Founded in 1977, Omega Institute for Holistic Studies is the nation's most trusted source for wellness and personal growth. As a nonprofit organization, Omega offers diverse and innovative educational experiences that inspire an integrated approach to personal and social change. Located on 195 acres in the beautiful Hudson Valley, Omega welcomes more than 23,000 people to its workshops, conferences, and retreats in Rhinebeck, New York and at exceptional locations around the world.
Omega has been a pioneer in exploring, teaching, and embracing new ideas, focusing on health and wellness, personal spiritual growth, and self-awareness. Our main campus in Rhinebeck, New York is designed to be a healing center, a peaceful oasis in a hurried world. You can relax, rejuvenate, and feel at home in the midst of nature's bounty and a community of warm, caring people.
Individual health and wellness, personal spiritual growth, and self-awareness, however, are not enough if others are suffering and the world is out of balance. To this end, we are also leading the way in creating a sustainable world. As an environmental steward, Omega's commitment to sustainability includes recycling and conservation, supporting sustainable agriculture, and reducing greenhouse gases through shuttle services and ride sharing. We're now launching a new project to bring all our sustainability initiatives under one roof: The Omega Center for Sustainable Living. The center will include a classroom, a water garden, a constructed wetland, and a state-of-the-art filtration system called the Eco Machine that will treat our wastewater.
