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

Sufi...the Path of the Heart - May 26-30, 2016

E-mail Print PDF

Sufi is a Mystic path, and the essence that is at the heart of all religious spirits. It is the ancient wisdom of the heart, and the path of love born from that wisdom. It's finding the true nature and realization. This group in a meditative process using different methods, like rhythm, breath, music, dance, voice, sound,  poetry, to enter a state of emptiness.

Glimpses of last year's event is below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ky-6PWKNdTA



"Zikhr" (Remeberance), an essential Sufi method, will bring us in touch with ifferent layers of our being.  Its waves will deepen and expand the different qualities of human consciousness and take us to the silent lake of our being.

Whirling symbolizes and represents man's unity with the cosmos; is a movement where we dissolve ourselves with a world that cannot be understood withour mind, it has to be felt with the heart. This gathering is a process of emptying  ourselves,  a process,  an atmosphere where love and wildness flower into meditation.

We will also explore the beauty of Sufi poetry and music.

This Sufi group will be a deep immersion into our inner world, an exploration of the love and wisdom we all carry in our being.  A Remembrance of  the joyful song, and luminous silence, of existence.

“By knowing the mysteries of our own heart, we begin to resonate with the mysteries of existence”.

Watch this video of Videha explaining Sufi Whirlilng.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jeca3isOoW4

About Videha

Videha has been a Osho disciple since 1980. Initiated into the Mevlevi Sufi Order of Konya ( “The Whirling Dervishes” ), Videha integrates the Sufi Path into Osho’s vision and love.  For years as a Zazen practitioner, he has traveled and trained in Mongolia, China, Taiwan, Japan, Central Asia, Tibet, where he received many initiations.  He is leading groups, seminars, camps and meditation retreats all over the world since more then 28 years, uniting the path of love and the path of meditation.

“All the work is inspired by Osho’s teachings, my Master, and an endless source of compassion and wisdom, an inexhaustible mine of countless Dharma teaching treasures”.

LET US BEGIN THE JOURNEY HOME

“Wake up lovers, it’s time to start a new journey.
We have seen enough of this world, it’s time to see another.
These two gardens may be beautiful, but let us past beyond them,
and go to the gardener himself.
Let us kiss the ground, and flow like a river towards the ocean.
Let us go from the valley of tears, to the wedding feast.
Let us bring the colors of blossom to the over pale faces.
Oh my heart, shiver like autumn leaves about to fall.
In this world of dust there is no avoiding pain or feeling excited.
Let us become like beautiful colored birds and fly,
fly to the sweet land of paradise.
Everything is painted with the brush of the invisible one,
let us follow the hidden sign, and find the painter.
It’s best to travel with companions, on this journey only love can be the way.
We have stayed at home, scared like mouse, let us find courage and join the lions.
Let our souls turn into mirrors, longing to reflect the essence of beauty, of the Beloved.
Let us begin the journey home.”
