Daniel Rechtschaffen, a therapist and pioneer in bringing mindfulness into schools, explains that mindfulness isn't just something to regulate behavior. To really make a difference in kids' lives, educators must first practice mindfulness themselves. Watch the full talk: The Educator's Role in Creating Mindful Kids. More
Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org, recognizes that taking collective action is one of the most powerful things we can do when it comes to combating climate change. He urges us to join together with others in meaningful movements that are large enough to matter.    More

Top executive coach Richard Leider exposes the 3 top myths about finding your life's purpose. More
Top executive coach Richard Leider interviewed thousands of people over 65 and asked them what they'd do differently if they could live life over. They said they'd be more reflective and authentic, take more risks, and have a clear purpose. More
Educator Linda Lantieri explains how research shows social and emotional learning can improve results on standardized reading tests better than any other reading program. More
Educator Linda Lantieri argues that teaching kids mindfulness and social and emotional learning practices could someday result in doing away with standardized testing in schools. But to get there, she warns, we need to understand that these practices aren't just for managing behavior—when practiced deeply and steadily, they produce a change of heart from within that can lead kids to become more kind and compassionate people. More
Richard Leider, ranked by Forbes as one of the “Top 5” most respected executive coaches, redefines what purpose means in your life by asking a simple, straightforward question: "What gets you out of bed in the morning?"   Check out the workshop based on his classic best selling book: The Power of Purpose   More

The Power of Joy-Based Spending & Personal Finances
Budgeting. There, I said it. How did that word make you feel? If you are like most people you found yourself tensing up and feeling resistance. What if I told you there was another way to manage your cash flow, one that works with (not against) the flow of the universe. Would you be interested in learning more? More
Bonnie St. John stands on stage with arms open
Lessons From Tennis in Stress Reduction & Relaxation
Our approach to resilience differs from traditional notions of resilience in an important respect. When we tell people that our work is about helping our clients stay resilient, they often say, “I know someone who is very resilient; she bounced back from ___________.” You can fill in the blank: cancer, hurricane, divorce, or any other major ordeal that qualifies as something difficult to recover from. These extreme scenarios can be devastating, and a lot of support is available to help you manage these catastrophic events. More

Be Skeptical, But Learn to Listen
The fifth agreement is: be skeptical, but learn to listen. Be skeptical because most of what you hear isn’t true. You know that humans speak with symbols and that symbols aren’t the truth. Symbols are only the truth because we agree, not because they are really the truth. More
For Children Ages 6-12
1. Connect: Checking in With My Feelings Take a quiet moment for yourself to investigate how you are feeling. Sit in a way that is steady and comfortable. Choose whether to put your hands in your lap, by your sides, or place a hand on your heart or your belly—whatever feels right to you. Focus on taking a few slow and steady breaths, and then ask yourself what emotions you are feeling right now. More
An Interview With Sharon Landrith
Omega: More people seem to be "waking up" spiritually than ever before, yet there also seems to be more injustice in the world. How can those who are waking up be effective game changers and not be overwhelmed by fear, anger, or sadness? More
Small Adjustments to “Better Our Best”
Micro-resilience isn’t about weakness. On the contrary, small adjustments help us “better our best” and perform closer to our world-class capability. Repeatedly working to the point of collapse isn’t going to be good enough to get the job done at the level we need. Our bleary eyes and foggy brain eventually bring us to the point of diminishing returns. We begin to introduce errors and inconsistencies that require even more effort to repair. Conversely, strategic recoveries along the way allow us to achieve a new and higher level of the all-in commitment we value so highly. More
“Papa, what’s your battle plan?” My granddaughter Natalia has asked me that question for the three years we’ve been having imaginary galactic battles. Her army is mainly Pokémon, popular characters that come to us from Japan. They have strengths and weaknesses, and the capacity to “evolve” and gain in ability and talent. Natalia is also aided by the usual assortment of additional friends: fairies, ponies, and favorite stuffed animals all lined up on the side of goodness and truth. More
An Interview With Richard Michaels
Omega: How can coaching play a role in social change? Richard: Meaningful social change is built on a foundation of connection and understanding. Deep listening and empowering questions are two coaching tools that support these basic and profound tools. More
An Interview With Elena Brower
Omega: When you first started teaching, you've said you were afraid to speak from your heart. How did that change for you? Elena: That fear resulted from the fact that I wasn’t being honest about the life I was leading. I was teaching yoga, and breathing, and sitting, and wasn’t always practicing. It was painful to teach the work so well and not be practicing myself.  Omega: Why do you think so many people hide their true selves? More
