We are delighted to welcome you to a 3-day residential meditation retreat with Swami Anand Arun. We have been inviting Swami Arun to conduct retreats in Florida every year since 2014, and every time he brings a fresh breeze of joy and bliss all the way from the Himalayas. Swamiji’s depth of understanding of Osho meditations and Osho’s message is truly remarkable, but it’s his presence and his touch that transformed many. He calls it a blessing from his master Osho, and it will be this blessing, this energy shower that we will merge with and meditate in.
About Swami Arun
Bodhisattva Swami Arun is one of the first Osho sannyasi who received guidance directly from Osho, one of his intimate disciples who initiated almost 100,000 people into Osho’s Neo Sannyas (Disciplehood). A meditation retreat with him is a wonderful growth opportunity for everyone interested in Osho meditations. He is the founder and coordinator of Osho Tapoban – an international Osho commune and a Himalayan forest retreat in Nepal.

LET US BEGIN THE JOURNEY HOME
“Wake up lovers, it’s time to start a new journey.
We have seen enough of this world, it’s time to see another.
These two gardens may be beautiful, but let us past beyond them,
and go to the gardener himself.
Let us kiss the ground, and flow like a river towards the ocean.
Let us go from the valley of tears, to the wedding feast.
Let us bring the colors of blossom to the over pale faces.
Oh my heart, shiver like autumn leaves about to fall.
In this world of dust there is no avoiding pain or feeling excited.
Let us become like beautiful colored birds and fly,
fly to the sweet land of paradise.
Everything is painted with the brush of the invisible one,
let us follow the hidden sign, and find the painter.
It’s best to travel with companions, on this journey only love can be the way.
We have stayed at home, scared like mouse, let us find courage and join the lions.
Let our souls turn into mirrors, longing to reflect the essence of beauty, of the Beloved.
Let us begin the journey home.” – Mevlana
