Meera (Kasue Hashimoto) was born in Ishikawa, Japan.

She studied at the Musashino Art University in Tokyo and from 1970 settled in Toledo, Spain.

In Spain she studied drawing at the Circule de Bellas Artes, Madrid, and Escuela de Arte, Toledo,

where she became a co- founder of the Groupo Tolmo and the Galeria Tolmo.


In 1974 she became a disciple of the Indian mystic Osho and started working also in India and Japan.

In 1979, on Osho´s suggestion, she established together with Geetesh Gibson the Osho Art School

and began leading art workshops all over the world. She developed new methods of creative

expression and started her communities in Amsterdam, Sicily and California.

In Tao’s Center Meera led an annual workshop – Primal Painting – since 2012.


In February 2017 Meera died in a diving accident and continued to the next phase of her journey.
