  • presents

  • 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,

  • refreshed,

  • and newly energized with a deep experience of relaxation,

  • awareness,

  • 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,

  • conscious,

  • aware,

  • whatsoever you do.

  • Remain a witness.

  • And when,

  • in the fourth stage,

  • you have become completely inactive,

  • frozen,

  • then this alertness

  • will come to its peak.

  • First Stage:

  • 10 minutes

  • Breathing chaotically through the nose,

  • let breathing be intense,

  • deep,

  • fast,

  • 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

  • EXPLODE!

  • 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.

  • Scream.

  • Shout.

  • Cry.

  • Jump.

  • Kick.

  • Shake.

  • Dance.

  • Sing.

  • Laugh.

  • 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.

  • Consciously,

  • 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

  • inside.

  • Fourth Stage:

  • 15 minutes

  • STOP!.

  • Freeze wherever you are,

  • in whatever position you find yourself.

  • Don't arrange the body in any way.

  • A cough, a movement,

  • anything

  • 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

  • Celebrate!

  • 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

  • energy.

  • And,

  • 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
