Doors to Osho Risk
A Commune, Meditation and Therapy Center.
There are many different ways to participate at Osho Risk, including Commune Living, Meditations, Therapy Workshops, Therapist Training and Essence Training.
The therapeutic level opens and exposes deep, underlying issues that are related to childhood, family, love, work and daily life. For many people this is one of their first experiences of Osho Risk. The therapeutic process is a necessary step in learning to get in touch with who you really are as a person, helping you to heal the wounds from the past and providing a chance to confront many of the wrongs done to you as an individual. The daily Osho meditation techniques, like Dynamic and Kundalini, are a great support for whatever processes are triggered during the workshops or trainings.
The Meditation aspect of Osho Risk is a central point around which the community revolves. There are daily meditations, happening all-year-round. These meditations are: Dynamic, an early morning, cathartic meditation, Kundalini, the afternoon meditation, and Evening Satsang, a celebrative, life-affirmative meditation in the evening. There are also silent sittings occurring on a regular basis in the meditation hut 'Shunya'. During mini-festival weekends other meditations are also offered, for example, Mandala, Sufi Breathing, No Dimensions, Chakra Breathing, Nadabrahma, Gourishankar… just to name a few. For many people Risk is an oasis for coming back to themselves and discovering their inner world through meditation.
The Commune Living aspect of Risk is for those who are interested in discovering themselves through participating in a residential work experience. Many people live at Risk, or nearby, participating and working in the Commune as part of the energy of the Buddhafield. This is a nourishing and fruitful way of exploring oneself, seeing other people as mirrors that reflect one’s own process, and providing an opportunity to enjoy working together in the atmosphere of the Commune.
Many people are attracted to the atmosphere of the Festivals which happen throughout the year, notably the Summer Festival, New Year Festival and the newly started Mini-Festivals. These are chances to meet new friends, connect with old friends and enjoy the welcoming atmosphere of celebration, music and meditation. For many people, this is their first experience of Risk and is often the easiest way to get started.
Looking at the bigger picture, all of these aspects of Osho Risk -- therapy, meditation and Commune Living -- are part of a fluid, organic process that helps us in a practical way to explore and discover who we are.
Osho Risk is a door to experience another way of life, an opportunity to dive into new dimensions of our being. There are many ways to take the plunge and get involved. The door is open.
