Join Catherine Stewart for a two day initiation process of Neelakantha Meditation.
How Does Neelakantha Meditation Work?
Neelakantha Meditation is a simple, elegant and sophisticated yet easy to learn practice of meditation. It is a daily seated, closed-eyed meditation practice. This practice does not require that you have specific beliefs or previous experience.In fact, anyone can practice Neelakantha Meditation with great success! It simply requires that you learn how to do it properly in a series of personal meetings with an Authorized Teacher.
Neelakantha Meditation works in harmony with the natural movement of the mind to move towards more: more activity, more happiness, more clarity, more fulfillment. Because it works in harmony with the mind there is no need to manipulate our awareness in any way whether by harsh concentration or attempting to control the mind. This is an effortless practice that gives us access to a natural current that takes our awareness deep inside ourselves.
Once we have learned how to do the practice we traverse effortlessly inside ourselves into a place of depth and silence. From this deep space of silence, peace and clarity surges forward in our awareness and is present with us throughout our day.
What are the benefits to practicing Neelakantha Meditation?
Over the years that I have been practicing Neelakantha Meditation on a daily basis, I have experienced its profoundly positive effect on my life. It sets in motion a continuous process of refinement of the way that I see myself and of the way that I see my world.
Neelakantha Meditation very rapidly shifts our experience of our lives This practice has helped me to quickly release deep rooted fears and patterns. I am experiencing greater fulfillment in my life and have felt an abundance of the following benefits as a result of my practice:
compassion towards myself and others
ability to more easily identify and disengage with limiting patterns
ability to easefully navigate challenging interpersonal situations
able to handle stressful situations with greater confidence
There is not one aspect of my life that has not been deeply impacted by my practice. Through the regularity of my own daily practice of Neelakantha Meditation, my life has shifted and transformed in ways that have brought greater clarity and peace in my life. As I studied to become a Teacher of this practice, I learned that the practice brings great order and coherence to life. That’s because when we practice Neelakantha Meditation we traverse the subtle states of awareness going very deep inside ourselves where our awareness moves beyond thoughts, feelings, emotions and perception at the surface of life and we experience that place of highest wisdom – our very own consciousness. This daily traverse transforms our lives so that we begin to experience life and function in life with a higher level of creativity, efficiency, intuition and clarity. Who doesn’t want that?!
How Do I Learn Neelakantha Meditation?
You can learn Neelakantha Meditation by way of formal personal meditation instruction. We will meet for two separate sessions and here is why:
Day 1: This is when you will receive detailed instructions about how to do the practice. Plan for two hours for Day 1.
Day 2: This is when you will be given the theory of the practice. Plan for 3-4 hours for the Day 2 explanation. This explanation about awareness and consciousness:
What is awareness?
How does our awareness move inward?
Why does our awareness move?
What happens when our awareness moves?
How does this movement affect us at the surface of life?
When you complete this two-day course you will leave with the practice and knowledge to establish a self-sufficient practice for a lifetime. But there is also support along the way!!!
What is included in the course?
The knowledge and support offered to you is endless and vast. Your course includes formal personal meditation instruction over a period of two days, encouragement and support from me in the form of group meditations and invitations to future Day 2 explanations on the theory of the practice to refresh and renew your understanding of Neelakantha Meditation. I also offer other opportunities to dive deeper into the foundational principles that inform the practice of Neelakantha meditation.
You also receive support from Blue Throat Yoga as Paul is also committed to providing support to you on your journey into great knowledge and experience into the depths of your very own Self.
