Gurdjieff Movements Workshop in Israel September

Gurdjieff Movements Performance - Osho Meditation Centre

Interested in developing your ability to BE more in the present moment and quieten the constant chatter going on in the mind ?  Then take a few minutes to read on, a wonderful opportunity awaits.

The delightful Jivan Sunder, a highly acclaimed Gurdjieff Movements teacher will be in Israel to lead a Gurdjieff Movements Workshop in the beautiful 4000 year old city of Acre (akko) September 12-13th 2008. The course will be in English.

During the weekend workshop, whilst learning 4-5 of these simple and immensely graceful movements,  participants have an opportunity gain insight into the strategies of their personality.  ‘Personalities are often precisely mirrored in the individuals approach to working with the movements’ says Jivan. ‘Its an interesting and very profound experience to begin to know one self from this perspective.’

‘Working together, we learn to become aware of the energy within us that motivates the movements and can then witness the energy in action.  With a greater sense of presence, feelings of harmony between body mind and emotions are created which naturally enhance ones grace.’ 

Who is Gurdjieff and What are the Movements?  (excerpts from Jivan’s website)

‘Gurdjieff Movements are the work of enlightened Armenian mystical artist and teacher, George Gurdjieff (1870-1949).

Gurdjieff created the Movements as part of his teaching system, basing them on various religious dances and rituals he saw while travelling throughout Asia.

He created each of the movements, of which there are over 150, as exercises to develop in his students what he called ‘presence of being’ – being present –  being completely aware of the present moment & not slave to the unconscious mind.

With the focus on being in the present moment, the movements, unlike most dance forms today which are a purely artistic/aesthetic experience, are more concerned with the spiritual/mystical experience, to bring about a higher state of consciousness and awareness. Hence the dance becomes a meditation’

Workshop leader Jivan

Gurdjieff Workshop Leader Jivan

Jivan teaches the Gurdjieff Movements throughout the UK and Europe and also leads Gurdjieff Movement Groups in the Osho Meditation Centre in Pune, India. 

The Indian Mystic Osho considered the Armenian mystics dance movements extremely effective  in encouraging a deep movement towards the source, towards the centre of being and towards greater consciousness.

The September workshop is a great opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of life for a weekend, learn something new and enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of ancient Acre (akko).

Nestled on a rocky cliff, with stunning views of the north & south coasts, the sea side fishing village atmosphere of Acre‘ is delightful.  Take a morning walk through the old city , visit the markets or take a dip in the ocean, theres a few lovely beaches.  And don’t miss eating at possibly the best  hummus restaurant in the whole of Israel.  Said’s Restaurant is a much loved local favourite. Just ask a local for directions.

Osho Therapy Israel – Path to Love Intensive 14-20 October


 
Osho therapy a path to love oct 14-20th 2008

Osho therapy a path to love oct 14-20th 2008

 Osho Therapy Course A Path To Love will be offered in Israel with the dynamic course leaders Satyarthi & Alima  on October 14 – 20th 2008.

Osho Therapy is highly acclaimed in the world of personal development and inner growth. The world renowned courses are held around the globe throughout the year and over 200,000 people annually  venture to the Osho meditation Centre in Pune India, to participate in courses, meditate, develop self awareness and simply take time out from their busy lives to focus on inner growth.  

The Path to Love course being held in Israel in October is a wonderful opportunity to participate in an very beautiful process to develop and awaken your self love.

Below is an excerpt from course decscription on the Path to love website

The Path of Love is an intensive, highly structured 7 day process in which participant’s are supported to passionately focus on their sincere desire or longing to realize their full human and spiritual potential.

This longing, combined with love for the Truth, provides clear inner guidance and direction for spiritual unfoldment. The longing of the heart is benevolent, but as it is oriented towards Truth, it ruthlessly reveals internal layers of identification, concepts, judgments, beliefs, negativity and emotionally charged defensive positions that keep us separate from directly experiencing our True Nature.

By honestly facing and burning through these layers, a very profound opening in the heart happens which is usually experienced as Love. This Love softens the spiritual journey making the challenges bearable and the journey sweet as well as giving meaning, purpose, compassion and ultimately Freedom to the seeker.

This Path of Love process, taken with a firm, focused intention, a sincere longing for Freedom and happening in the presence of deep compassion and respect, presents the possibility for the participant to have a significant breakthrough or shift in consciousness.

The Path of Love is a journey of honest inquiry into our True Nature; a path of devotion, prayer and longing for the Divine Beloved while taking full responsibility for the creation of one’s life.

The course will be held in English and with many participants coming to Israel from abroad there will be a lovely international atmosphere.

Mystic Rose is a powerful meditative therapy created by Osho, one of Indias finest mystics and possibly one of the most most teachers of the 21st century.   
When Osho created this powerful therapy he is quoted as saying I have invented many meditations, but perhaps this will be the most essential and fundamental one. It is the first major breakthrough since Vipassana 25 centuries ago”   
 MYSTIC ROSE  is a  3 week course, which runs every day for 3 hours.
 
Week 1: Laughing for 3 hours for seven days. This removes all the inhibitions and repression that hinder our spontaneous laughter and natural joy.

Week 2: Crying for 3 hours for seven days. This uncovers the next layer of repression. All the agonies and tears, allowing a great unburdening and release of pain and suffering.

Week 3: Observation for 3 hours for seven days . Be the “watcher on the hill.”  With a thoroughly cleansed heart, one sits silently in meditation.
