I’ve done a lot of things but never made much money out of any of it. I was a horse rancher, a graphic designer, a chicken farmer, a magazine columnist, a house cleaner, a paralegal, a publisher’s production editor, a Sufi song-and-dance teacher, an actor-writer-director for the theatre… It’s been a long life and it’s a long list – and that’s just a bit of it.

In terms of accreditation, however, I was trained in both graphic design and existential psychotherapy, and was for years a practising psychotherapist in London, which is where I was born.

Ever since I embarked on the intoxicating “life of total ruin” with the mystic Osho, nothing’s been ordinary. I have lived in the UK, France, Italy and the US, mostly in his community of celebrating misfits, and now spend large chunks of my time in India.
I love theatre, poetry, good food, searching but playful conversation, and the ‘naked’ witnessing life.

My two books are: Encounters with an Inexplicable Man: Stories of Osho as Told by his People (just published in Hindi under the title Ek Avyakhya Purush Ke Saath: Osho Ki Kahaniyan Unke Logon Ki Zubaani) and Dinner with Osho: Two Women’s Intimate Tales on the Path of Meditation, due out later this year. I am currently working on a third, an old diary written under Osho’s direction when I was one of his personal energy mediums.

I am a multipotentialite – a term I happened upon recently. Someone with various talents who doesn’t have a single calling. Maybe it’s just a fancy name for a Jill-Of-All-Trades?

A psychology graduate, I have been a meditator since I was a little girl, having been brought up with both Osho and J. Krishnamurti in my life as well as studying in a Krishnamurti school. Both have had a very strong impact on me and continue to do so. Meditation to me is like breathing – an on-going process.

I have wandered into various roles in life, from being a hairdresser to working in PR. From an entrepreneur, a masseuse, a professional cook, to teaching meditation, running retreats, and now helping publish books as well as writing one myself on Indian women.

In a meditator’s terms, this is also called going with the flow…

I love to dance, read, exercise and cook among other things.

The Americans call it a truck farm. The British, a market garden. Either way, it’s a large sprawling field or two consisting of rows and…

Demolishing the Deck

They started demolishing the wooden dining pier soon after we’d had our first dinner (and our first argument!). We had just arrived in the crushed…
