Learn Neelakantha Deep Meditation:
A Foundational Course for a Lifetime of Natural Easeful Meditation
With Elizabeth Doberneck Authorized Neelakantha Meditation Teacher & ERYT 500
Neelakantha Meditation is a profoundly effective practice of deep meditation. Governed by the principle of effortlessness, it allows anyone to ease-fully glide inside to experience deep states of restfulness and to access the source-place of insight, creativity and healing. Many people who have struggled to meditate in the past are delighted to discover how smoothly and deeply they are able to meditate after learning this method. Neelakantha Meditation is simple to learn and practice. Based on the elegant and sophisticated methods of the Tantric Yoga tradition, it does not involve forced concentration or control of the mind. Just a few minutes a day reduces stress and fatigue and increases clarity, steadiness, ease and well-being. Formal personal instruction is the basis for a potent and rewarding practice that over time can bring about genuine life transformation toward greater happiness and fulfillment.
The course begins with two sessions of formal personal instruction after which you will be fully equipped with the technique and understanding to practice on your own. An eighteen month program of rich meditation offerings further supports you in establishing your practice and monthly group meditations led by Elizabeth provide an opportunity for practice in the company of others and in-person guidance.
