Embodiment Teacher Certification Training

This training includes the main Realization Process practices for embodied nondual awakening, as well as specific embodiment and gentle movement practices for attuning to fundamental consciousness within one’s whole body. These practices cultivate internal unity, balance, fluidity, presence and subtle energy within the body.

As the embodiment of fundamental consciousness, we become both empty and present at the same time.   We know ourselves as the integration of awareness, emotion and physical sensation.  We perceive, understand, touch, move, and express ourselves with the whole breadth of our being.

Participants will learn how to recognize and help people resolve chronic imbalances and tensions in the body that limit embodiment and the realization of fundamental consciousness. The training is also an opportunity to deepen your own embodiment and realization of nondual, fundamental consciousness.

Note: The Realization Process Embodiment Teacher Certification Training will not be offered again until Fall, 2021 online and Spring, 2023 in person.

Format: two five-day modules.  The first module is taught by senior Realization Process teachers in your choice of two locations and the second module is taught by Judith Blackstone in Woodstock, New York.

Embodiment Teacher Training Part One options:

  • With Roma Hammel in Los Altos Hills, California, March 25-29, 2020

Tremper.

Your deposit is refundable, minus a $50 cancellation fee, if you cancel up to two weeks before part one of the training.

Note: The teacher certification trainings are for people who intend to teach the Realization Process or to integrate it into their current professional work.

September, 2020

Empathic Ground Teacher Certification Training

September 18-22, 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

Cost – $750

Realization Process Meditation Teacher Certification Training

Online, via Zoom
With Judith Blackstone

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. Sitting, standing and walking meditations will be taught as well as practices for relaxation, concentration, vitality, and clear, direct perception.  Subtle breath and energy practices will be taught for opening the subtle core of the body and for realizing oneself more completely as the pervasive expanse of fundamental consciousness.  Participants will learn how to perceive and help people overcome individual obstacles to nondual realization, and how to accelerate results in meditation practice for both beginning and advanced practitioners.

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

Format: 12 classes live on Zoom with Judith Blackstone.  Fridays at 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern.  Dates (some may change): October 2, 16, 30, November 20, December 4, 18, February 5, 19, March 5, 19, April 2, 9

Realization Process Series and Ongoing Classes

Consciousness, the Brain and Nonduality Practice

Six Wednesdays: January 29, February 5, 12, 26, March 4, 11, 2020, 1:00-2:30pm Eastern

Online, via Zoom
With Zoran Josipovic, PhD

In this series, Zoran will discuss the latest scientific research on consciousness and contemplative practice, and teach the nondual practices of the Realization Process.  The question of what exactly consciousness is seems to have finally arrived center stage in both science and the humanities, prompted by recent developments in neuroscience, and in the field of AI, which revealed that even the superior problem-solving intelligence of current state-of-the-art computers is not sufficient for consciousness. Within philosophical and spiritual traditions, consciousness has been a topic of centuries-old debates. In particular, the question of whether consciousness, at some level, is the ground of all experience, and even of reality itself, or whether both our experience and reality are without any ground state whatsoever, has led to numerous contentious arguments and misunderstandings. This is especially relevant for today’s practitioners, both those of nondual approaches and those of mindfulness, who are exposed to a smorgasbord of traditional and contemporary perspectives.  Classes will be recorded and available for download.

Cost – $350. For more information and registration: [email protected]
