Osho White Robe Gatherings are a combination of dance, celebration and silence. It is a unique opportunity to immerse in the teachings of Osho through his discourse.
Osho had a saying about White Robe gatherings -“That which cannot be said has to be experienced. This is a great experience of getting into the inner space. Something is experienced in this gathering which no one has been able to define. It’s the peak of all day of work, meditation or groups.”
The gathering starts with some pre-work activities, to help participants settle down, leave behind the chaos of the city and check in to the here and now. From there, everybody is invited to participate and dance with totality, better so we are able to sit silently afterwards in the ambience of intermittent music. Following the sitting, a short discourse by Osho commences in which we absorb and internalise Osho’s words.
Do come freshly showered with no perfume. White robes will be provided for the evening at the venue for you to change into for the gathering.

Through all these years, Ananda continued to learn and develop on various spiritual and healing modalities including Reiki, Osho meditation techniques and Sufi practices like Du’a, Whirling and Gibberish. Having keen interest in music, dance, expressive art and poetry she wishes to encourage their use as therapeutic techniques.She sees beauty in the sacred as well as mundane and derives her bliss from spreading joy!
