"Discovering the feminine way of meditation is the biggest gift you can give to yourself; dance with all that arises and passes."
Raised in the Osho Commune and received his name Swami Deva Rakesh in 1981 by Osho. He kept this name ever since, even after leaving the commune. He traveled throughout India and many times in the Himalaya’s on his journey to self-realization. He is well experienced in Osho meditations, Vipassana, Kriya Yoga, Advaita Vedanta, Buddhist Tantra and Neo-Tantra.
He started his own center Art of Loving in 2007. There he developed Tantric Dance, this is now shared throughout the Netherlands and Belgium for over 10 years by trained teachers and is also sharing this at different festivals worldwide.
For many years he hosted men groups, mixed tantra retreats and since 2017 the Tantra Festival Amsterdam together with his beloved Elfriede. Tantric Dance is a fun and deepening way of self-inquiry.
