A structured retreat based on traditional Zen techniques
“Without knowing yourself, all knowledge is futile; and if you know yourself, you need not know anything that is unnecessary. Knowing oneself, one comes to know the very innermost core of existence, the very center. Experiencing that center is so blissful, so ecstatic that there is no need. You are no longer a beggar; suddenly you have become an emperor.” ~OSHO
AWARENESS INTENSIVE: WHO IS IN?
A structured retreat based on traditional Zen techniques to focus your total energy into the search for who you really are.
AWARENESS INTENSIVE: WHO IS IN? IS A 3-DAY RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM
THE PROGRAM STARTS ON MAY 05, 2022 – MAY 08, 2022
“What is the purpose of knowing the whole world if you don’t know yourself?” ~OSHO
WHY ATTEND THIS COURSE?
Who am I? Where do I come from? Where am I going? The answer to these questions can only be experienced – never verbalized.
Who Is In? is an opportunity for you to move beyond the mind, into the silence of no-mind where all questions simply dissolve into the existential experience of knowing.
The structure of the Who is In? course is based on traditional Zen techniques, designed to penetrate beyond our habitual masks and pretensions and to focus our total energy onto the search for who we really are.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
When you are repeatedly asked the modern koan: -Who is in?- and answer moment to moment, an awareness of the way you identify with the personality starts to develop. Once this is experienced and understood, you shift toward your being, to the center of witnessing. You feel a profound relaxation and the joy of being present in the moment.
Who Is In? gives you all possible support to undertake the journey inward. And by surrendering to the structure provided you will give yourself every chance to experience deep and lasting transformation.
An interview will be taken before registration of the course. This course is an intensive process that requires you to be familiar with Osho Meditaitons and Osho Meditative Therapies. You can also take this course if you are familiar with Yoga and Meditation.

Osho Himalayas Meditation Resort is situated in the beautiful Jia valley near Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh. The campus of Osho Himalayas is lsurrounded by beautiful fields and overlooked by the Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas on one side and pine forests on the other. The mountains have a very special presence. One feels it throughout the day on campus.
All around our campus we are blessed to be surrounded by an immensely rich nature. If you are someone who loves to go for a morning walk or for a walk later in the day. You can pick and go on a different walking trail each day of the week. And you come back refreshed for your next meditation session or meal or to rest at the campus.
This region has a moderate climate round the year, with many sunny days throughout even the chilliest months of January and February with an annual average temperature of about 19 degrees celsius. As an escape from the hot season in the plains, Osho Himalayas is an ideal place to immerse yourself in the silence of the Himalayas any time of the year.
The area is a good mix of ancient Hindu and Buddhist culture as well as famous for its trekking tours and picturesque views that are a wonderful way to explore the mountains. There are many beautiful roads leading through small villages and towards the incredible and magnanimous Dhauladhar mountain views. The nearby trek to Himani Chamunda or to Triund, right at the snow line, as well as places such as Dharmakot and Bhagsu-Nag, are tourist attractions.
There is a rich cultural life in the area with many lovely temples dating from the early medieval period; Baijnath Shiva temple, Chamunda Devi, and many more. You can enjoy the local cuisine Kangri Dham and local tea grown here in the numerous tea gardens.
About 16 km away is McLeod Ganj, a former British hill station and now famous for the Tibetan Government in exile and the palace of the Dalai Lama. There has been a strong Tibetan Buddhist presence in these mountains for several decades, which complements the peaceful meditative atmosphere with many monasteries around and our favorite is the Karmapa’s Norbuglinka monastery. All these Buddhist temples depict the rich Tibetan art and culture.
Also, about 25 km away is the famous mystical Andretta which is anything but another ordinary Himalayan village – it was a meeting point of some great minds in theatre, art, and pottery in the last century and is experiencing something of a cultural renaissance again with famous Sobha Singh Art Gallery.
About 40Kms away, lies Bir Valley, a world-famous destination for paragliding.
