Osho Born Again Meditative Therapy
April 11 - April 17
This group is facilitated by Swami Antar Khirad.
Born Again is a Meditative Therapy which will take you deep into freeing up conditioned and repressed energies that are locked in many negative beliefs and patterns of behavior from our childhood which inhibit, freeze and block our life force. This is a pure energy process to reconnect to your own childlike vitality and joy. This therapy is in two stages:
• First Stage: For the first hour you behave like a child, just enter into your childhood. Whatever you wanted to do, do it -dancing, singing, jumping, crying, weeping – anything at all, in any posture. Nothing is prohibited except touching other people. Don’t touch or harm anyone else in the group.
• Second Stage: For the second hour just sit silently. You will be more fresh, more innocent, and meditation will become easier.
“Man has much to learn from children, but who cares about children? Everybody is trying to teach them without ever thinking about a simple thing: they are coming out of life’s source, fresh. They must be carrying something which we have forgotten. If you go backward and remember, you cannot go further back than your fourth year, or most your third year. Suddenly there comes a wall; your memory cannot penetrate further back. What happened? You lived those four years and in fact, those four years were the happiest that you had known.”
“But your experience somehow has been blocked by the society. It is dangerous for the society that people should be so innocent, like children. Your parents, your teachers, your leaders with all the good intentions in their hearts are doing immense harm. They repress the child in you, and the child in you is closer to God than anything else. This is why so many mystics have insisted, “Unless you are born again, unless you become childlike again, you will not know the truth and you will not know the beauty and you will not know the mystery of existence.”
“Everybody forgets, but somewhere deep down in the unconscious, the experience of those days goes on echoing. It is this echoing of those experiences that sends you in search, because you cannot accept your miserable life full of anxiety and tension and psychological sickness as the meaning of your being here. Vaguely, somewhere, you know that there have been golden moments also.”
“You cannot exactly remember, but an undercurrent in your unconscious goes on creating a longing in you to find those lost moments again. Religion is basically the search for childhood: the same innocence, the same joy in things, the same fearlessness those magical eyes, that heart which was able to dance with the trees, the heart that was enchanted with the moon and the stars. That space in which existence is nothing but sheer glory, pure splendor.”
