Coming closer to “ARUN/ OSHO Yoga 21 Day immersion”!!! An invitation to participate totally…

Hi Beloved Friend, where ever you are…

This “21 Day OSHO/ARUN Yoga Experience” is being created with students of the ARUN Conscious Touch 2 Year Professional Training at UTA Osho Academy {Koln} in mind. But any one can enjoy, even with no prior experience.  Right now, there are well over 100 friends spread all over the Earth pledging to participate!  And, funny enough, many of the friends in the UTA ARUN have still not answered, so the number will be more!  We really animate you to answer us {if you still have not} with an e-mail or phone call if you are open to participating and sharing your energy with us all.  And, feel free to write anytime with your own questions, difficulties, or whatever.  {I am still hoping to hear from Sarjo sometime soon for some help about how we can get this working on our ARUN Blog, so everyone can interact like we did with the Green Smoothie Cleanse & Detox last year}.

Some of you have practiced Yoga a long time, and some of you have a little bit of experience, and many of you have NEVER practiced Yoga for 21 days in row! So i’m sure we will all enjoy in our our way!  Trust and value your own feelings and insights, without any comparing or judging of yourself… you may be surprised.  Anasha and i are both very clear that the primary key to being able to share ARUN Conscious Touch with others is found in our own ability to “watch inside” our own body and mind to an accurate, truthful, and minute degree… and this ability to witness and be present to our own inner moment-to-moment functioning  “can not be borrowed from others, can not be learned in a book or on the internet, or be developed only by attending groups and classes”.   All these things help prepare us in a way, but the most important thing we do for ourselves comes through “developing our own inner discipline”… realizing that our Body, {or more accurately said- our personal  “Human Energy Field”} is a unique living, breathing temple that needs regular loving attention and care.   Watching inside is the highest art…


This is why i am calling what we are doing “FITNESS”- FOR THE WITNESS!


So, every day, for 21 days {at least!}, you will devote 45-90 minutes to yourself… pick a time and place that works best for you… ANY TIME can be the right time- just make sure it is SOME TIME! The morning before work is good {many people feel a little stiffer in the morning, but after 4-7 days your body will be used to it, and the stretching gets easier}.  Afternoon is good… evening is good– ANY TIME IS GOOD.  The place you do it should be somewhere clean, with good air, free from distractions as much as possible {but if your space is shared by others, or your family, or whatever.  If your kids see you doing this every day, they will be fascinated, believe me!}… let it become YOUR space for the time… being with yourself.   I think everyone can take care of finding the right time and place…  You don’t need special clothes {or any clothes, actually!}, but of course, be comfortable, with your belly happily empty of food and liquids…


So, let’s recreate our skeleton into our own “Buddha Bones”


The NATURAL, HEALTHY HUMAN ENERGY FIELD and SKELETON is flexible in all the joints… the spaces between the bones are designed to move freely in all directions… And equally important- all of “the tubes” – our blood vessels, nerves, lymph, organs, membranes – are allowing a natural flow of their magic fluids. S if you devote at least 45 minutes a day to this “CORE ARUN/ Yoga Sequence”, you will experience “a return to NATURE”.  I will not ask you or encourage you to force anything… really not!  On the contrary, if you start gently with yourself, trusting in the natural, inherent flexibility of your fascia and muscles, within 5 days you will already see and feel that the fascia and muscles and ligaments and tendons and nerves and blood vessels are a little more supple… a little less tight.   What you should do during these 21 days is this:  with each position or asana, move your body in the direction indicated… each different movement is quite simply “temporarily changing the angles” between various bones of your skeleton, and then staying in that constellation anywhere from 20 seconds to 2 minutes {45-90 seconds in about perfect time for the fascia, muscles, tendons, nerves, breath, blood, and craniosacral fluids to benefit and rejuvenate fully.  But when you are beginning and the body is stiff, even 20 seconds sets up your own “RETURN TO NATURE”}.  Pay close attention to the “inner-touch” being generated, and when the stretch produces an interesting sensation, just be aware of it {you may feel one place predominately, or a few places, or many places- the principle remains the same}-… when the “intensity” or “volume” of the sensation gets to a high level, pause wherever you are and just make sure that you are not holding your breath and that you are not unconsciously holding muscles tight that are not needed in that moment {like in your face, or eyes, or arms, your ass, or wherever}.   If it “hurts too much”, just soften the angle of the stretch, until the sensation or inner-touch that you are feeling is “not too much, and not too little”. And how much is that?!?  That is for you, my friend to discover anew, each day, with each “changing of the angles” of your potentially “Buddha Bones”…   Have fun with it.  ARUN/ OSHO Yoga is not serious… in fact, a serious goal oriented attitude is one of the biggest causes of tension and pain in the body-mind.


If you do this, you are gonna feel some pain… not real pain that damages you, but a pain that you consciously control and direct inside your inner anatomy in a way that transforms the energy and removes toxins and self-created obstructions in the natural electro-magnetic flow of energy in your body-mind. Notice i just said “body-mind”… it is an organic unity.  A lot of the pain we experience is more an idea or thought than a reality.  If you closely observe the sensation, you will learn how to create an inner-touch that is beautifully balanced between pleasure and pain… for me, this is one of the greatest things that i have ever learned: how to hold my skeleton in angles that produces a sensation that i refer to as sweet, or ecstatic pain… and the way that i recognize this sensation is that my breath is freely moving freely, the front of my brain is relaxed, and I FEEL NO FEAR!.   It is a very healing and centering and relaxing sensation.  On a neuro-chemical level, when you stretch like that, we open our glands and they begin to secrete fluids that travel through the nerves and blood vessels, encouraging an inner expansion of ALL THE CELLS that is very natural and beautiful… and this opening “vibrates our glands”, and opens the doors of inner perception in a way that makesMEDITATION, or WATCHING INSIDE VERY EASY.  So in these 21 days, be on the alert for this delicate balance while you are “changing the angles of your bones”.


Just do “your best” … be totally there with your body, mind, emotions, sensations, and witnessing… each day will be different for you.  Just be present, alert, sensitive, and loving… then it will be your Yoga, your Union with your Self. Within one week your body will already be feeling happy, although maybe you will be feeling some places stirred up- don’t worry, and don’t give up- it will rebalance on its own if you keep bringing the energy fresh to the meditation every day.  After 2 weeks, your body will be looking forward to your “Personal Time” with an inner smile.  After 3 weeks, you will be feeling that you have some “BUDDHA Bones” underneath your skin!   Every day our bodies are changing, new cells are being created… and daily conscious movements, stretching, and the “Breath of Meditation” that we have started learning with Anasha in ARUN, help these new cells vibrate and be more conscious!

So, in these coming 21 days, i will “sing my song to Yoga” in honor and gratitude to Osho and all the Buddhas and Rishis… and also to what has come to me through 1000’s and 1000’s of hours of lying on the floor, sitting, and standing by myself practicing and exploring Hatha yoga and prana awareness in a non-serious, devoted and open way.  I hope you enjoy…


So beloved friend, enough for now.  We send many smiles and good vibes your way… with love from the heart,  Anubuddha
