Some events will happen simultaneously, in order to know which one to choose, please go to the Info Point for information.
11.30-13.00 Living without fear with Prashantam. Your life is conditioned by fear and so you are never total and successful in whatever you do. There is a life free from fear where you feel to be the master of your behaviour. It is neither impossible or difficult.….it depends on how much you are willing to invest into yourself... to live a life as a free spirit. This workshop will guide you so you may encounter, understand and free yourself from your fears.
11.35-13.00 Zorba the Buddha: The Power of the Heart with Maneesha. What does it mean to be a Zorba and a Buddha together? How can we live Zorba the Buddha in this world, how can it change our daily life? In this workshop we will play with the alchemy that Osho has introduced in His meditations, the Zorba transmission of intense aliveness, integrated with deep silence and presence within the Buddha.
11.45-13.00 ONE: Your Infinite Nature with Ojas. Tandava is a spontaneous dance, it is the original yoga, sensual, slow: step by step the movement releases all muscular tensions and intentionality.

14.30-15.30 Giocameditando Adults with Aseel. Life is a game in which you participate by birthright. Developing a sense of responsibility can make you free to choose how you want to play. There is no right person, right job or right city that will make you happy. But, if you want, you can be happy and live a happy life by knowingly choosing what to do, how to do it, whom to do it with and where to do it.

17.15-18.30 Osho Kundalini Meditation. This meditation finds its best moment if done at sunset or late afternoon. Letting go totally into shaking and dancing during the first two stages helps dissolve stiffness wherever the flow of energy has been repressed and blocked. Then energy can flow, dance, and be transformed into joy and bliss.
19.00-20.00 Osho Evening Meeting. The evening meditation, described by Osho as: “Dissolving in the ocean of consciousness. That which cannot be said has to be experienced. This is a great experience of getting into the inner space. Something is experienced in this gathering, which no one has been able to define. This is the highest peak of the whole day's working, meditating or doing groups in the Commune.” Osho
21.45-23.15 Dance&Games with Somraj and Aseel. An evening to celebrate the festival as a chance to play, meet, share and meditate. We will try and feel what's happening inside us.

21.30-22.40 Osho Devavani Meditation. Devavani means "divine voice" and is an ancient technique that is found even in the Old Testament under the name of glossolalia i.e. "speaking in tongues". This technique deeply relaxes the mind donating a deep inner peace.

This event is about remembering that we brought Trust on to the planet the day we were born. It is one of our essential qualities. It is also a quality that was wounded in many ways in the early time in our lives, creating a sense of mistrust.
09.30-11.00 The Art of Love and the Man-Woman Polarity with Svagito. We explore the different dimensions of love and how to grow rather than ’fall’ in love.

This centering will make you aware of your existential roots: you will know that you are one with existence.
11.30-13.00 Family Constellations - The family and its calls with Siddho e Anurag. You will see how each of us is "entangled" in the unconscious dynamics within the family of origin. In the family there are often transgenerational traumas or events that have led to "systemic disorder". Often these events and traumas influence our destiny, how we see and approach life.

21.30-22.40 Osho Gourishankar Meditation. Osho says that if the breathing is done correctly in the first stage of this meditation the carbon dioxide formed in the bloodstream will make you feel as high as Gourishankar (Mt. Everest).

Playing is the key to accompany children on this path. Do not try to convince a child to meditate. You start to rediscover the value of meditation also through play. When you feel within yourself the joy of playing meditation, then children will be involved in your energy.
09.30-11.00 Flowing like Water with Radha. Love is like water, it wants to flow where it finds an open outlet.

11.30-13.00 Relationship Constellations - Succeeding in relationships with Siddho e Anurag. We all long for joyous, rich and overflowing relationships. Often this does not happen for unconscious reasons due to our bonds with our family of origins. This is even more painful when the difficulties in the couple are dumped on the children.

16.00-17.00 Systemic Constellation and Trauma Healing with Svagito. Trauma are part of life, they happen on individual levels and get passed on over generations through family bonding.

15.45-17.00 Light Up Your Life with Tarika. So much time and energy goes into wondering how we can do things better or what we are doing wrong.

11.30-13.00 Diving into Existence, with your own creativity and profession with Siddho e Anurag. The need to belong to a group is primary and at the same time limiting. The group gives us a feeling of security and protection. At the same time, it imposes rules and ideals that can limit our natural expression. This is also true within the family.
