Neelakantha Meditation Initiation

Two-Day Course with Lisa Golden – July 11-12
Plus Ongoing Teleseminars and Support Through Blue Throat Yoga

Typically Neelakantha Meditation is only taught in person; however, due to the current global need to restrict movement and in-person interactions, for a limited time I will be initiating and teaching individuals from a distance. As with traditional initiation, teaching will take place over 2 days and through a formal process which includes a one-on-one component. After the need for social distancing has passed, new initiates should plan to meet with me in person to affirm their practice.


  • Saturday, July 11:
    10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. – Group session: Introduction to the practice
    12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. – Individually scheduled one-on-one sessions; your specific 1 hour long time slot TBD
  • Sunday, July 12:
    10:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.  – Group session: Theory and practice (with lunch break)

Please note: All sessions will be online via Zoom. Live attendance is essential. Sessions will not be recorded.

Cost: $450

Online Chanting and Meditation

For current Neelakantha Meditation practitioners, I am also offering opportunities to chant and meditate together online. Opportunities include group chanting of Śrī Rudram and the Gaṇapaty-Atharva-Śīrṣa-Upaniṣad, with or without additional time for meditation. I will also be offering an opportunity for those wishing to learn or improve their practice of Śrī Rudram.

Please contact me if you would like to be notified of upcoming events!
