being aware of this we fail to live our life to the fullest by repressing from
indulging in various interesting or exciting activities like sky diving, river
rafting, bungee jumping or loosing your virginity for that matter. This is
because we are very use to confine ourselves in preconceived notions. What we
need to do is liberate your soul which can be done by doing active meditation.
These modern techniques of meditation were introduced by
Rajneesh Osho, who was a well known guru of spirituality during his times. These
techniques do not make it mandatory for the learner to sit in a stationary
position at the time of doingmeditation. He or she can indulge in activities
such as singing, clapping, dancing, laughing, and humming and so on. You can
learn them in group by enrolling for active meditation course offered by their
institute known as Oshodhara.
