A popular evening meditation practice. Includes loosening the body, dancing, witnessing and resting stages. Stressful living and unexpressed emotions can effect our ability to live joyfully and relate to others.
Osho Active Meditations are scientifically designed to effectively release these tensions which block the natural flow of energies in our bodies, allowing us to become more peaceful and relaxed.
Osho Kundalini is one of Osho’s most popular and potent meditation techniques. It involves shaking, dancing, sitting silently and relaxing.
Osho Active Meditations combine all certain activities like shaking, dancing, jumping, humming and others to lead into silence and meditation. Music is used as a background for all these meditations.
A final stage of 15 minutes of silence completes the meditation and a gong signals the end.
A complete CD download includes also the silent stage with one of the tracks being mostly silence with a signal at the end – this is part of the experience.
How to Practice Osho Kundalini Active Meditations
First Stage: 15 minutes
Be loose and let your whole body shake, feeling the energies moving up from your feet. Let go everywhere and become the shaking. Your eyes may be open or closed.“Allow the shaking; don’t do it. Stand silently, feel it coming and when your body starts trembling, help it but don’t do it. Enjoy it, feel blissful about it, allow it, receive it, welcome it, but don’t will it.“If you force it will become an exercise, a bodily, physical exercise. Then the shaking will be there but just on the surface; it will not penetrate you. You will remain solid, stone-like, rock-like within. You will remain the manipulator, the doer, and the body will just be following. The body is not the question – you are the question. “When I say shake, I mean your solidity, your rock-like being should shake to the very foundations so that it becomes liquid, fluid, melts, flows. And when the rock-like being becomes liquid, your body will follow. Then there is no shake, only shaking. Then nobody is doing it; it is simply happening. Then the doer is not.” — Osho
