2012 Winter Osho Meditation Intensive in New York
6 days of meditation, celebration & community living in nature

(Dec 21 - Dec 26, 2012)


We are glad to invite you to the 2012 annual Osho winter festival of meditation and celebration. Join fellow seekers in exploration of the inner self and spend the holiday season in a vibrant community of like-minded people.

Main highlights:

1)      Six-day Osho meditation intensive - with Osho sannyasins Shanti and Subhan including various meditations like Zen, tantric,  Sufi  & unique techniques given to them personally by Osho. Active Meditation techniques have been designed by Osho specifically for the modern mind to allow us to express & release the repressed feelings with awareness, and reaching a meditative state naturally.

2)      Centering in the Ordinary - led by Shanti – learning how to weave meditations into our daily life. This will set a context for work as meditation program & allow us to bring a quality of meditation to our, daily life chores.

3)      OSHO Meditation Facilitating training – led by Subhan

Facilitating is for everyone who wishes to go deeper in meditation, and for those who would like to develop more skills and confidence in introducing OSHO meditations to others. This can be in the context of simply wanting to share with friends and colleagues; or for professionals such as doctors, nurses, therapists, teachers, meditation camp leaders who want to feel more grounded and at home in presenting and supporting these meditation methods.

Wherever you are, become more centered, become more alert, live more consciously. There is nowhere else to go. Everything that has to happen, has to happen within you, and it is in your hands. You are not a puppet, and your strings are not in anybody else's hands. You are an absolutely free individual. If you decide to remain in illusions, you can remain so for many, many lives. If you decide to get out, a single moment's decision is enough.

You can be out of all illusions this very moment.- OSHO

Finding the work you Love , Finding the Life you Love, NY. Oct 26-28, 2012.

E-mail Print PDF

Join us for a 2-day Osho Meditation Retreat "Finding the work you Love , Finding the Life you Love" with Swami Subhan Oct 26-28, 2012.

We are at “work” more than anything else we do in our entire life! So, whatever we do and whatever we get from our work has a profound impact on the way we live. How is your work (or lack of work) affecting your life? How can you find a career or job that satisfies you – creatively, financially and spiritually? What stands in your way? And how can you deal with these obstacles to create the life you really want?

This workshop helps you resolve these questions through four inquiries:

 

  • How can I discover what I enjoy…what fulfills me?
  • How do I translate what I enjoy into real marketplace opportunities?
  • What are the obstacles that stop me from pursuing my ideas and dreams?
  • And, how do I deal with these obstacles?

 

What better time than NOW to begin the exploration that can help you get to where you want to be?!

Join us for this Adventure…the work and the life you want are waiting for you!

This weekend workshop is facilitated by Swami Partho Subhan (Subhan Schenker), certified career counselor, and facilitator of these workshops internationally - in Europe, Asia Mexico and the U.S. - for over twenty-two years (including over thirteen years at North Seattle Community College). Subhan has a background in law and business, and has been a group facilitator and a Osho disciple for thirty three years and lived in his communities in India and the US in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s..

The workshop will have Osho meditations involving activities to release of emotions , & gentle stillness and silence meditations, and intertwined with interactive sessions with Subhan & celebration throughout the weekend; all to support the growth of love and awareness in our lives!

This is his Second retreat in New York. The Glimpses of his previous retreat is available here.

This is a great opportunity to be in the presence of Swami Subhan for both beginners as well as advanced seekers. There will also be an opportunity to take "Sannyas" (Initiation into Osho Disciplehood) during the retreat.

Dates: Friday, October 26, 2012 7:00 PM to Sunday, October 28, 2012, 5:00 PM (We will start from Friday evening 7:00 PM)

Venue: DAYS INN EAST STROUDSBURG
838 Seven Bridge Rd, East Stroudsburg,
PA 18301 US (US 209 / I 80 Exit 309)
