Ma Ananda Sarita is a world renowned Tantra Teacher and founder of Tantra Essence. She met Osho in India in 1973 and remained in his community for 26 years, receiving much personal guidance from him on the subject of Meditation and Tantra. She has been teaching Tantra and Holistic Healing since 1990.
Sarita is author of two books on Tantra, which are translated into many languages. She teaches a wide range of groups and trainings, including an Empowered Woman’s Training, a 7 level training for couples, The Tantra Teachers Training, The Tantra Meditation Retreat (working with the 112 methods from the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra), and the Mystic Tantra Massage Training. Sarita also teaches maximizing spirituality through sexual pleasure, using Tachyonized Tantra tools.
I’ve always been deeply interested in people. When I first went to university it was to study psychology, I wanted to understand the mind. About halfway through I discovered the active meditations of Osho and I quickly saw that what I was searching for was beyond the understanding of just the mind, I realized that the experience of “being” through the medium of the body was so much more. In 1999 as I graduated with a Honours Degree in Neuroscience I was also becoming a Reiki Master.
Looking back I value the grounded practical approach I learned from studying Neuroscience as well as the cognitive understanding it gave me into patterned behaviour and I’ve now integrated this more intellectual knowledge with the experience of living in embodied awareness. And it is this flavour that I offer in my group and session work. In the time since I’ve traveled to many beautiful places and immersed myself in many teachings – a few of these are listed below: tantra, biodanza, humaniversity, bodywork, satsang.
