Osho Active Meditations are a new way of taking care of both the outer and the inner you. Each programme starts with a physical activity such as shaking, dancing or humming, and is followed by relaxation and stillness. This is when meditation can happen - a time to just be aware of your bodily sensations, thoughts, and feelings in a self-accepting way without judgement.
This meditation uses vocal sounds made by the meditator along with music to open and harmonize the chakras while bringing awareness to them. The meditation can bring you into deep, peaceful, inner silence either through making your own vocal sounds or by just listening to and feel the sounds on the meditation CD within you. This meditation can be done at any time.
Instructions are included with the CD.
Back of CD says: Stressful living and unexpressed emotion can affect our ability to live joyfully and relate to others. Osho Active Meditations are scientifically designed to release the tensions which block the natural flow of energy in our bodies, so that we may become more peaceful and relaxed.
"Osho's greatness was that he didn't give solutions,
only tools for people to realize themselves. 'The answer
is in yourself. I just tell you the potential of your being.'"
- Elle Magazine
We say: Osho's active meditations do not have any speaking or direct guidance on the CD. Instructions are given on the inside of the CD. Most of these recordings were made in the 70s under the direct guidance of Osho.
This CD works its way up stage by stage through the chakras. Each junction is marked by a slight pause in the vocal sounds before the pitch goes up another level. As you make a sound yourself you can feel your voice aligning with that of the CD. A powerful meditation.
Dictionary Terms Explained
Osho was a worldwide renowned mystic born in India in 1931 and left his body in January 1990. He said, "My message is not a doctrine, not a philosophy. My message is a certain alchemy, a science of transformation." In the course of his work, Osho spoke on virtually every aspect of the development of human consciousness.
By the late 1960's he had begun to develop his unique dynamic meditation techniques. Modern man, he said, is so burdened with traditions of the past and anxieties of modern-day living, that he must go through a deep cleansing process before he can begin to discover the thought-free relaxed state of meditation.
By 1974 a commune had been established around him in Poona, India, and the trickle of visitors from the West became a flood. Today this commune is the largest spiritual growth centre in the world. He spoke of the search for harmony and wholeness that lies at the core of all religious and spiritual traditions, illuminating the essence of Christianity, Hassidism, Buddhism, Sufism, Tantra, Tao, Yoga, and Zen.
- 7 energetic centres of human body
The chakras are major energetic centres within the human body. There are seven in total. They are:
Solar plexus (Yellow)
When our chakras are healthy and glowing strongly we feel good. By having about us or using chakra products, wearing chakra jewellery or using chakra stones in healing we are giving focus to this state of balance. If we have good intention we may draw situations to us that help us to change and help our chakras to find or remain in balance.

Reviews - rated 4/5 based on customer reviews4 out of 5 By Vernon MarshallThis CD is a very practical meditation aide that can be used just to enjoy the gentle and relaxing musical sounds or, preferably, to enable one to be replenished by a full contemplation on the seven major chakras. To get the most out of this CD experience it is advisable to read the cover notes that come with the CD. There are simple and clear instructions about how connect to the energies of the chakras. There are three stages involved in this hour-long meditation. The first stage involves 45 minutes of exercises with breathing, the second is whirling, and the third is lying down with closed eyes. Alas, the cover notes are a little misleading as only two stages are mentioned but on a closer read it is possible to get the idea what is included. The music itself has been carefully designed to relate to the seven chakras. The music changes as each chakra leads on to the next. The whole movement of music upward and downward is repeated three times. It is also advised that a visualisation take place at the same time, whatever that may bring about, whether it be colours, patterns or scenes of nature. The instructions then advise lying in silence for 15 minutes to integrate the experience. I would never recommend any CD without trying it out and this one does pass the test. Osho’s material has a flavour that is not to everyone’s taste but I do believe that CDs such as this work because the preparatory work has been done. It is easy to follow where the music takes you as there is a clearly noticeable progression. Anyway, if such a movement cannot be picked up the advice is to imagine such a progression. It may not work for everyone but it......more
View Profile4 out of 5 By Emma, WrexhamOsho Chakra Sounds Meditation CD uses toning notes to work with the chakras. Specific notes are thought to resonate with each chakra and by toning (singing) and focusing on each one in turn it may help to work release blockages so the chakras can open and the energy flows more freely again. Following the pre-recorded toning and music on the CD (or improvising around it) the meditator works from the root chakra up to the crown chakra and then down to the root again, 3 times, with a short space in between. The meditation finishes with 15 minutes of silence to witness what arises within as a result of the toning. I started toning and felt notes resonating in some of the chakras – those that I didn’t feel I perceived were more blocked. This hour long CD may be suited to a more experienced meditator or ‘toner’ which I thought I was bordering on, but I had to think again when my resistance to the time became apparent. At this first hurdle, a humbling challenge which somewhat gleefully demonstrated how there is always room for more growth, my monkey-mind decided that toning whilst doing housework might be a compromise. However, I soon realised my concentration was not fully focused! Already, I was learning. Focusing on the CD alone, each time reminding myself to stay in the moment, enjoy the journey and not to focus on the destination, I do get a little further!
