Neelakantha Meditation

Todd Norian leading Savasana

Years ago, I was initiated into the life changing practice of Neelakantha Meditation, as practiced in Blue Throat Yoga, founded by Paul Muller-Ortega.

Neelakantha Meditation is a deeply satisfying, highly effective, and easy-to-learn form of mantra meditation. It is very powerful in supporting you to have a direct experience of the vastness of the universe within yourself. It has the power to dissolve self-limiting beliefs and patterns of doubt, unworthiness, and anxiety. It assists in helping you release what is no longer necessary and old habitual thought patterns that are no longer life-enhancing. Best of all, Neelakantha Meditation is effortless and natural and very easy to learn.

Neelakantha Meditation has enhanced my life and given me the experience of the highest freedom, purest joy, and most satisfying fulfillment possible.

Neelakantha Meditation is based in the same philosophy and tradition as Ashaya Yoga and is the perfect companion to the yoga that I practice and teach students like you.

Day 1 of the initiation experience consists of a group gathering for an introduction to the method and its philosophical underpinnings. This gathering will last about 90 minutes. Following that will be individual initiations, which last about one hour each. You’ll be scheduled in the order that you register. You may stay onsite or leave and come back at your initiation time.

On Day 2, we reconvene as a group for two more hours for review, sharing, additional teachings, and a practice. All initiated Neelakantha meditators, whether from this session or any other previous Neelakantha Initiation, are welcome to take part in the gathering on Day 2 free of charge.

This is an amazing opportunity to head further toward your destiny. Get in touch with your highest, best self with effortlessness and clarity of purpose. If you’ve been searching for a steady daily practice of meditation that brings you home to your heart very quickly and effectively with little or no effort within a supportive environment, then Neelakantha Meditation is the right choice for you.
