OSHO Dynamic Meditation

From the Head to the Heart to the Belly ​

Osho Dynamic Meditation is the express train among the meditation techniques. If you live your life stuck in your head there is no other meditation technique that could accomblish this so fast: Helping you move from the head to the heart to the belly so fast. 

 

Osho explains: "I use chaotic methods, because chaotic methods turn off the mind ... They are so chaotic that the center is automatically shifted from the mind to the heart, and that's a big step - to shift from the head to the heart. So if you use my method in a powerful, unsystematic, chaotic way, your center will be shifted downwards, you will come into your heart.

When you come into your heart I use catharsis because your heart is completely suppressed - suppressed by your mind. Your mind has taken up so much space, it is so dominant, it has swallowed everything. There is no more room for the heart, so all longings of the heart have been suppressed. You never laughed from your heart, you never cried from your heart, you never did anything from your heart. The heart is suppressed ...

So I first use chaotic methods to shift the center - the center of your awareness - from the mind to the heart, then catharsis is needed to relieve the heart, to throw out all oppression, to make it easy. When the heart becomes light, the center of awareness is shifted even lower. It reaches the navel, and the navel is the source of your vitality. It is the source, it is the seed from which everything arises: the body, the mind, everything else ... 

The consciousness has to be shifted down to the source, to the roots. Transformation is only possible then. "

Osho Dynamic Meditation, like the many other Osho Active Meditations, works on a level that is beyond the cognitive mind. With this, inner blockages and suppressed emotions can be released effectivly and permanently. The result is not just greater serenity. Over time, these active meditations can also be used to resolve stubborn patterns that have adversely affected our lives. In the long term, these methods contribute to greater inner freedom, more zest for life and a free flow of energy.

Here is a great compilation of other Osho quotes on active meditation.

Curious? Then try it out for yourself.

You can do this together with others, for example at the OSHO UTA Institute in Cologne (7 a.m. daily). Here is more information about it.

You can also practice OSHO Dynamic Meditation at home by yourself. Below are instructions for doing this. Nevertheless, if you are new to meditation, I recommend that you practice it a few times together with others in a group. It helps! 😉

Instructions for OSHO Dynamic Meditation

​​

This meditation is a fast, intense and thorough way to break old, ingrained patterns in the bodymind that keep one imprisoned in the past, and to experience the freedom, the witnessing, silence and peace that are hidden behind those prison walls.

The meditation is meant to be done in the early morning, when “the whole of nature becomes alive, the night has gone, the sun is coming up and everything becomes conscious and alert.”

You can do this meditation alone, but to start with it can be helpful to do it with other people. It is an individual experience, so remain oblivious of others around you. Wear loose, comfortable clothing.

The meditation is to be done with its specific OSHO Dynamic Meditation music, which indicates and energetically supports the different stages. Here you can find the meditation music for Osho Dynamic Meditation

OSHO Dynamic Meditation lasts one hour and has five stages. The eyes remain closed throughout the meditation.

1st phase (10 min): Wild, irregular breathing

Breathe chaotically through your nose; just pay attention to the exhalation. The body takes care of the inhalation by itself. Breathe as fast and as hard as you can - and then a little harder - until you become the breathing. Use your body's natural movements to get more energy. Feel it gain weight, but don't allow it to let off steam in the first phase.

2nd phase (10 min): Explode!

Explode! Let out everything that wants to break out. Go totally crazy. Scream, shout, cry, hop, shake, dance, sing, laugh, jump around. Don't hold back, keep your whole body moving. In the beginning, you can use a little acting to get into it. Don't let your head interfere. Be total, be there with all your heart.

3rd phase (10 min): Jump and down with your arms raised

Jump up and down with your arms raised and shout the mantra “Huh! Huh! Huh! " as deep from the belly as possible. Every time you land on your feet, let that sound pound into your sex center.

Give all you have, totally exhaust yourself.

4th phase (15 min): Freeze

Stop! Freeze and stay in the exact position you are in. Do not try to make the body comfortable. One cough, the slightest movement, and the energy is dissipated and all the effort is lost. Watch everything that happens to you.

5th phase (15 min): (Yourselves) Celebrate

Let go and celebrate. Go with the music, dance, express your gratitude to creation and take this feeling of happiness with you into the day.

Clothing

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. It is helpful to have enough space for the movement phase. If you stretch out your arms and turn around in a circle, there should be enough space.
