For Happiness & Peace of Mind- Osho Devavani Meditation
February 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$30
Osho Active Meditations have been devised by the modern mystic Osho especially for the modern man, introduces us to the most fundamental steps of meditating. He begins with guidance related to diet, exercise and sleep and then helps us understand how the body, thoughts and emotions can be purified to help us move into meditation. Osho Meditations are especially designed for people who want to bring a new quality of ease to their busy, pressured lives.
For men and women who not only care about their bodies and their health, but who also like to feel at ease inside. For people
who want to become more calm and flexible.
Meditation is one of the many “active” meditations developed by the spiritual master Osho. It was designed specifically for the modern man. You can go into the meditative state much quicker and much deeper.
An ancient meditation from the tantric tradition; a very gentle yet powerful technique which will connect us to higher vibrations allowing the heart center to open up and receive the flow of cosmic energy.
Devavani is the Divine Voice which moves and speaks through the meditator, who becomes an empty vessel – a channel. This meditation relaxes the conscious mind so deeply that, when done last thing at night, it is sure to be followed by a profound sleep. There is music especially made for this meditation Osho : You can go into meditation just by sitting, but then be just sitting; do not do anything else. If you can be just sitting, it becomes meditation. Be completely in the sitting; non-movement should be your only movement. In fact, the word zen comes from the word zazen, which means, just sitting, doing nothing. If you can just sit, doing nothing with your body and nothing with your mind, it becomes meditation; but it is difficult.
You can sit very easily when you are doing something else but the moment you are just sitting and doing nothing, it becomes a problem. Every fiber of the body begins to move inside; every vein, every muscle, begins to move. You will begin to feel a subtle trembling; you will be aware of many points in the body of which you have never been aware before. And the more you try to just sit, the more movement you will feel inside you.
Devavani meditation lasts for one hour. There are four stages of 15 minutes each. Keep your eyes closed throughout. Devavani is the “divine voice” which moves and speaks through the meditator, who becomes an empty vessel, a channel. This meditation is a Latihan of the tongue. It relaxes the conscious mind so deeply that, when done last thing at night, it is sure to be followed by a profound sleep.
First Stage: 15 minutes
Sit quietly, while the music is playing.
Second Stage: 15 minutes
Start making nonsense sounds, for example “la la la” and continue until unfamiliar word-like sounds arise. These sounds need to come from the unfamiliar part of the brain used as a child, before words were learned. Allow a gentle conversational intonation; do not cry or shout, laugh or scream.
Third Stage: 15 minutes
Stand up and continue to speak, allowing your body to move softly in harmony with the sounds. If your body is relaxed the subtle energies will create a Latihan outside your control.
Fourth Stage: 15 minutes Lie down, be silent and still.The only thing to be remembered is that those sounds or words should not be of any language that you know. If you know English,German, and Italian, then they should not be Italian, German, or English. Any other language that you don’t know is allowed –Tibetan, Chinese, Japanese! But if you know Japanese then it is not allowed – then Italian is wonderful!
Speak any language that you don’t know. You will be in a difficulty for a few seconds only for the first day, because how do you speak a language you don’t know? It can be spoken, and once it starts, any sounds, nonsense words just to put the conscious off and allow the unconscious to speak, will happen.
When the unconscious speaks, the unconscious knows no language. It is a very, very old method. It comes from the old testament. In those days it was called glossolalia. A few churches in America still use it. They call it ‘talking in tongues’. And it is wonderful method, one of the most deep and penetrating into the unconscious.Don’t make it feverish, let it be a deep deep comforting energy,nourishing, sing-song. Enjoy, sway, if you feel like dancing, dance.But everything has to be very graceful, that you have to remember. It has not to become cathartic.
There are so many advantages to meditation. When I first originally thought of this post, I indeed wanted to make it 100 benefits long (think big right!), however, I wasn’t sure I could find more than perhaps 20-25 benefits. Well, I made it happen! Meditation is as powerful as I thought it would be. Here is the definitive list of benefits that meditation can provide you with:
The object of Osho Meditations is to take away thoughts from your brain and redistribute them all over your body. This gives your brain a chance to rest. If you have problems with anxiety, passive meditations, that take place only while sitting or lying down, may not be enough for you to let go of your anxious thoughts. Osho Meditations are considered active meditations because you are up and moving around. These meditations are meant to clear the mind before passive meditation takes place. It is truly amazing how well these techniques work.
Benefits Of Meditation
The benefits of meditation are endless and certainly deserve your contemplation and consideration. Many successful business people, celebrities and sports professionals practice and enjoy the benefits of meditation. Numerous businesses promote and provide help and assistance to their staff with the benefits of meditation courses and because of this they gain an advantage over their competitors and create more profit.
Research has scientifically proven that meditation is a safe and simple way to balance your physical, emotional, and mental state and its countless values have been known and practiced for thousands of years. More and more doctors promote the benefits of meditation to cure many stress related illnesses. Everyday most of us experience stress in many different ways and I believe many people are simply not aware of the benefits of meditation or of how much stress we actually hold on to. Normally life threatening situations trigger off the stress response which enables us to act without contemplation and deliberation and survive intense situations using fast reflexes. When our bodies are exposed to a sudden threat we respond with the characteristic fight or flight reaction which is known as an adrenaline rush. When adrenaline and other hormones are released from the adrenal glands the pulse races, blood pressure increases, our breathing becomes faster and the blood flow to the muscles increases. If we are in extreme danger these reactions are of great assistance and gain to us. We have inherited this survival response from our ancestors who faced many life threatening situations every day. The same response is now triggered in our daily lives when we are in a traffic hold up or someone irritates us at work or we simply break a cup. If we do not confront the situation (and many are beyond our control) we end up being in a permanent state of stress.
One of the most important benefits of meditation is how it releases stress from our bodies. Meditation practiced regularly will lead you to a deeper level of relaxation and contemplation. If you want to be free of constant worry, pressure and stress the benefits of meditation can give you a life that is calm, peaceful, happy and relaxed.
Even ten minutes of meditation a day will help alleviate stress.

Waiting is meditation — waiting with full awareness. And then it comes, it descends on you, it surrounds you, it plays around you, it dances around you, it cleanses you, it purifies you, it transforms you. Osho
