An Interview With Tara Brach
We seem to have an uneasy relationship with the body in Western culture. We are especially averse to pain, discomfort and aging. How can we learn to be compassionate and more at home in the body regardless of our physical condition? More

Being Black in Buddhist Community
There is no doubt in my mind that Buddhism is a religion. It has rituals, traditions, schools, and hierarchical structures. However, Buddhist philosophy, in its purest form, is just a set of principles to help you become awake to the life that you have so that you can live it more completely. If we go back to the original ideas and strip away the extras, if we take the “ism” out of what a brother named Buddha taught, then it's no more and no less than a way of planning your life. More
Omega Institute What Are Liberating Structures? Creating a Culture of Innovation
Creating a Culture of Innovation
Earlier this year a poll showed 17 percent of employees would prefer watching paint dry to attending another meeting. Eight percent would prefer to get a root canal. Nearly half of respondents said they’d like to do anything other than sitting in your standard business check-in. More

Giving back and volunteering is one of those things that most of us rarely think about unless there is a disaster in our backyard—like 9/11 or Hurricane Sandy. In those instances, the entire city of New York came together and became a community of people helping people. They didn’t ask for anything back; they simply gave to others and the city was closer than ever. "Once you experience the feelings of elation volunteering gives, you’ll want to continue to seek that feeling." Miki Agrawal More
Omega Institute The Power of Unplugging
Why You May Want to Try a "Digital Detox"
If you are interested in being more productive at work, having better relationships, sleeping soundly, and having a slimmer waistline, it might be time to unplug. Research now confirms what many of us suspected—the convenience of our mobile devices comes with an energy-draining price. The good news is we can reclaim our energy by unplugging, whether it be for a few hours before bed, the whole weekend, or longer. It's called a "digital detox," or going "screen-free," and it means you turn off your smartphones, tablets, laptops, TVs, and computers for a set amount of time. More
Boy with a boat
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
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

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. 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
