6. September 1 – Evening Kundalini Meditation with Elizabeth
6:30 PM – 8 PM
2205 Cornerstone Blvd, Edinburg, Texas 78539
“Join Osho Sannyasi Elizabeth Lomas for a special active meditation Saturday evenings at the Infinite Love Center in Edinburg. This is a gift from us to the community. So, there is no cost to attend. Wear comfortable clothing.
OSHO KUNDALINI MEDITATION
This “sister meditation” to the OSHO Dynamic is best done at sunset or in the late afternoon. Being fully immersed in the shaking and dancing of the first two stages helps to “melt” the rock-like being, wherever the energy flow has been repressed and blocked. Then that energy can flow, dance and be transformed into bliss and joy. The last two stages enable all this energy to flow vertically, to move upwards into silence. It is a highly effective way of unwinding and letting go at the end of the day.”

5921 N 23rd St, McAllen, Texas 78504
