This workshop enables us to take a preliminary step in facing our mortality – a subject about which most of us have a lot of fear. Chief among those fears of death is losing control. Unable to trust and let go means that we cannot whole-heartedly give ourselves in love; we cannot truly live.
Within the context of a safe and supportive environment, through discussions and exercises, dance and meditation, we’ll look beneath our misunderstandings, conditioned attitudes and beliefs. We will gently, even playfully, begin to feel our way into a new, experiential understanding of what dying means.
What can you hope to gain from this day? A fresh approach to living-dying that can begin to change your attitude to the most significant subject of all – how you live, how you approach your dying, and that of those you love.

Maneesha has been facilitating workshops and retreats focused on conscious living and conscious dying for the last 20 years. Drawing her inspiration from the many years she spent in the company of the Indian mystic Osho, she creates a safe space for exploring conscious dying using a wide range of meditative techniques and simple structures.
Maneesha has also worked with a number of individuals who were facing death and provided the psycho-spiritual support to help them through the transition of death – she sometimes calls herself a ‘transition midwife’. She is co-founder and co-director of OSHO Sammasati and is a published author. Originally from Australia, Maneesha now has a base in north London.
