SUFI WAJAD MEDITATION CAMP
Conducted by Swami Anand Kul Bhushan & Swami Ravindra Bharti

August 1 - 5, 2012

“If you have tried Sufi whirling, you will discover that you are thrown to your centre. As you gather speed, you see fast moving colours that dissolve everything. With nothing to hold outside, you are pulled to your centre. In this stage you experience WAJAD - a trance-like state where you feel one with God, generally considered as the height of spiritual ecstasy in Sufism.”
- OSHO
Come, experience WAJAD

GURDJIEFF SACRED MOVEMENTS
Conducted by Ma Prem Amiyo & Swami Prem Chetan

August 31 - September 2, 2012

“Given very precisely by Gurdjieff as a powerful tool for growth, the practice of movements creates exceptional conditions for transforming the body –machine into a place where the forces of intelligence, heart, and action can freely expand, through the development of a certain quality of attention and relaxation. Sincere efforts are needed, but efforts in lightness…. Seriousness has been misunderstood as sincerity. Seriousness belongs to the ego and leads to self-importance. Sincerity is of the heart, it is totality, it is a love affair ….  Bringing a totality to our movements, our activities, we can suddenly realise that deep within, there is a still point, which does not know the world of efforts. It is the ground of our Being  Effort on the periphery. Non-effort in the center Such is the inner process, the inner dance of attention, from the inner to the outer, from the outer to the inner. Learning to sense our body from inside, first one fragment after the other successively, then combining them, suddenly this sensation radiates to the whole of ourselves, a vivid sensation of existing as One.
This experience can be called Presence.”  -
OSHO

MAHAPARINIRVANA DAY CELEBRATION
Conducted by Swami Ravindra Bharti & Swami Prem Vartan

September 7 - 9, 2012

“NIRVANA means a Buddha is in the body. He has attained to illumination, he has become a knower, but he is still in the body, the body of imperfection. He is still in the world of imperfect parts. This is NIRVANA, enlightenment. Then when he leaves the body, when he simply disappears into the ultimate emptiness, it is MAHAPARINIRVANA, it is the great enlightenment. Now imperfection disappears, now there is no individuality, now he is whole. Only the whole can be perfect. Now Buddha can be perfect, because now he has dissolved into the whole, he is oceanic.”  - OSHO

OSHO NEO SANNYAS CELEBRATION
Conducted by Swami Satya Vedant & Ma Bodhi Shashi

September 22 - 26, 2012

“My sannyas is nothing but entering into the world of celebration. It is not renunciation, it is rejoicing. Rejoice, rejoice that life is! Rejoice in the stars and the sun and the moon and the rains and the wind. Rejoice in trees and animals and birds and people. Rejoice in your own being. If rejoicing becomes your whole life I call it religious.”  - OSHO

NO MIND GROUP
Conducted by Swami Chaitanya Keerti

September 29 - October 5, 2012

“No-mind means intelligence; mind means gibberish, not intelligence. And when I am asking you for gibberish, I am simply asking you to throw out the mind and all its activity so you remain behind, pure, clean, transparent, perceptive.”
“It is suggested to participate in this process all the seven days fully--not partially.” -
OSHO
