Professional and academic experience[edit]

Anaya was born on July 25, in São Paulo, Brazil. Even as a child she always said she would be a scholar, a musical artist, and a poet. And so it was that she always studied hard to reach her objectives. She studied piano and guitar, took classes at the Music Conservatory, and studied under several private teachers.

Today, Anaya has undergraduate degrees in Library Science, Drama Arts, Computers, and International Relations. She has a master's degree from the University of Rio de Janeiro, a doctorate degree from Loughborough University of Technology in England, and a post doctorate degree in Information Systems from Syracuse University in the United States. [3]

During her undergraduate studies, Anaya sang and played the guitar on the Braziliann radio and TV, as well as at the Teatro da Paz in Belém, Pará.

Anaya has traveled the world with her guitar, performing not only in the universities where she studied, but also at nightclubs and international hotels.

Anaya currently dedicates herself to creating, producing and communicating her musical work. This includes 39 CDs, 5 musicals, a sound track for Luminance films, 4 videos, 1 songbook, and a DVD. She is a member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences and ASCAP (where she received two Awards), and her CDs are included in the AllMusic website, and are sold mostly on internet sites. Her distribution list reaches national and international scales.

Anaya writes new age music for meditation. She also composes Brazilian popular music.


Anaya's relationship with music began when she was 8 years old. She is the niece of the famous maestro Meneleu Campos, and studied piano under maestro Waldemar Henriques, and music theory and harmony under Wilma Graça. She has had several guitar teachers.[3]

As an opera singer Anaya was closely supervised by maestro Hermelino Castelo Branco, besides having several teachers. She participated in many festivals, performed with Gonzaguinha and Ivan Lins, and is influenced by Tom Jobim and Schubert until today.[3]

Within Anaya's trajectory as an artist we find pop Brazilian trance and ambient new age for relaxation and meditation. The CD Caminhos was the first in this style. After Caminhos Anaya produced several new age and melodic trance-pop style music on CD, VHS and CDRom.

Anaya's contribution to the field of music has been her notable style, arrangements, and interpretation that usher the listeners into a state of profound relaxation.


In the 1980s she moved to Brasília, the capital of Brazil, and began focusing more on managerial and academic activities. During that period she was the director of the Applied Social Studies department at the University of Brasília (UnB).[3]

Anaya dedicated over 30 years to academia and research as a university professor, an international conference speaker, and by developing executive management activities in Brazilian public and private sectors. In Brasília, she implemented a doctorate program and coordinated a post doctorate program, both in Information Systems. She was president of innumerable examination boards for masters and doctorate degree programs, as well as for civil service examinations and professor promotions. She also participated in faculty and career commissions, and served on boards at the university, in local government, and in trade and union associations related to computer science, such as Sucesu (Brazilian Association of Computer and Telecommunication Users) and Assespro (Association of Brazilian Companies for Technology, Software, and Internet). Anaya has published over 70 scientific articles and 10 books, published in Brazil and abroad.[3]

Internationally, Anaya has worked as a specialist in international organizations such as the ILO, UNESCO, FAO, FID, IFLA,among others. She was also senior researcher for CAPES, CNPq (National Counsel of Technological and Scientific Development), and the Ministry of Science and Technology in Brazil, where she also participated in scientific commissions. She was given scientific awards by the Fulbright Commission for her work as a researcher. Anaya has contributed greatly toward the advancement of research regarding leadership that uses an approach based on the theory of consciousness.[3]

Spiritualist and holistic experience[edit]

Anaya has worked for years in healing arts using many types of therapies ranging from those related to the physical body to those related to the more subtle and spiritual aspects of being.

Coming from a family that practiced Kardec Spiritism, Anaya first had contact with the more subtle energies of the Universe through her paternal grandmother, Izabel Romano. While still at a young age, she was introduced to Hinduism and Zen Buddhism, and Yoga, which she practices until today. Later on she dedicated herself to study and research the life and work of Jiddu Krishnamurti, and to esoteric astrology. She studied tarot, I Ching, chromotherapy, aromatherapy, Shiatsu, as well as martial arts, holotropic therapy and the Cabala. She deepened her studies to include alchemy psychology, Temple archeology, the Silva Mind Control Method, and cosmogenesis. She studied anthropogenesis, rays of light, arithmosophy, dowsing, applied kinesiology, Chinese medicine, and Feng Shui, besides delving into quantum physics.[3]

Anaya completed the 3-year Creating Holistic Foundations program at the Holistic University at Unipaz in Brasília.

To enrich her experiences, Anaya made several pilgrimages to be with sages in her country and abroad. She has sat at the feet of the medium Chico Xavier, Sri Sathya Sai Baba, Edelarziu, Thomas Green Northon, professor Jobenil, Efigênia, medium Valentim, Amir Amiden, Trigueirinho, among other spiritual leaders. Anaya also visited historical temples to add depth to her spiritualist experiences.

As a Reiki master, Anaya has trained many therapists over the years, besides having years of experience seeing private clients.

Anaya acted as a consultant in harmonizing residential, business, and personal environments giving emphasis to the millennial art of Feng Shui. She has taught personal training in anti stress workshops and lectures.

Anaya has performed distance healing with her hands, metals, and crystals. She has participated in philosophical groups of thought, done speeches and offered collective therapy. She has developed studies regarding self-knowledge and broadening consciousness. Anaya loves the outdoors, meditating, and discovering the universe.
