Meeting In Truth -Afternoon Intensive
Sun, 25 Nov 2018 at 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
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 returning to the UK in 2017.
Searching to find the Truth of herself, Her heart was was deeply called to a Master and she found her way to the Osho commune in Pune, India where she explored meditation, Tantra and Self Awareness groups for more than 10 years.
In 1994, she entered 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 realized.
In the face of extremely limiting conditions... She realized herSelf As THAT which has Always been Free, Full and Enough unto 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....
Ananta's life and work is Now dedicated to the Awakening of Human Consciousness, and 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… after many years of developing in her own unique way, she finds a most easy and simple way of bringing about the Direct Experience of our True Nature 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. This carries over into a unique expression of Divine/Humanness.
