Vishoka Meditation® Course

a practice for the freedom and fulfillment of self-mastery 

Guided by Certified Vishoka Meditation® Teacher, Natalie Backman

October 17th - October 28th, 2022


Imagine a life free from pain and sorrow—infused with joy and tranquility.


The ancient yogis called this state vishoka, and insisted that we all can reach it. The key is a precise set of meditative techniques designed to unite mind and breath, and turn them inward.


Inherit the Wisdom of a Living Tradition

Drawing upon both yoga and tantra Vishoka Meditation® shares the essence of ancient source texts including the Yoga Sutra, Lotus Sutra and Shiva Sutra, and is grounded in the authentic wisdom of ancient, yet living, tradition embodied by luminaries including Buddha, Patanjali, and a long line of Siddha masters.


Vishoka Meditation® is the perfect complement and culminating experience for your existing yoga practice, as well as a powerful stand-alone meditation practice. Invite this practice into your life in a meaningful way and receive greater freedom and fulfillment with each passing day.


Experience Vishoka Meditation®

The heart of Vishoka Meditation® is a technique that is spiritually-grounded, yet highly systematic and experiential. But Vishoka Meditation® is more than technique—it is a living practice supported by a rich body of wisdom, refined over countless generations.
