Ma Deva Anando
(A. Heffley, aka Susan Heffley, Sue Appleton)
Anando was born in Melbourne, Australia. She is the founder of the international personal discovery organisation, Lifetrainings, which is devoted to helping people realise their hidden potential and resources. Its courses show people how to bring more awareness into their lives, and how to start enjoying life to its fullest.
Anando started her professional career as an actress at the age of 12 and later she studied modern dance at Martha Graham's London School of Contemporary Dance. With a complete change in career, she studied law in Melbourne, Australia, and was admitted to practice as an attorney in both Australia and the USA. In the early seventies, she joined UK publishers, Haymarket, where she became assistant publisher of Management Today, Marketing and Accountancy Age. In 1975 she decided that there really must be more to life than this, and left to explore an entirely different world.
Inevitably, her travels led her to India, where she studied the ancient art of meditation together with cutting edge psychotherapy. This was the beginning of an adventure of almost 30 years living and learning with Osho. She has been a sannyasin since 1975, and considers herself incredibly fortunate to have lived and worked personally with Osho from 1976 til he left his body (personal secretary and one of his caretakers from 1986).
Now based in Europe, she travels around the world teaching and lecturing. She has also created an 8-week meditation e-course, called Easy Meditations for Everyday Life.
