OSHO Dynamic Meditation

Killarney Court Community Centre

€10.00

OSHO Dynamic meditation lasts one hours and is in five stages. It is an individual experience so you should remain oblivious of others around you and keep your eyes closed throughout, preferably using a blindfold, which we can supply to you on the day. It is best to have an empty stomach and wear loose clothing. **The meditation starts at 10am sharp so if you are late there is no entry. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the start time for the instructions and to get ready. Instructions First Stage: 10 minutes Breathing chaotically through the nose, let breathing be intense, deep, fast, without rhythm, with no pattern – and concentrating always on the exhalation. The body will take care of the inhalation. The breath should move deeply into the lungs. Do this as fast and as hard as you possibly can until you literally become the breathing. Use your natural body movements to help you to build up your energy. Feel it building up, but don’t let go during the first stage. Second Stage: 10 minutes EXPLODE! … Let go of everything that needs to be thrown out. Follow your body. Give your body freedom to express whatever is there. Go totally mad. Scream, shout, cry, jump, kick, shake, dance, sing, laugh; throw yourself around. Hold nothing back; keep your whole body moving. A little acting often helps to get you started. Never allow your mind to interfere with what is happening. Consciously go mad. Be total. Third Stage: 10 minutes With arms raised high above your head, jump up and down shouting the mantra, “Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!” as deeply as possible. Each time you land, on the flats of your feet, let the sound hammer deep into the sex center. Give all you have; exhaust yourself completely. Fourth Stage: 15 minutes STOP! Freeze wherever you are, in whatever position you find yourself. Don’t arrange the body in any way. A cough, a movement, anything, will dissipate the energy flow and the effort will be lost. Be a witness to everything that is happening to you. Fifth Stage: 15 minutes Celebrate! With music and dance express whatsoever is there. Carry your aliveness with you throughout the day. Cost: €10

OSHO Kundalini Meditation

St Kevin's Community Centre

€10.00

Please bring either a yoga mat or blanket as these will not be provided. The meditation will start at 6.30pm sharp so please arrive a little beforehand. Instructions: The meditation is one hour long, with four stages. First Stage: 15 minutes Be loose and let your whole body shake, feeling the energies moving up from your feet. Let go everywhere and become the shaking. Your eyes may be open or closed. Second Stage: 15 minutes Dance ... any way you feel, and let the whole body move as it wishes. Again, your eyes can be open or closed. Third Stage: 15 minutes Close your eyes and be still, sitting or standing, observing, witnessing, whatever is happening inside and out. Fourth Stage: 15 minutes Keeping your eyes closed, lie down and be still. Cost: €10 Osho on How to Shake: "If you are doing the Kundalini Meditation, allow the shaking – don't do it! Stand silently, feel it coming, and when your body starts a little trembling, help it, but don't do it! Enjoy it, feel blissful about it, allow it, receive it, welcome it, but don't will it. "If you force, it will become an exercise, a bodily physical exercise. Then the shaking will be there, but just on the surface. It will not penetrate you. You will remain solid, stonelike, rocklike within. You will remain the manipulator, the doer, and the body will only be following. The body is not the question, you are the question. "When I say shake, I mean your solidity, your rocklike being should shake to the very foundations, so it becomes liquid, fluid, melts, flows. And when the rocklike being becomes liquid your body will follow. Then there is no shaker, only shaking; then nobody is doing it, it is simply happening. Then the doer is not. "Enjoy it, but don't will it. And remember, whenever you will a thing you cannot enjoy it. They are reverse, opposites; they never meet. If you will a thing you cannot enjoy it, if you enjoy it you cannot will it." Osho

OSHO® Laughter Meditation

Killarney Court Community Centre

€10.00

**The meditation starts at 10am sharp so if you are late there is no entry. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the start time for the instructions and to get ready. Please bring a yoga mat or blanket and a cushion. Instructions: This meditation is in three parts and lasts one hour. First stage: 20 minutes Sitting silently, eyes closed, create a giggle in the very guts of your being, as if your whole body is giggling and laughing. Start swaying with the laughter and let it spread from the belly to the whole of your body: hands laughing, feet laughing. Go crazily into it. If it becomes uproariously, loudly, allow it; if it comes silently, then sometimes silently, sometimes loudly - just keep on laughing. this stage is over when you hear the gong beat. Second stage: 20 minutes Lie down, spread yourself on the floor, facing the floor. Make contact with the earth, the whole body lying down there, and just feel that the earth is the mother and you are the child. Get lost in that feeling. Breathe with the earth, feel one with the earth. Third stage: 20 minutes Stand up and start dancing. Energized by the earthing, you will have so much energy that your dancing will have a different quality to it. Just dance, any dance. The mediation is over when you hear three gongs. About this meditation OSHO states that: "In a real deep laughter the mind disappears. It is not a part of mind or of the heart. When a real laughter happens -- a belly laughter, as it is called -- then it comes from your very core; from your very center ripples start spreading towards your circumference. Just as you throw a rock into a silent lake and ripples arise and they start moving towards the source, in the same way real laughter arises from your center and moves towards your circumference. It is almost like an earthquake! Each single cell of your body, each fiber dances in tune."

OSHO Devavani Meditation

St Kevin's Community Centre

€10.00

Please bring a yoga mat or blanket as none are provided. The meditation starts at 6.30pm sharp so please arrive a little beforehand. The meditation lasts one hour and has four stages of 15 minutes each. Keep your eyes closed throughout. In this meditation a gentle, unfamiliar language moves and speaks through the meditator, who becomes an empty vessel. It deeply relaxes the mind and creates inner peace. It can be done at any time of the day. If done last thing at night, it also creates a profound sleep. First Stage: 15 minutes Sit quietly, while the music is playing. Second Stage: 15 minutes Start making nonsense sounds, for example “la la la” and continue until unfamiliar word-like sounds arise. These sounds need to come from the unfamiliar part of the brain used as a child, before words were learned. Allow a gentle conversational intonation; do not cry or shout, laugh or scream. Third Stage: 15 minutes Stand up and continue this unfamiliar language, allowing your body to move softly in harmony with the sound. If your body is relaxed, the subtle energies will create a Latihan – a spontaneous, unstructured movement outside your control. Fourth Stage: 15 minutes Lie down. Be silent and still. Cost: €10
