The meditation techniques that will be covered are intoning the sounds, third eye, Nadabrahma, Osho Kundalini, chakra sounds, chakra breathing, Gourishankara, relaxing body and mind, conscious sleeping and dreaming, Vipasana, and Zazen.

The entire eight limbs of the Patanjali system are also sometimes referred to as Dhyana or the meditative path. Although strictly speaking, only the last four limbs constitute meditation Pratyahara, Dhyana, Dharana, and Samādhi. The preceding steps are only to prepare the body and mind for meditation. A meditation starts by being separated from the mind and by being a witness. That is the only way of separating yourselves from anything.

Many meditative techniques require one to sit still and silent. But for most people, the accumulated stress in the body and mind makes it difficult. Before you can hope to access your inner powerhouse of the consciousness, you need to let go of your tensions. Active meditations have been scientifically designed by Osho for the contemporary man. The activity itself creates the situation in which passivity happens.

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali or Aphorisms (20 hours) - 11:00 to 13:00

  • Chapter two: Sadhana Pada (practice)
  • Chapter three: Vibhuti Pada (progressing)
  • Chapter four: Kaivalya Pada (liberation)

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali succinctly outlines the art and science of yoga and meditation for self-realization. It is a process of systematically encountering, examining, and transcending each of the various gross and the subtle levels of false identity in the mind until the jewel of the true-self comes shining through. When Patanjali codified or compiled the yoga sutras, he was not that created a new system was, but rather the ancient practices were summarized in an extremely organized and scientific way. Chapter one and two will be covered during 200-hour Hatha yoga teacher training course.
