With the tagline, “Awakening the best in the human spirit,” there’s a lot to love about the Omega Institute. Located in idyllic Rhinebeck, NY, Omega offers weekend and weeklong seminars covering topics like Mind, Body, Spirit; Health & Healing; Relationships and Family; Leadership & Work; and Sustainable Living. I don’t know of anyone who returns from an Omega workshop disappointed. Seriously. There’s something for every kind of wellness seeker. Here’s a sample of some upcoming workshops that might be perfect for you, but check out their full roster!
1. Insight Meditation for Beginners – Geared towards beginners, but also great for those looking for inspiration to add to existing practices, and for professionals who want to share techniques with clients. Insight Meditation, also know as Vipassana Meditation, is an ancient form of meditation where emphasis is placed on grounding our attention in the present moment.
2. Omega Wellness Weekend — This is the perfect way to get a sample of what Omega is all about. In this weekend, learn from three experts about holistic well-being. Topics will include: naturopathic and functional medicine, food and nutrition, and intuition. The goal of this weekend is for you to find inner balance and gain knowledge of what you need to thrive.
3. Meridian Yoga (The Art of Energy Flow) – This workshop is all about unblocking energy. When our energy is blocked, we’re not functioning at the optimal wellness level that we could be. Learn about your body’s energy pathways and how to release stored tension with techniques including yoga, qi gong, breathing exercises and shiatsu message. The result? You know when you feel so good standing on your own two feet — literally and figuratively? There you go!
