Osho Vipassana Retreat

The Bush Sanctuary

"I'm simply saying that there is a way to be sane.
I'm saying that you can get rid of all this insanity created by the past in you.
Just by being a simple witness of your thought processes" ~ Osho ~

Osho Vipassana Weekend Retreat
Fri. 14 - Sun. 16 October 2016
Fri. 25 - Sun. 27 November 2016

The retreat including accommodation & meals:
by donation.

You are invited to participate in our next
Vipassana Retreat at the Bush Sanctuary, Rosebank
(in the hinterland of Byron Bay, Mullumbimby and Lismore).

Our retreat, located in a stunning, tranquil bush setting
is a safe and silent place to relax, meditate and enjoy being in nature.
Away from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day lives
you can experience a few days in silence;
without eye contact, talking, mobile phones or internet.

The retreat commences at 4pm on Friday afternoon
and finishes at 3.30pm on Sunday, with a friendly sharing,
a cup of tea and cake before you continue on your journey.

Osho brings a new approach to vipassana meditation to assist the needs of modern man who is constantly in turmoil and extremely busy coping with the faster rhythms of life.

Osho makes meditation a simple, enjoyable experience without involving any austerity or outdated traditions. In this retreat, men and women eat together, meditate together and share together in awareness and silent communion.

Vipassana is just the simple process of watching the breath moving in and moving out - watching the actions of the body, thoughts, feelings, emotions and moods. Not identifying, judging, evaluating or discriminating.

As well as silent sitting, the retreat includes:

* Osho discourses on the Vipassana technique and meditation
* Vipassana Walk (a slow, centering awareness walk)
* Osho Kundalini  (an active meditation technique to release
   repressed emotions) making it easier to relax and sit silently.
* A silent bush walk in nature to connect with the senses and
   move stagnant energies which are getting in the way of us
   opening up to a greater cosmic awareness.
* Delicious vegetarian meals

Bring your own bedding, towel, torch, shawls, blanket, umbrella, walking shoes, cushion and an alarm clock. Accommodation is in simple, clean, bush style cabins located in natural setting or bring your own tent or van. The Bush Sanctuary is alcohol, cigarette and drug free.

Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation. It was rediscovered by Gautama Buddha more than 2500 years ago and was taught by him as a universal Art of Meditation. Vipassana is a way of self-transformation through self-observation. It focuses on the deep interconnection between mind, emotions, memories, breathing and body. Through the direct experience of natural flow, life becomes characterised by increased awareness and peace.
