Osho Leela – The Land
The Osho Leela Centre is located 5 minutes by car from Gillingham in Dorset, overlooking the Blackmore Vale.
Osho Leela is deeply connected to the soul of nature, the grounds are an essential part of our identity as a centre and permeate everything we do. Whether you’re here for a weekend workshop, a festival, or our longer residential programmes, you will not leave without feeling touched by their tranquility.
We are situated on 18 acres of land, with ancient trees, small forests and a wildflower meadow. We also have a vegetable garden created with permaculture principles, and an apple orchard. Our head gardener – Premen – is passionate about the land, and gardens in a way that is in tune with nature, without the use of any chemical fertilisers or pesticides.
In the summer, our Tipi – Harmony – is used for various sessions, workshops, and sometimes for sleeping in! And we have an earth cob house, built by Premen, for meditation.
If you venture outside of the Osho Leela site, via a short drive or longer cycle ride, you will find several rivers suitable for wild swimming. There are some spectacular walks in the local countryside, and the Jurassic Coast beaches are an hour’s drive away.
