Join us for a 3-day Osho meditation retreat "Journey from alone to alone" with Swami Satya Vedant.
Swami Satya Vedant was initiated into Sannyas by Osho in 1975. He holds a Ph.D. degree from the University of Michigan, U.S.A., and M.A., Ph.D. from M.S. University of Baroda, India. Sw. Vedant has given numerous talks, participated in seminars and conferences and has presented workshops in India, Canada, and the United States of America. His workshops have been mainly focused on Stress Management and Managerial Effectiveness, Leadership, Human Relationship, Women and Self Empowerment, Education, and Health Enhancement for the Police.
Swami Vedant's publications include books and a wide range of articles published in journals, magazines, and newspapers in India, USA, and Australia. He has given numerous public lectures and has held workshops around the world including at the United Nations, The World Bank, the Pentagon, as well as at Dr. Deepak Chopra's program in San Diego.
This is his Second retreat in New York. The Glimpses of his previous retreat is available here. Swami Vedant also led us into meditation during the Master's day celebration at Osho Sadhana Center, the glimpses of which are available here.
This is a great opportunity to be in the presence of Swami Vedant for both beginners as well as advanced seekers. There will also be an opportunity to take "Sannyas"(Initiation into Osho Disciplehood) during the retreat. It is recommended to participate in all days of the camp for deeper experience, but you can participate in two or 1 day too.

Camp report - Ah! The Journey from Alone to Alone - August 24-26, 2012
From August 24 friday evening till sunday evening on August 26, 25 friends from Boston, New York, Philadelphia, New Jersey and Connecticut came together at The Days inn at Stroudsberg in Pennsylvania near Mount Poconos. These three days of Journey of meditation, celebration and ecstasy were facilitated by Swami Satya Vedant who brought love, joy and silence to the whole group. The energy of meditation instantly turned the hotel conference room into a sacred space.
We experimented with several Osho Meditations including Dynamic, Kundalini, the meeting of Osho White robe brotherhood and several others. Swami Vedant engaged us into a very interesting sharing session where we had to individually answer and listen without judgement, three questions about Change. What is change? What prevents change? How change effects people around us? Three groups came with various points and beautiful insights.
Besides meditations, we listened to Osho and saw him on video, dancing and celebration with his sannyasins. We all felt Osho was amongst us. On the 2nd night, three friends were initiated into Osho's neo-sannyas, a life of love, meditation and celebration. There were several opportunities to ask questions and Swami ji gracefully helped us towards resolving those questions. It was a beautiful experience for all participants and was very hard to say good bye's at the end of the event. Everyone of us returned with much joy and gratitude.
Although meditation is a journey from Alone to Alone, from here to here; it was effortless meditation and a sheer blessing to be in presence of Swami Satya Vedant. We can't wait him to be back. Click here for the pictures of the events.
