Paul Muller Ortega

This is a powerful mantric meditation technique, skillfully and compassionately taught by Paul and his teachers.  Highly recommended for those looking for a Tantric meditation practice


Hareesh Christopher Wallis

Sanskrit Scholar and Teacher

Author of The Tantra Illuminated: The Philosophy, History, and Practice of a Timeless Tradition and The Recognition Sutras: Illuminating a 1,000-year-old Spiritual Masterpiece, Hareesh has made these ancient texts approachable and useful.  These are core texts for The New Dharma and have a profound influence on all of Kat’s current teaching and research. Hareesh also has a large library of free classes available on YouTube.
