Our campus is closed in 2020. But we're still here for you. Join Omega Conversations with favorite teachers, and our private  Facebook Group community.

In this gathering we embrace an understanding that life itself is sacred ceremony. As we bring lasting healing to ourselves and the hoop of being, we recognize life is not a drama in which we are victims, but rather that we are in a creative unfolding of the teachings of our lives. When we come from this honest place, we honor the truth of who we are.

By participating in ceremonies, including the sweat lodge (a powerful purification and prayer practice with roots found in many of the world’s wisdom traditions), we establish a deeper connection with the receptive and responsive universe. We become a conduit for spirit moving into the world and are reminded that the altar is within the sanctuary of our hearts.

When it is time to reenter our lives after our collaborative journey, we move into the world uplifted, present, and able to stand in our center—that place where all directions meet, and from where all actions can unfold.

Thursday afternoon there will be extended hours for the sweat lodge, an ancient ceremony of purification. It is not imperative that you enter the sweat lodge to participate in the ceremony. Sitting beside the fire outside is a place for prayer and is connected to the whole. The lodge will be introduced with time for questions before the ceremony begins.

There may be also optional extended hours on an additional afternoon and early morning. Check posted schedules on arrival.

Please bring with you:

  • Journal and pen
  • Water bottle (if you have one)
  • Towel
  • Appropriate sweat lodge attire (for men: shorts; for women: below the knee length skirt or sarong and modest blouse, or dress)

Please note Thursday afternoon there will be extended hours for the sweat lodge. There may be also optional extended hours on an additional afternoon and early morning. Check posted schedules on arrival.
