Women & Power Conference at Omega

Teresa Kennedy with Global Change Scholars at Omega

THE BUZZ: From September 21st through 23rd, 2012, I attended the Women & Power Conference at Omega’s Rhinebeck, NY campus. It was a gathering of dynamic women from various sectors – from playwright Eve Ensler and actress Sally Field to media powerhouse Pat Mitchell and Planned Parenthood Federation President Cecile Richards. I was super impressed by Majora Carter’s presentation of her work on sustainable development in the Bronx. I knew of her work but to hear her walk through it was wonderful.

Omega’s Being Yoga Conference

Rev. Jaganath Carrera and Masood Ali Khan

THE BUZZ: On August 17th and 18th, 2012, I attended Omega’s 2012 Being Yoga Conference Retreat at their beautiful Rhinebeck, New York campus. Just two hours from Manhattan by train, Omega is a wonderful place for renewal. The setting is serene, the food is healthy and delicious, and all of the programs are focused on self-development.
