Neelakantha Meditation Initiation

The elegant, daily practice of Neelakantha Meditation is offered through formal instruction (Initiation) by Paul Muller-Ortega and Blue Throat Yoga Authorized Teachers, both in-person as well as virtually online. The Neelakantha Meditation Initiation Course is a two-or-more-day instructional experience that includes learning an elegant, powerful and deeply effective practice for systematically exploring and progressively journeying into the deeper spaces of Consciousness. During the course, you will receive instruction in the method of Neelakantha Meditation, as well as a very clear, specific understanding of the theoretical context and foundational principles of this powerful practice.

"Our practice of Neelakantha Meditation is an ancient, beautiful, sophisticated and deeply refined method by means of which we come to know this transcendental, mysterious, deeply present reality of everything everywhere. The first and most important place we come to know it is within ourselves."

- Paul Muller-Ortega

Neelakantha Meditation is easy to learn and practice, and is governed by the principle of effortlessness. It does not involve concentration, controlling the mind, or other forms of effortful manipulation of awareness. It does not require that you have any particular beliefs, any previous study or specific background in order to learn it and practice it with great benefit. For this reason, it is a practice that anyone can learn. Even those who have had difficulty meditating in the past are surprised at how easily and deeply they can meditate after receiving Initiation into Neelakantha Meditation.
