Training for Transformation

A life-changing journey in 8 modules to create a totally new vision for yourself.
Osho Risk Training for Transformation

About the training

The retreat series that will change your life​ forever

Yahoo! It is happening: The famous Osho Risk Training is back in a renewed and refined version matching the present.

We have gathered a team of world class therapists, the absolute best in their respective fields, all deeply rooted in Osho’s teachings. The uniqueness of Osho Therapy is the way it integrates meditation and therapy. This supports us in moving consciously through the therapeutic process, deepening our presence and creating lasting changes in our lives.

The Osho Risk Training for Transformation is a deep healing journey, designed to take you through essential phases of your life. We all carry trauma in our system from early life experiences. By accessing our story in a safe space we are growing resources to step into a new way of living, with more depth, more authenticity, love and aliveness.

The training teaches about trauma and the unconscious strategies we chose as children to navigate in our surroundings. We learn how our stories are stored in the body and how to move the stuck energy and liberate ourselves, for example through movement and breath work. We will revisit our childhood and teenage years, getting intimate with parts of us that we might have hidden or forgotten.

During the training we learn to listen more to ourselves, follow our natural flow, and live our unique essential qualities. This will naturally be reflected in the way we relate with ourselves and others and expand our capacity for silence. The process will be supported by the three meditations happening daily at Osho Risk.

Training for Transformation 2

Dive deep into your unique body type, uncover its story, and learn the tools to heal, connect, and live your inner potential.

About this module

Our bodies reveal our lives. This is a rare opportunity to learn what yours says about you. Much of our suffering is created by unhealthy patterns of feeling and acting that helped us survive the traumas of childhood, but then got stuck in our bodies.These patterns are not our true self: They cover up our true self and prevent us from shining.

The understanding of how these survival patterns show in our bodies was originally developed from the pioneering work of Wilhelm Reich by Alexander Lowen. Lowen related character types to particular body shapes and structures. He created a map showing five main ‘Body Types’. This map both shows us where we got stuck and how we can eventually free ourselves and return to the present moment.

We will spend a whole day on each body type, learning experientially what each character type feels like from the inside.

This work is illuminated by the understanding of meditation: that there is a place of pure presence inside each one of us, beyond all protective adaptations and character types.

What you will learn

Training for Transformation 3

Dive deep into your past, uncover and heal the wounds of your childhood, and connect, once again, with your true nature.

About this module

Our behaviour and our fears and survival strategies are rooted in our childhood. In order to feel close to ourselves and trust the inner qualities with which we came into this world we need to know what hurt us when we were children. We need to understand how we felt at that time and how we compensated for missing safety, love and trust.

In our early years we were very intelligent in coping with our family situations and surroundings. We developed strategies and structures to make us feel safer. But in doing so we often needed to betray our true nature and on the way we lost trust in ourselves. As adults we carry on acting from these structures that are based in the fear of being abandoned and alone. It does not matter if it is at work, in our relationship, or in our free time: If we are not in connection with our true self, we tend to make choices that are not supportive to our identity. As time passes, this makes us feel weaker and more unsafe.

During this course we will use different techniques to revisit the time of childhood. In this way we can consciously and with the awareness of our adult self get in touch with the feelings and experiences of the child again. Once we recognize the strategies, patterns and behaviours of the past we can recognize when they are in action in our present day life. And only then can we decide to act differently: Now that we can be a parent to ourselves, these strategies are not needed anymore.

The inner child can regain trust and we can find the way back to our own identity, back to who we truly are. As a result we can heal our nervous system and be free to make different choices in our lives. Choices with which we are moving closer to ourselves and which make us feel whole and safe in our own being.

Training for Transformation 4

Discover the transformative power of embracing your inner teenager, bringing back a future of boundless possibilities.

About this module

This process guides you through your teenage years, healing the wounds of that time and retrieving the qualities that are the essence of a healthy teenager.

The awakening sexual energy of a teenager is a gift. It is not only a potential source of physical pleasure; it also makes life an adventure and eventually a search.

Healing and embracing your inner teenager now, as an adult, will bring back into your present life a sense of daring to go beyond what is familiar routine. It will create the space for something new in your life.

What you will learn

Training for Transformation 5

The power to change everything through dance, love and presence. Bringing meditation into daily life experiences

About this module

The transforming power in your own body, when understood and practiced, can change anything life brings from a suffering into a gift of grace. Emotions and body reactions are not your enemies, they are teachers. When you learn the wisdom of the body, the heart and the nervous system, you can grow and change with every situation that appears in life.

You will have a chance to understand the messages you received in childhood about your emotions: how they impacted you at the time and how they come up in your life now. You will learn how to continue healing them in your adult life through accepting and owning them rather than blaming others. This way you can receive the gift that each emotional experience brings.

The body remembers and the body knows. When you can listen, it becomes your healer. When you let the body express feelings through dance, you open to the depth and beauty of life as it is. Something new happens. Life becomes a mystery to be lived, rather than a problem to be solved.

Through this inquiry and the heart’s acceptance we learn to be truthful with ourselves, making space for our needs and for new, more nourishing ways of being with people in all kinds of relationships. We cannot “do” change. But we can create the space within for alchemy to happen.

Elements of this alchemy:

Acceptance: the heart center can embrace what is with compassion – even life’s opposites. The mind cannot do that.

Aliveness: the intensity and fire of being fully alive in everything such as sadness, anger, love, tenderness, relaxation….when expressed through dance it moves energy and brings joy.

Meditation: when we have lived something totally, it is easier to watch. When we can bring witnessing and silence to anything, integration happens.

The power of the heart’s acceptance and presence expands your capacity to receive life. It grows each time you welcome and feel rather than reject and fight with what is. This resilience helps you in today’s unpredictable world, and in your personal life.

We will also look at emotional intelligence and trauma from the perspective of Somatic Experiencing, one of today’s emerging body-based trauma therapies. You will learn some of its science and keys, and how these relate to inner alchemy. If you work with people, it increases your ability to hold someone as they are, with love. This is the backbone of being an effective therapist.

Live the totality of your emotions.

Training for Transformation 6

Take a look at what are the barriers that obstruct your ability to flow freely, and how your thoughts keep you in old patterns.

About this module

Life is a mysterious unfolding. With each turn we take there is new information for us to process and digest. Just when we think we have figured it out, life brings us new situations to test our inner connection. Awareness is not about having a fixed idea, but more about being able to love yourself and others no matter what is going on around you.

In this course we will take a look at what is in the way of keeping us flowing. We will experiment with moving the obstacles out of the way and support the understanding that we are connected to a loving existence.

It is important to remember that we can not always control our circumstances. However, we do have the power to decide how we take care of ourselves and make the most loving choices possible.

What you will learn

Training for Transformation 7

Gain a deeper understanding of love, meet Tantra’s wisdom, and cultivate a profound connection with yourself and others.

About this module

This section is about discovering that wholeness within which is already there. It is about getting more in contact with ones life energy, with the inner lover, bringing back projections. This is how we can start having more enriched and nourishing relationships on all levels: with ourselves, with partners, friends, people at work.

Polarity is always in play in all aspects of our lives. Osho reminds us that Tantra has known this for 5000 years. Polarity charges us. In the polarity we become alive. Polarity is juice. First we meet in the outer and later the outer meeting can become an inner meeting. This play is Tantra. 

We will dance through the currents in the outer and inner play of polarity: In Eros, in the pull of attraction, in the male and female qualities and whatever might surface during these six days. We will honour and value each other. Celebrate the same journey we all are on from meetings on the outside towards wholeness within.

The teachings are based on Osho’s vision and the Tibetan Buddhist Tantra taught to us by Neel Fasting at Vaekstcentret. It is an energetic and meditative approach (not problem oriented), that brings understanding, awareness, space, and deeper acceptance. From here, transformation and growth can happen.

The connection with the body is an immense resource. With meditation and movement we will be opening up to the sensitivity to the flow of life, to the life energy in the body. From here we will naturally connect with the resources within, with possibilities of becoming more authentic.

Meditation practise is a fundamental part of this group. We will be using Osho’s active meditations, heart meditations, guided meditations and meditations from Tantra to balance the inner flow, within ourselves and also how to use these in our intimate relationships.

Key areas of exploration in this part include:

Energy – becoming sensitive to the flow in our energy system

Emotions and their role in our relationships

Eros – Strengthening our connection with the inner source

Joy – Connecting with the source and becoming available to joy

Sexuality as an expression of our life energy

Male / female polarity – getting to know our inner opposite sex

Understanding the difference between rising and falling in love

Heart – deepening our connection with the heart

Meditation – understanding its importance on a deeper level

There is no nudity and no exercises are done in couples

Training for Transformation 8

Unless you are ready to die, to let go of the unimportant, you will not be able to live a life that is truly yours.

About this module

This course is the last part of the Osho Risk Training and it seems only natural to take a closer look at the issues that arise around the death and dying.

In our daily routine, death seems to be far away. Only when a person close to us dies or when we get confronted with an illness that could be life-threatening we suddenly become aware of the fact that we do not last forever.

There is a shock, fear and panic. It seems that everything we took for granted suddenly could disappear into thin air and all the security we relied on is gone:

‘What is it that really matters for me in this life?’. ‘Why am I here and what is it that I really want?’ The ego with its ambitions, expectations, worries and anxieties starts freaking out.

In this course we take a closer look: ‘Do I live authentically what is there in me that wants to be lived? What am I avoiding – what keeps me busy and distracts from my real longing?

Am I willing to let go – to let go of security and comfort? If this is the end now, what do I regret to have done or not done? Do I really trust the river of life so that it can take me to the ocean? With all these questions we will go through an intense process of meditation. It will create an opportunity to reconsider and listen to our deepest inner truths.

What you will learn

Training for Transformation 1

Experience the transformative power of conscious breathing: liberate yourself from trauma, and reconnect with pleasure.

About this module

Take a deep breath: Open your heart, your body, your being, let go of restricting fears and tensions. Allow yourself to explore the intensity and flow of life energy that makes being alive such a precious gift. In shock or trauma we hold our breathing. We stop the natural movement impulse of the body to fight or to escape. Instead, this vital movement energy is frozen into fear and helplessness or, in order to avoid the feeling of panic and pain, we may even disconnect from our body.

If we do not have support in our natural growing process as children it will affect our lives. Any kind of abuse in childhood or just the rejection of our basic need for love and emotional safety has traumatic effects. 

Breathing is a wonderful tool for moving through and beyond trauma. In this first part of the training we will use resourcing, moving with the felt sense as well as different ways of breathing, to enter the self-regulation healing system of the body.

This way we release old trauma and integrate the natural life force with all frozen emotions – back into pleasure.
