Dynamic Meditation
Dynamic Meditation is the popular morning meditation for the modern man and woman, including deep rapid breathing and catharsis. It's a powerful way to kick-start your day. It is best to have an empty stomach and wear loose comfortable clothing. This revolutionary meditation technique is designed to use intense physical activity to cleanse the body and clear the mind and leave you relaxed aware and open. It helps you to break through negative emotions and patterns by releasing the tremendous amounts of energy that are locked up in them. Opening the way to a new vitality and an experience of profound silence.
This is a meditation in which you have to be continuously alert, conscious, and aware. Whatsoever you do, remain a witness.
–Osho

Kundalini Meditation
Kundalini Meditation is one of Osho's most popular and potent meditations techniques. It involves shaking, dancing, sitting silently, and relaxing. Known as the sister meditation to Dynamic, Kundalini Meditation is traditionally done in the afternoon to let go of the accumulated stress of the day. It acts like an energetic shower, offering a gentle yet effective way to open yourself to more flowing energy and leaving you refreshed and mellow.
When I say shake, I mean your solidity, your rock-like being should shake to the very foundations so that it becomes liquid, fluid, melts, flows. And when the rock-like being becomes liquid, your body will follow. Then there is no shake, only shaking. Then nobody is doing it; it is simply happening. Then the doer is not.
–Osho

Chakra Breathing Meditation
This meditation can help you to become aware of and experience each of the seven chakras. It is active and uses deep rapid breathing and body movement, accompanied by musical sounds, to open and bring awareness and vitality to the chakras.
Each chakra has its own form, its own music, its own taste, its own smell. The deeper you move inside yourself, the more you find the whole world, because if it is not within you, you cannot see it without either. Something is needed to correspond. –Osho

Chakra Sounds Meditation
Chakra Sounds Meditation is a gentle way to activate and harmonize the energy centers of the body, working with the vibrations of musical sound and your own vocal sounds.Vocal sounds made by the meditator open and harmonize the chakras while bringing awareness to them. Chakra Sounds Meditation can bring you into deep, peaceful, inner silence either through making your own vocal sounds or by just listening to the music and feeling the sounds within you. The music was recorded during a live performance of muscians and singers working very closely with the makers of the meditation. In this way, the music not only uses the exact sounds which will activate each chakra, but also musically illistrates the character of each individual center. The meditator is advised to sing along and harmonize with the music. Singing "aw" (to rhyme with the English word "jaw") will help the sound to vibrate inside the body and increase the effect of the meditation.

Nadabrahma Meditation
Nadabrahma Meditation is based on an ancient Tibetan technique. Done sitting and with eyes closed, this method uses humming and hand movements to create an inner balance and stillness, a harmony between mind and body. In this state, it is easy to slip out of both and just become a witness.
When you chant a sound your body starts vibrating; your brain cells particularly start vibrating. If rightly done youe whole brain becomes tremendously vibrant, and the whole body also. Once the body starts vibrating and your mind is already chanting, they both fall in a tune. A harmony - which is ordinarily never there - between the two. When body and mind are both together, you are free from the body and the mind - then the third element, which you are in reality - call it soul, spirit, 'atma',, anything - that third element is at ease because it is not being pulled in different directions. The body and mind are so much engrossed in chanting that the soul can slip out of them very easily, unobserved, and can become a witness - and can stand out and look at the whole game that is going on between the mind and the body. They become drunk with chanting, and you slip out. –Osho

Nataraj Meditation
Nataraj Meditation is a method that uses dance as a total meditation. There are three stages, lasting a total of 65 minutes. This is a meditation in which you must disappear completely into the dance... dancing so deeply that you forget you are the dancer; letting go of the ego; until you simply become the dance. Afterwards, you will feel fresh, young. But it is not meditation yet. The dancer must go, until only the dance remains.
Let the dance flow in its own way; don't force it. Rather, follow it; allow it to happen. It is not a doing but a happening. Remain in the mood of festivity. You are not doing something very serious; you are just playing, playing with your life energy, playing with your bioenergy, allowing it to move in its own way. Just like the wind blows and the river flows - you are flowing and blowing. Feel it. And be playful. Remember this word "playful" always - with me, it is very basic. In this country we call creation God's leela - God's play. God has not created the world; it is his play
.” –Osho.

Gourishankar Meditation
Gourishankar
Meditation is a powerful centering technique that works on the third eye. This one-hour nighttime meditation consists of four stages of fifteen minutes each, including a breathing technique, gazing softly at a light, and gentle body movements. The first two stages are preparation for the spontaneous "Latihan" of the third stage. If the breathing is done correctly in the first stage, the carbon dioxide formed in the bloodstream will make you feel as high as Gourishankar (Mt. Everest).
Gourishankar (Mt Everest) represents the highest peak of consciousness. This meditation opens to that space, a space beyond the mind. When you stop thinking for the first time, then the wildness of existence opens its doors, then the unknown opens itself to you. Osho.

Mandala Meditation
Mandala means circle. Every circle contains a center. The aim of this technique is to create a circle of energy so that centering results naturally. At the end, one is left in absolute stillness, absolute silence.

The mind is a mandala, a circle. If you watch, you become aware of the vicious circle of the mind. Again and again it brings the same emotions – the same anger, the same hatred, the same greed, the same ego. And you are just a victim. Becoming aware of the mind, you break the circle, you are no more identified with the mind.” – Osho

No Dimensions
This is a powerful method for centering one's energy in the Hara – the area just below the navel. It is based on a Sufi technique of movements for awareness and integration of the body. Because it is a Sufi meditation, it is free and non-serious. This one-hour meditation has three stages. During the first two stages the eyes are open but not focused on anything. During the third stage the eyes are closed. The music, created especially for this meditation, begins slowly and gradually becomes faster and faster as an uplifting force.

Whirling Meditation
Sufi whirling is one of the most ancient techniques, one of the most forceful. It is so deep that even a single experience can make you totally different. Whirl with open eyes, just like small children go on twirling, as if your inner being has become a center and your whole body has become a wheel, moving, a potter’s wheel, moving. You are in the center, but the whole body is moving. Osho.

Giberish & Let Go
A method of release using sound and body movement, Gibberish has been described by Osho as “one of the most scientific ways to clean your mind.” It is followed by a guided relaxation into a state of complete let-go.

The Art of Listening
The Osho audio talks are keys to understanding silence. For the first time in history, talking is used to provide an experience of listening, not to gain knowledge but to directly experience one’s own center of stillness, silence and relaxed awareness.
