Community Experience Weekends &
Community Experience Weekends
Our Community Experience Weekends are
an amazing way to experience what it's like to live communally. They are a great
opportunity to meet new people, and an amazing way to celebrate, have fun, hang out,
meditate, create connections, and party with us here at Osho Leela,
in the heart of the Dorset countryside.
Community Experience Weekends have been in our program for the last seven years and are
an excellent introduction to life in our vibrant, hard-working, and juicy community.
We are dedicated to friendship, togetherness, meditation, and self-development, and
love to open our doors and our hearts and say "Hello" to newcomers.
Our goal is to give you a special experience that will warm your heart, fill
you with love and help you build friendship bridges.
Our community is based on the simple ideas of respect for each other and giving
everyone the space to relax and be themselves. We are also party people and usually Saturday nights are a chance to dance,
celebrate and let our hair down in good company.
Leela is a place where people of all ages and backgrounds can just come and be. You can come
with friends, with a partner, or on your own.
A typical weekend looks like this:
Dinner from 7 pm., followed by a welcome meeting where everyone has a chance
to meet each other, some dancing and then hanging out in the bar.
Saturday is made up of optional meditation morning and evening, project work in
the gardens, house or kitchen and an evening party which can be fancy dress or hot
disco or jazz night.
On Sunday morning there is the optional AUM Meditation - a transformational social
experience that is not to be missed - followed by brunch, a clean-up and the goodbye
gathering at around 4 pm.
Because this is an introductory weekend to Leela and we ask for some support in
improving our house and grounds, we keep the price down to a minimum.
This is in single-gender shared rooms. Single or double rooms are available for a
The weekends are led by the community members, we think these are the best value
country house weekends around anywhere.
If you are looking for a new experience and an opportunity to be in the beautiful
Dorset countryside and a chance to meet new friends and old, in a warm and friendly
environment, this is it.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.

newcomers or just a chance to really let go for two days and enjoy meditations,
