The opportunity to take a special dive into our inner "buddha"!
From 20 (evening) to 25 SEPTEMBER 2022 with Shunyo
In the beautiful Holistic Farmhouse Le Torracce in Valfabbrica, near Assisi (PG)
Towards the end of summer, after giving space to our "zorba" Osho Experience is organizing a wonderful experience of silence for our "buddha".
“All meditations are helpful... hundreds of techniques are available, but the essence of all those techniques is the same, just their forms differ. And the essence is contained in the meditation Vipassana. That is the meditation that has made more people in the world enlightened than any other because it is the very essence. All other meditations have the same essence, but in different forms; something nonessential is also joined with them. But vipassana is pure essence. You cannot drop anything out of it and you cannot add anything to improve it.” – OSHO
The Osho Vipassana
This is a rare opportunity to see what is possible when you give this time and space of meditation to yourself, away from your usual busy life. Through awareness of the breath you can watch, without getting involved, as your mind’s dramas slow down. Your thinking process settles when you withdraw your attention and involvement with it. It also brings to the surface and dissolves deep-seated complexes and tensions. It is a deep cleaning.
Vipassana is known as an insight meditation. An insight is an understanding that can happen, not through thinking, but through giving the thinking process a rest. In insight meditation you ‘know’ rather than think. To know an object during Vipassana meditation means to experience it with nonverbal awareness. You merely register the sensation with impartial attention, without identifying, judging or describing it.
Of course, the greatest results come through continued practice, but within these five days the essentials of Vipassana can be learned and experienced so that it can be applied in daily life. It is really a meditation for the market place, and once you get the knack of watching the breath then you can take it into everyday life. Simply to be inactive is already an invitation for the body-mind to relax. We will be in silence totally for the five days, and this will include not using the computer, or telephone.
Shunyo’s training in awareness began whilst living close to Osho for 14 years, as part of his household.. For the past 30 years she’s been travelling around the world conducting seminars, meditation trainings and retreats of Osho Neo Vipassana, which she leads also at the Osho Meditation Resort in Pune. Thanks to her vision centered on the heart, her very presence allows participants to reach deep levels of peace and tranquility. She narrated her experience of life with the Master in a wonderful book "My Diamond Days with Osho,", translated into many languages. Director of the "Osho Institute of Vipassana & Zazen".

"Meditation is pure bliss. As you go deeper, you will encounter more and more beautiful spaces, brighter and brighter places. They are your treasure... deeper and deeper silences, which are not just the absence of noise, but the presence of soundless songs. When you reach the extreme point of your being, the center of the cyclone, there you will find god, not as a person, but as light, as awareness, as truth, as beauty... as everything man has dreamed of for centuries."
