Founded in 1978 by visionary George Addair, The Omega Vector is an organization that teaches the art of Self-Knowledge. Its flagship program utilizes the centuries-old Socratic questioning technique, which uncovers what defines you as an individual and what shapes your worldview. Led by a veteran team of graduates, the core Omega programs are free and typically take only one weekend to complete. That’s it. It’s a small and simple commitment to yourself that can change your life in a very big way.
The change you seek will actually happen right in the classroom. In one weekend, you’ll be led on a path of discovery. You’ll shed old beliefs, fixed attitudes, and problems that weigh you down. You’ll leave lighter, with renewed confidence and crystal-clear purpose. You’ll take with you new skills to enhance your personal and professional lives.

Those who say nothing good ever came from war have never met George Addair. His place of birth was War, West Virginia, in 1931. Ironically, he would include the vale of war in his life of peaceful teachings.
George’s family lived in a small rural mining town where in the dark bowels of the Appalachian Mountains, his father, George Sr., contracted Black Lung disease. The second oldest of five children, his mother raised them with a willow to their backs daily.
At seventeen, he lied about his age in order to join the Air Force. Initially stationed at Arizona’s Luke Air Force Base, he became proficient in electronics in the Korean War. This training gave him the knowledge and insight about the workings of energy, which became an intricate part of the lessons he offered people in his later years.
After his service in the Air Force, George returned to Phoenix, Arizona and attended Bible school. He became an ordained minister in 1950, and founded the First Baptist Church of Payson, which still exists today.
In his career as a minister, George soon found religion, as opposed to spirituality, biased toward other valid beliefs. He felt religions often alienated true spirit, and often frustrated his superiors with his questions. Finally, he left the church in 1953, and took a job at Reynolds Aluminum, and remained there for almost fifteen years. Vigilant in his private studies, he was president of the New Age World Order, where he met the people who shaped his future teachings.
"Self-reliance is the greatest gift you can to the world and to yourself. It will shift your mind and awaken your consciousness to be a help and not a burden to the world."
In 1967, George purchased Papago Printing. He was thrilled with the idea of being able to print and distribute his writings. During his 33 years of owning and operating this business, George was introduced to a number of individuals who again assisted in his development of becoming a philosophic teacher.
Among these individuals were: Torkom Saraydarian who introduced him to the Ageless Wisdom Teachings, Father Jack who taught him about meditation: and Dr. Harry Olsen, who introduced him to the Kabbalah, Many P. Hall, Alice Bailey and most importantly, Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin who theorized The Omega Point.
Thirsty for knowledge, George attended many of the personal growth seminars which sprang up in the early 70’s. Disillusioned with charging a fee for knowledge, George took a leap of faith and founded The Omega Vector in 1978. A personal growth experiential program which was free of charge.
Operated entirely by volunteers, this program existed on the donations of the participants. Refusing to take federal grants or funding, George proclaimed that the value of the program must come from those who attend. If they felt it was valuable, they would donate, if not, no donation was required.
A true visionary, George operated the program until the later years of his life. Sadly, George suffered from Parkinson’s disease and removed himself from the classroom in 2002. He still managed to deliver Monthly Monday Night workshops lectures until 2007.
George passed from this life on June 28, 2012. His final act was one of great compassion. Having been unconscious for more than a week, he opened his eyes and took a deep breath. A smile graced his face, his eyes were burning brilliantly with every last bit of life he had left in him. He looked directly at his granddaughter, who was very fearful of death, and then to Ann-Marie, who had been caring for him for the past few years. A silent moment, he held their gaze. As if to say, he was not afraid, nor should they be, he exhaled and peacefully closed his eyes.
Ann- Marie was born and raised in New York, After graduating college with a BA in Communications and a minor in Philosophy, she left everything behind and relocated to Arizona.
In 1990, Ann-Marie stepped through the doors of The Omega Vector. Within moments, she drew in a deep breath and knew she had found home. Under the guidance and tutelage of George Addair, Ann-Marie flourished to become the lead facilitator.
In 2002, as George’s health began to fail, Ann-Marie became the Director of Omega, overseeing the programs, facilitator training, and delivery of the Monday Night Workshops.
During her 31 years volunteering at Omega, Ann-Marie has facilitated hundreds of Omega Programs. Throughout the years, she worked with George to rework and update the programs. They created the Omega Four program as well as programs offered outside of Omega.
In addition to these programs, Ann-Marie has created and launched the Couples Program and the Satsang Program.
Ann-Marie has written and presented over a hundred workshops as well. Recently she has taken to social media presenting weekly short insightful videos. Many of these have been uploaded onto Facebook & YouTube.
Reluctant to join social media, Ann-Marie has always held dear to the confidentiality of Omega and the Omega programs. She prefers to be a silent force, much like the current in the river, or the wind. It cannot be seen, but one can witness its presence.
In addition to volunteering at Omega, Ann-Marie holds an ATD Master Trainer Certification. In 2000 she started her own business, offering Executive Coaching and Leadership Programs.
