Omega Institute Parenthood Is a River of Worry & Love By Elizabeth Lesser
If you would like to be broken open—if you want to pursue a Phoenix Process of the highest order—I would recommend raising children. Parenthood is a clumsy yet majestic dance in the flames. When you parent you fall in love with a person who is always changing into someone else, and whom you know will leave you. Yet most parents will say that they have never given themselves to anyone as fully as they have to their children. Parenting is a career with the crazy-making job requirement of simultaneously surrendering to and letting go of someone you love, over and over and over again. More
Omega Institute Deepen Your Relationships With Nonviolent Communication
Remember playing "telephone" as a kid? It's the game where one person whispers a phrase to someone else, and it gets whispered down a line of children until the last one says the phrase out loud and everyone laughs at how much it has changed.  Sometimes relationships can feel like we're stuck in that game. You say one thing, but your partner hears something completely different. Your boss gives you feedback, but all you can hear is criticism. You try to express your feelings, but you just sound mean and petty. More
Omega Institute Healing Relationships, Not People by Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt
Focusing on the "Space Between" to Create Real Love
We need to answer the call to become each other’s healers. It means that you avoid, at all cost, re-wounding each other so that you can become true advocates for each other. Only for the strong-willed, this is an art—an honor—a sacred duty. Creating Safe Space More
Omega Institute Can Past Lives Help Heal Current Relationships? by Brian Weiss
Omega: How can past-life regression help heal and strengthen present-day relationships? Brian: We come in again and again with the same souls. So, your grandmother may come back as your grandson, and you might recognize her. When we experience love at first sight, we've been connected with that person in past lives. The memories from these other lives can still be fresh in many ways. When we remember and release, it helps to heal that current relationship.  More

An Interview With Alex Grey and Allyson Grey, Part 2
Omega: How do your creative and spiritual lives intertwine—are they separate or one in the same? Alex and Allyson: Our creative and spiritual lives are completely entangled and indistinguishable. Integrating creativity as spiritual practice is the core teaching of CoSM. Artists working together form an accelerator of inspired energies that enhance and catalyze evolution. We have three bodies of work between us: Alex's art, Allyson's art, and CoSM, a social sculpture we share with a community. More

Omega Institute How Friends Make Life Better
Abbott and Costello. Laverne and Shirley. Kirk and Spock. Bert and Ernie. Thelma and Louise. Chandler and Joey. Harry and Hermione. These iconic fictional friendships, depending on our age, hold special places in our memories. Whether these duos helped us laugh or had relationships we wanted to emulate in our own lives, they illustrate the value we find in friendship. Friends can offer a listening ear, a hand to hold, or hug when you need it. But friendships are fading these days. More
Omega Institute The Best Gifts in Life Are Free
The saying “the best things in life are free” can easily be forgotten when it comes to giving gifts and expressing love to people in our life. The pressure to give expensive gifts has become part of our cultural fabric, but there are other ways you can choose to express your love. Gifts come in many forms, and some of the best cost little or are free. In fact, sometimes it’s the gifts that come from the heart, including small acts of kindness or love, that can have the biggest impact. More
