Osho Meditations

Techniques are helpful because they are scientific. You are saved from unnecessary wandering, unnecessary groping; if you don’t know any techniques, you will take a long time.

Active Meditation – A Faster Way to Inner

To help the contemporary seeker reach an experience of meditation, self-observation and inner stillness much easier and faster, Osho, the twentieth century Indian mystic, created several active meditation techniques. These meditations are used by millions of people around the globe with extraordinary results. The Osho Active Meditations are not only fast and effective, but they are also easy and enjoyable to practice.

 

Each Active Meditation technique is one hour long and consists of 3 to 5 stages. It also comes with its own pre-recorded music CD or MP3 to help carry the meditator from one stage to the next without needing to engage the mind and think when to move to the next stage.

 

You can practice the Osho Active Meditations in the comfort of your own home – alone, or with friends and family – or in a group setting during seminars, workshops, and retreats.
