Celebration Ceremony

for Sudhir / Ron Scala

December 3rd – December 4th

Sudhir / Ron left his body on November 9th at 17:17. It was so sudden that we had little opportunity to say goodbye to him and many of us were not able to do this in person.

Sudhir’s / Ron’s biggest wish was to have a Life Celebration at Osho Leela.

It’s an honour for us to do so and we would like to announce that the celebration will happen on December 3rd at 4pm.

As Sudhir / Ron has a big circle of friends and family, we intend to make this celebration as accessible as possible for everybody. Please feel welcome to join in person, and if you’re not able to travel we hope to make it possible to join via Zoom. More details to follow.

Saturday 3rd December:
3.00pm: Arrival

What’s the schedule all about?

Celebration Ceremony:
The celebration is first and foremost to celebrate Sudhir’s / Ron’s life. We do that by sharing music, hugs, song and dance with each other. There will also be moments where people speak and there will be moments of silence where you can reflect and connect with your heart. Emotions might come up, the dance is an opportunity to allow the emotions to move inside.
Sudhir’s / Ron’s spiritual masters were Osho and Mooji. We will also listen to some audio discourses of them speaking.
Feel welcome and free to join in as much as you wish.

Sharing Memories Circle:
This will be a moment where we can share pictures/video’s and talk about precious moments we’ve had with Sudhir / Ron.

Dynamic Meditation:
Sudhir’s / Ron’s favourite meditation. It is an active meditation and lasts one hour. The meditation consists of five stages: Deep fast chaotic breathing, catharsis, using a mantra “Hoo”, silence, and dancing. For more info follow this link.

Satsang & Silence:
We love to end the gathering with a Satsang which Sudhir / Ron totally loved.
Satsang is an one-hour sitting meditation supported by silence, live music, humming and an audio or words from Osho.
