Gathering of Friends - Osho Meditation Nashville
Who is Osho? And what is so special about his meditations?
Osho is a modern enlightened spiritual master who transcends all attempts at categorization. His message is a simple encouragement to embrace Love, Meditation, Laughter, and Celebration, to become what he called The New Man: Zorba the Buddha--a blend of Zorba the Greek's outer experience of joy and celebration and Gautam the Buddha's inner experience of bliss and silent awareness--and, for both, an all-embracing Love and Compasssion.
Osho's genius was to recognize that traditional forms of quiet, introspective meditation, like Vipassana, were not appropriate for the vast majority of modern meditators in this mad, media-driven world. And so he designed Dynamic Meditation specifically for our modern minds--a sequence of chaotic breathing, catharsis, energy activation, silent awareness, and dancing celebration.
Our Meetup offers an opportunity to meditate together using active and passive meditations devised by Osho. Besides Dynamic Meditation we will explore meditations like Kundalini, Nadabrahma, Vipassana, Nataraj, No-Mind, No-Dimension, Gourishanka, and others, as well as listen to and watch Osho discourses.
Here you will find no beliefs, no dogmas that our egos can cling to for false comfort. Here you will simply find yourself, among friends, lifted on the wings of Love and Meditation, and celebrating Life.
Our end-of-month Meetup ("full volume" meditations) is located inside Noteable Blends (see map and directions at http://noteableblends.com/streetmap.html) and happens on the last Sunday of each month from 8:45 AM to Noon. Our mid-month Meetup ("quiet" meditations) is located in the Party Room at Westlawn Green Condominiums and happens on a mid-month Saturday afternoon.
All are welcome--from first-time to long-time meditator and everyone in between. Detailed instructions will be provided.

To cover associated costs, each participant is asked to make a small contribution.
