“Don’t be afraid. Come out of your ignorance, come out of your protective shell, come out of the ego. Ego is just like the egg: a shell which protects. Come out of your character, come out of your conscience. Take the challenge! Adventure into the unknown.”
Osho

OSHO Afroz Meditation Center

OSHO Afroz Meditation Center is located on the South West Coast of the beautiful Greek island of Lesvos. Varidhi founded the center in 1989 with a vision to create an ideal space to combine a vacation with meditation. It is nestled into the natural valley of Psinia, close to the village of Eressos. Embedded in olive groves and surrounded by majestic volcanic mountains, OSHO Aroz is located just 2km away from the most tranquil and pristine beach in Skala Eressos. 

Meditation, inner harmony, dance, celebration and creativity are abundant in OSHO Afroz. The highlight of the day, the Evening Meeting, takes place in the Buddha Grove; a beautiful open space shaded by an ancient oak tree.

    Gurdjieff sacred dances can help us to connect with the self, the real one in the moment, its a meditation in movement. Taking us deep inside, helping us to connect with our different centers - intellectual, physical and emotional - and with that awareness we can have experience of the self, the watcher, the witness and the no mind. In that state of no mind there is a space for the higher force to enter in. These movements help us be in the present moment which can be supportive to create a balance in our daily life living.

    Laughter is one of the greatest gifts we human beings have!

  • 17:30 - 18:30
    This “sister meditation” to the OSHO Dynamic is best done at sunset or in the late afternoon. Being fully immersed in the shaking and dancing of the first two stages helps to “melt” the rock-like being, wherever the energy flow has been repressed and blocked. Then that energy can flow, dance and be transformed into bliss and joy. The last two stages enable all this energy to flow vertically, to move upwards into silence. It is a highly effective way of unwinding and letting go at the end of the day.
    Where
    Buddha Grove

  • 19:00 - 20:15
    The evening meeting is the time when everyone comes together to dance and celebrate and then to sit silently. "That which cannot be said has to be experienced.

This is the highest peak of the whole day's working, meditating or doing groups." Osho

    Give yourself the space to explore for 1 day the qualities of your inner child through different methods and fill your adult life again with color, laughter, dance, meditation and silence.
As adults we tend to become serious, we create dramas and try to solve our never ending problems. When we connect with our inner child, life becomes much simpler, we connect with the innocence of our being and our eyes can see the wonder and mystery of life.

    This active centering meditation is based on Sufi techniques, further developed and expanded by Osho. Using the breath and a series of coordinated body movements followed by whirling, your energy becomes centered in the hara, the “life energy” center below the navel. From there you can watch the mind and experience awareness and wholeness – the body moving in all directions, the center unmoving.

    This event will open up for you the space of childlike wonder. As we grew up, we lost touch with it, taking more and more refuge into knowledge and predictability..When you let go of what you already know and expect, life is no longer a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be lived. Life becomes a miracle and a surprise, and you can respond to the moment with a new creativity. ‘Remain innocent, childlike, if you ever want a communion with existence and reality. Remain in wonder if you want the mysteries to open up for you’ OSHO
