We had a beautiful evening hosting the book launch of "At Leve Og At Dø" (To Live and To Die) written by our resident therapist Anjee Carlsen. Anjee has been a member of the Buddhafield for many years and it was very touching to hear her read from her book. Here she says a little about it -
"The year that my former husband got his diagnosis and until he died was probably the most beautiful year of my life, even though it was also painful and challenging. I hope my book can be a support for others in a similar situation, as well as an inspiration for a more open dialogue on how death is part of life."
A big thank you to all the guests, group participants, workers and friends who made 2017 such a great year for Osho Risk. We loved having you visit us, meditate with us and share your hearts with us. Your support makes Osho Risk possible and for that we are immensely grateful.
We look forward to an fantastic 2018! We have lots of new things planned behind the scenes at Risk, as well as an exciting workshop schedule, three new Intensive Trainings and two Festivals. For now we would like to share a few images from our New Year Festival, such a wonderful way to start 2018.
"For me, the FC Training was a very rich experience, and is still unfolding within me. It gave me not only an intellectual understanding of the dynamics of family systems, but also countless deep embodied experiences of this. I found that learning took place in me at so many levels, when we were doing my own constellations and also while I was witnessing or participating in other constellations. I gained a a new perspective on myself and my family, seeing old family issues as less personal.
In my work life I feel supported by the training in the way that I sit in my own chair as a mindfulness coach and in the way that I interact with my clients. I see my task as to hold the space for my clients and to listen to them from the heart. The more spacious perspective of not taking things so personally is helpful for me in this, because it allows me to create a more open and neutral space for my clients. Of course, this is beautifully contagious, so that they, in turn, will begin to feel more compassionate and loving towards themselves and thus regain connection with themselves and find the clarity that they long for. I also learned about the importance of taking things slowly, letting them unfold and complete with the least possible interference on the part of the facilitator. This slowness and the trusting of the process are integral parts of how I hold the space for my clients to explore whatever come for."
We had a stunning demonstration of male power and grace when two beautiful men from the Osho Therapy Training took Sannyas last week with Nishant. Mitta did a Sufi Whirling meditation as part of the celebration and the silence afterwards was incredible. Thank you Osho!
