OSHO NO-MIND MEDITATIVE THERAPY – SPAIN

A 7-day process for 2 hours a day, designed by Osho, to cleanse and de-stress the mind.
No-Mind is one of the Meditative Processes that Osho created shortly before leaving his body.
Using the unique and an unusual technique of speaking only Gibberish you can release the stress in your mind and unburden yourself by expressing blocked, repressed energies in a new and original way.
Seven day process, two hours daily. One hour gibberish,
one hour silence and witnessing
The first part is Gibberish
The word “gibberish” comes from a Sufi mystic, Jabbar. Jabbar never spoke any language, he just uttered nonsense. Still he had thousands of disciples because what he was saying was, “Your mind is nothing but gibberish. Put it aside and you will have a taste of your own being. Use gibberish and go consciously crazy. Go crazy with absolute awareness so that you become the center of the cyclone. Simply allow whatever comes, without bothering whether it is meaningful or reasonable. Just throw out all mind garbage and create the space in which the Buddha appears.
The second part is silence and witnessing
The cyclone is gone and has taken you also away. The Buddha has taken its place in absolute silence and immobility. You are just witnessing the body, the mind and anything that is happening.
Gibberish when done with absolute intensity, takes us out of our logical mind and into the realms of the mysterious and spiritual. It supports participants to move beyond their usual boundaries of expression and daily structures, to experience a state beyond mind.
People who have particpated in the No-Mind Meditative Therapy around the world report that they have experienced themselves as more open, vulnerable, and centered afterwards, and find they can be much more deeply relaxed and silent during meditation.
Osho first introduced the No-Mind meditation as part of his evening discourses on Zen. Later on, it became a group process. Here is an excerpt from the talk where Osho first introduced the meditation:
“The first part is gibberish. The word ‘gibberish’ comes from a Sufi mystic, Jabbar. Jabbar never spoke any language, he just uttered nonsense. Still he had thousands of disciples because what he was saying was, “Your mind is nothing but gibberish. Put it aside and you will have a taste of your own being.”
To use gibberish, don’t say things which are meaningful, don’t use the language that you know. Use Chinese, if you don’t know Chinese. Use Japanese if you don’t know Japanese. Don’t use German if you know German. For the first time have a freedom – the same as all the birds have. Simply allow whatever comes to your mind without bothering about its rationality, reasonability, meaning, significance – just the way the birds are doing. For the first part, leave language and mind aside.
Out of this will arise the second part, a great silence in which you have to close your eyes and freeze your body, all its movements, gather your energy within yourself. Remain here and now. ( Osho )

MEDITATION BOOTCAMP – Vancouver

Take a break from your hectic life, come and join us in this delightful journey of Osho active meditations!

This 2,5 hours event is designed for those who want to release old stuck energies and tension from their bodies in order to bring harmony to your body & mind. You will be learning two Osho meditations in this process. Music will be provided for those who wants to continue to practice after the workshop.

Chakra Breathing Meditation:

Chakra Breathing meditation aligns the seven major chakras (which correspond to the body’s major endocrine glands) with the power of the environment and the universe.

Chakra Breathing meditation keeps the body moving and the energy flowing, and it also gives a way to focus your attention on your own body to feel what happens there when you breathe so intensely.

By breathing deeply and fairly quickly into the chakras, we charge the segments with energy while we move and pulsate that part of the body. This promotes a vertical connection between all the chakras and offers a taste of inner wholeness as energy flows more easily up and down the spine.

Gibberish Meditation:

Gibberish was first used hundreds of years ago by a Sufi mystic named Jabbar. In fact, the very word ‘gibberish’ derives from his name.
The mind thinks in terms of words. Gibberish helps to break up this pattern of continuous verbalization. Without suppressing your thoughts, you can throw them out using the Gibberish meditation. It is a wonderful way to release physical, mental and emotional stress.

Benefits:
A more positive outlook in terms of your thought processes and in your perception and understanding of events and behaviors.
Increased concentration, awareness and memory.
Heightened creativity, better resourcefulness because of better perception.
Better and deeper sleep; they will awake more refreshed in the morning and overall health will also benefit by getting deeper sleep.
Reduction of stress in all areas of your life because you will have better control over your emotions and better patience.
Improved overall health and well-being. It helps to lower blood pressure which in turn can help prevent strokes and heart disease. It will also alleviate the stress effect on people suffering from chronic illnesses.
A balanced and harmonious interdependent functions of the body’s major chakras with one another is obtained. With that, the whole body’s biological, emotional, and spiritual aspects become more nourished and balance the body cleansing physical, emotional and spiritual toxins.

Time: 10 am – 12.30 pm
Place: Rhodes Wellness College
280-1125 Howe Street Vancouver, B.C

COMING BACK TO THE ROOTS – A JOURNEY TO INNER LIBERATION! PART 1- Vancouver

SUBJECT OF THE WEEK:Basic instincts, survival, security, safety

Welcome to 7 WEEKS OF INNER LIBERATION JOURNEY!
**You can join the entire series or drop-in on individual sessions (the previous weeks are not a prerequisite.)

Join us for this seven-week workshop series to connect with your body and emotions, release old habit patterns, re-wire the false belief systems. Break the body armouring and defence mechanisms that prevent you from reaching your full potential in life.

Boost your energy, create physical freedom and a deeper connection with your authentic divine self!

We all come to this life fully open, full of love. Along the way because of the conditioning of our families, societies and religions, we slowly lose our connection with ourselves. We learn to hear the voice of others more than our inner voice. We learn how to fit in, and we forget our ability to feel our own needs. As we become good functioning members of our societies, we stray away from our authentic self.

As we are adapting to our environment, our survival mechanism kicks in. Our bodies start to create a body armouring to protect us from being overwhelmed by emotions. This survival strategy helps us get through the challenging times; however, it cuts us off from our life energy. Then we become tired and depressed and anxious.

In this week, we will focus on ‘PELVIS’ segment and we will gently release the old tensions and the traumas stuck in the muscular system of that part of the body. We will be using breathwork, bioenergetics, movement and meditation

At the end of these seven weeks, you will feel alive, relaxed, joyfully and most importantly harmonious in your body & mind system.

DATES: JANUARY 25TH- MARCH 8TH,EVERY WEDNESDAY.

**All levels are welcome – no previous experience or knowledge of breathwork, meditation is necessary**

MANDALA MEDITATION

This Meditation cycle is a powerful centering technique in a 1 hour session.
This active meditation technique OSHO Mandala – helps you to move through an energetic process to discover your natural center.

“The mind is a mandala, a circle. If you watch, you become aware of the vicious circle of the mind. Again and again it brings the same emotions – the same anger, the same hatred, the same greed, the same ego. And you are just a victim. Becoming aware of the mind, you break the circle, you are no more identified with the mind.”

NATARAJ MEDITATION
Nataraj is the energy of dance. This is dance as a total meditation, where all inner division disappears and a subtle, relaxed awareness remains.

“Forget the dancer, the center of the ego; become the dance. That is the meditation. Dance so deeply that you forget completely that ‘you’ are dancing and begin to feel that you are the dance. The division must disappear; then it becomes a meditation.

Pls. come with loose clothes and bring a yoga mat and bottle of water if you have.
Arrive 10 minutes prior to the event, the doors will be locked at 10 am. sharp.

**You can drop-in on individual sessions (the previous weeks are not a prerequisite.)
