Breathe Your Body Alive: a 3-day Osho breath therapy-meditation workshop with Aneesha Dillon, April 2018

Let the body become more alive, and don’t be afraid. Those feelings are just the beginning of life and much more will happen, much higher than the body, but it will be rooted in the body. … start a love affair with your body. Osho

Who is the workshop for?

This is an Osho Pulsation emotional healing workshop. It is deep and intense, and at the same time gentle, loving and safely and strongly held. It’s for anyone:

  • who wants to feel more of their vital vivid aliveness
  • who wants liberation from repeating emotions or lack of emotions
  • who wants to explore the enlightened teacher Osho’s unique approach to meditation via therapy
  • who wants to get out of their head and into their body;
  • who feels stuck, and wants their life to move towards joy and freedom

This is a workshop for anyone who wants to go on the journey  towards your inner essence that the breath, with unique depth and honesty, takes us on.

Things that Osho Pulsation participants report include more pleasurable sexuality and sensuality; freedom from old emotional baggage; more love, joy, trust and laughter; an expanded capacity to feel and express emotions; a looser and more relaxed body; deeper meditation and more silence.

The workshop is self-contained, and there is no expectation that participants will have further interest in Osho or his work (though of course Osho’s active meditations are a brilliant way to support and deepen the discoveries you make.)

The body does not lie

Here’s Aneesha speaking about the mechanism of repression. (With handy Russian translation. Starts near the end, full video here.)

What is Osho Pulsation? What can I expect in these 3 days?

Aneesha developed Osho Pulsation by combining Osho’s depth meditation with the breathing therapy of Wilhelm Reich, as developed by Charles Kelley (Osho – Reich – Kelley).  Reich’s work has strong similarities to Osho’s Dynamic meditation (Reich – Dynamic).  The workshop will contain many varied and vivid breathing and bioenergetic exercises, dance, voice, contact and Osho meditations. But the archetypal neo-Reichian breathing consists of lying on a mattress with your knees up and your feet flat on the ground, and simply breathing deep in your belly and up into your chest, allowing the  body to fill with life and to move spontaneously.

Perhaps the breathing is easy and delightful, or maybe stuck and blocked; perhaps  there are simply joyful movements, or maybe emotions arise.   But it it your own true breath of life.  It comes from a profound place within you and can be  trusted to carry you through blocks and contractions towards openness, freedom and joy.

Typically, the majority of the exercises are done either in your own space, like Osho Dynamic, or with a partner as a friendly supporting presence, for example to stretch with. There’s no interpersonal confrontation or encounter. There’s some self-paced sharing and exercises such as bioenergetics with a partner,  but no  emphasis on self-revelation or interpersonal risk-taking.  The overall climate of the workshop is an active-meditation atmosphere, just more and more  making friends with your breath and being carried where it wants to take you to, in the company of supportive others.

Prerequisites and Disclaimer

There are no specific prerequisites. However, we anticipate that most participants will have either done Osho’s Dynamic meditation a few times, or  participated in for example a dance workshop or meditation retreat, or done some other  active meditation or some kind of therapy. If you’ve not done any of those things, or have any questions if this is right for you, please give me, Islam, a ring on the number above.

This workshop, like all Osho workshops, is intended as life education for self-responsible adults who can be responsible for their actions at all times and who wish to grow and develop emotionally and spiritually. While it utilises techniques drawn from therapy, it is not intended as psychotherapy for mental health issues or support for those in crisis.

In particular, if you have been treated for, or believe you may be suffering from a psychological disorder or mental health issue, you may want to consider if you are in a position to participate in our workshops, events and exercises. If in any doubt, please contact Islam, contact details at the top of the page.
