On the Theme of the Retreat - Osho Says
"We are all hung up in the head. That is our only problem, the only one problem. And there is only one solution: Get down from the head into the heart and all problems disappear. They are created by the head. And suddenly everything is so clear and so transparent that one is surprised how one was continuously inventing problems. Mysteries remain but problems disappear. Mysteries abound but problems evaporate. And mysteries are beautiful. They are not to be solved they have to be lived." -Osho

Dress recommendation for event: Loose clothing. Meditation robes if available. Maroon or white color preferred but not mandatory. White for evening session. (We do not have any robes available, if you need robes then please reach out to Osho Niranjana - [masked] in advance)
