Dance meditation is a form of active meditation which offers the possibility to connect to what lives inside of yourself.

Special Class - Ilanit de Wilde

Dynamic Meditation

With Ilanit de Wilde

14 December 2018

In order to live a more fulfilled life, you will want to get to know your full potential, your true Self. Meditation is the route to that knowing. It is the methodology of the science of awareness.  The beauty of the inner science is that it enables whoever wants to explore and to experiment within, to do so alone. This eliminates dependence on an outer authority, the need to be affiliated with any organization and the obligation to accept a certain ideology. Once you understand the steps, you walk the walk in your own, individual way. Many meditative techniques require one to sit still and silent. But for most of us accumulated stress in our bodymind makes that difficult. Before we can hope to access our inner powerhouse of consciousness, we need to let go of our tensions. The Dynamic Meditations are based on Osho's famous Active Meditations which have been scientifically designed by Osho to enable us to consciously express and experience repressed feelings and emotions, and learn the knack of watching our habitual patterns in a new way.
