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

American Buddhism & Diversity
When Being Black came out in 2000, I was chagrined by what I had done. I realized that, out of my love and appreciation for the dharma, I issued this invitation to people of color into a Buddhist American space that was not welcoming. Obviously there were pockets and exceptions—but for the most part, the Western Buddhist community did not want or know how to receive them. I had invited black folks to crash the private upper middle class party that was going on and it was just not wanted. Really, I was quite bereft for a while, feeling foolish and naïve. More

Omega Institute Finding Your Calling Is An Essential Life Skill by Richard Leider
I settle in to the taxi, hoping to get a bit of work done before my upcoming meeting. As the driver begins pulling away from the curb, I open my briefcase and take out a folder. Even as I try to settle in to my papers, I can see from the cabbie’s face in the rearview mirror that he wants to talk. “So, whatta you in town for?” he asks.  “I’m giving a speech. A presentation to some business people,” I say, hoping to make it sound uninteresting so the driver will leave me alone.  He doesn’t take the hint. “Oh yeah? What’s it about?” More

Omega Institute Thinking Outside of the "Man Box": An Interview With Tony Porter
An Interview With Tony Porter
Omega: What exactly is a “man box” and how does it serve, as well as inhibit, manhood?  Tony: The “man box” is how men have been collectively socialized to understand what it means to be a man.
