For social entrepreneurs and innovative business-builders and nonprofit leaders, the dreamers and doers, the thinkers, the visionary world-changers, creators and catalysts.

Is that you? Then you should attend.

We start with a brief application. We want to make sure this gathering is a good fit for you and the work you do. And we want to make sure we create a welcoming, trusting space with a mix of people offering a range of perspectives. That’s why we ask a few questions, up front.

We strongly encourage participants to stay at Omega for the weekend to create a deeper, more immersive experience. If you choose not to lodge with us, though, there's a $50 commuter fee, which includes meals and use of campus facilities for the entire weekend.

Lodgers and commuters alike must call in to register at Omega before the program starts, but please wait until you get confirmation from us.

In addition to our own agenda, you can explore Omega's daily open classes in yoga, tai chi, meditation, and movement. Evenings at Omega include concerts, films, and workshops. You also have access to canoeing and kayaking on their private lake; basketball and tennis; nature trails; the Ram Dass Library, Sanctuary, Sauna, Wellness Center, Café, Bookstore and the Omega Center for Sustainable Living (OCSL).
