The Fullness of the Ground: Practices for Embodied Nondual Realization

Four Mondays: September 9, 16, 23, 30 – 1:00-3:00 PM Eastern

With Judith Blackstone

Online, Via Zoom

Judith will teach the practices from her new book for experiencing the wholeness, steadiness, depth, fluidity, subtlety and permeability of nondual realization.  She will teach ways to stabilize in your attunement to fundamental consciousness in your daily life.  As taught in the Realization Process, nondual realization has a profound effect on your senses, your breath, your experience of your own authentic existence, your relationships, and your ability to love.  You mature as an individual as you transcend your individuality to experience oneness with everyone and everything around you.  You are both empty and present, at the same time.

Small group format.  Judith will work individually, in front of the group, with anyone who wants assistance with the practices.  Classes are recorded and available to participants.

Everyone is welcome!

When we uncover fundamental consciousness as the undivided ground of our being, we can also experience the innate qualities of our being within our body. This retreat will focus on healing and deepening your embodiment of the five primary qualities your being: sexuality, power, love, voice and understanding.  We will use the Realization Process meditation, embodiment and trauma release practices, along with movement, sound, self-inquiry and group discussion and support to help heal early wounding and enhance both the feel and the function of each of these qualities.  As fundamental consciousness, we mature as individuals at the same time as we transcend our individuality to experience oneness with everyone and everything around us.  Everyone is welcome!

Awaken into the Wild Heart of Reality: a Deepening Retreat

With Roma Hammel, PhD

Los Altos Hills, California

July 22-26

Do you seek to realize the nonduality of your innate nature? Do you long to feel the utter truth of it throughout your whole body? Weaving Realization Process and Taoist practices with movement, touch, sound, art, dialogue, and nature, we unbind the senses, free the mind, and release subtle fragmentations within our own Being and between us and our environment. Implicit in this extraordinary process is a cosmological kind of wild freedom. Thoughts, sensations, and perceptions occur as a unity. Nourished by nature and nurtured by the kindness of others, our hearts become wild and fierce, our bodies luminous and self-aware, our minds keen and clear. This in-person retreat is For experienced RP meditators who can sustain consciousness of the unified field for 90+ minutes. It is not focused on psychological work but instead on deepening attunement to the unified field of consciousness pervading us as a group.

Being with the Messiness of Transformation

With Fiona Ballmer


Five Fridays, August 23, 30, September 13, 20, 27 – 1.00pm-2.30pm Eastern

Transformation is a natural part of human life. But growth and change can at times feel challenging, messy and disorienting. The same applies – or even more so – to spiritual transformation. As we open up to the path of letting our beingness pervade our human form and of bringing light into the darkness of our wounds, this process of awakening brings deep transformation – phases of openings and phases of great challenge.  In this 5-part course we explore the topic of transformation and deepen into spiritual aspects that support us to welcome the waves of inner and outer change. The course is an invitation to open up to the challenging phases of transformation as a chance to heal and to become more empty to be a vessel for the light. Realization Process based and inspired practices combined with breathing practices, inquiry and discussion.

Information and registration:  Cost: $160
