This is a Meditative Therapy – an ingenious invention for the contemporary humanity. The possibility to easily get the experience of meditation and its benefits. It combines the best of therapy and meditation providing us cleansing and expansion, freedom from narrowing mind’s control and strength for creativity, refreshing the whole our system on many levels.
The greatest plus of a Meditative Therapy – the process of healing bypasses our conscious mind, so no need to understand reasons and sources of our issues – they are being resolved in bulk.
This simple technique can give you whatever you need now at the most and afterwards it will stay with you as a good friend available for practice and sharing.
This is a 7-day process for two hours a day, designed by Osho, to clean rubbish from the mind:
USING SPONTANEOUS SOUNDS, ANY CONSCIOUSLY UNKNOWN LANGUAGES, TOGETHER WITH OUR BODIES AND ENERGY MOVEMENTS, WE CREATE THE SPACE BEYOND THE MIND WHERE EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE WITHOUT ANY LIMITATIONS.
1 hour gibberish, going consciously crazy, allowing any sounds which come from inside, in any language except a language you know.
1 hour sitting silently.
No-mind means intelligence; mind means gibberish, not intelligence. And when I am asking you for gibberish, I am simply asking you to throw out the mind and all its activity so you remain behind, pure, clean, transparent, perceptive. Osho
Osho first introduced the No-Mind meditation as part of his evening discourses on Zen. Later on, it became a group process, lasting for two hours a day for seven days. For the first hour, participants do gibberish. For the second hour, they sit silently, doing nothing.
Here is an excerpt from the talk where Osho first introduced the meditation:
The first part is gibberish. The word ‘gibberish’ comes from a Sufi mystic, Jabbar. Jabbar never spoke any language, he just uttered nonsense. Still he had thousands of disciples because what he was saying was, “Your mind is nothing but gibberish. Put it aside and you will have a taste of your own being.”
To use gibberish, don’t say things which are meaningful, don’t use the language that you 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. For the first time have a freedom – the same as all the birds have. Simply allow whatever comes to your mind without bothering about its rationality, reasonability, meaning, significance – just the way the birds are doing. For the first part, leave language and mind aside.
Out of this will arise the second part, a great silence in which you have to close your eyes and freeze your body, all its movements, gather your energy within yourself. Remain here and now.
