The Last Resort - A hospice for a meditative transition

Maneesha James, is working towards creating a beautiful, vibrant and lively space for anyone who is a sannyasin/ a meditator, and/or who would like to die with the support of meditators, in tune with Osho’s vision of dying consciously and celebratively. 

Maneesha James has been facilitating meditation groups around the world related to death and dying, as well as working individually with people who are dying, with carers, and with those in bereavement. The guinea pig in the early seventies when Osho was designing his active methods, she has practiced the many of the techniques herself over the past 35 years. Pre-sannyas she graduated in general nursing, midwifery and psychiatric nursing. She has been trained in hypnotherapy, and more recently completed a post-graduate degree in Psychotherapy and Counselling, in Sydney, Australia. According to Maneesha, Europe is seen as the ideal location.

Maneesha is looking for support from sannyasin friends. She says, ‘With our meditation, music, love and joyfulness we can create a beautiful, vibrant, Osho-saturated energyfield!

Clearly, this idea is in its first draft, and, equally clearly, I can’t manifest it alone! It can only take off if many people are ready to put their energy into it. From among us we will need people willing to coordinate the project; to provide or help source the funds; to locate/donate a suitable building, or to help in any necessary building and the equipping of it; to take responsibility for the business and administrative aspects, and, of course, the appropriately qualified people wanting to be employed. I see my own role as helping to get the project off the ground, but chiefly training others in the role of ‘Transition Midwife” – that is, learning counselling skills and guiding the dying through the process of leaving the body.”

Osho Upaban, Pokhara, Nepal

A new commune is budding in Pokhara, Nepal. "Osho Upaban" located in the pristine landscape of Pokhara, surrounded mountains, is under construction. Situated on a plateau at the foothills of Mt Machhapucchre, OshoUpavan is an almost triangular island bordered by two mountain rivers and a dense forest. The commune with its abundance of nature is just paradise for nature lovers who want to take a retreat while practicing Osho meditation. Few months ago the constructions works at Upavan were officially inaugurated by Swami Anand Arun and with the hard-work and dedication of Osho sannyasins in Pokhara, the commune today already has two beautiful buildings that can house a hundred participants The construction of 10 residential buildings has already started and is expected to be completed by October. The further construction plan of the commune includes an organic farm, a livestock farm, and a swimming pool with spa and sauna facilities. The commune already has residential facilities and is open for visitors and a few residential guests.

Mike Edwards, (Swami Deva Pramada), of ELO fame dies in Accident

Mike Edwards, AKA Swami Deva Pramada dies at 62 yaers in South Devon, after a huge bale of hay fell on top of his van on September 03, 2010.

A Cellist and a music teacher, he was a founding member of a rock band which sold more than 50 million albums: the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO). He contributed to the albums ELO IIOn the Third DayThe Night The Light Went On (In Long Beach) and Eldorado.

Mike left the band after their fourth studio album  Eldorado was released in 1974  to live at Osho's ashram in Poona and became a sannyasin there, taking the name Deva Premada (Divine Light.)

Mike Edwards was born in 1948 in London. After secondary school he attended the Royal Academy of Music. During the 80s he lived in the Osho Medina commune and in Archway, north London. Subsequently he appeared for three years as a duo with dancer Avis von Herder. In later years, his work involved stage plays, arrangements and cross-genre recordings such as the album Terra Incognita. Always considered a "musician's musician", he was a member of Devon Baroque after moving to Devon, and also of L'Ardito, a baroque trio ('cello, recorder, harpsichord).

Locally, Mike Edwards was probably best known as a founder member of Devon Baroque.
