What is Initiation?
Initiation is an ancient, time-tested way of passing on very powerful life-changing practices, and the theories behind those practices. Initiation is like a doorway through which a student is invited into the inner sanctum of practice and study of a mystical tradition that offers ways to investigate and uncover the nature of one`s self and Reality. In all cultural traditions there are conventional and initiatory paths of practice and study. Conventional traditions most often represent the religious aspects of a tradition, while the initiatory paths encompass the esoteric paths of the tradition paths which are often nested deep inside the conventional aspect of a tradition.
What is Neelakantha Meditation?
Neelakantha Meditation is an initiatory practice from the ancient, esoteric path of non-dual Shaiva Tantra of the Hindu tradition. This path of deep Tantric meditation and self-investigation has been taught since 2007 by Paul Muller-Ortega. Paul is a world-renowned scholar of Indian Religion and Hindu Tantra, a lifelong meditator and the founder of the Blue Throat Yoga school of meditation.
On July 31 of 2016, I became an Authorized Teacher of the entry level of Neelakantha Meditation. My own path of practice and study with Paul began in 2007. For over a decade this practice has given me access to my own previously untapped potential that I would otherwise have not had access to.
I warmly invite You to take up this practice, and awaken your own untapped potential.
