Omega Institute Energy as a Life Guide: An Interview With Deborah King
An Interview With Deborah King
Omega: How would you describe energy healing to a five-year-old? Deborah: I would tell an adult or a child that you’re composed of energy. Your body feels solid, but it’s moving energy. We have lots of physics research to back this up. Sometimes the movement of all that energy becomes stagnant or off-kilter, and energy healing is a way of reestablishing balance. More
Omega Institute What Yoga Is & Isn't: Overcoming Misconceptions About Yoga & Yoga Therapy by Timothy McCall
Overcoming Misconceptions About Yoga & Yoga Therapy
Many people who could benefit from yoga shy away due to misconceptions about what it is and isn't, or who can do it and who shouldn't. Here are some common misconceptions about yoga and yoga therapy. Yoga Isn't...Only for the Flexible & Fit Some people avoid yoga because they think it's only for people who can bend like Gumby. They think it's for the young, strong, and athletic—and if you look at pictures in magazines or sample some vigorous yoga classes you could easily get that impression. More
Omega Institute The Power of Affirmation by Michael Bernard Beckwith
When making affirmations, we don’t beg or manipulate something outside of ourselves to respond to our prayer; instead, we speak from that part of us that is inseparable from our Source. Affirmative statements activate the power within us to draw into our magnetic field that which we claim and affirm for ourselves, whether it’s something required to stabilize our life structures, or to move into the next stage of our evolution. Affirmation also assists us in removing subconscious blockages that would hinder fulfillment of our affirmative declarations. More
About three decades ago I spent a year as a Buddhist monk in Thailand. It was a very austere life, dedicated to meditation and simplicity. One of the trainings I practiced was to only take one meal a day from the food collected going on alms rounds early in the morning. More
Based on even a cursory reading of the news, or listening to anyone speak for more than five minutes, the mental health problem is now obviously at the pandemic scale. Random acts of violence, the lack of the obligation to make any sense, and a frantic feeling that seems to be soaking through society are just a few clues of its existence. More

Omega Institute Transform Your Core Beliefs About Love by Katherine Woodward Thomas
Studies have shown that, as far back as in the womb, we make decisions about who we are and what’s possible for us to have (or not have) as it relates to receiving happy, healthy love into our lives. Conclusions like “I am not wanted,” or “I am not enough,” are the assumptions we may have made up as children, when we were far too young to understand that it was our caregivers, and not we ourselves, who were in some way inadequate and deficient in their abilities.   More
Today our minds, our emotions, our relationships, and our bodies are out of kilter. We know it, but we tend to ignore it until something goes very wrong—a scary diagnosis, a broken relationship, the death of a loved one, or simply an inability to function harmoniously in everyday life. When things are a little bad, we read a self-help book or go to a workshop. When they're really bad, we bring in experts to fix the problem—oncologists to address cancer, neurologists to repair the brain, psychologists to help us find peace and understand our family of origin.

Omega Institute Mindfulness as a Healing Practice: An Interview With Sister Dang Nghiem
An Interview With Sister Dang Nghiem
Omega: Why is mindfulness so important for our times? Sister D: When I was in my second year of medical school, I had to make the decision whether to do a four-year program or a five-year program. I was stressing out about it, and in a dream I saw a lot of people on bicycles just plunging down a hill. I stopped at the top of the hill and recognized that there was a little girl sitting on my handlebars. I realized that if I were to plunge down the hill, that girl would fly off the handlebars and die, so I stopped. I didn’t go down the hill.  More
