An OSHO Festival is an annual or biannual gathering centered around Osho’s vision of a more fulfilling life, focused on meditation, creativity, and a celebratory approach to life. The program and activities comprising the festival, along with the collective effort of many in its organization, create an opportunity to immerse oneself in the atmosphere of meditation for a few days. The OSHO Festival emphasizes the individual participant’s experience, with everything designed as an opportunity for consciousness and enjoyment.
“I am here to seduce you into loving life; to help you become a little more poetic; to help you die to the mundane and the ordinary so that the extraordinary explodes in your life.” – Osho
Osho is a contemporary mystic whose teachings defy classification, encompassing everything from individual existential quests to pressing social and political issues of today’s society. His books are not written but transcribed from recorded audio and video of his spontaneous talks given to an international audience. As he himself says, “Remember: whatever I am saying is not only for you… I am also speaking to future generations.”
Regarding his own work, Osho has stated that he is helping to create the conditions for the birth of a new kind of human being. He often characterizes this new human being as “Zorba the Buddha,” capable of enjoying the earthly pleasures like Zorba the Greek and the silent serenity of Gautama the Buddha. Throughout Osho’s work, there is a unifying vision that encompasses the timeless wisdom of the East and the highest potential of Western science and technology.
Osho is also renowned for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, offering an approach to meditation that takes into account the fast pace of contemporary life. His unique meditations are designed to first release accumulated tensions in the body and mind, making it easier to experience the relaxed and thought-free state of meditation.
No. The Festival is an opportunity for you to firsthand experience and explore meditation. The program is designed with a blend of Active Meditations and practical workshops suitable for people of all levels. Prior to starting any activity, instructions will be provided so that you can participate in Spanish with English translation.
The program combines OSHO® Active Meditations, workshops on various subjects such as tantra, family constellations, body awareness, creative arts, live music, dance, singing, and play in nature. Activities often occur simultaneously, inviting you to flow from one activity to another and learn the magic of going with the flow.
You will also have the opportunity to personally experience the revolutionary OSHO® Meditative Therapies in demonstration sessions, as well as some of the social meditations from OSHO Humaniversity in the Netherlands, such as the AUM Meditation.
As a complement, you will have the chance to participate in different individual sessions, including counseling, tarot readings, massages, energy readings, human design, acuabalancing, and a long list of options that you can find in the program.
Music and creativity play a vital role in the Festival, and this year we will have the OSHO Festival Band, who will offer concerts and provide live music during some of the meditations and gathering moments, both during the day and at night.
Activities start at 7:00 am with the OSHO Dynamic Meditation and continue until 11:30 pm at night. You can check the agenda section prior to the start of the Festival for more details.

Can I bring my pet?
That sounds great. You have the freedom to choose the activities that inspire you the most. You will meet other people with similar interests who have often come to enjoy the Festival without companions as well. It’s an ideal opportunity to connect and socialize.
There will be an area dedicated to the exhibition and sale of books, music, and items related to Osho. There will also be an area where you can leave your advertising or display your products or crafts related to the theme of the festival. However, please consult with the organizers beforehand for more information and to arrange any necessary arrangements.
Taking photos during workshops, meditations, or program activities is specifically prohibited to protect the privacy of participants and to ensure that you are not distracted from the activity in which you have chosen to participate.
