About the event
Zorba the Buddha Meditation & Music Camp is the first such event in Poland of an international reach, addressing people to whom Osho meditations are an essential part of their life or who feel they could become such part. During the five days, our teachers and friends who are also certified Osho teachers from Poland and abroad, will guide active Osho meditations and fragments of therapeutic program which for years have been supporting the spiritual development of numerous people all over the world (e.g. in the Osho Center in Pune). The full programs will be soon available in Poland via MyMeditation Space Osho Center.
Surrounded by forests, treating ourselves to delicious vegan food, accommodated in comfortable conditions, we will meditate (also to live music), dance, sing, develop spiritually, and get to know ourselves and other participants.
About MyMeditation Space Osho Center
The first Osho Center in Poland was accredited in March 2022, and before that it promoted Osho meditation as MyMeditation Space. It has been functioning in Poland for the past two years and its opening coincided in time with the outbreak of the pandemic. It was then that the MMS founder Urszula Radzińska felt that people need support in keeping their emotional balance stable. She knew from her own experience that Osho meditations are perfect for this. With the support of other meditating friends, she created a space in the heart of the Mokotów district where one can meditate both online and offline, and take part in inspiring, deep self-development workshops led by experienced teachers from Poland and abroad.
About the Zorba the Buddha Meditation & Music Camp program
The camp program has been developed with utmost care to acquaint the participants with no earlier meditation experience with the Osho meditation and therapeutic programs, while keeping the more advanced participants pleased as well. There will also be time for a bonfire, dancing and singing, and listening to – and creating – live music.
Please, be aware that all meditations and workshops will be led in English. English language capabilities at the communicative level are required to feel comfortable.
The main camp programme will include short tasters of the following Osho Meditative Therapies:
- Osho Mystic Rose® – A meditative therapy described by Osho as the most important new meditation since the creation of Vipassana (one of the oldest meditation techniques). Do not be misled by its simplicity. It is traditionally practiced for 7 days in a row, for 3 hours each day. It is composed of three parts or layers: laughter, crying, and silence. It is deeply cleansing and helps overcome the internal patterns. It heals.
- Osho No-Mind® – A sample of a 7-day cleansing program whose important element is the Gibberish. It is making sounds in an unidentifiable language and making uncoordinated, spontaneous movements with your body. It helps stop racing thoughts and experience “here and now.” A one-hour Gibberish practice, preceded by a one-hour silence meditation, and completed with Dynamic Meditation and Kundalini Meditation, helps to stop in the moment and effectively get rid of unwanted thoughts.
- Osho Born Again® – a fragment of a week-long process which allows to discover anew the beauty of childhood – without psychological verbalization or analyzing the past experiences. The process allows you, this time in a conscious way, to go back to the time of innocence and easiness, reminding you of who you really are and what brings joy to you.
- OSHO Reminding Yourself of the Forgotten Language of Talking to Your BodyMind® – gentle, 7-day-long in its full version, process of re-establishing the flow between the body and the mind. It reminds you of the gentleness you should treat your body with, and how serious you should take what it wants to communicate to you.
We will also invite you to join tasters of:
- Art & Creativity – meditation as one of the ways to stimulate creativity and express oneself through art? Yes! These workshops will safely guide you through the process of overcoming your limitations in the area of artistic creation, by taking care of your shame and leading you to a more creative life in agreement with oneself. This is only one step away from a happy life.
- AUM Meditation – AUM stands for Awareness, Understanding, Meditation – it is a Social Meditation that combines movement, role playing and vocal expression. This two-hour meditation guides you in a safe and supportive environment through 14 aspects of the human experience: hatred, forgiveness, love, stamina, life energy, chaos, dance, sadness, laughter, sensuality, chanting, silence, respect and sharing. The AUM Meditation guides you step by step to experience your emotions in a safe way. In this process you will release stress and learn what is going on behind unconscious reactions. This awareness will help you to understand it and what you need. It is a Social Meditation. This means that as co-meditators you will support each other and act as mirrors in which you will be able to see yourself more clearly. The AUM is designed to help you to deepen friendships and create new ones. It will get you in touch with your power and vitality.
- Primal Therapy – a therapy helping to reach and express the deepest emotions. It is a process releasing birth trauma, allowing to regain true childhood, uncover your personality layer by layer, and reconnect with nature. Primal Therapy allows one to reach the turning point to help us live with more spontaneity and be more present than ever before.
- Body Flow – a program of transformation through breathing developed for 20 years. It leads from superficial layers of personality, where we function in a habitual way, through an armor of muscles and thoughts, to the core – internal individuality, authenticity, and vitality. A detox for the body and mind, allowing you to release accumulated stress and tension and bring back the flow of energy and connection with the universe.
During the camp we will also invite you to shared meditations – those practiced most often as well as those used less often. The program will include the following:
- Osho Dynamic Meditation ®
- Osho Gourishankar Meditation
- Osho Nadabrahma Meditation®
- Osho Mandala Meditation
- Osho Laughter Meditation
- Osho Golden Light Meditation with live music
- Osho Mahamudra Meditation
- Osho Chakra Breathing Meditation

About the music
Music plays an essential part in Osho active meditations, as they intermingle silence with sounds. That is why we will make sure that during the camp music is not only a supplement to celebrations, but also a part of them. Because music itself is a meditative process.
The right experiencing of emotions, including pure joy, will be facilitated by outstanding musicians who performed in the Osho Center in Pune numerous times. They have an enormous experience, also in guiding meditation to live music. In addition, they will invite us to listen to and contribute to creating music, dancing, and singing circles.
The following musicians will play and sing for us:
Khalid (Belgium) — electric guitar, vocal
Janesha (Germany) — keyboard, acordeon
Veetam (Germany) — drums, tabla, percussion
Prem Gitam (Germany) — bass guitar
Charaiveti (Romania) — guitars, cobza, ukulele, flutes, vocal
