AWAKENING THE BEST IN THE HUMAN SPIRIT…for almost 40 years, these words have guided us at Omega Institute in everything we do. When we are developing curriculum and choosing teachers, as we work together as a staff, as we serve our guests and care for our campus and land, we ask ourselves this question: what can we do to help people activate their most creative, courageous, loving, and wise potential? More
Holiday meals in the United States tend to rely on traditional family recipes and comfort foods, like mashed potatoes, stuffing, and pumpkin or pecan pie, but they can also be a time to honor different cultures, connect with your friends, and expand your palate. Stephanie Meade, founder and editor of InCultureParent, says that for many years she and her family have celebrated Thanksgiving with friends who are not American, and now the holiday doesn’t seem complete without a bunch of people from other countries. More
Telling stories is one of the earliest and most intimate of human traditions. We teach and learn through stories. They captivate us and preserve our customs and cultural experiences.

book cover for Marrow by Elizabeth Lesser
Love of self, love of other: two strands in the love braid. I have braided these strands together in all sorts of relationships, in varying degrees of grace and ineptitude. I’ve messed up in both directions: being self-centered, being a martyr; not knowing my own worth, not valuing the essential worth of the other. To love well is to get the balance right. It’s the work of a lifetime.  More

Omega Institute When Brotherhood Is Tested by Terrorism by David Kaczynski
I’ll start with the premise that a brother shows you who you are—and also who you are not. He’s an image of the self at one remove, but also a representation of the “other.” In a universe of unlimited spatial and temporal dimensions, you are brought together with your brother in a unique and specific consanguinity. You come from the same womb. Your family has a certain flavor and smell unlike any other. It has an ethos, perhaps even a mythology all its own.  More

Stop Being Bullied by Your Core Beliefs
Studies have shown that, as far back as in the womb, we make decisions about who we are and what’s possible for us to have (or not have) as it relates to receiving happy, healthy love into our lives. Conclusions like “I am not wanted,” or “I am not enough,” are the assumptions we may have made up as children, when we were far too young to understand that it was our caregivers, and not we ourselves, who were in some way inadequate and deficient in their abilities.   More
Heart hovering over football pitch
Building respect for one another is an ongoing task for the intimate team. Living with another person can be challenging at times, to say the least. It is very easy to criticize our partner, in our mind or face-to-face. They can disappoint us, frustrate us, annoy us, and even pester or nag us. There are always two sides to each of these complaints, and couples spend too much time trying to prove the “rightness” of their side. More
