At Santosa Detox & Wellness Center, every Saturday afternoon, we have a very special meditation – Osho active meditation.
Many meditative techniques require one to sit still and silent. But for most of us accumulated stress in our body and mind makes that difficult. In the modern world people are living a very repressed life.
“Just sitting directly in silence won’t help. The moment you will sit silently, you will see all sorts of things moving inside you; you will feel it almost impossible to be silent. First throw those things out so you come to a natural state of rest. Real meditation starts only when you are at rest.” – Osho
Before we can hope to access our inner powerhouse of consciousness, we need to let go of our tensions. All of Osho’s active meditations involve a beginning stage of activity — sometimes intense and physical — followed by a period of silence. All are accompanied by music that has been specially composed to guide the meditator through the different stages.
Osho Kundalini Meditation lasts for one hour and has four stages, three with music, and the last without. It is best done at sunset or in the late afternoon. It can be done alone, but the energy will be more powerful if it is done in a group. Being fully immersed in the shaking and dancing of the first two stages helps to “melt” the rock-like being, wherever the energy flow has been repressed and blocked. Then that energy can flow, dance and be transformed into bliss and joy.
The last two stages enable all this energy to flow vertically, to move upwards into silence. It is a highly effective way of unwinding and letting go at the end of the day. As the mind becomes completely empty, your whole energy becomes aflame of awakening. This flame is the result of meditation. So you can say meditation is another name of watching, witnessing, observing – without any judgement, without any evaluation. One thing has to be remembered about meditation; it is a long journey and there is no shortcut.It is a long journey because the change is very deep and is achieved after many years of routine habits, thinking, desiring.
Welcome to join us on Saturday to explore more life possibilities!
