"People look silent but they are not silent. I would like you to become really silent, and the way is a deep catharsis.
Everybody who has been brought up in our societies needs some methods to vomit anger, sex, greed, jealousies, envies. You are sitting on a volcano...and the volcano can erupt at any moment! If catharsis is allowed -- and that's what Dynamic Meditation is all about -- the volcano will disappear. You will become saner"
This meditation is done with eyes closed
- First Stage - 10 minutes:
Breathe chaotically through the nose, concentrating always on exhalation. The body
will take care of the inhalation. The breath should move deeply into the lungs. Be as
fast as you can in your breathing, making sure the breathing stays deep. Do this as fast
and as hard as you possibly can - and then a little harder, until you literally become
the breathing. Use your natural body movements to help you to build up your energy. Feel
it building up, but don't let go during the first stage.
- Second Stage - 10 minutes:
Explode! Express everything that needs to be thrown out. Go totally mad. Scream, shout,
cry, jump, shake, dance, sing, laugh; throw yourself around. Hold nothing back; keep
your whole body moving. A little acting often helps to get you started. Never allow your
mind to interfere with what is happening. Be total, be whole hearted.
- Third Stage - 10 minutes:
With raised arms, jump up and down shouting the mantra, "Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!" as deeply as
possible. Each time you land, on the flats of your feet, let the sound hammer deep into
the sex center. Give all you have; exhaust yourself totally.
- Fourth Stage - 15 minutes:
Stop! Freeze wherever you are, in whatever position you find yourself. Don't arrange the
body in any way. A cough, a movement - anything will dissipate the energy flow and the
effort will be lost. Be a witness to everything that is happening to you.
- Fifth Stage - 15 minutes:
Celebrate through dance, expressing your gratitude towards the whole. Carry your
happiness with you throughout the day.
