Guru resorts and fake islands

During the 1970s and 1980s Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and later taking the name Osho, was an Indian spiritual teacher, seen as a rich man’s guru and also known to be a Rolls Royce driver. Osho is now a brand that has a magazine and meditation resort. The resort brings together mental and physical wellbeing packages under one roof by combining mudpacks with meditation temples. This is a real place for real people where real money is exchanged, but is the process of well-being and development about yourself still up to you to interpret, is it fictitious?

Another superfiction (see earlier post) is Janice Kabels’ Bird Island. A fictitious art work with a website describing the island and the birds of paradise that do not exist but have been imagined and created on paper. Its fictitious but does that matter?
