Use this is an opportunity to dive into 7 days long transformational journey!

This special 7-day residential program is designed to have a little break from your busy lives and to have a chance to relax your nervous system, create, silence and joy. It is life changing opportunity to clear and clean your mind-body-being.

Osho® No Mind Meditative Therapy is designed for the contemporary man. Meditative Therapies are processes for freeing old, stuck energies, to renew vitality and to create space for silence. They work energetically, bypassing the conscious, analytical mind. They are therefore clear, pure processes where individuals are connecting directly with their own energy.

In addition to No Mind process we will be offering on a daily basis: Osho Dynamic and Kundalini and Nadabrahma Meditations, alone time, walks in nature, hikes, sitting by the ocean on beautiful sandy beach, soothing cleansing foods to calm and energize the body, as well as the use of biotechnologies that help the body rejuvenate and relax.
