Join us for a divine, relaxing weekend of meditation, music, dance and celebration in the beautiful Seven Oaks Retreat Center, located in the tranquil rolling foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
OshoFest is an excellent opportunity to connect with oneself and others in a loving and supportive atmosphere of meditation. It is the greatest gift you can give YOURSELF. It is an invitation to take a timeout from the busy routines of daily life and the many demands of family and work. Rediscover your overflowing life-sources within, nourish your soul and realize your potential for a joyous and creative life.
Silence and inner peace is our birthright. But In today’s modern world, anxiety and stress make it difficult to relax deeply enough to enjoy our natural state of inner silence. We have become so burdened with the mind — its endless stream of habitual thoughts, memories from the past, hopes for the future — so much so, that blessings of meditation are for many a faraway dream. Meditation helps one set aside the mind so that we can more easily drop old, stale life-patterns that get in the way of us manifesting a more divine, abundant, and loving lifestyle.
The powerful meditation techniques in OshoFest, many of them accompanied by live music, will open the wings of the heart and soul leading to a deeper understanding of who we are. This event is an ideal introduction to meditation for those new to it and also a good ‘refresher’ for experienced meditators. Insights gained in OshoFest can have a long-lasting, profound, and life-changing effect. So come ready to be transformed! Come ready to find new clarity within! Come ready to launch the positive changes in your life you may have been deeply longing for. Yes — there is going to be LOTS of music! Yes — LOTS of dancing! And yes — there is going to be LOTS of singing! So be prepared — to ENJOY!!

“The music I play reflects my understanding of meditation and love. The themes of my songs are universal and can be appreciated by all travelers on the path of truth and self-realization. We are all on this beautiful planet to celebrate the great mystery of life – with our songs, our dances, our silences of the heart. As humanity moves into the twenty-first century, this could never be more relevant.”
