Osho International Meditation Resort: A Rejuvenating Green Space

Just five minutes of exercise in a "green space" such as a park can boost mental health, researchers claim. There is growing evidence that combining activities such as walking or cycling with nature boosts well-being.

In the latest analysis, UK researchers looked at evidence from 1,250 people in 10 studies and found fast improvements in mood and self-esteem.
This latest research is published on the online edition of The BBC News.


What the researchers have found anew is an age-old secret. It's no wonder, visitors coming to the Osho International Meditation Resort immediately feel relaxed and rejuvenated when they step in the greenery enhanced by running water falls and singing birds.

The lush 28-acre campus is a tropical oasis where nature and the 21st Century blend seamlessly, both within and without. With its white marble pathways, elegant black buildings, abundant foliage and Olympic-sized swimming pool, it is the perfect setting to take time out for yourself.

This emerald paradise is inspired by The Osho insights of creating a natural environment where people experience meditation the moment they come in.
Osho says: " Receptive people, sensitive people, are imaginative people. Those who can see the greenery of the trees, just without any aggression on their part, not even a subtle aggression on their part, who can just drink the greenery of the trees, who can simply absorb it as if they are sponges -- they become very creative, they become very imaginative. These are the poets, the painters, the dancers, the musicians -- they absorb the universe in deep receptivity, and then they pour whatsoever they have absorbed into their imagination."
