What we're about

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

On the third Saturdays of the month we will have a monthly Osho Dynamic meditation at Lauderdale House which is situated on the entrance to Waterlow Park; an easy walk from Archway tube which is on the Northern line. Meditations are open for everyone to join in!! Regular practice is so healthy and beneficial for mind and body in this day and age. If you cannot afford the suggested fee to join us for a meditation class please ask for an alternative payment plan. Nobody is refused at our meditation classes!

Periodically through the months we will also offer classes and workshops to practice other active meditations by Osho. So far on the menu is:-

Kundalini meditation

Nadabrahma meditation

Chakra breathing meditation

Chakra sounds meditation

A few other offerings will also be advertised on this web page mainly for conscious dance/movement classes and breathwork sessions.

Move your body- Free your mind
Now every 1st,2nd and 3rd Saturday nights of the month...

Tribalheart Ecstatic dance creates space for free-form movement in a chat free zone where you can dive deeply into the heart, reconnecting, expressing, dancing in and out, up and down, learning to let go of anything and everything that holds you back from yourSelf and inner freedom. Let the energy move you, let the spirit of the heart guide you. There is space to dance alone and no pressure to connect with anyone else, just be yourself and honor what you need in the moment.
This night is an inspiration and fusion of club culture, dancing yoga, active meditation, cardio fitness, Ecstatic trance dance (blindfolds available) and a sacred Nataraj. If you choose to connect, it is a chance to meet others without words from a place of movement, meditation, energy and soul; eyes and heart wide open.

*** (Please see below for further details on how we aim to keep our dancers safe regarding the Covid-19)***

The evening
We will start the evening with a welcoming warmup to relax the body and mind. Together we will set an intention for the evening inviting the heart to open and awaken within us thus creating sacred space for all. For those that wish to partake, we will enjoy and deepen our intention with a short Cacao, breath and energy ceremony. (The cacao is used to take us deeper into our body, awakening our senses, connecting us to heart energy and aiding a spring in our step)

MONTHLY (IN PERSON) OSHO DYNAMIC MEDITATION

Waterlow Park

We are back!!!!
The Venue is a room in 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!

Doors open 0830am
Instructions 0845am
Meditation -9am-10am (no admission after 9am)

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!

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. 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. We will commence with the dynamic meditation for a series of weeks then rotate to try other active meditations designed by Osho.

What is the dynamic meditation?

A complete work out for mind, body and soul; It is the mother of all emotional cleansers!!

More detailed instructions for new comers given at 845am(optional attendance if you know this meditation well).

Meditation starts 9am sharp. Doors will have to close then. This technique is in 5 stages that flow together beautifully to make up the complete meditation. It is done with the eyes closed so no need to feel self conscious; no one is looking at you!

Stage 1)chaotic breathing. Completely takes you out of the mind, energizes, detoxifies and oxygenates the body in preparation for the next stage

Stage 2)Catharsis-emptying your vessel! How often will you get the the opportunity to release on such a spectacular level. Your endorphins will be flying as you act out, scream, cry, shout, play madness as best you can. Doing this regular will release stress and tension on all levels; It could keep you sane:)

Stage 3)''Hoo'' phase. Grounding the energy

Stage 4)Silence...drop inside and really experience the witnessing self. Meditation will come easily now.

Stage 5)Dance. Celebrate your experience like a new born you

Meditations will start at 9am (running for one hour )on Saturday mornings. New comers please arrive at 845am if you want to go over the instructions...

Cost is on a sliding scale depending on your wage or situation- £15/£12 or £10 conc no questions asked!
(please pay by cash, paypal or eventbrite. Correct money if paying cash please)

If money is a problem please speak to Tara, all are welcome

This meditation can be done alone but the more the merrier for a real energy blast. I know it's early but get up and JOIN IN!!! Trust me you will feel amazing afterwards....
Ideally this is best done on an empty stomach(certainly not a full one). As I said there is a cafe downstairs so you won't go hungry or you can always picnic in the park!

Come alone or come with friends. Bring a bottle of water and an open mind!
