- A seeker since a young age, Samvara came across a living Master and dropped everything to be with Osho. Samvara enjoyed the extraordinary atmosphere of the Osho commune in Poona, India where she trained as a breathwork therapist. Before leaving the body, Osho asked Samvara to introduce in the commune a 3- month Buddhist silent meditation retreat. Samvara still treasures and honours this wonderful gift from Osho and makes it available in her beautiful place in Brazil.
- Today our guest is Ma Deva Samvara. Samvara took sannyas in 1976 and is a psychologist and holistic therapist. Samvara specialises in breath therapy, rebirthing and meditation retreats.
