OSHO® Meditation Groups

LUNCHTIME OSHO: Every Wednesday, 1
- 2pm, at Healthy Spirit Ltd,37 Barlow Moor Road, Manchester M20 6TW

EVENING OSHO: Every Thursday, 7
- 8.15pm, at The Ki Retreat, 1A Chadwick Road, Eccles, Lancashire M30 0NZ

Cost: £10 per class

Do you find passive meditations difficult or cannot seem to sit still? Do you want to experience how movement, sound and breath can create space for change, stress release and transformation? Do you like OSHO® Active meditations? Then this is the group for you!

OSHO® Active Meditations are scientifically designed for the modern age. Each meditation begins with activity and physical movements such as shaking, dancing, sound, breathing and each has its own music specifically created to guide the participant through each stage. The active stages help to release accumulated tensions in the body-mind allowing the natural energy flow to move. This way, in the passive stages, you can move into stillness being the witness of whatever is happening inside. No Previous experience is required, loose clothing should be worn and yoga mats are useful.

All of the OSHO® Active meditations are shared according to the instructions in Meditation: The First and Last Freedom and each of them are accompanied by the music specifically created for them.

Shakti Tantra introductory events are practical, experiential workshops which introduce techniques that can be applied immediately in everyday life, to enrich our inner lives, our creativity and our relationships. Tantra teaches that sex is sacred, that our aliveness as sexual beings is the dynamo of our being by healing the barriers we have created between sex, heart and spirit. The Tantric practices we teach open us up to a greater capacity to experience pleasure in all things and free us to expand emotionally and spiritually. During this introductory evening for women we will explore how we can connect and create a more nourishing and intimate relationship with our own bodies and vitality.

Tantra 4 Gay Men news;

Tantra - Touch, Massage and Intimacy Afternoon (gay)

Saturday 14 March

1:45pm to 5:30pm

Manchester

Early Bird Price: £25

Facilitated by Steve, in this afternoon you will be gently guided on a 3.5 hour exploration of Tantra. The afternoon's programme is great if you want to connect with other men in a loving and sensual way that is more intimate than the way men typically meet.

This will be held on a monthly basis whereby each afternoon the content and practices are different, but all focus is on the side of sensual rather than sexual connections and on open and loving hearts that welcome all, as well as the possibility to learn more about yourself and the basics of Tantra.

It’s likely you will be guided to start moving around the room, meeting others with eye gazing, and light sensual touch. You’ll still be clothed at this point and everything is done slowly to help you slowly relax and settle into the afternoon.

As the afternoon progresses, it’s likely to be some form of undressing ritual, sensual and loving touch that feels delightful and arousing. There will be different massage techniques to learn, new ways of giving and receiving pleasure and different Tantric Rituals and technique practices. All of these are designed to help you discover new potentials in terms of arousal, of an awakened body state called the Ecstatic Body, and to help you feel more free, more relaxed, more alive and more connected to other men.

Path of Love Retreat
 
Thurs 19th - Thurs 26th March
 
Avalon, Broughton Hall Estate, Skipton, Yorkshire BD23 3AN
 
The Path of Love 7-day retreat is one of the most intensive and life-changing processes in the world today. Established 22 years ago in India, this residential meditation and personal development retreat is now conducted in 14 countries around the world and in six languages. It has gained an extraordinary reputation amongst people who really want to come to know the truth about themselves.

Wherever we look, we see the effects of polarisation and separation, in both our inner and outer worlds. We long for real connection: to live at a deeper and more meaningful level and to connect more authentically with ourselves and others, but depression, anxiety, addiction, dissatisfaction, and loneliness are at epidemic levels. We feel more alienated and emotionally detached from other people than we ever have before.

Path of Love is about closing this gap. A profound inner work, it combines a variety of psychological and spiritual approaches to help us reclaim parts of ourselves that we have lost, and encompasses an uncompromising focus on truth and trust. It provides essential tools for establishing connection and loving relationships with ourselves and others.

Awakening Shakti (women)

Brightlife Spa, Ballalheaney House, Andreas, Isle of Man IM7 4EN
 
17 - 19 July
 
Shakti is the Sanskrit word for power, life-force energy and the Divine Feminine. In the Tantra-yoga tradition, it is regarded both as the energy that creates all that is manifest as well as sexual energy which, when awakened, expands our consciousness. At a time when a global re-balancing of the masculine and feminine is taking place, women are feeling the call to break free from old values and beliefs, that have kept them at war with themselves and one another; disconnected from their greatest potential. They sense that there is a vast untapped power and mystery residing within, that ignites when it is called: Shakti. Awakening this current of Divine Feminine energy takes us onto a path of full-bodied spirituality and authentic empowerment, that reclaims our bodies as cosmically wise, our sex as sacred and our flowing nature as strong and beautiful. With Shakti, our Feminine shakes itself loose of the fetters of conditioning to reveal a re-wilded woman, who unites her divided self and needs no external validation to know her worth or feel radiant, abundant, ecstatic and loved.

Over this weekend Retreat for all women of any age or life-stage, we will open ourselves to the magic of Shakti through 4 stages of: embodiment, awakening, transformation and integration, with processes to include circle sharing and guided self-enquiry, meditation, energy activation, Goddess archetype invocation, yoga, chanting and dance. Each participant will be welcomed and met wherever she is in her life, so that space is given for individual needs and questions.
No prior experience of this kind of work is necessary, although you will be asked to complete a brief welcome form to support our preparations.
