About Neelakantha Meditation:

Neelakantha Meditation is an exquisite, simple practice for going deep inside to the core of our being. We emerge refreshed, revitalized, and prepared for activity. The practice is natural, working with the nature of the mind and the body so in this way it is an effortless practice, without harsh concentration. Neelakantha Meditation can be practiced anywhere you can sit and close your eyes.

We also learn key concepts for understanding what is happening as we meditate, so that the mind is able to register and value the process.  Neelakantha Meditation is deeply profound, simple and easy to practice, as well as highly practical.  As the power of the body grows, it releases contractions, stress and tension and allows our natural capacities to reveal themselves and operate more fully and freely in our daily activities.

No beliefs, skills or talents are necessary for this exquisite practice to work fully.  Over time with regular practice, Neelakantha Meditation discloses greater access to the sublime vibratory nature of consciousness as freedom and potency at the heart of our own true nature.
