I never knew about this place but got to spend a week here...I was so thrilled with the class I took and with the opportunity to study with such a famous person who truly transformed my life. I did stay off campus due to my age. They do have dorms and camping and expensive private rooms should you want the... More

A place for renewal and rejuvenation with a wide range of inspiring workshops to feed your soul. The onsite food is nutritious and the cafe has the best range of plant based snacks imaginable.

I've been to Omega three years in a row as an assistant to one of the main presenters and also as a guest presenter in each year. I've stayed in the dorms and now one of the cabins too. From the first time I stepped foot on the land there, and most of the times my feet are on the... More

The tour of the house was very good and the guide extremely knowledgable about the house and its history. Fortunately, it is air conditioned, which came in extremely handy during one of the hottest weekends in recent memory. The grounds are beautiful, but if going, take the house tour.

Great place to attend a workshop and change your attitude, learn something new, improve on who you are or what you want to achieve. Or, none of the above. After one night of workshopping, my husband and I blew off the activities and chose to people-watch from the cafe deck, drink copious amounts of great coffee, watch flowers grow, observe... More

Fairly well organized, friendly, good food, well placed seminar rooms. We enjoyed our visit. The price tag is a bit prohibitive for serial visits but it was well worth it. Very pleased!

After reviewing their website and reviews online, I was so excited for my trip here but then we checked in and after a long walk we finally made it to our small room with no tv, an uncomfortable bed with 2 thin pillows, ceiling fan and plug in fan (no ac), large dingy looking sink, stand up shower, dirty toilet...

The grounds of Omega are attractive, but hilly. Most of the buildings are utilitarian, but a couple were quite beautiful. You will be outdoors a lot, so it would be a good idea to bring sunscreen, insect repellant, and an umbrella. Poison ivy is everywhere, so stay on the trails. I was there for a reiki class and others were... More

Omega is a national treasure!! I've been a few times and always find new options, new experiences and new workshops. This time it was the Shadow Experience. Wonderful. Best part, there are tables in the dining room designated as "silence". When doing a lot of internal work, it is relaxing to sit in silence. I will be back again next... More
