Who We Are
What is Humaniversity Therapy?
Our therapy comes from a blend of many schools of Eastern and Western psychology. Much of our work is done in a group setting, so that you are supported by the people around you.
Our therapy is based on two principles. First we help you to let go of everything that holds you back from what you want in life. Second we will support you to create the life that you’ve always dreamed of. In a safe environment you will take risks to step out of your self-imposed limits and practice new ways of being.
We use sharing, bodywork, emotional expression and healing exercises in order to clear out your old, stored pain and frustration. We help you to replace it with love and the inspiration to move forward. We will guide you to open your heart in a healthy way to others. When you go home, you will be able to apply the practice you’ve had here to improve your relationships and the overall quality of your life.
Who is Osho?
Osho was an Indian mystic, master and teacher. His philosophy and teachings have inspired much of the work of the Humaniversity. Osho promoted a life based on awareness, love and responsibility. He interested Westerners especially because he discussed topics from Eastern and Western philosophical and spiritual traditions in a lighthearted way, making them easily accessible.
At his community in Pune, India, he encouraged people to meditate and to participate in therapy in order to gain a deeper understanding of themselves. This community exists today in Pune as the OSHO International Meditation Resort. Osho’s discourses have been recorded in countless books which are sold all over the world in many languages.

Many of Osho's followers took on a new name as a sign of their new commitment to learn about themselves. This is what is meant by becoming a "sannyasin" or disciple. Many of our therapists and staff have unusual names for this reason. You are not expected to be, or become, a follower of Osho in order to participate in our programs. Each person's spiritual beliefs are respected.
