With Frank Wieland

19 September, 2020

In Heidelberg/Mannheim, 68526 Ladenburg, Germany

This training includes the main Realization Process practices for embodied nondual awakening, as well as specific practices for cultivating the subtlety, openness, luminosity and steadiness of nondual realization.

The training is also an opportunity to deepen your own realization of nondual, fundamental consciousness, through intensive practice of the Realization Process meditations.

May, 2021

Empathic Ground Teacher Certification Training

May 7-11, 2021 (postponed from September, 2020)

10:00-4:15 on Friday-Monday; 9:00-noon on Tuesday

Woodstock, New York
With Judith Blackstone

This training teaches the Realization Process practices for helping couples attune to each other as fundamental consciousness, and for facilitating mutual attunement in groups of people.  Participants will learn how to recognize and help people release limitations in their contact with other people, to balance separation and intimacy in their relationships, and to help resolve the fears that emerge in relationships and in groups.

When two people, or a group of people, attune to fundamental consciousness together, they experience that they are made of the same expanse of consciousness pervading their own body and the bodies of other people at the same time.  This is the basis of our true boundaries.  We can experience deep contact with other people, without losing inward contact with ourselves.  The mutual attunement to fundamental consciousness also helps people relate more authentically, with less projection, and with the love, empathy and compassion that emerge spontaneously when we realize nonduality.

Format: Five days with Judith in Woodstock, NY.

Requirements for registration: Certification in at least one aspect of the Realization Process (Embodiment, Meditation or Healing Ground).  This short training does not count toward full certification.

Certification: Realization Process Empathic Ground Teacher

Embodying our Essence

With Roma Hammel and Maja Apolonia Rode

Online, Via Zoom

Last Sunday of the Month: September, 2020 – May, 2021, noon-1:00 PM Pacific

Embodying our spiritual essence is healing and harmonizing for us, others, and this Earth. Sensed in our body as a subtle conscious substance, Essence (fundamental consciousness) is clear and palpable, such that we directly experience our own existence, our Self, our Being, our Beingness. We know. And we know that we know. We have value. We belong. We have self-worth.  Weaving original poetry, songs, and zither music with Realization Process meditations, Maja Apolonia Rodé and Roma Hammel call heartful mystics and meditators to join us in illuminating shimmering depths in being human. Sensing Essence deepens our capacity to know, feel, perceive, and respond with our whole body. Embodying Essence transforms the deepest levels of our being such that we experience ourselves immersed in life in a spontaneous and vivid way.
