Yaşamın Özünü Sıkmak :
Hepimizde çoğunlukla sadece ölürken yaşamak istediğimiz gibi yaşamamış olduğumuzu fark ederiz. Yada sadece sonla yüzleştiğimiz zaman anlarız ki en önemli şey yaptığımız şey değil içimizde hangi niteliklerin çiçeklendiğidir –mesela aşk, neşe, sükunet, şükran gibi nitelikler.
Bu çalışma bize; her anın içinde olabilme yeteneği ile, bütün olarak, daha bilinçli yaşamamıza olanak veren çeşitli içsel kaynakları bulmamıza yardım edebilecek meditatif metotlar sağlar. Bu çeşitli teknikler sadece yaşam için bir reçete yaratmaz, aynı zamanda da ölüm içinde en iyi hazırlıktır – yaşanmamış bir hayatın pişmanlıkları ve ıstırabı olmadan.
Ölüm senin düşmanın değildir. Aslında yoğun ve bütün bir şekilde yaşaman için, her anın özünün her damlasını sıkman için bir davetiyedir. OSHO
Squeeze the Juice of Life :
All too frequently only when we are dying do we realize we haven’t yet really lived as we would have liked to. Or it is only when we are facing the end that we see that what matters most is not what we did but what qualities have flowered inside us – qualities such as love, joy, serenity and gratitude.
This workshop provides a variety of meditative methods that can help us find those inner resources which enable us to live more consciously, with the ability to be present to each moment, with our totality. The various techniques create not only a recipe for living but also the best preparation for dying – without regrets and the anguish of an unfulfilled life.
Death is not your enemy. In fact, it is an invitation for you to live intensely, totally, to squeeze every drop of juice from every moment. Osho

Maneesha (aka living and dying celebrant) received sannyas in 1974. She edited all the darshan diaries and wrote, at Osho’s suggestion, what he referred to as ‘the historical documentation of my work’ : a trilogy on the evolution of his work through the various communes. She is now based in Devon, UK, and is creating – along with an ever-growing team – The Sammasati Project. The project, based on Osho’s vision, is a support for those wanting psychological and/or spiritual support in health, in sickness, on the road to recovery or in passing through dying.

Meeting the Indian mystic, Osho, in 1974 unexpectedly changed the entire course of her life.
A 6-week stopover segued into what would be fifteen years of living close to Osho for his 15 last years. An incomparable priviledge. To watch and listen to the American writer, Tom Robbins, talk about Osho, visit

Appointed by him as his chief editor, Maneesha was also lucky enough to be the guinea pig in Osho's early experimentation with meditative methods, a member of his emergency medical team, and the reader-of- questions (on behalf of his people and other seekers) in his daily public discourses. Under the name of Juliet Forman she wrote what he referred to as the 'historical documentation' of his work in the form of a trilogy. (See Youtube interview)
After those many years with Osho, for a further 15 years Maneesha travelled internationally – visiting the US, the UK, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, Turkey, Israel, Japan, India, New Zealand, and Australia – giving seminars, groups, and individual sessions on diverse aspects of meditation.
She has written a regular meditation column for The West Australian, and for the American web magazine, 'Natural Journeys'. She has also facilitated meditation courses with TAFE (Perth, Western Australia), and given numerous radio and TV interviews. Along with the trilogy mentioned above she has written two books on meditation:Una Vita Viva (to date available only in Italian) and My Peak Moments with Osho, the Unsurpassable Man (currently available only in Japanese). She has also created numerous guided meditations CDs, and a second website: www.activemeditation.com. In addition she appears in the documentaries, 'Meditation: The Art of Ecstasy' and 'Death: The Greatest Fiction' (a small excerpt of which is featured in 'A Dialogue with Death'). She was the script-writer and presenter of 'Meditation: Stress-Free Living for Busy Women.'
Maneesha has completed Certificate 1V in Assessment and Training of Small Groups (Australia), trained in Hypnotherapy (Italy) and is a qualified Psychotherapist and Counseller (Jansen Newman Institute, Sydney).
Meeting Anna Freud in London some years ago, and being with her in her last moments, was a turning point for Maneesha. While maintaining her interest in meditation as a resource for all aspects of living, through that experience, she also saw the potential in bringing meditation to the dying process (See 'A Dialogue with Death').
Maneesha is based in South-east London, England. She is co-founder and co-director of The Sammasati Project, which offers a different vision of living and dying – that is, with awareness and celebration. Currently, with co-facilitator, Sudheer P. Niet, she is presenting The Sammasati Support-Person Training in the UK and travelling internationally, offering a series of workshops.
