The Omega Institute is heading back to New York City for its annual Omega NYC conference – and this time 16 teachers will be on hand at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers, April 20–22, 2012.

Also, for the first time ever, Omega plans to broadcast live from the Women & Happiness workshop, so people around the world can watch for free online as renowned author Brené Brown presents “The Anatomy of Joy.”

Omega NYC begins Friday evening at 8:00 p.m. with a keynote talk, “With An Open Heart,” by Elizabeth Lesser, author of “Broken Open” and co-founder of Omega, as well as a special performance by musician David Wilcox.
