Mantric Fire Practices from the Shaiva Tradition encompass a rich array of offerings and experiences applicable to life in the world. Ancient in origin, these practices and teachings open a Universal portal into a more liberative trajectory of life and allow the modern practitioner to gain direct access to the interior, subtle spaces of living Consciousness.

This experiential journey is accessible to everyone, regardless of background or belief. Each Mantric Fire Workshop is unique, and invites you deeply into your own Heart in a rare gathering of profound consideration and learning. Join us to consider sacred truths and learn rich practices in the Tantric tradition.

Specific practices taught may include the Release Practice, the Intention Offering practice, the Amrita Guru practice, Japa or chanting, the study of sacred texts, and other group practices that raise the vibration of our awareness. Join us for this workshop to pierce into the heart of awakening that is already moving inside each person, inviting you to live in a higher and more evolutionary way!

A Foundation for a Lifetime of Deep Meditation Practice

Neelakantha Meditation

A Formal Initiation with Professor Paul Muller-Ortega

Neelakantha Meditation is the practice of deep meditation that works to bring about transformation, healing, and benevolence in your life. It is a daily meditation practice that is governed by the principle of effortlessness, which is easy to learn and practice and is accessible to everyone.

    •    Transform and grow in the direct experience of your own deepest reality and live everything that you are meant to live.

    •    Journey into the deeper spaces of consciousness to more fully access freedom, creativity, ease, clarity, and riches of life itself.

    •    Easy to learn and practice, and is governed by the principle of effortlessness.

    •    A beautiful and elegant practice which does not involve concentration, controlling the mind, or other forms of effortful manipulation of awareness.

    •    It is not necessary to have any particular beliefs, previous study or background in order to learn and practice with great benefit.

Neelakantha Meditation allows you to establish a direct connection to your own deepest reality and reconnect with your innate nature of freedom, creativity, clarity, bliss and everything wonderful in life.

This two-day course is the beginning of a lifetime of practice. You will learn the practice itself and the specific context and foundational principles underlying the practice, which is rooted in SvaTantra - the Tantric teachings of the ultimate freedom of Consciousness.
