Workshop Proposal

Thank you for your interest in teaching at Omega!

Please read the information below to assist you in preparing your proposal.

How does Omega develop its workshops?

The majority of Omega's programs come from in-house research conducted by our programming department, Initiatives and Centers, rather than from unsolicited proposals. Our research explores current trends in the fields of holistic health & wellness, psychology, spirituality, creative expression, relationships, leadership & sustainability. In addition, we carefully read our participant feedback, both for evaluations of current teachers and for interest in new topics and teachers.

What kind of teacher is Omega looking for?

Omega is the largest and most successful institution of its kind in North America.

We are interested in and always seek:

  • the original founder of any particular discipline (if they are still living), rather than their students
  • published authors, scholars, artists and performers with established careers and reputations
  • experienced health professionals with solid links to legitimate institutions
  • bona fide spiritual teachers and healers from ancient or traditional lineages & cultures; as well as brand new modalities
  • an original idea or new theme, or a unique individual with a remarkable story
  • teachers with a marketing reach and large social media presence

Omega primarily offers weekend, 5-day, & 7-day in-person workshops at our Rhinebeck, New York campus, as well as short, live virtual workshops called Omega Teacher's Studio, and some virtual on-demand programs.  

If you meet the above qualifications and are interested in offering a workshop, it is best to review the current offerings listed on our site to get an idea of the kinds of topics offered before filling out the proposal below.
