Day of Awareness - Full Moon Meditation

Living in this fast-paced city of New York, there are rare moments in a day where one is actually fully present, aware, and relaxed. When such moments occur, they seem almost to happen in spite of us.

Meditation creates the right inner climate, making us more open, sensitive, and available, so such experiences are not just something happening once in a while to us, but more our constant state, a continuum.

A Day Of Awareness is a day of nourishment,  a time-out, an opportunity to come off the grid for a few hours, relax deeply, go inside ourselves and be acquainted with the space from where such spontaneous moments arise. 
 
“When you are flowing with joy, blissfulness, that is the moment to be aware, but people do exactly the opposite. When they are happy who cares about awareness? And when they are in anguish, then certainly they start thinking it is time to be aware and get out of anguish. But nobody has ever been able to get out from anguish directly. First, one has to get out from ecstasy. If you can be aware of your joyful moments in the first place, the depression, the downs will not come. The door to get out is from ecstasy."  Osho

Cost: $45 (including lunch)

LOVE, INTIMACY AND MEDITATION with VASUMATI
Nov
17
to Nov 18

LOVE, INTIMACY AND MEDITATION with VASUMATI

In these two days, we will open our hearts to a deep space of love, intimacy, and connection with ourselves and others.

The key to this opening lies not only in reaching out to others but also in reaching inward to our essence, our being, and letting that become the foundation for intimacy.

Osho has spoken about love and meditation, how love arises from the source of meditation and how meditation in turn nourishes love.

To love often meant to abandon ourselves and let go of our boundaries, whereas to meditate meant to renounce intimacy and partnering this vision allows for both.

It is a meeting of the masculine and the feminine which is a door to the Tantric way of life.

Vasumati has had the opportunity to work closely with Osho, being one of the first therapists in the Commune. She brings her vast experience and love to the work, that she shares around the world. Having her here with us in New York City is truly a wonderful gift.

Location: Padma NYC 6 West 14th Street #2B NY, NY 10011
Time: Saturday 11/17 8:30am - 5pm    Sunday 11/18 10am - 3pm
Cost: $200 (including Saturday lunch & Sunday snack)
Resister: oshopadmanyc@gmail.comor 917-684-8255 (Arpana)

Being that our meditation space can only fit so many people, we have decided to keep participation to a set number. So if you are wanting to join this event it is advisable to book soon. We will be asking for a $50 deposit to hold your place.

SATORI with GANGA

to Jun 9

SATORI with GANGA

  • Dhyan Yoga Meditation Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Satori is a powerful and intense method of inquiry into oneself. This process aims at establishing a solid connection with the source of life in us – our being. We all have glimpses of it, but they mostly happen accidentally. To come out of this accidentalness we need to discover how we can arrive at the same place consciously. For this we use a set of questions as a device to move through the layers of our thoughts and feelings into a state of no-mind and Being. 

Ganga began her Satori journey under Osho’s guidance back in the early 70s. She has been leading groups all over the world for over 40 years. Ganga’s wisdom, compassion, and mastery of this process are a rare gift.

AUM

AUM

The AUM is a two hour active meditation which guides us step by step in a safe supportive environment. It gives us the opportunity to actively explore all that we keep repressed such as hate, love, sensuality, tears, laughter and joy. Through this self guided and group-supported inquiry into ourselves, we begin to experience a new sense of aliveness, which also brings about a spontaneous feeling of playfulness and relaxation.
