Ananta grew up in London and left England aged 19, with the desire to live as a Free Being. This first expressed itself through travel and lead her to Asia in 1989 where she has lived ever since.
Searching to find the Truth of herself, she found her way to the Osho commune in Pune, India where she explored meditation and Self Awareness groups for more than 10 years, also working with people for several years in the healing fields.
In 1994, she entered a two and half year period of silence in a Zen style retreat in Japan (also known as a prision!). It was during this retreat where True Freedom was realized.
THAT which has Always been Free, Full and Enough unto ItSelf!
The Peace that is the ground of all experience. The Love that does not need an experience of Love. The happiness that is our True Nature without needing an experience of happiness… revealed ItSelf to ItSelf.
Coming back into ‘the world’ in 1997, there followed a period of confusion as personality and drama began to reappear causing the search to go on.
In 2000 she then found her way to Intensive Satsang with Dolano in Pune, where the confusion was cleared and no way to turn back from the clear recognition of ‘Who Am I’. This naturally started the unfolding of the integration process where all personality issues come home in Truth. Where bound up life energy, held by beliefs and illusions, reappear to be met in the light, where transformation happens.
This is an ongoing moment to moment process that never stops evolving and is always fresh and New.
Ananta's life and work is dedicated to the Awakening of Human Consciousness, and through her own Self-Realization, her main area of focus is Now facilitating, the simple direct sharing of the realization of our True Nature, through all that appears to play in the ordinariness of life itself.
Since 2004, meetings and retreats are happening around the world in the form of ‘Meetings in Truth’ a Deepening in Self Realization, where the illusion of separation is blown, and the meeting of the same Self is left as a sharing between friends.
Ananta’s way of sharing includes Direct Self Inquiry, similar to the investigation of ‘Who Am I’ passed down from Ramana Maharshi. Yet it has now taken on a definite ‘Ananta’ flavour… after many years of developing her own unique way, she finds a most easy and simple way of bringing about the Direct Experience of our True Nature.
From this point of clear seeing, there is the invitation to meet all ‘unfinished business’ carried over in the unique life of each expression of Humanity!
