A four-day workshop in which we will allow any issues we might have — conscious and unconscious — around the dying to come to the surface.

Featuring meditative methods and structures, this workshop is a unique opportunity to explore the challenges of life and death and to discover the possibility of personal transformation.  Just as is any work focused on inner growth, this workshop is emotionally confronting and yet, in a loving milieu that is created, also meditative and deeply supportive.

Participants can gain a new understanding of death, a renewed sense of gratitude for life and the inspiration to start living in a way that is more personally fulfilling.

Maneesha James read bio here

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.
