Osho Meditative Therapy No-Mind™
Osho No-Mind® is one of the four therapies that Osho created and scientifically designed for the contemporary man. These methods are a breakthrough to meditation, a speeding up process to connect with our natural state of being. The Osho approach to therapy is used as a tool to help prepare the ground for meditation. Meditative Therapies are processes for freeing old, stuck energies, to renew vitality and to create space for silence. They work energetically, bypassing the conscious, analytical mind. They are therefore clear, pure processes where individuals are connecting directly with their own energy. A seven-day group, two hours a day, which includes one hour of Gibberish and one hour of silent sitting.
Gibberish - 1 Hour
In the first hour we have the opportunity to throw out the gibberish of the mind. As Osho explains, "Gibberish is one of the most scientific ways to clean your mind".
What Is Gibberish?
Just say everything that you ever wanted to say and have not been able to say because of civilization, education, culture, and society. Be very passionate, as if you are talking, as if your whole life is at stake. You are talking nonsense and there is nobody except you, but be passionate, be in a passionate dialogue. Saying anything that is moving in your mind, all kinds of rubbish – throw it out. And say it in any language you don’t know! Use Chinese, if you don't know Chinese. Use Japanese if you don't know Japanese. Don't use German if you know German. Shouting, laughing, crying, making noises … making gestures …. Sounds will come – utter them – and one sound will lead into another. Soon you will be speaking Chinese and Italian and French, languages that you don’t know. Simply allow whatever comes to your mind without bothering about its rationality, reasonability, meaning, or significance. For the first time enjoy that freedom -- the same as all the birds have. Do it totally, with great enthusiasm …. Be authentic, honest …. You have to be total. Don’t act or do it automatically like a robot. Be sincere … make it a reality …. So don't be partial, don't be middle-class. Be a first-rate crazy man! Just go crazy without any fear. Don't spare anything. Don't sit there like a Buddha; that stage comes later. Remember, the first step in meditation is to forget the whole world and just bring out all your craziness in rubbish, gibberish sounds, gestures …. As you throw it out you will find yourself becoming light, becoming more alive. But be total because once you are freed of it, then there is a possibility of going deeper into silence than you have ever gone.
Sitting in Silence - 1 Hour
Just be absolutely silent, gather your whole energy inwards, just like you are coming home. "Now you are ready to go inwards with all your consciousness, with all your life energy. Move towards the center of your being. That is from where you have come and that is where everybody goes back. "Deeper and deeper … the deeper you go, the more fragrant becomes the air. The deeper you go, suddenly flowers start showering on you. At the deepest point you are the buddha. The buddha means simply witnessing, pure witnessing. Just witness: the body is there, the mind is there, but you are neither.
