To help the contemporary seeker reach an experience of meditation, self-observation and inner stillness much easier and faster, Osho, the twentieth century Indian mystic, created several active meditation techniques. These meditations are used by millions of people around the globe with extraordinary results, and aid the modern-day seeker to experience inner silence and stillness a lot faster than what be achieved through a long passive sitting. The Osho Meditations are not only fast and effective, but they are also easy and enjoyable to practice.

White Rock Mindfulness Community

We gather to practice mindfulness and meditation together as a community inspired by the teachings of  Thich Nhat Hanh.

Meditation helps to heal and transform. It helps us to be whole and look deeply into ourselves and around us in order to realize what is there. The energy that is used in meditation is mindfulness; to look deeply is to use mindfulness to look into the heart of things to see their true nature. By looking deeply, one gains insight or wisdom.

We gather together for sitting and walking meditation, followed by tea, Dharma study and discussion. We chant together. We engage in deep listening and loving speech.

No fee required. Donation for the use of space is appreciated. No one is turn away for lack of fund.

 Please note sessions are on hold until further notice. Please check back for updates. Thank you.
