OSHO No Dimensions Meditation®
Music by Shastro and Sirus
This hour-long album OSHO No Dimensions Meditation is specifically designed to support the OSHO Dimension meditation. The music supports the energy and activity described in each stage of the meditation, and also signals the timing of each stage. A silent stage is part of most OSHO Active Meditations, and when the meditation ends with silence it will be concluded with a bell or gong. This is a powerful method for centering one’s energy in the hara – the area just below the navel. It is based on a Sufi technique of movements for awareness and integration of the body. Because it is a Sufi meditation, it is free and non-serious. In fact it is so non-serious that you can even smile while you are doing it.
This one-hour meditation has three stages. During the first two stages on track one, the eyes are open but not focused on anything – 30 minutes of Sufi movements are followed by 15 minutes of whirling with a brief pause of silence between. During the 15 minutes of silence of the third stage on track two, the eyes are closed.
The music in track one, created especially for this meditation, begins slowly and gradually becomes faster and faster as an uplifting force, then transitions to a new beat for the second stage of whirling.

First Stage – 30 minutes – A six part movement repeated continuously for 30 minutes.
Stand with your hands on the belly. Listening to the belly. Listening to the music, get into the rhythm of the breathing.
1) Breath in through the nose and bring the hands up to the heart. While breathing out through the mouth move the right arm and foot forward and let the left hand return to the belly. Then return to the original stance. 2) Repeat the breathing and movement with left arm and foot moving forward, while the right hand returns to the belly, and then return to the original stance. 3) Repeat the breathing and movements with right arm and foot moving sideways to the right, in a 90 degree turn. 4) Repeat the breathing and movements with left arm and foot moving sideways to the left, in a 90 degree turn. 5) Repeat the breathing and movements with left arm and foot moving behind, in a 180 degree turn. 6) Remember the breathing and movements with left arm and foot moving behind, in a 180 degree turn. Remember to move the center (hara), using the music to keep the correct rhythm. Movements should be in a continuous flow and not automatic. The dance starts slowly and builds up in intensity. If the body falls down by itself, this is also fine.
Second Stage – 15 minutes- Whirling. Turn counter-clockwise keeping the eyes open a little, arms stretched out with the right palm facing the ground. Breath normally and let the whirling take you over. If you feel discomfort from whilrling counterclockwise, you can change to clockwise and reverse position of the hands. If a sensation of nausea arises, focusing the eye on the left hand or thumb can be helpful. To the end of the whirling, slow down and allow the arms to fold over the chest and heart.
Third Stage – 15 minutes – Silence. Lie down preferably on the belly, with eyes closed. Just go inside and allow witnessing to happen.
Total Time: 60:00
