Tears take out all the agony that is hidden inside you and the laughter takes away all that is preventing your ecstasy. Osho
This innovative meditative therapy takes place three hours a day for three weeks: the first week is laughter, the second crying, and the third silent witnessing.
Osho created this powerful meditative therapy saying, “I have invented many meditations, but perhaps this will be the most essential and fundamental one … it is the first major breakthrough since Vipassana 25 centuries ago.”
It is a 3-week process:
Laughing for 3 hours for seven days. This removes all the inhibitions and repression that hinder our spontaneous laughter and natural joy.
Crying for 3 hours for seven days. This uncovers the next layer of repression, all the agonies and tears, and provides for a great unburdening of pain and suffering.
The “watcher on the hill.” With a thoroughly cleansed heart, just sitting silently in meditation.
