An exploration of active meditation techniques

Meditation is simply a scientific method, exactly the same as science – their areas are just different. Science begins with doubt; meditation also begins with doubt.
Science experiments with objects; meditation is the experience of your interiority, your subjectivity.
Science requires a mind that has the capacity to concentrate.
Meditation requires the capacity to go beyond mind, to go into silence, to be absolutely a pure nothingness.      Osho

     Welcome to activemeditation.com !

     Wanting to explore the world of meditation? Our website might be what you are looking for, focussing as it does on meditation in general and the Osho Active Methods™ in particular.

     The Osho approach to inner development is unique in that the techniques are designed scientifically, and specifically for you and me: twenty-first century men and women.

     If you're like most of us, you find it difficult, even impossible, to meditate in the traditional manner — that is, to experience inner silence by sitting cross-legged on the floor. You probably feel your mind is noisier, not more silent, than it was before you started. Your body is restless, ill at ease, and — if you do manage to endure the hour — stiff and painful.

     By contrast, all the Osho methods begin with at least one phase of activity. This allows you to loosen up your body and to unburden your mind. Then you are able to move naturally from stress to deep relaxation, silence and stillness.
     And the effect doesn't finish there; with regular practice you will be able to carry an inner centering with you in your regular day, wherever you are and in whatever you are doing.

    A large portion of activemeditation.com is devoted to the most radical of these moving methods: Osho Dynamic Meditation. You can read detailed instructions for each stage, and responses to questions under "Osho Dynamic Meditation" and "Further Dimensions". Also check out OshoDynamic.com.
