Give yourself time to experience the transforming power of
Silent Meditation. Through watching or witnessing the dust settles, and clarity, insights and understanding arise.

Osho revitalizes Vipassana, bringing a friendly relaxed approach so that meditation deepens easily and becomes “ a juicy experience ” that continues into daily life.
It is also possible to practice Zazen, sitting with eyes open, gazing softly into the garden.
Individual meditation counseling is available to share and ask questions to help you deepen your inner journey.

It's simple yet powerful meditation technique. Vipassana was founded by the Buddha some 2500 years ago. Yet, it has lasted the test of time due to is simplicity and effectiveness in bringing calm to the mind and body by raising one's awareness.

"There are hundreds of methods of meditation, but perhaps Vipassana has a unique status; just the same way as there have been thousands of mystics, but Gautam Buddha has a uniqueness of his own. In many ways he is incomparable. In many ways he has done more for humanity than anybody else. In many ways his search for truth was more sincere, more authentic than anybody else’s. The meaning – the literal meaning – of the word Vipassana is “to look,” and the metaphorical meaning is “to watch, to witness.”

Gautam Buddha has chosen a meditation that can be called the essential meditation. All other meditations are different forms of witnessing, but witnessing is present in every kind of meditation as an essential part; it cannot be avoided. Buddha has deleted everything else and kept only the essential part – to witness.

When you have become perfectly watchful of your body, mind and heart, then you cannot do anything more, then you have to wait. When perfection is complete on these three steps, the fourth step happens on its own accord as a reward. Suddenly your life force, your witnessing, enters into the very center of your being. You have come home."
