In search of opportunities to better yourself and the world around you? Look no further than the more than 250 in-person and online workshops, conferences, retreats, and professional training opportunities Omega hosts in subject areas like creativity, leadership, sustainability, or spiritual and physical well-being, which are led by world-renowned teachers, such as Pema Chödrön, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Justin Michael Williams, and Kate Tellers and The Moth.

“We believe the well-being of each of us is deeply connected to the well-being of all living things,” says Robert “Skip” Backus, chief executive officer at Omega. “Our 2022 season brings with it opportunities to learn and practice those things that give us reason for hope—personally and together as a human family.”

Attendees of Omega’s workshops and R&R Retreats can nourish themselves with three mostly plant-based artisanal meals, sourced primarily from local farms and sustainable vendors. Also open to guests is the Wellness Center, which offers more than 40 different services in everything from massage to acupuncture to Reiki, as well as other special services to support your experience.
