With the primary principle of effortlessness, Neelakantha Meditation offers a simple, easeful and entirely approachable means to begin and sustain a regular meditation practice.
As an Acharya (teacher), Julie offers personalized and in-depth instruction into the practice with honor, humility, sweetness, and love. She will offer support and insight from her own study and experiences, and aims to teach you the practice that will then be yours for life. Neelakantha Meditation is a living practice that, from day one, practitioners find available a level of depth, stability, and openness they never knew possible, and an array of increased creativity, clarity, ability to focus on what truly matters in daily life coming online. There really is no downside to learning the practice!
As a seasoned yoga teacher and trainer for over 16 years, Julie’s practices and understanding of yoga expanded exponentially when she began this practice in 2009 and has consistently immersed in study with Paul Muller-Ortega. Julie became an Authorized teacher of Neelakantha Meditation as taught in Blue Throat Yoga in July 2017.
How does Neelakantha Meditation work?
Neelakantha Meditation is easy to practice and learn because it works in harmony with the natural movement of the mind to move toward moreness: more activity, more happiness, more clarity, more joy. Because it works in harmony with the mind there is no need to manipulate our awareness by harsh concentration, or in any way attempt to control the mind. This is an effortless practice that gives us access to a natural current that takes our awareness deep inside.
Once we have learned how to do the practice the traverse inside is effortless to a place of depth, stillness and silence. From this deep space of silence, an incredibly available surge of peace and clarity moves forward into our awareness and can be present throughout our day.
When we practice Neelakantha Meditation we move through subtle states of awareness, going very deep inside ourselves, to move beyond thoughts, feelings, emotions and perception at the surface of life. It is here we experience that place of highest wisdom – our very own consciousness. This daily traverse and immersion transforms our lives so that we begin to experience and function in life with a higher level of creativity, efficiency, intuition and clarity.
What are the benefits of practicing Neelakantha Meditation?
Daily regularity of practice promotes profoundly positive effects on life, and rapidly can shift how life is experienced. A process of refinement occurs to help release deep rooted fears and patterns, and sustain an embodied experience of abundance rather than a fabricated one. Other positive results from steady practice are an increase in clarity, creativity, patience, compassion, gratitude as well an ability to more easily identify and disengage with limiting behavior patterns and simply navigate life challenges more easefully.
How do I learn Neelakantha Meditation?
Offered by an Authorized teacher, Neelakantha Meditation is taught through personal formal instruction, or diksha. We meet twice, for about 2 hours each meeting to learn the practice, practice the practice, and learn the theory of the practice. Learning the practice from Julie offers you additional 18 months of support via Blue Throat Yoga, and sets you up for a life-long, self sufficient practice.
