment. The fear of death, in particular, is something we all must face at some point in our lives, and cancer patients are forced to face it the moment they hear the words, “You have cancer.” More
Omega Institute Body Image Is a Public Health Issue: A Call to Action From Jean Kilbourne
A Call to Action
Many mainstream ads for food and diet products normalize shame, guilt, bingeing, and purging. Eating has become divorced from hunger and nutrition in our culture. It’s difficult to find women, especially young women, who have really healthy attitudes toward food and their bodies. My own daughter has struggled with these issues. When she was a child, I did all the things I advise people to do. I talked with her very openly about body image, sex and sexuality, media literacy—everything! I created a safe place for her to ask me anything. She often attended my lectures. More
