Origin is Osha’s home in the High Sierra mountains north of Truckee. Osha has been leading and promoting Enlightenment Intensives, Dyad Meditation Retreats, and Intensive masters training courses over the past 45 years.

Enlightenment Intensives and Dyad Meditation Retreats are opportunities to directly experience the truth of yourself, life, others, and love through a process that combines contemplation and communication. Communication, which clears the mind, is received without judgment or commentary. No doctrine is taught and everyone is welcome.

Osha’s books include Vegetarian Cooking for Health and Pleasure (1991), Decadently Delicious, Recipes to Live for (2019), and Inspirations: Collected Poems and Quotations for the Mind and Heart (2021).
