Touching Meditation by Solar Spirit
Touching meditation is a way to heal our body and our soul. It is one of the most important things for the baby to grow healthy and to feel loving toward it self when it grows up.
Loving touch is a food for body and soul. It establishes your mind-body connection, decreases anxiety (it gives you a feeling of security and relaxation), increases the number of white blood cells (important for strong immune system), increases the level of endorphines (feel good hormones)… so it is a real natural medicine.
Welcome to this healing proces and feel the powers of a loving touch!

Bija mantras, inner child healing and compassionate guided meditations by Filip Afrika
A bija mantra, also known as a seed mantra, is a certain sound which cannot be translated into a literal meaning but has the power to create great transformative growth and expansion. The workshop revolves around actively setting the mind and body into a peaceful state with mantras followed by guided meditations on building compassion and inner child work, which can bring on wonderful transformations. The greatest gift we can give ourselves is to know thyself.
My name is Filip and I am a reiki master teacher. I come from Croatia and had lived in the dusty lands of Africa in Namibia for 14 years. After a difficult childhood I started to open up and experience transformations that led me to the world of spirituality. In the last decade I have had numerous teachings in Buddhism, meditation techniques and energy work from high status femtors and dear friends of mine.
Ecstatic Spirit Dance :: Workshop by Iva Solarević Jeličić
Ecstatic Spirit Dance is a free form dance. It’s a sort of moving meditation with different rhythms and intensity, along with different kinds of exercises designed to get you out of your comfort zone and set you free.
It is a practice through which we release blockages; suppressed emotions, physical tensions, traumas, stresses, fears, and allow ourselves to be free. We are coming back to our authenticity. Trough this practice we touch our truth and we express it trough movement. It is a sacred healing practice which connects us with our essence, freedom, love, inner power and with life itself.
The uniqueness of this workshop is that it forces you to get out of your comfort zone. You meet, face to face, your limitations, insecurities and fears regarding physical touch (there is a lot of physical touch :)), sexuality, approaching new people, connecting to strangers, expressing your truth, uncensored… A big and important life aspect which is pretty much blocked for most people.
No previous experience needed.
My life is focused on discovering humans as multi-dimensional beings with the goal to find the ways we can achieve health, joy and freedom. Research led me through the body, mind, emotions, energy, spirit, and consciousness. During college I studied the physiological processes, the locomotor system and ways our body functions. In 2001 I enrolled my postgraduate studies and began to study relations between psyche and body, the influence of meditation, yoga and energy work on the psychosomatic system. Finally I discovered what is the function of consciousness on our system, and how it works when we combine all that together.
I’d like to help you connect to your essence and discover the limitlessness of your own being!
Free Spirit, healthy body, happy heart!
Osho Active Meditations by Ma Chandra
Osho active meditations are designed to break your habitual thought patterns that imprison you and set you free from mind conditioning and programming.
By using breathing techniques, movement, catharsis, mumble, voice or shaking, you can: energize and relieve the body, open consciousness, kick out chronic and current stress, wake up life energy and harmonize potentials. Awaken more fully to who you really are.
“Meditation means just become empty of all content of the mind: of memory, imagination, thoughts, wishes and expectations, plans and mood. A man should empty himself of all these facilities. The biggest day in your life is when you can not find in yourself anything to discard. Everything has already been rejected, there is just pure emptiness. In this void, you will find yourself. In that emptiness you will find your pure consciousness.
This gap is empty in terms of the mind. Otherwise is full, full of existence – empty in terms of the mind, but it is full of awareness. Do not be afraid of the word: empty, it is not negative. It denies only unnecessary baggage you carry only because of the traditions, which can not help you but bother you, which is just heavy, heavy as a mountain. When you remove that weight, you are free from all restrictions, you become endless, like the sky.”
(OSHO, Everyday Osho: 365 Daily Meditations for the Here and Now)
“First society dethrones you, topples you from your center, and then keeps you suspended on the periphery so that you are neither here nor there. And finally, when your life-force is exhausted, you have no idea where you are, what you are or who you are. Then and then alone you can be made a slave. Then society can keep you busy with trivialities; then society can be your master.”
(OSHO, The Great Secret)
“So many laws and regulations are enforced that by the time something is allowed, it is almost insignificant – just a trickle; it is not gushing flood. And you can be happy only when energy gushes in a flood – when you are overwhelmed, when you are lost into it, when energy is so much that you don’t know any boundaries. William Blake has sad: Energy is delight. And energy has been repressed – society has created the kunda-buffer. The buffer has to be broken. That’s what I am doing here – trying to break the buffer.”
(OSHO, The Divine Melody)
Meditations will take place every other day for 2 hours.

I am hosting Osho active meditations for the last 11 years, I lived in Osho communes several times and have Osho sannyas.

Osho Active Meditations by Laura
“…In Patanjali’s [the most famous commentator on Yoga] days, the center of the human personality was not the brain; it was the heart. Before that, it was not even the heart. It was still lower, near the navel. The center has gone even further from the navel. Now, the center is the brain. That is why teachings like those of Krishnamurti have appeal. No method is needed, no technique is needed – only understanding. But if it is just a verbal understanding, just intellectual, nothing changes, nothing is transformed. It again becomes an accumulation of knowledge.
…Chaotic methods are needed to push the consciousness to its roots, because only from the roots is transformation possible. Otherwise you will go on verbalizing and there will be no transformation. It is not enough just to know what is right. You have to transform the roots; otherwise you will not change.
…The old methods may be meaningless now, but because Buddha achieved through them they have an appeal. The traditionalist feels: “If Buddha achieved through these methods, why can’t I?” But we are in an altogether different situation now. The whole atmosphere, the whole thought-sphere, has changed. Every method is organic to a particular situation, to a particular mind, to a particular man. The fact that the old methods don’t work doesn’t mean that no method is useful. It only means that the methods themselves must change. As I see the situation, modern man has changed so much that he needs new methods, new techniques.”

Three Principles :: Insightful Introductory Seminar by Darko Pribeg
This understanding is shared throughout the world for over 40 years as a powerful way to transform peoples lives. It’s used in all areas of life for any kind of a problem a person can have or to unleash a deeper potential within, from mental health issues (anxiety, depression, panic attacks…), health issues, family problems, issues with money and jobs… to simply an insight or a guide for people that are just seeking for a more fulfilled and harmonious life. It’s not a method or a technique to be used to change something, there is nothing to do, it’s a simple conversation that triggers insights into deeper truth, and the mere insight is what transforms people’s lives.
I’m personally doing the job of sharing this understanding for 5 years now. I held over a hundred seminars and countless hours of private sessions and I hear beautiful stories about transformations in people’s lives on a daily basis, just after a few simple, relaxed and friendly conversations.
