This is a one-week process created by Osho to rediscover the beauty of childhood without verbalizing or analyzing our past psychological experiences.

The course includes one hour of allowing yourself to just be a child again, and one hour of silent sitting together as a group.

For the first hour you behave like a child. Just enter your childhood. Whatever you wanted to do, do it – dancing, singing, jumping, crying, weeping – anything at all, in any posture. Nothing is prohibited except touching other people. Don’t touch or harm anyone else in the group.

BECOMING A CHILD AGAIN

Once upon a time we were all real! Just naturally ourselves. When we wanted to laugh, we laughed. When we wanted to cry, we cried. When we were angry, we were angry. We danced and jumped and shrieked with delight. Playfulness was our essence. We lived in innocence, knowing nothing, except what we needed in that moment.

We were very small and needed the love of others, it was our only security. The price for that love was that we started “growing old,” rather than just naturally maturing and “growing up.” The day we became good boys and girls was a catastrophe. We stopped growing – we became artificial, unnatural, serious….

Also, the world around us was so exciting and we wanted to go “out” and discover everything, and so we became so knowledgeable about everything except ourselves. In the process we forgot who we really are, and lost the innate ability of relaxing into not-knowing.

Now is our chance to take ourselves back to that same fork in the road. This time we can consciously choose to take the path of playfulness, innocence, naturalness, laughter… rediscovering our originality, individuality, and freedom. And once we are on the road of authenticity, then finding ourselves, finding our center, finding our own inner joy will happen by itself.

Then follows the hour of just sitting silently. You will be fresher, more innocent, and meditation will become easier.

SITTING IN SILENCE

“You are using awareness without being aware of it, but only about outside things. It is the same awareness that has to be used for the inside traffic. When you close your eyes there is a traffic of thoughts, emotions, dreams, imaginations; all kinds of things start flashing by.

 

“What you have been doing in the outside world, do exactly the same with the inside world and you will become a witness. And once tasted, the joy of being a witness is so great, so otherworldly that you would like to go more and more in…. From unawareness to awareness is the greatest quantum leap.” Osho

 

“This great experiment through which we are passing is basically to achieve your lost childhood again. When I say, ‘your lost childhood,’ I mean your innocence, your eyes full of wonder, knowing nothing, having nothing, but yet feeling yourself at the top of the world. Those golden moments of wonder, joy, no tension, no worry, no anxiety, have to be regained, rediscovered. The sage is nothing but the circle that started in your birth coming full way, complete, back to the same point.

 

“This is your second childhood. You are born again. Your eyes are no longer filled with the dust of knowing. But this not-knowing is a tremendous perceptivity, a great clarity. It does not need to know, because it feels, and feeling is a higher state than knowing. As the clarity becomes more and more transparent, instead of feeling it becomes your being.” Osho

New European privacy law
The General Data Protection Regulation (AVG) applies as of 25 May 2018. This is a new European privacy law. As a result, privacy is the same in all countries of the EU. Now the member states still have their own national laws.

The General Data Protection Regulation (AVG) thus replaces the old Personal Data Protection Act (Wbp), which prescribes that healthcare providers properly secure medical records. For example, they must ensure that only authorized persons have access to a patient’s file.
The AVG lists a number of mandatory measures that a therapist has to meet because they record data in client-files.

YOUR PRIVACY
To support a good treatment, it is necessary that I, as your therapist, make notes and keep them in a encrypted digital file. This is also a statutory duty imposed by the Medical Treatment Contracts Act (W
GBO).

Storage period
These details in the client file, as required by the law on the treatment agreement (WGBO), are retained for 15 years.

Patients’ rights
The rights of patients with their medical records are secured partly in the WGBO, and partly in the Wbp. Patients have the right to view their medical records and to request correction, addition or destruction of their files.

What exactly is saved
Your file contains notes about your personal details, health status and short notes of the date and course of the treatments performed. For courses this consists of the questionnaire and any additional questions.

In the file, data are also included, if necessary, that are necessary for your treatment and that I have requested, after your explicit consent, from a care provider, e.g. from your (other) therapist or general practitioner.

Who sees what
As your attending therapist, I have sole access to the data in your file. I have a legal duty of confidentiality (professional secrecy).

When a course is organized abroad, and translation is necessary, the organizer and translator have access to the data and they work under a signed mutual duty of confidentiality.

The data from your file can also be used for the following purposes:
1.    To inform other health care providers, for example if the therapy has been completed or with a referral to another therapist. This only happens with your explicit permission.
2.    For the anonymized use during peer review.
3.    A limited part of the data from your file can be used for the financial administration, so that I can draw up an invoice.
4.    The invoice is, if necessary, consulted with my tax advisor for making the annual tax return and any tax inspection.
If I want to use your data for another reason, I will first inform you and ask your permission explicitly.
