Sudheer P. Niet
Sudheer and Maneesha are co-facilitators of The OSHO Sammasati workshops.
Sudheer is an experienced meditator and teacher of meditation. Over the past 35 years, he has used many different meditation techniques and has helped hundreds of people to get the knack of meditation. He has been on the journey of meditation with the Indian mystic, Osho, the Buddha of our times, who developed a science of transformation for the modern man.
Sudheer received training in self-hypnosis from Dr. Brian Alman, a student of Milton Erickson, M.D., the father of modern hypnosis. He trained in NLP and Hypnosis in Pune, India with Prabodhi and Premananda, as well as with H. Hoenderdos, a student of Richard Bandler, one of the developers of NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
For the past eighteen years, Sudheer has been involved in the management of the Osho International Meditation Resort, an oasis in Pune, India, where visitors can have a direct experience of living with more alertness, relaxation and celebration as ‘Zorba the Buddha.’
Sudheer has been giving courses in the Meditation Resort in Pune and also in Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Spain, Netherlands and the US – usually 6 months of the year in Pune and 6 months travelling. These courses include:
OSHO Mystic Rose and OSHO No-Mind, OSHO Born Again, as well as OSHO Meditation Training – for facilitators, OSHO Life Zen, Vipassana Retreat, Zazen Retreat, Self-Hypnosis for Meditation, Opening to the Heart, Watching the Fire (a course in Tantric Meditations) and several courses to help integrate meditation and awareness in your daily life, for example Inner Skills for Work and Life, Bringing Meditation into your Daily Activities.
Sudheer also gives individual sessions in Meditation Counselling, Auriculotherapy and Osho Neo-Reiki.
It is a delight to be with Sudheer. He brings a unique quality of meditation that seems to be so deep, gentle and easy that it lights up the room and everyone in it. He has a delicious sense of humour, and a capacity to lead us into profound spaces where understanding and transformation can happen as if by themselves.

I attended the Sammasati training last year which was co facilitated by Sudheer. The course was an opportunity to explore our fears about death and dying in a safe and supportive environment, and to learn skills in supporting others who are dying. I am a nurse working in a hospice, and so this course was very relevant to me professionally as well as personally and has enabled me to work with patients with greater courage and creativity.
I found Sudheer to be a very skilled facilitator, he is truly authentic, and creates an environment within which participants feel safe and nurtured whilst exploring subjects which may be challenging. Sudheer shares his passion and enthusiasm for this work with warmth and humour. He is knowledgeable and experienced, and inspires group members to trust and have confidence in his role as facilitator. Sudheer encourages the free sharing of thoughts and feelings, enabling a strong sense of support and community within the group. He also acknowledges and values each person's contribution in a nurturing way which brings out the best in the participants. Sudheer guided us to keep to the structure and intentions of the course in a gentle and flexible way, and brought a lot of light heartedness, fun and laughter to the group.

I have experienced Sudheer co-facilitating many workshops on very challenging subjects and with very challenging group participants. For me, his main quality is that he is always grounded in his own deep experience of meditation. This is his foundation, and he also has a sharp mind, a warm and open heart, and a strong, calm, meditative presence. He doesn't allow his ego to get in the way. His interventions are always considered, to-the-point and very timely. He was also a fantastic communicator / teacher of meditation methods, of Osho's wisdom (and this to someone outside that particular tradition, so in a very accessible way), and of relaxation techniques.
