Can I participate in Osho Multiversity Courses during my time in the Living In Work as Meditation Program?
The Learning Program has a number of Multiversity courses included, related to learning Inner Skills for your work and daily life.
The program is designed to work best when approached totally, taking on the minimum eight hours a day, seven days a week. First time visitors may like to participate in some courses or therapies before starting the work-as-meditation Living In program. Another option is to participate in further Osho Multiversity courses after you finish this program. Or you may want to consider one of the other Living In programs available.
(See below: What are the possibilities for outside of work times?)
Why do we work seven days a week?
There are no weekends off or vacations during the time of your participation. This is part of the technique of transforming old habits around work: Not having "time off" to look forward to, helps you get the knack of making this very moment come alive. This program is challenging, exciting, unique, and it works!
Do I choose my own work?
No, after an initial tune-in talk the work is assigned, and it may be changed several times during your stay. One facet of the program is learning to enjoy change, to be flexible and fluid when confronted by the unexpected – a very useful skill in today's work environment. Be ready for the unforeseen, and whatever comes your way can be used for self-discovery, for being more aware and alive.
What are the possibilities for outside of work times?
The Meditation Resort offers a full range of activities and you can choose what suits you. From meditating in the OSHO Auditorium, evening dance parties, swimming in the pool and other sports activities, to silent sitting, all the Meditation Resort facilities will be available to you. In addition, a wide array of Multiversity morning classes and evening events are offered outside of working times. Some examples of morning classes are: Yoga, Tai Chi, Chi Gung, Belly Dance, Movement Integration and Gibberish. And for evening events, some examples are Humaniversity AUM, Tantric Pulsation, Gurdjieff Movements and Family Constellation.
