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

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.

Who is the workshop for?

It’s for anyone who want to feel more alive; anyone who feels stuck; anyone who wants their meditation to go deeper; anyone who wants to get out of their head and into their body; anyone who wants to leave old emotions behind; anyone who wants a workshop that is deep and intense, yet  healing and safely and strongly held; anyone who wants to be free of chronic blocks and tensions; anyone who wants to explore in depth Osho’s approach to meditation via therapy.

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

The workshop is self-contained, and there is no expectation that participants will have further interest in Osho or his work.

Prerequisites

There are no 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.
