The Osho Miasto Institute

A set of typical Tuscan farmhouses, connected by an avenue of pines, surrounded by meadows, orchards and gardens full of flowers and vegetables, by a mosaic of groves, scrubs, glades, a lake, and all around valleys and hills covered with oak woods. In this space, the Osho Miasto Institute was born from the passion for nature and the earth, for essentiality, beauty, joy and meditation.

An ancient rural village

The central body “Basho” is surrounded by other buildings used for different functions: offices, kitchen, dining room, guest and resident accomadation, meditation rooms, Oshop and the bar. Buddha Hall is the main meditation hall, the meeting place for the three daily meditations. Basho includes the offices, a common room, the Oshop and, on the first floor, accomodation for residents.

Zorba Restaurant

After a meditation or a group session, a meal with friends in the “Zorba” restaurant in Miasto is certainly one of the most nutritious and interesting things of the day. Our kitchen prepares strictly vegetarian meals with vegetables, legumes and mostly organic cereals seasoned with the awareness and care that permeates the actions and work of our staff.
