Life is Education, Acceptance and Celebration! Keeping this aim in focus, a meditative camp was organized at Oshodham from May 25 to 29, 2005. Based on Osho's vision, a series of pulsating sessions was conducted and coordinated by Swami Chaitanya Keerti, Ma Dev Dakshina and friends.
During this five day camp, children were introduced to the art of centering through Osho's various meditation techniques like Gibberish, Kundalini, No-Dimension, Mystic Rose, Aum, Whirling and Stop Dance. The sessions were interwoven with heart touching activities such as "Heart Dance" or "Hugging the Trees".
This camp was an effort in the direction to make the child aware, so that a multidimensional human being can flower in him.
We should teach children meditation as we start educating their intellect. Just as the child comes to understand science, he should come to understand religion simultaneously. As his head grows brighter let his heart also grow full of light. "
Mystic Rose or Gibberish Meditation session were conducted to deal with the day-today problems children face e.g. anger thus stressing the art of let-go. Children were inspired to learn the art of expressing freedom and tuning in body, mind & heart through creativity sessions of painting, clay-modeling and acting.
Every Day non-competitive games were organized to paramount their feeling of togetherness & enhance group energy. For parents separate sessions were conducted & also a few combined sessions with children to enhance their feeling of oneness and opening to each-other.
Bringing out the essence of education, Osho says, "A real education will not teach you to compete; it will teach you to cooperate. It will not teach you to fight and come first. It will teach you to be creative, to be loving, to be blissful, without any comparison with the other.
The camp was an endeavor to bring the children closer to existence and to experience the sweetness of education through love, meditation, celebration and creativity.
"Education means drawing your inner being into expression in your living, your day-to-day life. Your honesty, your love, your compassion, should come from your inner being, not from teachings and scriptures..."
