OMA takes a spiritually-based, holistic approach to the wellbeing of individuals, families and the community. To this end we offer a variety of programs that deal with youth development, trauma care, health and wellbeing, and community concerns and action.
OMA’s current programs include:
Art in the Garden, centered around investment in the resiliency and social and emotional development of Pittsburgh’s youth. This is a free summer program held in Borland Garden, an urban green space in East Liberty. Adjunct programs include Trauma-Informed Training for Parents and Teachers, and Trauma Conversations in the Community that highlight holistic treatment of trauma care and provide onsite opportunities to experience this care free of charge.
OMA Lecture Series, a bi-weekly evening event hosted in Oakland at the Twentieth Century Club. Each lecture highlights different holistic practitioners and experts from the Pittsburgh area and beyond. OMA will also begin a satellite Lecture Series in the South Hills of Pittsburgh in 2019.
Daytime lectures, classes and workshops are also hosted by OMA, and offered at Green Heiress Holistic Health in Aspinwall (Pittsburgh PA).
Special Workshops in Mind, Body & Spirit from local practitioners as well as educators and practitioners who are known both nationally and internationally.
A holistic-oriented educational program at Turtle Creek AIU, tailored for at-risk youth from 7th -12th grades.
A Trauma Symposium for the Healing of All Generations is in planning for 2020. This will be a 3-day conference for
Damanhur Mystery School Courses brought to Pittsburgh from Damanhur University, Italy. Instructors are Ambassadors of Damanhur, who travel from Italy to conduct these courses.
Food for the Soul, a casual, intimate gathering led by an OMA facilitator where various topics of mind, body, spirit, and other interests are discussed over a light meal.
