The Mystic Rose Therapy
The Healing Power of Laughter, Tears, and Silence
Mystic Rose is a three-week therapy, lasting three hours per day. During the first week, participants laugh "for no reason at all," dissolving the blocks to their inner spontaneity and joy. The second week is devoted to crying, and the third week to silent watching and meditation.
Uniquely simple and effective, these methods involve a minimum interaction among the participants, but the energy of the group helps each individual go more deeply into his or her own process. A facilitator, who has gone through the process and has been trained in conducting it, gives you instruction for the therapy.
“I have created a new meditation therapy. The first part will be laughter - for three hours, people simply laugh for no reason at all. Digging for three hours you will be surprised how many layers of dust have gathered upon your being. It will cut them like a sword, in one blow. For seven days continuously, three hours every day...you cannot conceive how much transformation can come to your being.
And then the second part is tears. The first part removes everything that hinders your laughter -- all the inhibitions of past humanity, all the repressions. It cuts them away; it brings a new space within you. But still you have to go a few steps more to reach the temple of your being, because you have suppressed so much sadness, so much despair, so much anxiety, so many tears -- they are all there, covering you and destroying your beauty, your grace, your joy.
So for seven days, you have to allow yourself to weep, cry for no reason at all - the tears are just ready to come. You have been preventing them. Just don't prevent.
Finally the third part is Silence: witnessing: The Watcher on the Hills. After the laughter and the tears, there is only a witnessing silence. Witnessing on its own is automatically suppressive. Weeping stops when you witness it, it becomes dormant. This meditation gets rid of the laughter and tears beforehand, so that there is nothing to suppress in your witnessing. Then the witnessing simply opens a pure sky.”
No Mind Therapy
A 7-day process for 2 hours a day, designed by Osho, to cleanse and de-stress the mind.
No-Mind is one of the meditative processes that Osho created shortly before leaving his body.
The first hour is gibberish, where all the rubbish of the mind is thrown out in nonsense language, sounds and movements of the body.
The second hour is spent in silence, sitting with eyes closed and witnessing.
Gibberish when done with absolute intensity, takes us out of our logical mind and into the realms of the mysterious and spiritual. It supports participants to move beyond their usual boundaries of expression and daily structures, to experience a state beyond mind.
