meet Dr Neelam Taneja


   Primordial Sound Meditation Instructor

Every client has unique reasons for wanting to learn meditation. I spend a great deal of my time in the first consultation discussing and understanding your needs, desires, goals and life style. I then translate these into a customised programme that has meditation at its core and includes appropriate fulfilling discussions and activities designed to meet your requirements. It is very important to me that after the equivalent of two days you spend with me, you return to your life deeply inspired to continue your transformation.

The core element of the programme includes guidelines for meditators’ and comprehensive supplementary notes, on meditation explaining background of the practice, the benefits of meditation to you and answers to key questions. You then receive a confidential, one on one instruction in meditation practice, which includes your personal mantra.

Examples of the other aspects of the programme include helping clients with one or more of the following:

· Inner healing for people with long term or terminal illness.

· Helping people whose partners have Cancer/terminal or long-term illness.

· Inner peace for people experiencing bereavement, separation or relationship difficulties. · Inner calm for people leading highly stressed lives.

· Improving business performance, leadership, and productivity.

· Improving school/university performance of students.

· Improving health through changing to more appropriate diet.

· Enhancing an understanding of the concepts of Vedanta, Indian philosophy and Yoga Sutras for people who are interested in developing a deeper understanding of these subjects. These are explained simply with lots of examples and in the context of classical western philosophical thought.

· Perspectives on the search for a meaning of life. A discussion on any of the above or other relevant topics suggested by the clients can be incorporated in the programme with practical solutions and meditation techniques. All the discussions and tutorials are designed to enhance the meditation practice and make it relevant to you.

All programmes include carefully selected music, ayurvedic meals and contemporary afternoon teas designed and created by an internationally published cookery writer. Meditation instruction is provided in tranquil and comfortable surroundings.
In addition, the centre offers a range of complementary therapies and massages such as aroma stone therapy, reflexology and various body wraps, facials and nail treatments administered by experienced and accredited therapists.

There are optional guided walks in the surrounding beautiful countryside. Popular trails include a literary walk to the house of George Bernard Shaw, a walk around the gardens and house of the renowned sculptor Henry Moore or a gentle walk in the nearby Chiltern Hills in an area of outstanding natural beauty. These walks provide ideal opportunities for further discussions and deepening of one’s practice.
