JANUARY

Osho Meditation training with Shunyo

8 – 11.1.2019 and

Active Meditation 11 – 13.1.2019

 

“The best way to learn is to teach”, and this is true about everything, including meditation.

This Training is not only for you if you wish to teach Osho’s meditations in a professional way, or simply to share with friends or family; it is also for your own meditation to go deeper. Although there will be some theory and enquiry into the science of meditation, this is an experiential Training and we will be meditating together each day.

You will learn how to share the almost inexpressible experience of meditation through your own practice. Your confidence in your own meditation comes through practice and encouragement as you learn how to answer questions and counsel others about their meditation.

There is a possibility for you to be filmed presenting a meditation and to see the playback with encouraging feedback from yourself and others. This is usually a very positive experience and boosts your self-confidence.

We will be practicing not only OSHO’s active meditations but also techniques to take into daily life.

To share meditation with others is a gift and a great joy, and so much needed in the world today.

 

A 2-DAY COURSE FROM SHUNYO AND MARCO WITH LIVE MUSIC.

11 – 13.1.2019

Open secrets of Meditation

The secrets of meditation are so obvious yet people cannot see, so it remains a secret and yet it is open for all. In this workshop we look at different devices to bring us into the moment with joy and relaxation. 

Meditation simply means your body, your mind and your soul are all functioning in harmony, in such wholeness that they are in a melody. This course is a training for life, as meditation is not something to be done once a day, but it can become a part of our everyday activities. It is a way of living – living in awareness and joy. Some of the techniques are active and some are passive – done alone, and silent, and some are done with a partner.

Music combined with Meditation, creates a form of healing that can help students in a physical, mental and emotional way. We will be using music and sounds in different ways: including chanting and humming together, relaxing while music plays, and using various movement and exercises with music as the catalyst. With live music and dance as part of the course it lends a joyful approach to meditation and takes us deeper into a relaxing and loving experience.

Sex to Superconsciousness

– Root Chakra

18 – 20.1.2019

Sex to Superconsciousness – Root Chakra 18 – 20.1.2019

Sex to Superconsciousness is a tantra journey through seven chakras.
Each unique weekend dives deeply into the essence of one chakra, but you can also come for just one workshop. This enlivening process helps us to overcome our conditioning and to evolve on a personal, sexual and spiritual level. Bringing each chakra into balance produces an ecstasy and ease in our life. We feel empowered, awakened and creative.

We invite you to join us in sensorial exploration of dance, meditation, emotional release, group sharing and many other tantric techniques and rituals which will support us emotionally and spiritually through this dynamic journey. In every weekend there is a special massage that opens and balances the energies in that particular chakra and there is a guided dance party celebrating the themes of that chakra.

Root Chakra
During the first chakra weekend we unveil the power of our original life force energy. When we are able to live the first chakra with awareness, the huge potential which is inherent in sexual energy opens us up to passionate ecstasy, to freedom of expression, spontaneity, and Kundalini awakening. Once freed, this energy is the fuel for sexual fulfilment and for spiritual awakening. Life becomes a celebration!

When Chakra 1 is out of balance: Fear, Insecurity, Greed, Sex Addiction, Jealousy, No Libido

When Chakra 1 is in Balance: Ecstatic pleasure in sex and a feeling of being rooted, secure, trusting, with a strong life force.

This workshop is for you if you want to:
Dive deeper in the tantric path
You are interested in personal growth and spiritual development
Reach your full potential and flourish in life
Have stronger life force energy
Grow in relationships, in intimacy and in ability to set boundaries
Experience more pleasure in your sexuality

Our workshop is open to singles and couples.
We do like to have an equal number of males and females to bring about a balance in masculine and feminine energy work.
There is no sex as part of the group structure.

This training will be in English (and in Finnish if needed.)

During each weekend, we will explore one chakra, taking 7 weekends to complete the whole journey. You are not obliged to attend the chakra weekends in any particular order and you can come for just one workshop, you don’t have to do all 7. The workshop weekends are every 3-4 months.

“Everyone seeks fulfilment in one way or another. True fulfilment is only possible if all seven chakras are open and flowing. However, even if only one or two chakras are opened up, a person will already begin experiencing great joy in life.” -Sarita

Tantra For Couples Part 1.

8 – 10.2.2019

 

Life as a couple and as a family brings up many challenges nowadays. The intensivity and limitless possibilities are driving us into separate directions easily. Tantracourse has been created to bring more joy, pleasure and deeper connection into the relationship- not to forget the playfullness. In the course Pragita and Sudeva are creating a loving and supporting athmosphere, where couples can relax and find a new way of connecting. We can find also new ways how to meet our partner in connection and intimate life. For us tantra is pleasure of the body, relaxing and becoming sensitive in many different ways without pressure and demands. With tantric exercises we learn how to approve ourselves as we are; feeling and sexual beings. We learn how to love and listen to our bodies. Tantra helps us to enjoy our energy, ourselves and our partners. We can find new understanding, pleasure, approval to our dailylife and relationships by using the method of tantra.

In the tantra course we:

  • find a new connection with our partner
  • find ability for deeply loving intimacy
  • use breath for energising and empowering our lives
  • move towards ecstasy of our bodies
  • search for healthy boundaries and good communication

Price and booking

Price for the course is 340 €/person. You can also pay the course in two parts, first part is 150€/person.
Price includes accommodation and food.

Breathe, Trauma and Sexuality

14 – 17.2.2019 with Dwari

 

We all need loving relationships that are nourishing and sexually satisfying; instead we often avoid closeness with other people, because we do not know how to meet open and vulnerable. We are afraid to be rejected and to open the old traumatic wounds of our childhood again.

The sensual contact to our vital life-energy and the experience of an innocent pleasure in our own body is lost and often we end up trying hard to fulfill idealistic expectations of our partners.

The outcome is that we feel disappointed and frustrated, driven by vague longing, which seem to be never really fulfilled.

This groups invites you find back to your childlike spontaneity and to discover the sensing voice of your body and the personal rhythm of you heart again – beyond all conditioned ideas.

When you start accepting yourself as a man or a woman you can drop the old game and move into a new freedom where you can express your sexual energy in a clear and playful way – knowing that it is your basic life energy in which you can trust and let go. That is the movement into Tantra

Out of that experience you can also relax with others and create deeper intimacy. A loving meeting where we discover through rituals, breath and sensitivity exercises the male and female energy in ourselves.

Issues

  • from fear of rejection to self-love
  • defensive strategies in relating
  • three stages of relating: self-love, passion and compassion
  • give and take in relationship
  • tantric flow
  • healthy dynamics of relating
  • male – female polarity
  • the chakra relating map
  • meditation and relating

In the interplay between meeting with the others and coming back to yourself in meditative aloneness you explore a new dimension of love and relating.

To transform sex into spirituality is my basic approach. 
Meditation and love should go hand in hand. 
If we can create a world where lovers are meditators too.Then there will be no problem.

Family Constellation with Dwari

21 – 24.2.2019

 

Family Constellation is a powerful method for recognizing family entanglements. Most often unexpected, solution-oriented interventions bring relaxation and understanding in deep human problem situations and allow love to flow again between the members of the family system. Like in any other system, there are laws operating in a family system which guide the individual’s behaviour. To a large extent, they are unspoken and individuals are even unaware of them.

The method of bringing the hidden family dynamics to light is to have a person from a group create the constellation of his or her family with the help of other group members. They represent members of the person’s family and are positioned in the room in relation to each other depending on how the person feels at that moment. In this way, a living model of the original family is created. By creating the structure or constellation of the family with the help of other group members, the relationships and operating laws within the system become visible. Through rearranging the constellation and using simple sentences the therapist supports an inner movement of the members of the family towards a new and healing picture that is more in harmony with a natural order.

Dwari has been working as a therapist for 30 years. She has been trained for three years in Breath Therapy with Prof. Ilse Middendorf in Berlin. Further training followed in Rebirthing, Bioenergetics, Primal Work and Counseling, Tantra and Energy Work, Family Constellation, as well as Somatic Experiencing. Meeting Osho in 1977 shifted her focus in life and work toward meditation.
She is a trainer in the Osho Breath Energy Training and teaches Family Constellation in different international therapy institutes. Her work with people focuses on inner transformation and holistic healing.

Primal Group with Premartha and Svarup

26.2 – 5.3.2019

This Primal group allows you to travel back in time to explore what painful situations in your past still affect the way you live and love today. It also brings you back to the many positive and inspirational moments that you have already lived, alone and with others. When you can recall with all your senses the situations in which you felt loved, seen, heard and supported, these imprints become alive again. They become resources. You will learn how to bring these resources to the past and transform it, and to allow the healing to happen also in your present life. An alchemy will happen. Your system will relax, and a new future will open

The split we carry, between what we feel inside and what we think we should be on the outside, needs healing. Inside us still lives a child, which was born full of natural gifts, overflowing with sensitivity and connectedness with existence and people. In the past, this child has not felt supported in its true nature, and has learnt to renounce its longings. This child is still alive inside us, asking us to be true to ourselves and others. When we welcome this child back into our adult life, a transformation can happen: anger becomes compassion, fear becomes trust.

This deep and intense exploration is moving further back in time, reconnecting with earlier life issues, such as birth, pregnancy and conception. It offers more and different tools to understand and release the most unconscious layers of our personality.

In this group you will be accompanied step by step back in time, through the stages of your development, recovering parts of yourself at each stage. You will experience the rules and roles that have been imposed on you by your surrounding, and how they have molded a false personality around you. You will be supported to express and release old emotions that block the flow of vitality in your body. You will explore your family setup with depth and compassion, completing what has remained unfinished. By healing yourself at the roots, you will have access again to your potential, and you can celebrate the lightness and freedom of being that is regained when the old weight you carried has dissolved.

Price and booking

Check the registration instructions at the registration page.

Price for the course is 1050€. Early bird price is 980€ if you pay before 10.2.2019!
You can also pay the course in two parts, first part is 300€.
Price includes accommodation and food.

NIDRÂ YOGA

By the practices of “sleep, dream, and death,” which induce a state of deep relaxation and a very intense state of consciousness, the Nidrâ Yoga practitioner learns to penetrate his conscious, subconscious, and unconscious states with all their content (emotions, fears, doubts and patterns) in a detached way which leads to an intimate sensation of joy, peace and liberty.

Sleep: The first part of the practice uses conscious thought to create a state of deep relaxation in each part of the physical body (muscles, organs, bones) and simultaneously to develop a very sharp perception of all its components. At this level of the practice, one also calms all sensory processes making their functioning more dynamic.

Dream: The second part approaches the process of thought and mental imagery. It consists of freeing energy which is accumulated and imprisoned in mental images, subconscious memories, mental and psychic patterns, and enabling this freed energy to flow. This work is better known under the term of freeing samskâras (deep latent memories which could turn out to have important repercussions, notably blockages within the body and the psyche). In this part of the work, one also approaches the thought process, its role, limits, activities and repercussions on one’s attitude.

Death: In the third part, nidrâ yoga approaches the origin and end (“death”) of thought. Having traveled the maze of thought in the waking state, in the daydream, and in the different degrees of nocturnal dreaming (personal, collective and archetypal), this last stage consists of identifying the conscious-witness in going to the heart of deep sleep (sleep without dreams). This conscious-witness allows us to know that one has slept even though not a single memory of this phase of sleep remains.

The formal teaching of nidrâ yoga finds its end there. However, at this point, it allows for a further phase of transmission developing in a natural and spontaneous way. By sudden and unexpected touches, it reveals the nature of Being in all its purity: the One and the Multiple are at the same time identical and different. What emerges is an exploration of the self and of surrender.

Tantric Body De-armouring

Level 1

with Sunny Ju and Corine

9 – 14.4.2019

TANTRIC BODY DE-ARMOURING, LEVEL 1. WITH SUNNY AND CORINE 9 – 14.4.2019.

 

Created by Andrew Barnes, facilitated by Sunny Ju & Corine Lavrijssen.

Tantric Body De-armouring (TBD) process uses a combination of movement, massage, trigger point release, stretching and more.

In this 5,5-day retreat, you will be introduced to the keys for illuminating your own vibrational frequency so you can step into the joy of awakened, embodied being.

TBD enables us to let go of holding patterns that lower our vibrational frequency and stand in the way of our full enjoyment of life.

These patterns are composed of unresolved sexual stress, corresponding emotional imbalances, and physical tensions. Many people unknowingly carry these limitations throughout their entire lives and wonder why they are so difficult to move through. TBD offers a simple solution to transcend the old cycle of constantly having to ‘heal ourselves’.

In a safe, supportive environment, you can set yourself free of the armouring that lowers your vibration, and begin to experience the ecstatic, creative energy of your own unbounded sexual life-force force in preparation for levels 2 and 3.

This retreat is for men and women, singles and couples of all sexual orientations who want to expand their horizons and access their full potential. You’ll learn new practices and get to know yourself more clearly than you ever have before.

As a participant, you will learn to integrate internal feminine and masculine energies, which will change the way you experience your life, sexuality, and interactions in relationships.

During the Workshop You Will Also Explore:

• Exchange Tantric Body De-armouring sessions with other participants.
• Explore Orgastic Breath Dance Meditations.
• Generate, build, and breathe sexual energy into the higher level chakras and glands of your body.
• Liberate your capacity to experience bliss states throughout all the cells in your body.
• Use your sexual energies as fuel for living as opposed to operating each day on will-power and adrenaline.
• Reach new personal levels of self-expression and freedom in sensuality and sexuality.
• Apply our unique and practical Relationship Map as an approach for all areas of your life.
• Re-pattern your nervous system to build your capacity for greater pleasure.
• Experience the transformational power of the Reconciliation Ritual.
• Learn about the Wheel of Consent and how to feel real YES and NO in the different layers of your body

It is conscious awareness and acceptance of our whole self – and the freedom to communicate our truth – that empowers us to create the life we long to live. This highly experiential, fun, intense, and expansive retreat is for people seeking to expand their personal freedom and enhance their pleasure in being.

Note: At the beginning of our retreat we will establish guidelines and boundaries so that every participant feels fully honored and supported in moving only as fast and as far as their sense of safety permits. No one is required to do anything they do not want to do, and we will create a social group without peer group pressure, so each person decides their level of involvement.

Tantra Consciousness

9 – 12.5.2019

Tantra Consciousness 9 – 12.5.2019

Tantra is far more than a technique to have satisfying sex.

It offers us a way out of our involuntary and exhausting mental activity, introduces us to the here and now, opens up an ocean of sensations and feelings, teaches us how to meet our beloved in deep acceptance and points us towards an integration that can radically change the quality of life we create for ourselves.

And, yes, Tantra also allows us to reach to a state of intimacy that celebrates sexual energy as part of being alive and, at the same time, enjoys the meeting of the male and female principle in vulnerability and awareness.

These days are an experiential immersion into the basic elements of Tantra and, maybe, the first step into a lifelong adventure.

 

HOMA & MUKTO

Homa and Mukto are great friends with very different perceptions of life. It’s these differences that keep their work fresh and alive

Inspired by the visionary mystic Osho, their workshops are a synthesis of therapy and a direct experience of the present moment. Having met Osho over three decades ago their lives underwent radical change and it soon became clear they had a passion and gift for working with people.

Over the years they’ve received training from many world class therapists and meditation teachers in a variety of approaches.

Their work is unique and creates the ground for the magic of transformation. For the last several years they have specialized in Tantra, liberating sexual energy in a context of love and awareness.

From 2006 to 2015 they led tantra groups in the OSHO resort in Pune, India.

Currently they share their work in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

For the rest of the year they live in Fortaleza, Brazil at Osheanic International, the venue of their yearly Tantra Trainings.

In this part of the work, one also approaches the thought process, its role, limits, activities and repercussions on one’s attitude.

Death: In the third part, nidrâ yoga approaches the origin and end (“death”) of thought. Having traveled the maze of thought in the waking state, in the daydream, and in the different degrees of nocturnal dreaming (personal, collective and archetypal), this last stage consists of identifying the conscious-witness in going to the heart of deep sleep (sleep without dreams). This conscious-witness allows us to know that one has slept even though not a single memory of this phase of sleep remains.

The formal teaching of nidrâ yoga finds its end there. However, at this point, it allows for a further phase of transmission developing in a natural and spontaneous way. By sudden and unexpected touches, it reveals the nature of Being in all its purity: the One and the Multiple are at the same time identical and different. What emerges is an exploration of the self and of surrender.
