Osho Meditation Retreat with Swami Anand Arun - Feb 23-26, 2017

E-mail Print PDF

That’s what I teach: trust yourself, trust your intelligence, trust your own hearts, its feelings - and even if sometimes it looks crazy to follow those feelings, go with them. Its better to be crazy according to your own heart than to be sane according to others. That sanity is worthless. It will never bring you any joy, it will never bring you any benediction. All benedictions are for those who resolve to be themselves - OSHO

We are delighted to welcome you to a 3-day residential meditation retreat with Swami Anand Arun at Osho Niranjana. 

Swami Arun is one of the first Osho sannyasins and received much guidance directly from Osho. A meditation retreat with him is a wonderful opportunity for everyone interested in Osho and his meditations.

About Us

Every meditation contributes to individual and community well-being and ripples out to impact the world family with love, awareness and peace. You are needed.

Meeting the need for effective ways to overcome anxiety and fear around increasing social violence, we offer much-needed meditation programs and classes that contribute to individual, community and world awareness and peace. Embracing diversity and creativity, Osho Niranjana Meditation Center is a beautiful refuge and residential retreat center for continuous awareness, acceptance, and learning among meditators, seekers, and the public. Honoring all denominations and paths, we emphasize what the Enlightened Mystic Osho says, that meditation and love are the only panacea for all the problems of the world. Open to the public, we invite you to come for a day or a week! Beginners welcome!

As the West Coast’s premier meditation refuge and retreat center, we serve adults, children, and seniors with year-round programs and events that feature world-renowned authors, scholars, guest speakers, musicians, healers, artists, and meditation facilitators. Research has documented the numerous benefits of regular meditation including stress reduction, mood boosting, improved immune function, higher energy levels, better concentration, enhanced emotional well-being, and many more, including new friends and positive social connections.

ONMC is in Valley Center, CA, 40 miles north of San Diego and a two-hour drive south of the Los Angeles International Airport. Our diverse participants and special guests come from all over the world. Operated by volunteers year-round, Osho Niranjana Meditation Center is an independent non-profit organization 501(c) (3), registered in the State of California. Your charitable donations are tax-deductible.

We chose the name “Osho Niranjana” to pay tribute to the Enlightened Master Osho and also because "Niranjana," a river in India, is mentioned several times in Buddhist scriptures. Legend has it that Buddha received his final inspiration from the Niranjana River before his Enlightenment. We sincerely hope that Osho Niranjana Meditation Center will also inspire seekers on the path to self-realization and Enlightenment.

Our main objective is to share the vision of Osho and his vast body of work through educational and experiential programs as well as extensive community outreach. The Enlightened Mystic Osho has inspired millions of people around the world through his meditations and books which are very popular among creative celebrities, literary notables, and contemporary spiritual seekers. Osho’s spontaneous talks cover almost every possible subject and have been published in more than 650 books, many of which are featured in our library and book store. In addition to his numerous inspiring books, Osho designed over 300 meditation techniques suitable for modern age. These meditations, offered with background and instruction, make up our core community education offering.

In addition to regular meditation programs and practices, we also offer full day (1-Day, 3-Days, 7-Days) events and retreats facilitated by lifelong and intimate disciples of Osho, many of whom are world-renowned guest speakers and authors. We also offer children’s programs in meditation and creative arts. Guests may reserve overnight dorm-style accommodations and meals at the center or use nearby hotels and restaurants.

Our board of directors is comprised of professionals who have successful careers in the field of engineering, senior project management and graphic design. They also bring over 75 years of combined meditation experience to the organization and its programs.

At Osho Niranjana Meditation Center, we believe every meditation contributes to individual and community well-being and ripples out to impact the world family with love, awareness and peace. Please join hands with us and spread the powerful message of meditation, celebration and love.

Osho Niranjana is an independent non-profit 501(c) (3) organization dedicated to share the teachings of Osho and is not affiliated with any other organization in the US and abroad.
