Osho Risk is a heart-centered Community for Meditation and Growth. For more than 30 years we have been holding meditation retreats, personal growth workshops and trainings inspired by the Indian Mystic Osho, whose vision is to make meditation accessible to everyone
Osho Risk is a not for profit retreat center, maintained by a community of people living onsite and nearby. We offer a safe and nourishing environment where you can simply take space for yourself or dive deeper with one of our courses, and explore your life on many levels. We value our own growth and inner maturity and enjoy sharing this with our guests. Our focus is on awareness, inner silence and joy.
One of the unique aspects at Osho Risk is the daily active meditations. We offer three meditations every day – Dynamic Meditation, Kundalini Meditation and Evening Satsang, which includes a discourse from Osho.
We also have a Living In Program, for those wanting to spend a longer time at Osho Risk and experience living in a meditation community.
We support a healthy way of living by serving ecological, organic vegetarian food and revitalized, clean water. Our peaceful surroundings in the countryside have nature walks and gardens for you to enjoy.
Osho Risk is a place for love and humour. Meditation and growth are as playful as life itself.
“Meditation helps you to grow your own intuitive faculty.
It becomes very clear what is going to fulfill you, what is going to help you flower.
And whatsoever it is – and it is going to be different for each individual…
That is the meaning of the word “individual”: everybody is unique.
And to seek and search your uniqueness is a great thrill, a great adventure.”
(Osho, Guida Spirituale Chapter 2)
The Mystic Osho has had a huge influence on the world of meditation, therapy and personal growth. Born in 1931 in Central India, he became enlightened at the age of 21, while at university. He remained in the academic world for several more years, becoming Professor of Philosophy at the University of Jabalpur, before leaving to become a spiritual teacher.
In the 1970s, at his ashram in India, Osho became the first spiritual teacher to combine Western therapy with Eastern meditation, creating new methods to assist seekers in their quest for self-knowledge. His active meditation techniques, designed especially to help contemporary men and women, have helped thousands of people to unburden feelings of mental stress and physical tension, in order to experience a relaxed state of meditation and inner harmony.
In his discourses, Osho has spoken about psychology, philosophy and shed new light on many religious paths, including Yoga, Sufism, Tao, Zen, Tantra and Hasidism. He has also commented on the sayings of great masters like Gautam Buddha, Lao Tzu, Bodhidharma, Jesus and Krishna. The essential core of Osho’s teaching is awareness or consciousness. This foundation can be applied to any form of self-help method or therapy, which is why so many therapists – offering a wide range of skills and insights – have embraced Osho’s vision of how personal transformation works.
Osho died in 1990, but his teachings continue to be a living force for self-inquiry and individual transformation. Many ashrams, institutes and meditation centers offer the opportunity for people to explore Osho’s meditation methods and other growth techniques. This includes the Osho Risk Institute, which was founded in 1986.
“Love is a natural kind of meditation.
And meditation is a supernatural kind of love.”
Osho Active Meditations
A Revolutionary Approach to Meditation
Meditation is the art of making your own personal inner journey and finding the silence, peace and fulfilment that comes with relaxing and resting in your true nature. This has always been true. But modern life is now so complex, so fast-paced and so mentally stressed, that traditional methods of meditation have become less effective. In response to this, Osho created Active Meditations, a revolutionary way of meditating that brings movement to meditation. Active Meditations are designed to release stress, empty the mind and relax the body. This allows a deeper experience of meditation to happen.
At Osho Risk we hold three daily Active Meditations – Dynamic Meditation, Kundalini Meditation and Evening Satsang. In addition to daily meditation practice, we also offer meditation workshops every year, including Vipassana, the classic Buddhist meditation and the Satori process. On site we have three beautiful spaces which will support your meditation experience, including two large meditation halls and a small, cosy hut.
“So first chaotic methods are used to push the center – the center of consciousness – from the brain toward the heart. Then catharsis is needed to unburden the heart, to throw off the suppressions, to make it light. If the heart becomes light and unburdened, then the center of consciousness is pushed still lower. It comes to the navel, and the navel is the source of vitality. It is the source, it is the seed source from which everything comes: the body, the mind, all else.”
