Ananta grew up in London and left England aged 19 with the strong desire to live as a Free Being. This first expressed itself through travel and lead her to Asia in 1989 where she lived until life circumstances brought her back to UK in 2017.
Searching to find the Truth of herself, Her heart was deeply called to a Master (In those days it was the way of it...) and she found her way to the Osho commune in Pune, India where she explored Meditation, Tantra, Self Awareness groups for Over 12 years. As well as working with people for several years in the healing fields, including various forms of Bodywork, assisting others through trauma resolution in a transformative, meditative way.
In 1994, Life circumstances led her into a two and half year period of silence in a Zen style retreat in Japan (otherwise known as a Japanese prison). It was during this retreat where True Freedom was realised.
Ananta's life and work is Now dedicated to the Awakening of Human Consciousness, and supporting Living Awake in daily life.
Through her own Self-Realization, her main area of focus is Now facilitating, the simple direct recognition of the realization of our True Nature, through all that appears to play in all levels and back to the ordinariness of Life itself.
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 and after many years of developing in her own unique way, she finds a most easy and simple way of bringing about the Direct Experience and the ever deepening embodying of this realisation so uniquely to every Being who comes to her.
Living from this point of clear seeing and deepest knowing, there is the invitation to meet all ‘unfinished business’ in Truth and Freedom. This carries over into a unique expression of Divine/Humanness where All is welcome Here.
Ananta has now completed the mission of 'walking her parents home' and is currently looking for a place to land and settle, and call home where she will continue to water and grow the Living Awake private Community.
At Present, Ananta offers private guidance within containers, and holds regular bi-weekly online meetings for the intimate Living Awake community.
In person Retreats are happening a few times per year and are a unique and powerful opportunity for Deepening in Self realisation, and profound life changing shifts in consciousness.
A few words from Ananta about her incredible journey to freedom.
I would like to share something about my journey as a seeker... so you have a bit of background.
I started consciously seeking in my 20's after realising that what I was looking for was not in this world of constant changing experience.
I was led to the Osho commune in India aged 27, at that point he left his body and I went into a long period of aloneness and silence and entered a 10 Day Silent retreat on Mayayana Buddhism. It was life changing... from then on my spiritual search was conscious. I was in direct experience with 'Godliness'.
Following that I spent several years in Osho Commune, Pune. I started with a 3 day Reiki 1 Intensive and it was magical and opened me to Tantra groups.
Then I entered into Tantra groups, exploring the inner Man/Woman etc. sexuality dynamics.
Then I entered Primal De-conditioning, bringing conscious my childhood wounds and imprints, feelings/dynamics with my parents and waking up to how that plays out in my projections.
Then I went into several Awareness Intensive groups, exploring all the contents of my mind and projections, developing Presence to experience and recognising Free Awareness.
In those groups were my first Satoris.
I had literally thousands of Bodywork sessions in which I worked on the patterning and dynamics playing out through my body and in relationships. Much undoing, reshaping, unraveling took place changing the way i related in the world and in relating.
Bodywork was so powerful in bringing Freedom on all levels I fell in love with the work and knew it was my path as a therapist.
I took many mini tastes of Bodywork trainings.
I travelled to Brazil to take an Intensive course in Divine Healing, this was based in Shitasu yet incorporated many forms of healing primarily bringing awareness to all dynamics and including clearing out my bodymind traumas and opening to Prana in all ways.
Then a 3 year Gap in prison, this was a deep teaching on every level.
Following that, 6 months later I entered a 4 month Bodywork training called Osho Rebalancing which required every level of deep deconditioning, receiving bodywork daily to the point of deep screaming pain and exploring all mental emotional attachments while opening in and As love and pure Awaerness, this training included 'Osho Therapist' where we had to go through deep processes to train to be a therapist, 10 hours per day of deep internal work as well as giving daily sessions.
After that, it was clear to me that my love for this work was much deeper than Bodywork and I began to wake people up through the bodywork on the table.
So, I want to say that in my work now...
I am no longer a therapist, I facilitate Awakening.
Still, all of these tools and life experience is within every interaction I have and the way I work with anybody includes all these levels.
This body is now 57 and lived through a wealth of rich experience. That's what you meet when you come to sit and open up.
It depends what you are ready for...
Just in this moment. With no idea. With no story of any personal life. Feel into your Self directly… As the whole Space and everything that arises in this Space. Not landing anywhere. Not becoming identified with any sensation of good, of bad, of happy or sad. Allow everything in this whole Existence to move through like waves of energy passing through spacious Aware Presence.
Taste the fullness of your Self. Nothing is missing here. There is peace. And let go into That! Into the wholeness. Into peace. Into what you Are. This you can never lose, and This you cannot become. And THIS can welcome everything! All the ups and downs in the world of experience are welcome.
Rest at home in your Self, the search is over.
