Ep 08 | Nobody wants to talk

The publishing of “Soli” drew attention and got noticed by the sannyasin community. Some former Osho’s kids came forward with their stories.
We realized that we missed one last chapter, a tribute to those who decided to forget.
At the center of this episode, Maroesja Perizonius, a Dutch director who in 2004 shot a documentary on her story as “Child of the commune”.
Maroesja goes through her memories as sannyasin child, separated from her mother and living in different communes, alone.
When she started to search for answers, she realized that nobody – including her mother – wanted to be accountable for how their choices affected Maroesja’s life.

Soli is one of the first International productions by Italian podcast platform storielibere.fm.
Soli brings to the audience the true stories of “Osho’s children”, who in the late 70s and early 80s were brought by their parents to live in the controversial guru’s communes. We hear their memories and voices, discovering the mixed feelings they have now, as adults, towards their childhood journey: the awareness of freedom and unconventionalism, of being part of a special world, but also the confusion, the premature sexual experiences they were exposed to and the loneliness they all felt. They tell how they came to terms with something that deeply affected them, when their parents, suddenly, decided to leave everything and put them in common, at all levels. The International version of Soli has been translated by Edoardo Rialti, the official Italian translator of G.R.R. Martin. The International voice of Roberta Lippi is Cecilia Gragnani.
