Celebration, and the totality of energy it evokes, is one of Osho's most transfomational devices to help us jump beyond the fears of the mind, beyond the lethargy of the body and into deeper layers of our energy.
The first steps in an Energy Celebration group will be to 'rekindle the fire' of aliveness in the body with breathing, movement, dance, and touch, to help the energy to flow again. We will throw out whatever old luggage of misery, guilt, and unworthiness we may be carrying unnecessarily so that we can meet in innocence, fresh and new, the joyful sources inside.
Together we will play, sing, and share our energies in group processes and rituals which will deepen our trust, and help us to melt and let go into the oceanic oneness that exists eternally and which we can easily fall in tune with. Understanding a few simple keys can open the doors to celebration, moment by moment in everyday life.
Live music throughout the group will provide the background for various meditations, Sufi Heart Dance, Osho Satsang, singing and chanting.
"Give all your energy to joy, and fear will disappear. Ignore fear, don't pay any attention to fear, because the more attention you pay to it, the longer it will linger on. Pour yourself totally in the direction from where joy is arising, and fear will disappear just as darkness disappears when you bring light in. Joy is light. A joyful heart is very close to the stars. .... The joyful and the singing and the dancing and the celebrating are creating their paradise by each of their songs, by each of their dances.
Choose to be divine, choose to be more and more a celebrant, choose to be festive, so more and more flowers can blossom in your being, and more and more fragrance can become available to you. Whenever you have the opportunity to laugh, join; whenever you have an opportunity to dance, join; whenever you have an opportunity to sing, sing -- and one day you will find you have created your paradise."
-- Osho: "The Razor's Edge", Chapter 8
