When Zorba Meets Buddha

‘Live in this world because this world gives a ripening, maturity, integrity…the challenges give you a centering, an awareness. And that awareness becomes the ladder. Then you can move from Zorba to Buddha. The buddha is asleep in the zorba. It has to be awakened. And nobody can awaken you except life itself.

‘First become a zorba, a flower of this earth, and earn the capacity through it to become a buddha – the flower of the other world.’   

 OSHO: The Perfect Master


This 3-day workshop is for everyone who would like to live equally at home in the outer world as in the inner world. We will nourish our active, life-loving self with the part of us that longs to let go into the stillness and silence inside. Our journey will include some of the less well-known methods that Osho has given us. PLUS: you are invited to bring to the workshop your own questions around living in joy and centeredness, and we’ll find a method to correspond to your need.

What can you get from this workshop? More skills and greater understanding to transform your everyday life into one of relaxed awareness, openness and joy.

As Osho says, our everyday life is our temple, and just through adding awareness to what we do, many things will start changing. Life is less problematic, and our new perspective enables us to appreciate and delight in our outer world. In addition, being with others in the workshop environment for these days can be a strong affirmation of meditation as a priority in your life.
