Realization Process Embodiment
With Judith Blackstone
The Realization Process is an integrated approach to psychological healing, embodiment, and spiritual awakening. It is a unique series of body-centered meditative practices for realizing spiritual unity, releasing somatically-bound psychological patterns, and awakening the clear light of nondual consciousness in the whole body.
This training teaches the Embodiment aspect of the Realization Process. The emphasis will be on applying the Realization Process attunement practices to developing fluidity, ease, balance and wholeness. When we embody nondual consciousness, we perceive, understand, touch and move with our whole being.
In this practice, we realize nondual consciousness through deep contact with the internal space of the body. In this way, we deepen contact with ourselves as individuals at the same time as we transcend our individuality. We become both empty and present at the same time. We experience both our own body and everything around us as made of the same empty, luminous spaciousness.
A certificate will be awarded at the completion of the course, authorizing you to teach the Embodiment aspect of the Realization Process.
