During these times when our world, as we know it, seems to have been turned upside down, the need is greater than ever for a tangible resource for renewal of spirit into our daily lives. We would like to introduce to you a powerful practice of deep meditation that offers an exploration of our true nature that can find its expression in our day to day living.

Awakening to the Heart (Norman and Cynthia Scrimshaw), has been looking forward to hosting a special offering of Neelakantha Meditation Instruction and Initiation with our teacher Mary Gerdes at BodhiHeart Yurt. During this pandemic, we are temporarily unable to schedule it at our location. We are excited to learn that as of April 2020, Neelakantha Meditation Distance Initiation (group and individual instruction in a virtual format) is available for those who are ready to begin this practice. 

For those who receive initiation with Mary Gerdes,
we will be offering a follow-up gathering here at BodhiHeart Yurt with her after the pandemic subsides.


I received initiation last summer, just a few months after experiencing a stroke. It’s been a wonderful and wild ride ever since.

Meditation has been something I Iook forward to, rather than something I do because I should. The quality of my meditation has increased exponentially with consistent practice. 

I feel Neelakantha Meditation has been a powerful source of healing for me, cognitively and physically and I Iove life, even with the challenges from a stroke. I love being able to dip into the ocean of consciousness, which is full of joy, love and light. 

I can reflect this divine energy in my life as a human being.
