  • What is the AUM?

    The AUM meditation is a guided process in fourteen stages, lasting two hours. Together with the other participants, it leads you through an exploratory and healing experience of fourteen major aspects of human nature: hatred, forgiveness, love, stamina, life energy, chaos, dance, sadness, laughter, sensuality, chanting, silence, respect and sharing. AUM stands for awareness, understanding and meditation.

    It is an excellent exercise to keep yourself alive, vibrant and open. The AUM is a Social Meditation – a great opportunity to meet old friends and create new friendships.

    The AUM is one of the basic techniques used in OSHO Humaniversity groups, and it has become a very popular meditation around the world. Read More
