“Everything changes. Only your witnessing buddha remains unchanging. It is the very center of the cyclone.” Osho
Is fear keeping you small?
Probably the most common reaction to the world we are living in right now is fear, in the form of chronic worry, anxiety or panic. These emotions can undermine our capacity to live a joyful and fulfilling life. We will explore a variety of meditative strategies that bring you to an experiential understanding of fear and help you to transform it.
“Times of crisis are both dangerous and immensely important. They are dangerous for those who have no courage to explore new dimensions of life… The daring individual can use this opportunity to go beyond mind.” Osho

Maneesha’s sessions – on meditation, all life-related issues and those around dying – are based on her 47 years’ experience of meditation. In addition, she spent seven years in Osho’s evening meetings (“darshan”), observing and recording his conversations with seekers from all over the world. This unique opportunity provided her with a passion for experimenting with meditative techniques and an invaluable learning in responding to a vast range of issues from a meditative perspective.
The experience of twenty-plus years as an international meditation-based course facilitator continues to broaden her understanding, love, and respect for those she works with.
"Emotions cannot be permanent, that's why they are called emotions; the word comes from motion, movement. They move, hence they are emotions. From one to another you continuously change. This moment you are sad, that moment you are happy; this moment you are angry, that moment you are very compassionate; this moment you are loving, another moment full of hatred; the morning was beautiful, the evening is ugly. This goes on.
"This cannot be your nature because behind all these changes something is needed like a thread which holds all of them together. Just as in a garland you see flowers; you don't see the thread, but the thread is the one who is holding all the flowers. So these are all flowers: sometimes anger flowers, sometimes sadness flowers, sometimes happiness, sometimes pain, sometimes anguish. But these are all flowers and your whole life is the garland. There must be a thread, otherwise you would have fallen apart long before. You continue as an entity, so what is the thread, the polestar? What is permanent in you?” - Osho
