Geneen Roth’s pioneering books were among the first to link compulsive eating and perpetual dieting with deeply personal and spiritual issues that go far beyond food, weight, and body image. Roth believes that we eat the way we live, and that our relationship to food, money, and love is an exact reflection of our deepest held beliefs about ourselves, and the amount of joy, abundance, pain, and scarcity we believe we have (or are allowed) to have in our lives.

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
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

Omega Institute Accepting Your Truth: An Interview With Mark Nepo
An Interview With Mark Nepo
Omega: Is there a poem that inspired you to be a poet? Mark: The poetry of Pablo Neruda really inspired me. When I first read his work, I felt like, “I must belong to this tribe.” My oldest friend, Robert, who comes with me as a guest every year when I teach at Omega, introduced me to Neruda. I was so moved, I wouldn’t give him the book back. Omega: In 1987, you were diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma, which has greatly informed much of your work. What’s the first step toward healing?  More
Omega Institute Rewild Your Gut by Robynne Chutkan
Our ancestors had a symbiotic relationship with their microbes that evolved over millions of years and served them well. They were benevolent hosts to a dense jungle of microscopic creatures, including worms and other parasites that actually contributed to their health. Large predators and the absence of food were their main threats, not the hundreds of diseases that afflict us today. The irony is that as we’ve “unwilded” our bodies and our environment in an effort to become healthier, we’ve actually become a lot sicker in some important ways. More

Omega Institute Self-Test: Do You Have Food Intolerances? Avoid These 7 Common Allergans by JJ Virgin
Avoid These 7 Common Allergens
The more trouble you’ve had with losing weight and keeping it off, the more likely it is that food intolerance is at the root of your problem. Even if you’re not experiencing symptoms, highly reactive or high-food intolerance (high-FI) foods are almost certainly behind your struggles with weight loss. If yogurt, eggs, soymilk, and whole-wheat bread are a frequent part of your diet—and especially if you’re eating them every day—your system is overwhelmed with problem foods, and your immune system never really calms down.
