Studio Evolve

A Revolutionary Retreat.

Of Inquiry, using Zen Koans to move us into a no-mind experience. A Koan is a riddle that breaks through the barriers of false identity to bring awareness to the pure light of being.

The Koan addresses the existential question, ‘Who am I.’ It takes you beyond conditioned beliefs, beyond the name you were given at birth, beyond gender and professional roles, to a place where all sense of ‘I’ and ‘me’ disappear.

There is no greater ecstasy than to know who you are. Osho

Awareness intensive is a highly structured process, combining modern communication techniques with the ancient wisdom of self –inquiry from Zen and Advaita. Active meditations, silence, working meditation and a cleansing diet, brings awareness to this present moment where life is meditation.

The retreat offers complete support for the participant to directly experience the koan. All your needs are taken care of so that your energy is completely free to be dedicated to the search. In some moment when all sense of ‘you’ dissolves, when subject and object disappear, then there is only direct experiencing. Some say it is like, encountering Truth, truth that cannot be spoken and yet is directly known within the experience. All sense of separation disappears as Grace enters in.

“When you are in deep meditation, you feel a great serenity, a joy that is unknown to you, a watchfulness that is a new guest. Soon this watchfulness will become the host. The day the watchfulness becomes the host; it remains twenty-four hours with you. And out of this watchfulness, whatever you do has a wisdom in it. Whatever you do shows a clarity, a purity, a spontaneity, a grace." Osho

This is a real retreat from the everyday ‘who’ you are not, inviting a deep relaxation into who you are.
