I am setting up this group to create a space for doing OSHO active meditations and would be delighted for anyone wishing to join me to come along. New comers to meditation especially welcome.
Active meditations were designed by Osho with us westerners in mind. It can be challenging with our hectic lifestyles, full of stimulus to just sit down and switch off into silence. How many times have you heard people say' I just can't meditate, my mind is too busy, my body cannot be still etc...'
Active meditations were designed by Osho to use the body and breath first, enabling us to 'empty our vessel ' through physical movement breath-work and/or using sound. By doing this we release pent up emotions and tension in the body so that we are more able to reach inner stillness, silence and meditation.
Once a month we will have a discourse and daal evening for those that are interested to find out more about OSHO, the creator of these active meditation
On the first Saturday mornings of the month we will interchange between the many active meditations designed by Osho. These meditations will be held in the small but cosy Urban temple, or weather permitting outdoors in Waterlow park, Highgate.
So far on the menu is:-
Chakra breathing meditation
Chakra sounds meditation
On the third Saturdays of the month we will have a monthly dynamic meditation in the long gallery room, Lauderdale house which is set on the grounds of Waterlow park.
Meditations are open for everyone to join in!!Regular practice is so healthy and beneficial for mind and body in this day and age.
Lauderdale house set on the entrance of the magnificent Waterlow park in Highgate (nearest tube is Archway, on the northern line. Waterlow park is less then 10min walk up highgate hill) A very beautiful location to be after such a energizing and emotionally cleansing experience!
There is a cafe downstairs for you to drink, eat and connect together afterwards or you may feel drawn to wander alone into the majestic park, soaking up the beauty of the trees, lakes and landscape...whatever is right for you!
