a revolution in consciousness
OSHO Dynamic Meditation
is one of a group of OSHO Active Meditations,
specifically designed for contemporary people
to experience meditation.
Clearly, the term 'Dynamic Meditation'
is a contradiction in terms,
because, 'Dynamic' means 'Effort'
and 'Meditation' means 'Silence'.
No Effort, No Activity.
In this revolutionary method from Osho,
the activity is used to create and then release energy,
repressed tension and emotions,
to prepare the way for an experience of silence.
This meditation is a specific response to a situation of restlessness,
tension and repression
that arises in modern society.
We're the most restless beings ever
to evolve on this earth.
First, we begin with intense physical activity,
building energy to a peak
which then allows us the opportunity
to throw out our repressed madness and insanity.
After the active stages,
we can have an experience of silence.
This meditation will leave you alert,
and newly energized with a deep experience of relaxation,
and your inner silence.
The magic of the meditation is
the immediacy of the meditation.
You do this once,
and it will change your life.
And if you keep practising, it's like every time you do it, there's
more to see, more to understand about
who you are as a human being, as an individual.
... because, I really...
got in touch with something...
some deep source of energy.
And, I couldn't believe how much I can...
how much energy I have.
And, through the whole day I was so energetic.
People were asking me, "What's... what is it?
What's happening with you?"
This meditation
is a fast, intense,
and a thorough way,
to break old ingrained patterns in the BodyMind
that keep us imprisoned in the past,
and, to experience the freedom,
the witnessing,
silence and peace
that are hidden behind these prison walls.
The meditation lasts one hour,
and has five stages.
Keep your eyes closed throughout using a blindfold,
if necessary.
This is a meditation
in which you have to be continuously alert,
whatsoever you do.
Remain a witness.
And when,
in the fourth stage,
you have become completely inactive,
then this alertness
will come to its peak.
First Stage:
10 minutes
Breathing chaotically through the nose,
let breathing be intense,
without rhythm,
with no pattern,
and concentrating always
on the exhalation.
The body will take care of the inhalation.
The breath should move deeply into the lungs.
Do this as fast and as hard as you possibly can,
until you literally become the breathing.
Use your natural body movements
to help you build up your energy.
Feel it building up,
but don't let go during the first stage.
Second Stage:
10 minutes
Let go of everything that needs to be thrown out.
Follow your body.
Give your body freedom
to express whatsoever is there.
Go totally mad.
Throw yourself around.
Hold nothing back.
Keep your whole body moving.
A little acting often helps to get you started.
Never allow your mind to interfere with what is happening.
go mad.
Be total.
If your meditation space
prevents you from making noise,
then you can do a silent alternative.
Rather than throwing out the sounds,
let the catharsis take place entirely through body movements.
Third Stage:
10 minutes
With arms raised high above your head,
jump up and down,
shouting the mantra,
"Hoo... Hoo... Hoo!"
as deeply as possible.
Each time you land,
on the flats of your feet,
let the sound hammer
deep into the sex center.
Give all you have.
Exhaust yourself completely.
If your meditation space
prevents you from making noise,
then you can do a silent alternative.
The sound "Hoo"
can be hammered silently
Fourth Stage:
15 minutes
Freeze wherever you are,
in whatever position you find yourself.
Don't arrange the body in any way.
A cough, a movement,
will dissipate the energy flow
and the effort will be lost.
Be a witness to everything that is happening to you.
Fifth Stage:
15 minutes
With music
and dance,
express whatsoever is there.
Carry your aliveness with you, throughout the day.
The first time I did OSHO Dynamic Meditation was
really one of the most shocking experiences of my life.
I was
so impacted by the effect of
going through these
components of the meditation.
I mean, first of all,
it was not easy.
It was not easy at all.
It's an intense meditation.
That's why it's called Dynamic Meditation.
Dynamic completely blew me away,
and I did it pretty much every day for eight months.
And, it was an
intense experience.
Completely changed
who I thought I was.
The first stage consists of
chaotic fast breathing through the nose
where you fill your body up with
the thing with the first stage is you have to do it totally.
And, the more totally you do it,
the breathing takes over,
and breathe itself.
So, finally you are not putting effort to breathe.
The breathing just takes you, and you lose control in the breathing.
And you fill your body, charge your body full
of energy,
and prepare yourself for the rest of the meditation.
This breathing was very difficult,
specially like
the emphasis was
on the out-breath, not the in-breath.
And, somehow after the breathing...
during the breathing, almost after the breathing,
I realized that my shoulder was totally...
you know... like touching my head...
and I was really holding like this,
instead of breathing out,
instead of letting out.
I had to constantly
change my rhythm,
because, as soon as I
was in a rhythm, my mind was comfortable.
And, I recognized
that I had to break the comfort zone of the mind.
Initially when I see people come for the first time, the breathing is
difficult for them,
especially breathing deeply.
It usually stops here,
or it hits the resistance point where they hold...
where the holding of emotions takes place,
because, this is... they don't want to feel
what is
being liberated by the breathing.
Now, Dynamic Meditation,
in the beginning,
where we actually deliberately move oxygen to these places, and
activate them,
and bring them out
so we can cathart them in the second stage.
And, it's the only way to cleanse yourself,
you have to really get down there and get dirty in a way.
And... and...
repressed, unpleasant,
laid to rest emotions and feelings.
Also, I mean, if
once you don't breathe
the second stage naturally become also difficult, because...
because, nothing has been activated.
The second stage is
and, when you breathe totally in the first stage,
what happens is
that you bring so much
energy charge to the body...
that all you have to do then is
to let go into the intelligence of the body,
because, the body knows how to release
all the old tensions, and pains, and hurts.
And in the
second stage you allow that release to happen.
You lose control.
I've been somebody, who when I came here,
and started Dynamic Meditation,
I had a lot of control.
And, the Dynamic really helped me
to break that control in the second stage.
And, so, it's all it is... is just
listening to the intelligence of the body, and the body
releases naturally the old pains and traumas.
I was
very much in control of my emotions.
And, out of nowhere, I started to get extremely angry.
I was so angry!
And, what was really amazing was it that there was no reason to be angry.
There was nobody to be angry at.
There was no
situation that could create anger. It was just
something in me
was releasing like a pent up rage,
I had never been so angry before, actually.
When I shouted, I just looked around.
You know, like...
is anybody looking at me?
Or, when I started, like, crying,
I felt kind of something... somebody must be watching me.
Probably, there was some kind of conditioning
which I had
that girls should not speak loud.
Girls should not cry loud.
Let's say,
girls should not express their emotions.
As a Korean,
I was growing up in that kind of environment that
girls should be silent.
It's pretty amazing
what you do and how crazy you can get.
And, you wouldn't even believe yourself
if you were watching yourself at that moment.
I've felt it before. It's a...
we're so confined many times.
Do this, don't do that. When you're a child,
don't cry, don't laugh, don't scream, don't shout.
So, when you start screaming, and shouting, and laughing, and...
you feel free,
and not only free, but with an energy.
You could... you're just...
you get to explode.
When the catharsis of the second stage is brought to a peak,
the third 10 minute stage begins
as we vigorously repeat the mantra "Hoo".
If you repeat "Hoo" continously,
you'll find that the center of your life
is hit again and again.
The energy that's been awakened through breathing,
and expressed through catharsis
begins to move inward and upward.
The mantra re-channels the energy.
Before, it was moving downward and outward.
Now, it begins to move inward and upward.
And, we've had actually
high class athletes come in
and try the technique.
And, they suddenly ran into a lot of difficulty.
They were really scratching their heads afterwards
like what has happened. I can't do this.
because they were used to
using, first of all... using more muscular strength,
rather than
energetic strength,
which comes from much deeper layers of your being.
My mind was saying, "You can't do this. This is impossible."
The beauty for me of doing that in a group was that there was...
I could feel, I could hear everybody else doing it,
without stopping.
So, it was kind of like, well yes, I can.
My mind was saying I can't but
I know I could feel it around me that everybody else was.
So, that was a very nice impetus and support for me to...
go through with the... the full...
time and jumping the whole time with the mantra, "Hoo".
And, I really felt a kind of a...
another level of energy
in my body that I wasn't really aware of before.
Like there was a source of energy that I could tap
through this meditation.
The jumping up and down, arms raised, with the...
flats of the feet
hitting the ground,
for some people it is difficult, especially keeping the arms up.
But, what that does, if you really keep your arms up,
you open that whole liver, gall bladder meridian.
That really opens up your life force.
And, you can really become that pillar of energy.
What I found helpful is
to really work with the sound, because, the sound has a rebound.
If you really can synchronize the sound with the hitting the ground,
there's a rebound. And on that rebound,
after some time,
you do almost jump as if
by itself.
It jumps. It's not really you that's jumping anymore.
Go on hammering the sound "Hoo" within,
until the whole being becomes nothing but the sound.
Exhaust yourself completely.
Only then does the fourth stage, the meditation happen.
When you've become vacant and empty,
only then this sound can move within you.
The movement of the sound is possible only when you are empty.
You have to stop completely as you are.
Then don't move. Don't do anything.
If your hand is raised,
if you're in a dancing posture,
or you're jumping,
then and there.
Now, you simply stop doing anything.
And, you start watching.
What happens when you really start watching?
All that energy that has built up in the previous stages...
it can...
it's almost as if it jumps in an empty ground, and
it can become pure awareness.
It's a pure raised state of energy.
The difficulty that I found most here in America is how to
relate to people
to stop doing,
because, the collective here is so geared towards
through action, through doing, controlling
your environment, controlling yourself
through being in action,
through being doing something.
That's why acting is such a big thing in America.
It's all about doing and action.
So what I meet a lot here is that
then they want to do the 'Stop' too.
But, it's so difficult to relate that
it's not about doing the 'Stop', it's about stopping the doing.
In the stillness,
the mind was... it was amplified,
it was like the mind had a microphone.
And, it was telling me to move,
to wipe the sweat from my brow,
or to scratch my nose, or
to do anything to move.
And, at the outset,
I would follow my mind.
If my mind said, "Wipe your brow.", I would wipe my brow.
And, then I started to notice that
as soon as I moved I lost the sensation of energy in my body,
because, in the stillness,
the thing that's most
profound, let's say,
was this experience of energy.
Like my body had never felt so alive.
I'd never felt so alive.
And, as soon as I listened to my mind and followed my mind,
I lost that sensation.
And, it's such a wonderful feeling that
eventually I just wanted to stay in the energy of it.
I wanted to stay with my hands up.
I didn't want to move, because, I knew immediately
that I would lose
the blissfulness
of the stillness.
You start dancing,
whatever you feel in that moment.
Again it's
brought me into my everyday life
that I started feeling
that anything can be celebrated.
The easiest way to see the results
is to
walk home after Dynamic,
and, hear the birds chirp, and,
really keep that space of
celebration even as you walk home.
I've been doing it in New York city,
and, it's even possible in New York city.
Dynamic Meditation
to be total, means
to not hold anything back,
to bring your total energy,
life to this technique.
if you don't do that
what usually happens is, either one economizes,
or one gives space
for the mind, for the dreaming mind, to come back in.
When I did it with totality,
then there's no pain.
Maybe there is a pain, maybe the body feels some pain,
but, when I'm telling you it's like
you know, there is some kind of
how you say, like...
some kind of feeling, that I've completed, I've done it with a totality,
I didn't leave anything behind,
but, I was totally into it.
Then this kind of fulfillment
makes myself totally rich.
This was really the meditation that required the most commitment,
and the most totality.
It required my totality in my breath,
it required the totality of my body,
of my stillness, of my dance, of my celebration.
It's really the meditation of totality.
...because, it's a meditation of energy.
And, what it does is it allows energy to open up
and release throughout the whole body.
And when one can allow that
and one is connected to themselves,
to others and to the whole.
I would have said, "Dynamic would change your life,
for the better."
Now, I'd have to say,
"Just do it."
If you want exercise, you can go to the gym.
This meditation will give you exercise too.
But, the real point is meditation, and,
if you want to taste it,
this is...
there's no other hour
that I know about,
...one hour that can give it to you.
