What is the workshop about?

MER is deep tissue massage and bodywork, working with the myo- (muscles) and fascia (connective tissue). A session can also include breath-work, joint-release, assisted stretches and emotional work. Fascia is present throughout your whole body. Muscles, bones and organs are all surrounded by connective tissue. It gives your body shape, structure, strength and flexibility. If the tissue gets sticky, stiffens, shortens or thickens it limits range of movement, reduces metabolism and changes the posture and functions in the body. The result is chronic pain, fatigue, lethargy and lack of life energy (depression).

Through working with deep sensitive touch, breath and movement we release cramped muscles and connective tissue. We help the client make the connection between physical and emotional holding patterns and get awareness on the negative beliefs, habits and behaviour causing the spasms.

The effects are diverse. Body pain decreases, posture improves and you become less tense in body and mind. This allows you to better manage your own energy and your emotions, making you less vulnerable to stress, anxiety and depression.

With a MER session the metabolism picks up again and oxygen, nutrients and energy can circulate freely through the tissues. Your immune system gets a boost, you will feel that you are more flexible and you can enjoy more freedom of movement. Deep tissue massage also stimulates the release of endorphins, the natural painkiller of the body.

Join a heart-centered community with 35 years of retreat experience

Since 1986, we have been devoted to personal transformation by creating a nourishing space where you feel safe and loved for who you are.

Osho Risk is a not for profit retreat centre, maintained by a community of people living onsite and nearby. We value our own growth and inner maturity and enjoy sharing this with our guests. Our focus is on awareness, inner silence and joy.

Single rooms

We have single rooms available in the newest building at Risk called Rumi House. You will have your own private space and share bathroom with others.

Shared rooms

We also have shared rooms for 2 up to 10 people. Each shared room have personal spaces for each guest. We always try to take care of the quality of your sleep, accommodating guests with similar needs in the same room.

Organic cuisine with gluten and dairy free options

Attuned with the cycles of nature, our meals are prepared with ingredients of each season. We aim to use mainly organic food grown by local farmers. All the eggs we use are provided by the neighbour’s free range chickens.

Our cooks care and understand the dietary needs of our guests and it is important that you communicate if you have any requirement, such as allergies or restrictions. Please let us know in advance so that the kitchen can be prepared.
