Join us for a powerful 7-day process designed to assist you enter a deeper state of meditation and self-awareness. One of the most beautiful ways to develop self-awareness is via the practice of just observing one’s breathing as it occurs naturally. By focusing on one’s breathing, one may develop the mental and physical fortitude to observe all other aspects of one’s being. Watching the breathing allows the watcher to become strong enough to watch everything: the body, thoughts and feelings.
“Vipassana simply means witnessing. And that has been my whole life’s effort: to teach you awareness, witnessing, alertness, consciousness.”
This meditation is based on a method of Gautama the Buddha. It is for practicing awareness, watchfulness, mindfulness, witnessing. The OSHO form of Vipassana enables this to be a comfortable, “juicy” experience, it is not dry.
“Buddha used to say: Start with breathing because that is the most simple thing in the world, so simple that you dont do it at all. It happens on its own. You dont breathe, you are never aware of breathing unless something goes wrong, it goes on its own. You can go on sleeping and the breathing continues. And it is good: otherwise, if you had to take care about it life would be impossible. Breathing is spontaneous, it is a very simple process: the breath just goes in, goes out nothing much in it. Buddha says: Watch it, become aware of it. Sitting silently, simply see the breath going in, the breath going out. You will feel very bored because it is very monotonous: the same breath coming in, the same breath going out. The first problem has to be very simple, like breathing. And the second problem will be that you will have to face boredom. And if you can face boredom, boredom disappears and you will find a tremendous calm behind it. Start awareness with the breathing process. OSHO
