We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

This week at Omega Costa Rica, explore your natural intuitive abilities, create a revolution of consciousness, or experience the healing power of qigong. Immerse yourself in ecstatic dance or restorative yoga, or learn to find fulfillment in the present moment.

Workshops meet each day (except Wednesday) in the morning and afternoon. Sample from a variety of programs with Omega’s acclaimed teachers, choosing a new workshop each day, if you like. Or, abandon your schedule, head to the beach to rest and relax, and take time to enjoy the fun and invigorating evening activities at Blue Spirit.

Sample from any or all of the following workshops during Week 3.

Medium, Psychic, Healer
Finding Your True Path
James Van Praagh
Everyone is born with natural paranormal abilities. You might be a healer, psychic, medium—or all three! In this hands-on workshop, master medium and spiritual teacher James Van Praagh shares the key to determining your soul destiny and the reason you are on this earth today.  You’ll leave this idyllic setting with a renewed sense of your place in the universe, a stronger connection to friends in the spirit world, and a greater awareness of your special gifts.

A Revolution in Consciousness
John Perkins
We have entered a revolutionary time in history. Indigenous shamans from the Amazon to the Himalayas prophesied these times and foresaw a revolution in consciousness. People everywhere are now awakening to the fact that we must transform our ways of life if we want the world to prosper and move in a healthy direction. John Perkins—a trained shaman and a former "economic hit man" who knows the system from the inside—shares inspirational perspectives on the current problems and offers new solutions. Discover ways to constructively participate in the revolution, realize your personal dreams, and help create a sustainable, just, and spiritually fulfilling world.

The Healing Power of Qi
Qigong & Tai Chi Practices for Life
Roger Jahnke, OMD
Qigong is the ancient Chinese art of awakening and cultivating the vital energy of the universe within you. Anyone can learn to focus their connection to qi (chi), or vital energy, to manifest radiant health, experience the light of their eternal spiritual nature, and alchemically transform their life. Dynamic teacher Roger Jahnke—a doctor of Chinese medicine and author of The Healing Promise of Qi and The Healer Within—guides you through accessible principles of Chinese medicine and easy qigong practices you can remember and use for a lifetime.

Yoga for Rejuvenation
Marianela Ortiz

In this rejuvenating week of hatha yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Gaia Yoga, and chanting, you transform old patterns stored in the body, recover your deepest inner wisdom, and rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit. Learn to activate Kundalini energy through asanas and other dynamic movements. Use yogic sounds and sacred chants to elevate and accelerate cellular vibration, all while stimulating physical, mental, and emotional detoxification and renewal.

5Rhythms® Movement as Meditation
Amber Ryan

Within each moment rests the seed of awakening. In each breath we have an opportunity to seek refuge within ourselves or to fully connect with another. The 5Rhythms® practice allows us a space to explore the primary levels of connection to oneself, one another, and the collective. Dance by dance we show up just as we are awakening to our truths, dancing ourselves inside-out to return to a simple and profound state of being. The 5Rhythms—flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical, and stillness—are a moving meditation practice created by Gabrielle Roth. They are designed to bring out each individual’s creative potential as well as being a catalyst for deep healing in the body, mind, and soul.

The Path to Longevity
Create More Time for Life

Stephan Rechtschaffen, MD
Physician, author, and cofounder of Omega, Stephan Rechtschaffen, teaches integrative approaches to longevity, time, stress reduction, and well-being. Learn the fundamental basis to attain and maintain greater vitality and long life. Through inspiring lectures, guided visualizations, and meditation practices, the author of Timeshifting and coauthor of Vitality and Wellness, shows you how to lead a more balanced and integrative life while coming deeper into the present moment.

Cultivate Your Life Force
Waterfall Qigong Style

Steven Michael Pague
Delve into the mysteries of qigong through a blend of easy-to-learn, yet profound movements designed to increase vitality, strengthen immune function, enhance creativity, and achieve harmony and balance, and much more. Join in and kindle the fire of your inner smile, align yourself between heaven and earth and find the extraordinary in the ordinary. While enjoying practices of movement and stillness, we also learn about the history, philosophy, and healing principals of qigong. As streams gather to form a river or waterfall, Waterfall Qigong is a joining of several lineages and teaching styles. Garner and take home what you will need to develop, or add to, a practice of your own.
