The Metanoia Osho Kundalini Meditation

What is Kundalini meditation?

Kundalini meditation derives its name from “kundalini,” a concept in yogic philosophy that refers to a primal energy situated at the base of the human spine, coiled like a serpent. According to yogic philosophy, individuals can awaken this energy and channel it to attain higher states of consciousness and spiritual awakening.

Osho, a spiritual teacher, developed a structured meditation practice aimed at unlocking this kundalini energy. The Osho practice incorporates movement, catharsis and stillness. It is designed to facilitate the release of pent-up emotions, tensions and energy blocks, allowing for the freer flow of energy throughout the body. This active form of meditation fosters deeper relaxation, inner peace, and a closer connection to the Self.

Osho Kundalini Meditation typically occurs at sunset and follows four steps:

  • 15 minutes of shaking
  • 15 minutes of dancing
  • 15 minutes of standing still or sitting down
  • 15 minutes of lying on your back in shavasana (dead body pose)

The practice is accompanied by music dedicated specifically to its purpose, changing every fifteen minutes to signal the start of the next step.

Who can participate?

Anyone can engage in this form of active meditation.

When is the ideal time?

It’s preferably done early in the evening or whenever the need arises. Nowadays, Osho Kundalini music is freely available on YouTube, making it easy to continue your practice at home if our introduction resonates with you.

Why shaking?

Shaking is a natural method to release tension and restore the body to homeostasis. It represents a primal response to stress and can be observed throughout the animal kingdom. Animals naturally shake after experiencing a life-threatening event, a familiar sight for dog owners. Unfortunately, people are often socialised to maintain composure in tough situations or to discuss issues. However, psychological research indicates that reliving a traumatic event without fully releasing its impact may have adverse effects. Untreated trauma can remain trapped in the body, potentially worsening over time and negatively affecting physical and emotional health. As aptly put by Bessel van der Kolk: “The body keeps the score.”

In moments of threat, our sympathetic nervous system triggers the release of significant stress hormones to prepare us for action – fight, flight, freeze or collapse. Once the danger subsides, our parasympathetic system takes over, allowing us to relax and recharge. This is when animals shed their previous nervous state, an observable phenomenon like the ripple down the side of an impala that has escaped a predator. Animals shake off danger and fear, and we are wise to follow their example. Shaking activates the parasympathetic nervous system, signalling to the brain to calm down, relax and let go. Furthermore, shaking activates the lymphatic system, which helps the body to eliminate toxins.

It’s easy to imagine that past threatening situations have left imprints on our system. Shaking offers a natural way to release these old energies, aiding in a full return to balance and a relaxed state of mind, body, and soul. Therapeutic shaking helps release deep patterns of stress, tension and trauma in a safe and controlled environment.

How to practice?

Wear comfortable clothes, remove your shoes and socks and contemplate your intention. You can keep your eyes open or closed. Remember, there’s nothing to prove; your process is your own. Feel free to let go without forcing it – there’s no need for drama. Focus on your intention, let the music guide you, and your body will respond naturally. You may be clever, but your body is wise!
