DYNAMIC MEDITATION

"This is a meditation in which you have to be continuously alert,
conscious, aware, whatsoever you do. Remain a witness."

Osho


Dynamic meditation lasts for one hour and is in five stages. Osho's meditations are an individual experience, so you should remain oblivious of others around you and keep your eyes closed throughout, preferably using a blindfold. Even if you are doing the meditation alone, a blindfold will be helpful to keep your attention focused inward. It is best to have an empty stomach and wear loose, comfortable clothing. As with all meditations, make sure you are in a situation where you will not be disturbed or interrupted.

First stage: 10 minutes

Breathing rapidly in and out through the nose, let breathing be intense and chaotic. The breath should move deeply into the lungs, and whenever you notice that you are getting into a set pattern or rhythm, change it. Do this as totally as you possibly can. Allow any body movements to happen. Use these natural body movements to help you build up your energy. Feel it building up, but don't let go during the first stage.

Second stage: 10 minutes

Explode! Let go of everything that needs to be thrown out. Go totally mad, scream, shout, cry, jump, shake, dance, sing, laugh, throw yourself around. Hold nothing back, keep your whole body moving. A little acting often helps to get you started. Don't allow your mind to interfere with what is happening. Be total.

Third stage: 10 minutes

With raised arms, jump up and down shouting the mantra HOO! HOO! HOO! as deeply as possible. Each time you land, on the flats of your feet, let the sound hammer deep into the sex center. Give all you have, exhaust yourself totally.

Fourth stage: 15 minutes

STOP! Freeze where you are in whatever position you find yourself. Don't arrange the body in any way. A cough, a movement, anything will dissipate the energy flow and the effort will be lost. Be a witness to everything that is happening to you.

Fifth stage: 15 minutes

Celebrate! . . . with music and dance express whatsoever is there. Carry your aliveness with you throughout the day.
