TRIBES OF NOTHINGNESS - AN OSHO MEDITATION CAMP
This camp is an opportunity to find time and space to go within - coupled with an experience of nature and the delight it can bring, when the bodymind is conscious and the senses are open. The approach is essentially experiential. Everything in the program - the location, the accommodations, the meals and provisions is designed to bring you back to yourself - aware, loose and natural.
You see, modern societies are constantly driving their people outside of themselves through technology, the media, pressures of professional life and a goal oriented life style. The result is a fragmented mind in conflict with itself. Consequently man feels divided and disconnected from him/herself and nature. Seeing this, it becomes clear that human beings need a reset, a turning around and moving within. This Camp can give such an impulse and reconnect you with your original sense of being.
We have been teaching OSHO Meditations and related modalities for decades helping people find practical ways into meditation. These methods and their approach are at the heart of the program of the camp. OSHO Meditations include physical activity as a first step to help you release the accumulated pressures and tensions that you carry in the body-mind. This first step is a must for modern man before he/she can enter into meditation.
In the second step an alive and vibrant silence and relaxation become possible through these methods. We have created a sensibly balanced program for the seven days. They can become a journey of transformation for the participant. There are intensly active parts that help you to confront and change negative live patterns, there is the profound silence that arises out of the meditative group processes helping you to grow roots into a practice. There is also time to rest and integrate. A silent and individual communion with the nature that surrounds you will be the flavor of the camp.
With love and sensitivity and decades of experience in sharing OSHO Meditations we aim to create a space for the adventure of meditation. 'We' are Ali von Stein, Rajni Company-Moya and a group of friends and supporters, that helped conceive and create the Tribes of Nothingness. We love the contemporary mystic known as Osho and his vision for a new spirituality and a new man. These meditation camps are inspired by his vision.

He has been researching the practice and effects of meditations in the urban environment for the last 30 years in New York City / Berlin and around the world.

Rajni Company-Moya has made meditation an essential aspect of her life. Music and singing have been a big influence for her from early on. She is a certified nurse and meditation facilitator.
The location of the retreat can be found on the southernmost tip of Europe where two continents, two oceans and eight winds meet. The ancient Greeks used to call this region the pillars of Hercules and it marked the end of their known world. Nestled in a Valley about a 20 minute ride northwest of Tarifa the retreat land expands on a 25 hectar plot next to a national park. It is protected from the winds that make the coastline such a favourite destination for kite surfers. There is an abundance of plant life, a river that makes it's way through some gentle curves around the land. A couple of horses roam freely and the guests are provided for from a historic finca at the entrance of the property. Accommodation is in spacious two bed tents with solid floors and carpets - a very comfortable safari like set up. Showers and toilets are provided at the main house as well as at water stations on the land. The meditation hall is a bedouin tent situated close to the finca.
