Meditations

Why active meditations

 

Again and again we hear people say that “I cannot meditate”. But this is said in respect of traditional techniques like Vipassana and Zen meditation. In the Buddhist tradition we sit still, we observe our breathing and we aim to attain a fully thought-less state of BEING PRESENT.
Due to the fact that in the 21st century many of us already spend the whole day sitting and carrying out mentally taxing work, our bodies and minds find it very hard to really come to rest.

Osho”s active meditations have been scientifically researched and developed over many years with the help of hundreds of participants from different religious backgrounds.

They allow the body, to release its tensions and our unconscious patterns of behaviour and to reach a healthy balance. Tranquillity can return.

in silence we are connected

our meditations

Mindfullness-guided meditation

alternating some elements of LU JONG YOGA will be part of the meditation.

Vipassana – a traditional buddhist meditation in silence

45 minutes

Vipassana is the oldest, certainly the most practiced meditation; coming from the Buddhist tradition.

we sit upright on a cushion or chair, with eyes closed or slightly open. observing the breath helps our mind to calm down and the value-free observation brings you into contact with your true being. a short walk meditation in between will make sitting more relaxed.

you start breathing into the first chakra and let the music guide you up to the 7th chakra. hearing three bells you move slowly down to the first and repeat the whole process once again.
