Meditation is the only way to discover your deathlessness.
Then all fear disappears. All other fears also disappear, because they were just offshoots, branches — maybe gone far away from the roots, but still they were connected with the roots [of the fear of death].
(Osho, The Invitation, Chapter 7)
What are Osho Active Meditations?
Osho Active Meditations are a new way of taking care of both the outer and the inner you. Each programme starts with physical activity such as breathing, shaking, dancing or humming and is followed by relaxation and stillness. This is when meditation can happen – a time to just be aware of your body sensations, thoughts and feelings in a self-accepting way without judgement
How do they work?
Unrelieved tensions block the natural flow of energy in our bodies. This affects our ability to think and the way in which we relate to others. Osho Meditations dissolve these blocks and allow us to become more natural and relaxed.
Who are they for?
Osho Meditations are especially designed for people who want to bring a new quality of ease to their busy, pressured lives. For men and women who not only care about their bodies and their health, but who also like to feel at ease inside. For people who want to become more calm and flexible, without being controlled by the opinions of others.
What tools do I need?
Especially composed music for the different techniques is to accompany the meditations. Contact us for info about how to order the CDs which contain detailed instructions.
Can I do the meditations by myself?
It is recommended to do the meditations for the first time in a group or with someone who has done them before, especially the Dynamic Meditation. Later on they can be done on your own.
How often should I do the meditations?
Once you have found a meditation that works for you and you enjoy doing, decide to do it for three consecutive days (and stick to it). If after these three days you wish to continue, you can commit yourself for the next three weeks, and later for three months.
Who created them?
Active Meditations have been devised by the modern mystic Osho especially for the modern man.
