Osho – the master of masters, a modern day mystic whose wisdom, rebellious spirit and humor has transformed the lives of millions around the globe. His teachings liberated people from the shackles of religion and conformity. Osho coined the concept of a new man – Zorba the Buddha, one who celebrates and meditates.
Osho’s teachings are an amalgamation of the healing arts of the East and modern therapies of the West. This festival, a gratitude to the enlightened master, will give us a taste of his work: Tantra, Zen, Sufism, esoteric sciences, and centering techniques, breathwork, yoga, biodanza, heart dance, and many Osho active meditations. You will also have the opportunity to get one-on-one sessions with the healers and therapists. The evenings will be blessed by Osho’s discourse in the White Robe gathering. After dinner, there will be musical and dance performances, talent show, closing party or special night meditations.
Come let’s live Osho’s vision… And in spirit, meditate with the Buddha, dance with Krishna and celebrate with Rumi!

Dmitriy speaks about himself. Since childhood, I was drawn to self-knowledge, to overcome doubts, fears and, most importantly, to become myself. At the of age 33, I started to change my life and in search for direction and tools of alteration I found yoga. In 2013, I went to my first 10 days of Vipassana retreat. In 2014, I found the amazing Indian musical tradition of playing Bansuri (flute). This tradition seems to be present in the form of pranayama, meditation and opening the perception of the spiritual states of consciousness.
Playing the bansuri brought me a real comprehension of the tools and I combined it with the purpose of yoga. In 2015, I got acquainted with the Practice of mindfulness. Knowledge and methods of this practice complimented and combined my experience in working with the body, mind and heart. This was the awareness needed for all the previous yogic practice — self-awareness to reach the state of openness. As a result, In 2017 began the practice of Pranasuri, the purpose of which is the transfer of knowledge, experience and practical tools for achieving health, inner balance and a state of unity with oneself.
