What we're about

Welcome to Osho Meditation Meetup in BC!

We are individuals who enjoy getting together to share meditation space. Whenever possible we bring trained facilitators to guide the group process.

We have found that meditating in a group can be helpful to move deeper into our centre.

We understand that meditation is a knack, and once you get the knack of it, you've got it!

About Osho:

https://a248.e.akamai.net/secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/5/d/9/a/600_163703962.jpeg

Osho does not teach any religion and does not belong to any particular religion. What he offers is a sense of religiousness - the real fragrance of all the flowers of existence, the buddhas, the mystics and sages that this world has known.
Osho has given thousands of discourses (talks) on all the well-known and not so known mystics of the world—from Ashtavakra to Zarathusthra.
Osho is a modern day mystic whose wisdom, clarity and humour is continually touching the lives of millions of people around the world.
His insights are creating the conducive atmosphere or "Atma-Sphere ” for the emergence of what he calls the ‘New Man’ or Zorba, the Buddha – He describes the combination of celebration, dance and song of Zorba and the silence, stillness and meditation of Buddha. This is where East meets West.
Zorba the Buddha is a totally new human being who is awakened, and who is life-affirmative and free.
When someone once asked Osho the definition of religion, Osho replied: "To be in romance with life is religion."
Osho ha created many meditation techniques for our transformation.

Compassion, the highest form of love, is the natural expression of this transformation. We can meditate with Buddha, dance with Krishna and celebrate our love with Sufis, and yet be free to be just who we are.

You are invited!

"I am an invitation for all those who are seeking, searching, and have a deep longing in their hearts to find their home. I am an answer to the question that everybody is, but cannot formulate -a question that is more a quest than a question, more a thirst than a verbal, mental inquiry; a thirst that one feels in every cell and fiber of his being, but has no way to bring to words and ask."

Osho: The Invitation

OSHO® Active Meditation

OSHO® Active Meditation Techniques for People Who Can’t Sit Still For years, if you tried and failed to get into meditation. It didn’t matter how many friends recommended you, how many guided meditation apps you tried, or how many benefits you read about. if you just don’t like sitting still. The most popular form of meditation—sitting and focusing on your breath—never stuck. There are many people like you. Active meditations is meant as an alternative. If you don’t like sitting still, there are many active approaches that achieve similar results. Think of meditation as a practice with three benefits: calm, focus, and awareness. Some of the exercises below train all three — just like a traditional seated breath-based meditation. By far, the most common benefit of these meditations is calm. That benefit can come in two ways: One is the physical sense of calm. The other is a mental state, where you stop thinking about the past or the future and are simply present in the current moment. What are OSHO Active Meditations? OSHO Active Meditations are scientifically designed for the societies of the 21st century to help us create silence in a joyful and fun way. Each meditation begins with activity and physical movements such as shaking, dancing, sound, breathing, etc. Then you move into relaxation and stillness. This is the moment where meditation can happen – a moment to be alert and simply watching the body´s sensations, the thoughts and feelings, accepting everything without any judgement. No Previous experience is required for OSHO Active Meditations. Only motivation and commitment. For whom are these techniques? This is an open space for everyone who wants to experience a more unburdened life and to discover the wonders it has to offer. Anyone who is looking forward to connect with creativity and intuition. Discovering “who am I” and trusting existence without letting other people´s tensions, worries or opinions to control us. Those who are willing to live with totality and in abundance. What are these methods about? Each method has its own music specifically created to guide the participant through each stage. The active stages help to release accumulated tensions in the body-mind allowing the natural energy flow to move. This way, in the passive stages, you can move into stillness being the witness of whatever is happening inside.

These meditations are safe if done properly and with awareness of your own limitations. Only perform the Active meditaton at a level that feels comfortable, and stop if you begin to feel uncomfortable or light-headed. It isn’t a race, so progress at your own pace. OSHO Never Born – Never Died ­– Only visited this planet Earth between December 11, 1931 and January 19, 1990, are the words written on his epitaph. They clearly echo his life and teachings, and the unsurpassed legacy he left behind for the flowering and transcendence of human consciousness. "What I am doing here is very simple, very ordinary, nothing spiritual in it, nothing sacred. I am not trying to make you holy persons, I am simply trying to make you sane, intelligent, ordinary people who can live their lives joyously, dancingly, celebratingly." Osho
