The Repose in the Heart
Introduction to Meditation in the Tantric Yoga Tradition
With Elizabeth Doberneck, Friday September 29 6:30-8:00 PM
$22 or a class from your card
Meditation in the Tantric tradition is a process of easefully settling deep inside one’s self, of opening up and illuminating what is not ordinarily available to us in the normal course of every-day life, a most intimate space inside ourselves; a source place of natural and spontaneous knowing, creativity, and healing. During this evening we will explore the beautiful and inspiring teachings of the Tantric Yoga tradition which lay out a technology of consciousness that allows for the systematic access to this source place within. We’ll perform a sequence of gentle practices that permit the natural harmonizing of the body and mind to allow awareness to settle more easily. These practices include gentle pranayama, stretching, japa and meditation and are available to both advanced practitioners and beginners.
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 easily go 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 find 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 is a clear and systematic technique that does not involve forced concentration or control of the mind. Just a few minutes a day reduces stress and fatigue and increases clarity, steadiness and ease of well-being. Formal personal instruction is the basis for a potent and rewarding practice that over time can bring about authentic life transformation toward greater happiness and fulfillment.
This meditation course involves three key elements: 1) Two days of formal personal instruction into the practice of Neelakantha Meditation after which you will be fully equipped with the technique and understanding to practice successfully on your own. 2) An eighteen month program of rich meditation offerings including live tele seminars discussing aspects of meditation practice and experience. 3) Ongoing personal guidance and monthly group meditation practice led by Elizabeth.
