Special Events with Paul Muller-Ortega

Sausalito, CA – December 2018

Paul Muller-Ortega, my own teacher and a world-renowned meditation teacher and scholar, will be teaching in Sausalito, California this December! I am delighted to host these very special events. The Mantric Fire Workshop is a powerful half-day event filled with practices and teachings from the Shaiva Tantra tradition. That’s followed by a two-day workshop for those who would like to learn Neelakantha Meditation.

Learn Neelakantha Meditation

I’ll be teaching Neelakantha Meditation here in Berkeley in October. After that, I’ll be focused on preparing for Paul’s visit in December. I’ll resume local teaching again in the new year. If you do learn the practice of Neelakantha Meditation from me this fall, you will also be invited to attend “Day 2” of the December weekend with Paul at no charge.

Accessibility considerations:

  • Our standard venue is not wheelchair accessible. There are three steps going into the building.
  • One cat lives in this space. The space is typically OK for people with mild allergies. It is cleaned frequently, and an air filtration system is in place. If you have more severe allergies, please indicate this on your registration form.

If either of these considerations is problematic for you, we will work to obtain a different venue in Berkeley on the planned event weekend. If it is not possible for us to relocate on the planned weekend, we will work with you to schedule a mutually agreeable time when you can learn the practice of Neelakantha Meditation at an alternate location that meets your needs.

If you have other accessibility concerns, please contact me!


Our standard venue is a 10-minute walk from North Berkeley BART, not far from the intersection of University Avenue and Acton Street. You will receive the exact address after registering.

Meditation Gatherings

Please join us for our monthly Neelakantha Meditation gathering in Berkeley. We are also organizing additional gatherings in the San Francisco Bay Area.

If you are currently a Neelakantha Meditation practitioner and would be interested in attending, please contact me!

Retreats and Courses

Blue Throat Yoga offers numerous events for practitioners of Neelakantha Meditation, including meditation retreats and courses of study.
