Biography of Satyaa
Since early childhood Satyaa expressed an intense love for music, art and dance. As a child she was spending hours and hours with singing and listening to music learning lyrics of songs she liked. This led her to the study of piano, classical and modern dance. After finishing a musical high school she studied visual arts (cinema, photography and painting) at the University of Beaux Arts of Geneva.
This love for art, dance and music expanded into a longing to find out more about herself and true Art which has led her into the ashram of Osho in Poona in the year 1989. Following the call of her heart for freedom. Satyaa settled into a completely new life in India, feeling that this was the place she would stay forever. The encounter with Osho opened up another level of depth in all areas: she experienced the Dance without any dancer, Song without any singer. Osho was encouraging to explore the ultimate presence that we are, using all kind of methods and technics; one day while she was dancing doing the Latihan meditation (a meditation where you connect the Divine through dance), she completely dropped into this vast space of emptiness and absolute presence where all activities happen by themselves, all dance happens without any performer.
After Osho had left his body in 1990 she was led “by grace”, as Papaji from Lucknow used to call it, to him. He told her - and that´s exactly what she felt in her heart - that her “previous master has sent you here”. Soon it was clear that this wasn´t just a short visit and she became a long time resident there. Satyaa´s love for music, dance and singing started to burn intensely also in Lucknow, since Papaji started to encourage people to sing and dance in his Satsang. She was often singing for him and the direct contact with this man looking into her eyes while dancing or singing, made it clear that there was only the one song, the one dance, that we all share in the Heart. By Papaji´s grace all art pointed to That, as an expression of Truth and Love.
In Lucknow she met Pari, to whom she soon was to get married by Papaji. They discovered that they also shared a deep love for music and singing - that´s what they have been doing ever since. Soon after this she moved to Corfu, Greece, in 1995, where she has been living with Pari and their daughter Mira, who was born in 2000. Satyaa has been sharing her love for God and Truth in weekly gatherings at the Alexis Zorbas Center which Pari had co-founded in 1991… She started to travel with Pari all over the world leading retreats, chanting seminars and concerts touching many people´s hearts with her Love and Fire for Truth. Currently she is living in Munich, Germany with Pari and Mira. In the summer months she is spending much time in Corfu, Greece.
