A Women's Retreat

Many of us did not receive “basic training” about what it means to be a woman. We know what a woman is expected to “do,” but we don’t have an understanding of how a woman can “be”—for herself and within herself.

Omega Institute When Brotherhood Is Tested by Terrorism by David Kaczynski
I’ll start with the premise that a brother shows you who you are—and also who you are not. He’s an image of the self at one remove, but also a representation of the “other.” In a universe of unlimited spatial and temporal dimensions, you are brought together with your brother in a unique and specific consanguinity. You come from the same womb. Your family has a certain flavor and smell unlike any other. It has an ethos, perhaps even a mythology all its own.  More

Stop Being Bullied by Your Core Beliefs
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
Omega Institute As in Sports, So in Love by Joel Feldman
Building respect for one another is an ongoing task for the intimate team. Living with another person can be challenging at times, to say the least. It is very easy to criticize our partner, in our mind or face-to-face. They can disappoint us, frustrate us, annoy us, and even pester or nag us. There are always two sides to each of these complaints, and couples spend too much time trying to prove the “rightness” of their side. More

footprints in the sand
Sometimes our relationship with our parents is strong and loving, yet we still find ourselves unable to explain the difficult feelings we carry. We often assume that the problem originates inside us, and if we only dig deep enough, we’ll discover its source. Until we uncover the actual triggering event in our family history, we can relive fears and feelings that don’t belong to us—unconscious fragments of a trauma—and we will think they’re ours. Todd’s Story More
Omega Institute: Helping Kids Settle Into Divorce by Lisa Spiegel and Anastasia Higginbotham
Moving back and forth between homes brings a heightened jumble of feelings for all involved. There may be excitement to see a missed parent and a loved bedroom, sadness at leaving the other parent, and annoyance about the logistical gymnastics of having two homes.   Kids often misbehave during this time and parents worry it is a sign of a difficult visit with the other parent, or take it personally, believing their child isn’t glad to see them.  The most common cause of acting out in the transition time is that the switch is hard—plain and simple.

shadow of 4 people holding hands
In this school called life, we will take various classes, which involve subjects or experiences we signed up for while still in Spirit. Before our incarnation, we choose the life we think will afford us the best opportunities and/or challenges to help us hone our skills in practicing the energy of love. For most souls, much of the curriculum is defined by the relationships they will experience on Earth. These relationships will present opportunities to learn valuable lessons that the soul wouldn't receive any other way. More
Omega Institute Singing the Lessons of African-American History With Ysaye Barnwell
An Interview With Ysaye Barnwell
Omega: What was it like to grow up in a musical household? Ysaye: My father taught piano, violin, and viola in our home, and I wanted to do what they were doing. I remember at two and a half I had this little, tiny violin, and he started teaching me how to hold it. I was around music all the time and played in the orchestra in junior high school and then high school, and sang in a choir while I was in junior high school. It was a community choir, and all we did was spirituals. More
