Osho Dynamic Meditation
Within the wide legacy of Osho’s teachings, the Dynamic Meditation certainly qualifies as one of the crown jewels. Osho wanted to spread meditation techniques to a wider and more contemporary audience, and for this purpose he developed active meditations. He noticed among his followers that for westerners it was particularly difficult to sit silently and meditate. First they had to move the body, radically shake and shift the energy inside, and totally exhaust themselves. Then a possibility would arise, a let-go, a relaxation, silence. Active meditations such as the Dynamic meditation serve this purpose, they are especially developed for modern man in modern times, to be able to drop from the brain to the heart, and subsequently to the roots of the navel, the Hara centre.
He remarked on how modern man is a very new “phenomenon”, where both the body and the mind have changed radically. He noted how during Patanjali’s days the centre of the human personality was not the brain, it was the heart. And that before that it wasn’t the heart, but the navel. Now the centre is without a doubt the brain. However, in the brain there is simply verbal understanding, intellectual. There is no transformation, simply an accumulation of knowledge.
“I use chaotic methods rather than systematic ones because a chaotic method is very helpful in pushing the centre down from the brain. The centre cannot be pushed down through any systematic method because systemization is brainwork. Through a systematic method, the brain will be strengthened; more energy will be added to it. Through chaotic methods the brain is nullified. It has nothing to do. The method is so chaotic that the centre is automatically pushed from the brain to the heart. If you do my method of Dynamic Meditation vigorously, unsystematically, chaotically, your centre moves to the heart. Then there is a catharsis.
A catharsis is needed because your heart is so suppressed, due to your brain. Your brain has taken over so much of your being that it dominates you. There is no place for the heart, so the longings of the heart are suppressed. You have never laughed heartily, never lived heartily, never done anything heartily. The brain always comes in to systematize, to make things mathematical, and the heart is suppressed. So firstly, a chaotic method is needed to push the centre of consciousness from the brain toward the heart.
Then catharsis is needed to unburden the heart, to throw off suppressions, to make the heart open. If the heart becomes light and unburdened, then the centre of consciousness is pushed still lower; it comes to the navel. The navel is the source of vitality, the seed source from which everything else comes: the body and the mind and everything.” (Osho)
21 days of Dynamic meditation
So, this is the invitation and the challenge:
Give yourself the chance to break free of all kinds of conditionings and old ingrained patterns of body and mind. Experience the joy and freedom of being a witness to yourself and the immense silence and power lying within.
Doing this mediation in a 21 day cycle within a safe and trusted group of people will accelerate and intensify the inner process of releasing inner blocks.
We will meet as a group 4 times, day 1, day 7, day 14 and day 21 of the process.
Saturday morning at 7:30 AM to +/- 9:00 AM
Dates: 5, 12, 19 and 26 of May
On those 4 days there will be further technical explanation of the Dynamic Meditation and room for further questions. Then the group will do the dynamic together. The facilitator will remain guarding the space and safety of the group. Afterwards there will be room for a sharing round.
On the other days you will do the Dynamic at home and continue deepening on the process.
Welcome to this intense, transformational, freeing and expanding inner journey!
