“Your ecstasy is a movement towards the height and your meditation is a movement towards the depth. And once you have both, your life becomes a celebration….That is my work, to transform your life from a sad affair into a celebration….Meditate, love, dance, sing, celebrate here with me, and the ugliness will disappear. Bring something higher into yourself, and the lower will be forgotten.” ~ Osho

Celebrating seventeen years. This event is a gift to oneself. We will have live music for meditations, satsangs and celebrations with the band. It also includes nourishing vegetarian home-cooking and comfortable accommodation. The place is located in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains just several hours drive north of New York City. It is unique and something not to be missed.
