Osho Heart of Relating
Feb 14 – 16, 2020 Hosted by Osho Nirvana Friends
During the Osho Heart of Relating Retreat, you will learn how to use Osho’s essential keys for inner transformation so that conscious relationships can evolve to support the celebration of life.
“The whole yoga, the whole tantra, the alchemy, the whole process of religion, is how to create an orgasm, a deep intercourse between the polarities within you. And when they meet within you a new type of being is born, a new life becomes alive. If you are a man, then your conscious is masculine and your unconscious is feminine. If you are a woman your conscious is feminine and your unconscious is masculine. Your conscious and unconscious must meet so that a new birth becomes possible. – Osho “The Supreme Doctrine”
“Seek ye first the end – end means the effect, the result – and the cause will follow. This is as it should be. It is not only that you place a seed in the soil and the tree follows; let there be a tree and there are millions of seeds. If cause is followed by effect, effect is again followed by cause. This is the chain! Then it becomes a circle – start from anywhere, create the cause or create the effect.
And I tell you it is easier to create the effect because the effect depends totally upon you; the cause may not be so dependent on you. If I say I can only be happy when a certain friend is there, then it depends on a certain friend, whether he is there or not. If I say I cannot be happy until I attain this much wealth, then it depends on the whole world and the economic situations and everything. It may not happen, and then I cannot be happy.
Cause is beyond me. Effect is within me. Cause is in the surroundings, in the situations – cause is without. EFFECT IS ME! If I can create the effect, the cause will follow. Choose happiness – that means you are choosing the effect – and then see what happens. Choose ecstasy and see what happens. Choose to be blissful and see what happens. Your whole life will change immediately and you will see miracles happening around you – because now you have created the effect and causes will have to follow.
This will look magical; you can even call it the law of magic. The first is the law of science and the second is the law of magic. Religion is magic, and you can be the magician. That’s what I teach you: to be the magician, to know the secret of magic. Create the effect and see what happens; causes immediately surround you, they follow. ”

We will celebrate Osho Enlightenment Day with Evening celebration, dancing and a selected Osho Video Discourse.
“Enlightenment simply means an experience of your consciousness unclouded by thoughts, emotions, sentiments. When the consciousness is totally empty, there is something like an explosion, an atomic explosion. Your whole insight becomes full of a light which has no source and no cause. And once it has happened, it remains. It never leaves you for a single moment; even when you are asleep, that light is inside. And after that moment you can see things in a totally different way. After that experience, there is no question in you.” – OSHO

“THE DANCE OF SILENCE” * A Sufi and Sufi-Zen Gathering*
Dates: July 22-26, 2020
“Just as the bird has two wings, let love and meditation be your two wings.”- Osho
Sufi is the expression of the ancient wisdom of the heart, and the path of love born from that wisdom. Zen is the silence, the sky, of that wisdom. This unique process is a journey to silence through love, and to love through silence.
Zikhr, breath, music, dance, poetry, the Sufi path and joy, will take us into the open space of the heart, the door, the bridge, to the silent lake of our being.
A structured process of Sufi whirling, Zen sitting, and Zen walking. Whirling take us into the many expression of ourselves and finally to the state of union; sitting in Zazen, listening to Sufi poetry and Zen haiku will help to remember the wisdom and the silence of our true nature.
Finding the silence, the stillness, in our whirling, and the song, the dance in our sitting. This camp is a powerful process of emptying ourselves, an atmosphere where love flowers into meditation.
A path to allow the empty space to be revealed.
The “Dance of Silence” is a deep Sufi and Sufi Zen meditation process of five days.
An immersion into the Remembrance of our True Nature.
“ Meditation and love together are supportive energies for each other. If you love, you will be able to meditate more deeply, if you meditate you will be able to love more totally. They go on helping each other. Slowly a pyramid is created in your consciousness. By the bricks of love and meditation, one can reach the highest peak of existence… …Meditation is the disciplined opening of the self to God. Because of fear we are closed, and only love can become a door. So love more, or rather be loving, then there is less fear and less tension, and you are more open. This help meditation as nothing else. Meditation plus love is the Path” Osho
“Love and meditation are the two sides of the same coin. Meditation and love are names of the same door seen from two different places. Seen from outside the door is called love. Seen from inside it’s called meditation. If you arrive at the door from outside, the label is love; if you arrive from inside, the label is meditation. Meditation is becoming filled with love in your alone, and love is the art of slipping into meditation with the other.” Osho
“My entire teaching consists of two words, meditation, and love. Meditate so that you can feel immense silence, and love so that your life can become a song, a dance, a celebration. You will have to move between the two, and if you can move easily if you can move without effort, you have learned the greatest thing in life.” Osho
“We have dropped all works and profession,
We have nothing but poetry and love songs now.
We sing of the heart, soul and beloved,
Only to burn all trace of heart, soul, and beloved.” – Rumi
Osho disciple since 1980. Initiated into the Mevlevi Sufi Order of Konya ( “The Whirling Dervishes” ), Videha integrates the Sufi Path into Osho’s vision and love. For years as a Zazen practitioner, he has traveled and trained in Mongolia, China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Central Asia, Tibet, where he received many initiations. He is leading groups, seminars, camps and meditation retreats all over the world since 30 years, uniting the path of love and the path of meditation.
“All the work is inspired by Osho’s teachings, my Master, an endless source of compassion and wisdom, an inexhaustible mine of countless Dharma teaching treasures”.
