Ma Prem Maneesha was trained in dance and dance therapy in the USA. In 1973 she became a disciple of enlightened mystic Osho, and devoted her life entirely to being in His buddhafield in Pune, India. Sitting with Him, absorbing His presence and teachings, and practicing His meditation techniques transformed her life. Out of this communion with the Master arose a new way, in which she was able to bring her experience with Osho and meditation into the work with dance. She has led groups and taught in Osho Multiversity in Pune, in Europe and in the USA since 1987, and is the director of the Osho Institute for Dancing. She lives in Sedona, Arizona, USA.
