Meditation

"Meditation has only one meaning, and that is going beyond the mind and becoming a witness. In your witnessing is the miracle -- the whole mystery of life.

Meditation is nothing but putting the mind aside, putting the mind out of the way, and bringing a witnessing which is always there but hidden underneath the mind. This witnessing will reach to your centre, and then there is no problem.

Slowly slowly as witnessing grows, the distance grows between you and the mind. Soon the mind is a faraway echo, and finally you cannot even hear the echo; then you are left utterly free in tune with you." - Osho


The mind is hectic, confused and creates disharmony within our life. As part of the Ashram, we offer a program of Osho and other meditation techniques that help you drop into silence and connect with your heart energy. This enables you to gently blend into the calm spirit and lifestyle we have here. These meditations also enrich your experience and assist in personal transformation.

Meditation is not just sitting silently, it is also a way to carry this meditative state throughout the day, so in every activity we are watchful of our moods, emotions, resistances, energy levels and how much passion we put into everything we do.

 

Metanoia Gardens

The meditation program includes Creative Meditation in Action in the morning and Sunset Sangha in the evening, along with additional daily scheduled meditations..

 



Creative Meditation in Action

Everything we do with presence and awareness becomes a Creative Meditation in Action. This is a time spent each day, usually in the morning (minimum 4 hours per day) in devotion to the Ashram and our inner transformation. This meditation could involve gardening, landscaping, cooking, and cleaning or whatever else is required each day by the needs of the ashram. These meditations challenge us to watch the body and the mind, our patterns of thinking and feeling, and our habits of reacting rather than responding to people and situations. 

It is important that you are physically fit and healthy in order to participate fully in Creative meditation in action.


Sunset Sangha

At the end of each day we gather to watch sunset. All the doing stops, and this beautiful meditation prepares us and our hearts to enter Sangha, our evening meditation where we join as a family connecting with each other in love and friendship. During Sangha we dance, we sit in silence, and share from the heart, sometimes in the presence of Swami Anamo.
