Osho Rajneesh (Kuchwada, 11/12/1931 – Pune, 19/01/1990) – Spiritual master
Osho was a meditation and therapy teacher who taught his methods to millions of people in the 70’s and 80’s. He invented many techniques to help the modern man to develop his potential, connecting the Western Psychology with the Eastern Meditation.
If I had to point out the essence of his contribution to humanity in few words, I would say that he was able to find the Spiritual Side of the modern Psychology/Psychotherapy and the Therapeutic Side of the ancient Meditations. Osho connected the two using unique methods that combine Bioenergetic, Primal and Emotional Release Techniques with meditations like Vipassana, Sufi whirling dance and Nadabrahma.
I personally attended many and different workshops and I experienced a long individual therapy lead by the therapists and the meditation teachers in the Osho world. The essence of his work is to help people to get out of control, to go inside their emotions and feelings, and to start to live an intense and creative life. It is a path of Freedom and Love, that goes from the head to the inner core of the human heart.
