Opening to the Inner Child

“The spring is there, and the fresh water is still running there – but rocks have been put around you. You have been blocked. Once those rocks have been taken away again you will become a child. It will be a rebirth. Again, you will start flowing. Again, your eyes will have luster and your face will have joy. Again, you will become luminous.” Osho

 
Some of the natural qualities of a child are innocence, playfulness and joy and a sense of wonder about the mystery of life. Rather than supporting these qualities, parents and society force their own values onto the child’s vulnerable mind and vital, spontaneous impulses are slowly repressed.

This is a healing process to uncover the layers of emotional hurt, allowing them to be felt, expressed, and dissolved in a loving atmosphere. The result is a space of meditative awareness in which the natural child, with all its aliveness, can re-emerge.
 

“Meditation simply means learning to forget all that you have learned. It is a process of deconditioning, a process of dehypnosis.” Osho

 

AFH – The OSHO Freedom Process

With his profound understanding of the conditioned mind, and of the transforming power of meditation, Osho reframed the Fisher-Hoffman Process, an egocentric system; transforming it into what he called the Anti-Fisher-Hoffman Process.
This deep work enables us to liberate ourselves from any source of conditioning, be it from family, religion or society.

“My effort here is to destroy all conditioning – Hindu, Mohammedan, Christian, Jewish … it does not matter what kind of conditioning you are carrying; I want you to drop it. It is a weight. And through all the therapies, I am trying to do something else which the West has not understood yet. Through therapies they try to bring you to normal humanity. Their psychoanalysis brings people to what they call sanity. My therapies – and all the psychoanalytic methods used here – have a different purpose. It is not to make you into normal, average, so-called sane people: it is to cleanse you of all traps, all theories, all religions, all kinds of conditionings. All these therapies here are deprogramming you and leaving you free, without any program. The negative part is being done by the therapies – they destroy your programming. And the positive part is done by meditation.” Osho

 
In our childhood we have always been directed to be, and to behave, in a way that was acceptable to our parents and society, rather than to be true to ourselves.
This has created a layer of conditioning and a false self which masks our true essence and hinders us from living a rich and full life – in our work, in our relationships and in our creativity.
When we look inward we have no idea who we truly are; we find instead a deep longing to find love and freedom.

The AFH process opens us to an understanding of how our conditioning has been created and how it has been passed down from generation to generation. From this understanding comes freedom, grace, and responsibility for our own lives.

“And if you can risk, totally risk, not preserving anything, not playing tricks with yourself, not withholding anything, suddenly the unknown envelops you. And when it comes you become aware that it is not only the unknown, it is the unknowable. It is not against the known, it is beyond the known. To move in that darkness, to move in that uncharted place without any maps and without any pathways, to move alone into that absolute, the quality of the warrior is needed.
Many of you still have a little of it left because you were once children; you were all warriors, you were all dreamers of the unknown. That childhood is hidden but it cannot be destroyed; it is there, it still has its own corner in your being. Allow it to function; be childlike and you will be warriors again. That’s what I mean.”
Osho

The Rebel

Living life according to our conditioning leaves us running around in circles, repeating patterns that keep us addicted, co-dependent, and fixed in negative behavior patterns.
Finding the source of our conditioning and addressing our unconscious patterns, enables us to start living our lives in a new way – in tune with the essential qualities we were born with.

“Don’t become a revolutionary; become a rebel. A rebel is one who has no ideology, no ideals, who has nothing to impose upon himself, who takes life as it comes and takes it easily, who enjoys it, dances it and sings it. This spontaneity will give you the flavor called meaning. Otherwise life becomes just a repetition of the past. It is no more alive – just formalities and rituals; it becomes burdened.” Osho

 
The Rebel focuses on developing our ability to watch without judgement – the key to a life of tremendous joy and freedom.

“A rebel is one who does not react against the society, who understands the whole game of it and simply slips out of it. It becomes irrelevant to him.” Osho

 
This course is recommended as a preparation for AFH – The OSHO Freedom Process, and some previous experience with primal related work is required.

“The rebel is in a state of tremendous love with freedom — total freedom, nothing less than that. Hence, he has no savior, no God’s messenger, no messiah, no guide; he simply moves according to his own nature. He does not follow anybody; he does not imitate anybody. Certainly, he has chosen the most dangerous way of life; full of responsibility, but of tremendous joy and freedom.” Osho

 
This course is residential and in silence and isolation.
