Omega Institute Singing the Lessons of African-American History With Ysaye Barnwell
An Interview With Ysaye Barnwell
Omega: What was it like to grow up in a musical household? Ysaye: My father taught piano, violin, and viola in our home, and I wanted to do what they were doing. I remember at two and a half I had this little, tiny violin, and he started teaching me how to hold it. I was around music all the time and played in the orchestra in junior high school and then high school, and sang in a choir while I was in junior high school. It was a community choir, and all we did was spirituals. More
Omega Institute Staying in Love by Playing in Love by Richard Borofsky and Antra Kalnins Borofsky
An Interview With Richard Borofsky and Antra Kalnins Borofsky
Omega: How can couples cultivate more playfulness in their relationship? Richard: People do take themselves much too seriously. I have a title for a book that I'd like to write, called We're Married, But It's Not Serious. More
An Interview With Stan Tatkin
Omega: Why do you say we're wired more for war than love, and what does that mean for relationships? Stan: We have more centers in the brain that are responsible for keeping us alive and preserving the species than we do for attachment. But attachment is part of survival, so we need to love because we need to attach to at least one other human being for survival. I know it sounds contradictory, but those are both there, and they're both linked to survival. More
Omega Institute Reviving Musical Treasures: An Interview With Jimmie Dale Gilmore
An Interview With Jimmie Dale Gilmore
Omega: What instrument would you still like to learn how to play? Jimmie: I would love to play the piano. I always regret that I didn’t learn the piano. I also would like to play the electric guitar. Omega: Do you match your music to your mood or can music dictate a mood? More
Omega Institute Let's...Um..Talk About...Um...Sex: An Interview With Cyndi Darnell
An Interview With Cyndi Darnell
Omega: Why do you think it’s so difficult for us to talk about sex? Cyndi: I’m very interested in why sex is still such a taboo topic. Sex, sexuality, and connection are part of the human condition. Yet no other aspect of the human condition is as heavily policed or moralized or suppressed as sex and sexuality. More
Omega Institute Help Teach Kids Sustainability
"If we want a sustainable future, we have to educate for a sustainable future," says Jaimie Cloud, founder of the Cloud Institute for Sustainability Education. And if you are a parent who wants your child to attend a school that educates for sustainability, you may have to help your school make the transition to this kind of curriculum and instructional practice by encouraging them to become an early adopter/leader.

Omega Institute Yoga for Getting Free by Ram Dass
Since we all spend so much time in our relationships, why not turn them into a yoga for getting free? Living a spiritual life is a strategy for working on yourself for the benefit of all beings. That’s another way of saying that the optimum thing you can do for someone else is to work on yourself—not out of some idealistic sense of altruism, but because getting to oneness for yourself means resolving your sense of separateness to where we’re all family.

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
The Courage to Choose: An Interview With Elizabeth Gilbert, Part 3
An Interview With Elizabeth Gilbert, Part 3
Omega: Women in the 21st century are forging new paths while being held to impossible “women's magazine” standards—“perfection” and “balance” are words you encourage women not to use. The Signature of All Things tells the 19th century life story of a rare, intrepid woman scientist. Do you consider yourself political in your writing? Elizabeth: Somebody asked if Signature of All Things is a feminist novel and I said, “I'm never going to write anything that's not a feminist screed in some way or another, explicitly so or not.” More
Omega Institute What Death Can Teach Us About Living: An Interview With Anita Moorjani
An Interview With Anita Moorjani
Omega: You have described your near-death experience as a “realm of clarity and expansiveness.” Can you tell us what it was like? Anita: I felt total clarity and a sense of awakening. It was as if everything I believed and bought into about myself disappeared. It didn't matter how many degrees I had, or what my race, religion, or cultural background were—it all disappeared. There was no need for labels. More
