Colourfest welcomes Ananta Kranti, Prajna & Mateo.
Meetings in Stillness are Meetings in Truth with Mateo Tabatabai
Mateo is a yogi dedicated to the path of moment-to-moment awakeness. He has studied and explored many modalities of healing and awakening, and has assisted others in the awakening of their inner potential for over a decade. He is also an Engineer and author, and is currently finishing his Masters in Psychology.
His path has been a mixture of deep immersion in life, as well as longer periods of seclusion, including long dark retreats in the mountains of Southern Spain.
The work offered through him includes a mixture of: meditation, enquiry, energy and partner practices, as well as movement and sounding. Kind inclusion of all aspects and dimensions, is a key theme in the offering.
The wisdom, seeing and compassion that manifests through him, is offered in the framework of equality and mutuality.
Some of the benefits that can come from his offering are: deep insights and awakening, unification of the energy centers / sub-minds, deeper alignment and clarity about your purpose, a growing sense of freedom, contentment and inner peace, and last but not least, humor about our situation and seeming predicaments.

The subsequent years were filled with death and rebirth, realizations, and deep dark nights of the soul. Today, everything has changed, and nothing has changed. The process of deepening continues with greater speed than ever, and although there have been many profound realizations, the most important thing seems to be the continuous, moment to moment surrender of everything… Love…
A dedication to the Truth of Being with Prajna Ginty
Prajna’s Journey: In 1986, after the death of her first teacher Eunice Zimmerman, Prajna was introduced to Satsang and Non-dual Wisdom Teachings of Ramana Maharshi, Anandamayi Ma, Nisargadatta Maharaj, Milarepa,… She had an immediate realization of True Self that led to seven years of Nirvikalpa Samadhi (a deep meditative absorption with Consciousness). “I watched my former identity as a separate individual vanish. I saw thought to be unreal—like a cloud passing in a clear sky. What I thought myself to be—was not. I disappeared like space.” In 1994 she gave birth to her first baby at home while enjoying the “homey moon” phase of awakening. Two years later her twins were born three months early with severe complications. After an extended period of unrest she was catapulted to the edge of a dark night that culminated with meeting her root teacher, Adyashanti. Adya clarified the dark night of the soul, as a threshold on the journey of surrendering our personal will to the will of the divine. A deeper transformation continues that includes gratitude for all of life and her children as endearing teachers.
Prajna, an early student of Adyashanti, is professionally trained as a Hakomi—Body Centered Therapist and Counselor. She draws upon three decades of mentoring, and an extra-ordinary life as a mother. On 9/11 she dedicated her life to the Bodhisattva vow and began to teach from her life experience. In 2104, after a break from public teaching, she began touring with her book. She is featured at Buddha at the Gas Pump, Conscious TV, KVMR Radio, Living from Love, One Magazine, and many others. Read about her embodiment journey in Edge of Grace.
Prajna embodies the “wisdom of no escape” and evokes through dialogue, inquiry, and presence the spirit of authenticity, courage, and kind acceptance while inspiring people to unleash core aliveness. Prajna carries a message that vividly charts the universal themes of “seeking” through the most humbling emotional ordeals to heartfelt satisfaction and stability. Her approach elicits a softening of the heart that allows struggle and false identity to relax into direct intrinsic knowing of who we are amidst laughter, tears, messiness, and beauty. As a teacher, therapist, and mother, she is known for her deep compassion and capacity to transmit powerful meditation experiences relevant to everyday life.
Awakening to what you are is the first threshold in spiritual unfoldment: the gateway to a wholly new way of being in life. Activating ‘prajna’ cuts through remaining agitations with existence, bringing your feminine and masculine energies into balance. It actualizes a way of living that is fierce, wise, engaged and deeply fulfilling.
Meeting In Truth With Ananta
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 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. As well as working with people for several years in the healing fields, including various forms of bodywork, assisting others through trauma 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. Part of this amazing story is shared in her notebook hand written while on trial and has been made available as an ebook: No Way Back ~ Dark Night of the Soul “Awaiting Trial” (read a preview and buy the book here).
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 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. This carries over into a unique expression of Divine/Humanness where All is welcome Here.
Ananta currently resides in the UK where she provides private guidance sessions, holds regular meetings, and retreats and she also has an online membership Sangha where she guides Beings from around the globe through regular Satsangs.
Ananta has been interviewed a number of times over the years and these can be viewed here.
In the True meeting of Self to Self,
The Light shines, The Truth speaks,
and the same Truth hears itSelf speak…
