I attended a life-changing workshop that was worth every penny, and I enjoyed the grounds at Omega. I just don't understand why accommodation is so expensive there. My single dorm room was adequate, as was the shared bathroom, but barely. A lot of the structures...More

I was attending a workshop by Dr Brian Weiss at Omega. Omega Institute is a wonderful place, extremely suitable for the workshop I was attending. It is very spiritual and peaceful. It is located amongst nature and makes you feel rejuvenated.

I was an outlier here - signed up for an excellent painting workshop, but not overnighting on campus. Guests and staff could not have been friendlier or more relaxed and relaxing, but for an omnivore, the food was a challenge. Worse still was the incredibly...More

I am an omnivore and I felt extremely deprived here. They require you to pay up front to use their compound on top of the cost of your course fee. They are very friendly to the gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan life styles but not...More
