MeditationIf you are new to meditation, our Meditation section provides an introduction to what meditation is (and isn’t); how to ‘do’ it; tips for the beginner (and for the more experienced); how to choose a method and benefits of meditation.

 

Meditation ToolkitOur Meditation Toolkit provides a wealth of meditation methods and meditation resources including guidance (some from Osho) about meditating during different phases of life – in health & ageing, in illness & pain, in dying or bereavement and in caring for someone who is seriously ill or dying. We also give suggestions of how to guide someone else in meditation and look at how meditation can be used as a window into dying, thereby making it easier for us to deal with. Audio products, details of meditation workshops and articles on meditation can also be found in the toolkit.

Our Index of Meditations can be searched by feature (e.g. time of day) and by subject (e.g. health, pain, dying) or you can choose to practice our Meditation of the Day.

Meditation as a Window into Dying – Foundational to OSHO Sammasati’s approach is meditation as a way to be more conscious in our dying as well as in our living. In this article we explore some of the ways in which meditation and dying are similar.

How to Die Consciously – Forming the most significant and unique feature of our site, these articles explain why we advocate dying consciously, how to prepare for it, being with fear, and knowing ourselves as other than the body-mind: as the inner observer.

See more from the Meditation & Dying Consciously section of our Death & Dying Toolkit.

Our Index of Meditations includes the section Meditations in Dying giving methods for those who are dying or who wish to use meditation to explore death whilst healthy.

If you are a carer, visit the Supporting the Ill & Dying section and our Carer Toolkit.

Facing one's own imminent deathSee Facing one’s own imminent death – perhaps after receiving a terminal diagnosis. This links to resources at this important phase of your life, including how to respond to the issues that you might be facing, deal with emotional changes and die consciously.

Our Index of Meditations includes Meditations in Dying giving methods for those who are dying – to be practised personally or to be guided in meditation.

Part of the emphasis of this website is the emphasis that we are all dying – that life and death is a continuum. However, when we realise that death is close, we can prepare ourselves and our loved ones mentally, emotionally and spiritually as well as planning the practicalities. See the many resources in our Death & Dying Toolkit.

There are many other aspects of meditation to explore for yourself and to recommend to anyone interested in meditation. Especially helpful for newcomers is a free 21-day introduction to Osho on the Mentors Channel.

Currently our website lists death and dying resources based in the UK and a few in the US.

We are planning to add resources for other English-speaking countries initially and then also resources in other languages/countries as sections of the website are translated into those languages.

Feel free to email us if you would like to suggest a resource for an English-speaking country.

See also Translating our website pages

We are planning to have the website or portions of it available in other languages. The site is very large, so this is probably best done organically, with a few pages being translated and more added gradually over time.

Do email us if you are interested in translating and are a native speaker of the language into which you wish to translate.

See the Translations Index for existing translations.

You can also check at the end of web pages to see if a translation is available.
