Sufi, the path of the heart: A three-day Osho meditation retreat


      DhyanYoga invite you to dive into the heart of Osho Sufi Meditation.

      This three-day Sufi meditation is a unique and beautiful journey of finding our inner lover and opening doors to an entirely new realm of our life. This Sufi group will be a deep immersion into our inner world, an exploration of the love and wisdom we all carry in our being. A Remembrance of the joyful song, and luminous silence, of existence.

      Sufi is a Mystic path, it is the ancient wisdom of the heart, and the path of love born from that wisdom. It’s finding the true nature and realization. This group in a meditative process using different methods, like rhythm, breath, music, dance, voice, sound, poetry, to enter a state of emptiness. “Zikhr” (Remembrance), an essential Sufi method, will bring us in touch with different layers of our being. Its waves will deepen and expand the different qualities of human consciousness and take us to the silent lake of our being.

       Osho Says: "When your energy, your life-energy, falls from the head towards the heart, you become a Sufi..."

      Whirling symbolizes and represents man’s unity with the cosmos; it is a movement where we dissolve ourselves with a world that cannot be understood with our mind, it has to be felt with the heart. This gathering is a process of emptying ourselves, a process, and an atmosphere where love and wildness flower into meditation.

      We will also explore the beauty of Sufi poetry and music. This Sufi group will be a deep immersion into our inner world, an exploration of the love and wisdom we all carry in our being. A Remembrance of the joyful song, and luminous silence, of existence.

       “Dervish’ is the Sufi word for sannyas. You cannot believe it unless you experience, that just by whirling you can know yourself. No austerity is needed, no self-torture is needed, but just an experience of your innermost being and you are transported into another plane of existence from the mortal to the immortal.

      The darkness disappears and there is just eternal light…. It is not that the Dervish dances, God keep dancing in him. Whenever a wave of such divine rapture strikes the heart of the Sufi, it creates a wave in the lake of his inner being….

      Something is pouring in him, and it is too much, it starts overflowing in his dancing and singing. ….In reality, it is the wave of the ocean of God that are tossing and turning the anchor-less vessel that is the heart of the Sufi. His state is that of non-being….” Osho
