The Empathic Ground is the relational healing aspect of the Realization Process. It is a series of attunement practices that can be practiced by two people or by groups of people. The practices deepen and refine contact between people, and enable them to receive and respond to each other with less projection and less fear.
As fundamental consciousness, we find our true boundaries. We experience oneness with other people without being entangled with them, and without losing inward contact with ourselves.
When two people, or a group of people attune to fundamental consciousness together, they experience mutual transparency: a single expanse of consciousness pervading them as a unity. They also experience resonant connection between the essential qualities of their being, such as intelligence, love, and physical sensation. They are able to see and touch each other on a more subtle level, beyond the surface of the body to the being within.
The Empathic Ground practices can help couples heal imbalances in their relationship by revealing and resolving areas of obstruction in their contact with each other. They can also help therapists and other healers “see-feel” the experience of the other person over there, in that person’s body, without running it through their own body. This enhances perception and the ability to allow the spontaneous healing process to unfold.
Since my wife and I have been practicing Realization Process together, we’ve never been happier individually and more joyfully attuned together as life partners and best friends.
