OMEGA INSTITUTE OFFERING 5 FREE LECTURES

Jan. 3, 2002 – Omega Institute in conjunction with the St. John-based People Moving Forward Foundation will again this year hold free "Evenings with Omega" lectures for residents and visitors. The hour-long presentations will take place on Mondays, Jan. 7 through Feb. 4, in the third-floor community meeting area of the Marketplace in Cruz Bay.
All lectures will begin at 7:30 p.m. For those wishing to attend from St. Thomas, a shuttle will meet the 7 p.m. ferry from Red Hook and return to the ferry dock in time to make the 9 p.m. boat back to Red Hook. There's a $2 fee for the shuttle service.
The institute, based in Rhinebeck, N.Y., presents a series of weekly seminars at Maho Bay Camps every winter. For many years, speakers involved in the seminars also have devoted an hour to speaking to the local community.
"This is an opportunity to experience world-renowned authors and experts," said Allison Smith, who heads the People Moving Forward Foundation. The speakers are people who have written bestselling books about holistic health, she said. The offerings:
Jan. 7 — Stephan Rechtschaffen kicks off the series with his talk on "Timeshifting." Rechtschaffen, who co-founded Omega Institute, teaches holistic approaches to time, longevity, stress reduction and well being.
Jan. 14 — Krishna Das will speak on "Devotional Chanting." A longtime student of various Indian spiritual traditions, he will focus on the power of chanting.
Jan. 21 — Pat Love will speak on "Relationship Awareness," guiding her audience toward self-discovery through relationships.
Jan. 28 — John Perkins will discuss "Shamanism." He is a noted author and researcher who has worked with indigenous people around the world.
Feb. 4 — Margo Arnand will speak on "The Art of Sexual Ecstasy," a look at ways to expand and contain one's sexual energy.
The weeklong Omega Institute seminars at Maho Bay Camps also are open to local residents, who may attend for the whole week or just single workshops. Speakers include those tapped for the "Evenings at Omega" plus a roster of many others authorities well known in their fields. Registration is $35 for one half-day workshop session, $70 for a full day, and $350 for the full week.
