The quickest way to relax and experience a peaceful meditative state of pure consciousness in today's world is through Active Meditation. Many people find Active Meditations easier and more enjoyable to practice because they help to quickly release accumulated stress from the body and mind, and allow even the busiest minds to experience silent gaps of inner peace with much less effort.
Active Meditations are based on the understanding that contemporary people cannot just sit down and become quiet and silent in the same way that people in the times of Buddha could do. Now life moves at a much faster pace, which creates more stress and tension. Just to sit in silent meditation is not so easy.
What are Osho Active Meditations?
Osho Active Meditations are a 21st-century approach to taking care of both the outer and the inner you. Each meditation starts with physical activity such as shaking, dancing or humming, and then proceeds through different steps into 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 judgment.
Who are they for?
Osho Active Meditations are specially designed for people who want to bring a new quality of well being to their busy, pressured lives—for men and women who not only care about their bodies and their health, but who also want to feel at ease inside. Osho Active Meditations are for people who want to become more open and flexible, without being controlled by their tensions, worries, or the opinions of others.
How do they work?
Accumulated tensions in the body and mind block the natural flow of our energy. This affects our ability to think clearly, and the way in which we relate to others. Osho Active Meditations draw on a deep understanding of the relationship between the physical and the spiritual dimensions to dissolve these blocks and allow us to become more natural and at ease with ourselves. Each technique is accompanied by special music created to guide the participant through its different stages.
