OSHO Dynamic Meditation

This meditation is a fast, intense and thorough way to break old, ingrained patterns in the bodymind that keep one imprisoned in the past, and to experience the freedom, the witnessing, silence and peace that are hidden behind these prison walls.
 
The meditation is meant to be done in the early morning, when as Osho explains it, “the whole of nature becomes alive, the night has gone, the sun is coming up and everything becomes conscious and alert.”

Instructions

The meditation lasts one hour and has five stages. It can be done alone, and can be even more powerful if it is done with others. When doing this meditation in a group, the meditation remains an individual experience. Keeping the eyes closed, one remains oblivious of other participants around. Using a blindfold can be helpful to keep your attention focused inward. It is best to have an empty stomach and wear loose comfortable clothing. This meditation technique has been scientifically designed by Osho. It needs to be done in its complete form, with nothing shortened or omitted.



First stage: 10 minutes


BREATHING!
Rapidly in and out through the nose, let the breathing be intense and chaotic. The breath should move deeply into the lungs. Breathe vigorously and change the rhythm. Do this as totally as you possibly can, without tightening up your body.  Continue on, until you literally become the breathing, allowing breath to be chaotic. Avoid a repetitive or systematic breath pattern. Once your energy is building, it will begin to move your body. Allow these body movements to be there. Use them to raise even more energy. Moving your arms and body in a natural way will help your energy to rise. Feel your energy building up.
Be total, give everything and never slow down.

Second stage: 10 minutes


EXPLODE!
Let your body take over. Loose control. Give your body freedom to express, whatever is there. Let go of everything that needs to be thrown out. Go totally mad. …Sing, scream, laugh, shout, cry, jump, shake, dance, kick, and throw yourself round. Hold nothing back, keep your whole body moving. A little acting often helps to get you started. Never allow your mind to interfere with what is happening. Remember to be total with your body.

Third stage: 10 minutes


JUMP!
Shoulders and neck relaxed, raise both arms high above the head without locking the elbows. With raised arms, jump up and down shouting the mantra HOO…HOO…HOO HOO…HOO….from the bottom of your belly. Jump in such a way, hat you land on the flats of your feet, and the heels touch the ground. Each time you land on your feet, let the sound hammer deep into the sex center. Give all you have. Exhaust yourself completely.

Fourth stage: 15 minutes


STOP!! Wherever you are, in whatever position you find yourself. Remain silent just like a rock. In that moment of silence and stoppage, energy will be there. Don’t arrange the body in any form, a cough, a movement, anything will dissipate the energy flow and your effort will be lost. Be a witness to everything that is happening to you.

Fifth stage: 15 minutes


CELEBRATE!…
Express whatsoever is there, dance, move, enjoy!
Carry this aliveness with you throughout the day.

Osho about Dynamic Meditation

"This is a meditation in which you have to be continuously alert, conscious, aware, whatsoever you do. The first step, breathing; the second step, catharsis; the third step, the mantra, 'Hoo.' 
Remain a witness. Don’t get lost. It is easy to get lost. While you are breathing you can forget; you can become one with the breathing so much that you can forget the witness. But then you miss the point. Breathe as fast, as deep as possible, bring your total energy to it, but still remain a witness. Observe what is happening as if you are just a spectator, as if the whole thing is happening to somebody else, as if the whole thing is happening in the body and the consciousness is just centered and looking. This witnessing has to be carried in all the three steps. And when everything stops, and in the fourth step you have become completely inactive, frozen, then this alertness will come to its peak."
