"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.

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. The reality is that love is a state of being that comes from within. —Ram Dass More

Jean Kilbourne on Women & Media
Many mainstream media 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

A Call for Anti-racism
When my first book 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 the American Buddhism culture and it 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. More
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
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. It doesn’t mean that all men respond in the same way to this collective socialization but it does mean that all men have an understanding of this socialization. More

An Interview With Stephanie Coontz
Omega: You say marriage has changed more in the past 30 years than in the past 3,000 years. You’ve said that the very traits that make marriage in our contemporary society more rewarding have also made it less stable. How so? More

This is what the great choice comes down to—the great conflict between first-hand experience and tradition, between spontaneity and decorum, between compassion and obligation. Other life forms have no part in this. It’s strictly a human affair. The sapling doesn’t look to its elders for approval. It just grows toward the light. The bee feels its hunger and finds its honey. It doesn’t embark out of any sense of duty. When I speak of these things, distrustful minds, against all intention of getting involved, blurt out but we have to live in the real world. More
