In a Mantric Fire Workshop, renowned scholar and teacher Paul Muller-Ortega takes participants on a journey of experiential discovery of the Tantric practices of the Heart. Every Mantric Fire Workshop is fresh and inspiring, full of new insights, thought-provoking considerations, and powerful practices.
The workshop centers on the fundamental principles of Svatantra: the Tantric teaching of the ultimate freedom of Consciousness. Rooted in these ancient teachings, yet applicable to the modern practitioner, these powerful practices are offered to clear away any impediments to full access to, and expression of, Consciousness within.
Encompass a rich array of offerings and experiences applicable to life in the world. Ancient in origin, these practices and teachings open a Universal portal into a more liberative trajectory of life and allow the modern practitioner to gain direct access to the interior, subtle spaces of living Consciousness.
This experiential journey is accessible to everyone, regardless of background or belief. Each Mantric Fire Workshop is unique, and invites you deeply into your own Heart in a rare gathering of profound consideration and learning. You will receive the invitation to be inspired, and consolidate, envision, and gain deeper insight into your spiritual path and entire life.
Specific practices taught may include the Release Practice, the Intention Offering practice, the Amrita Guru practice, Japa or chanting, the study of sacred texts, and other group practices that raise the vibration of our awareness and unfold the possibilities of deeply rooted freedom inside.
Join us for this workshop to pierce into the heart of awakening that is already moving inside each person, inviting us to live in a higher and more evolutionary way!
Cost: $108, $90 Early Bird. Registration opens in March!

The Neelakantha Meditation Initiation Course is a two-day instructional experience that includes learning an elegant, powerful and deeply effective practice for systematically exploring and progressively journeying into the deeper spaces of Consciousness. During the course, Paul offers instruction in the method of Neelakantha Meditation, as well as a very clear, specific understanding of the theoretical context and foundational principles of this powerful practice.
Neelakantha Meditation is easy to learn and practice, and is governed by the principle of effortlessness. It does not involve concentration, controlling the mind, or other forms of effortful manipulation of awareness. It does not require that you have any particular beliefs, any previous study or specific background in order to learn it and practice it with great benefit. For this reason, it is a practice that anyone can learn. Even those who have had difficulty meditating in the past are surprised at how easily and deeply they can meditate after receiving Initiation into Neelakantha Meditation.
Paul Muller-Ortega, Ph.D., is an internationally recognized meditation teacher, and one of the world’s most highly respected academic scholars in the field of Indian Religion and Hindu Tantra. He is the founder of Blue Throat Yoga, which teaches the elegant and highly effective practice of Neelakantha Meditation, now practiced by thousands of students around the globe.
Paul has been a meditation practitioner for over fifty years. He has formally studied with several of the greatest meditation masters of our time, and subsequently has organized and taught hundreds of meditation seminars, disseminating potent practices to thousands of individuals; as well as offering retreats, advanced study courses and a rigorous and profound training program for teachers of Neelakantha Meditation.
