Upcoming Workshops and Trainings

January, 2019

Realization Process One-Day Workshop

With Roma Hammel, Senior RP Teacher

Saturday, January 12, 2019, 10:00 AM-4:15 PM Pacific

Los Altos Hills, California

The Realization Process offers a transformative path that is both nourishing and life-affirming. As we make deep contact with the inner space of the body, we open into a wondrous aliveness. Releasing bound energies of past anger, grief, and fear, we reclaim space to live joyously. Deepening into a pervasive spaciousness and stillness, we uncover dimensions of our consciousness that have never been injured. Tenderly embracing our intimacy with all living things, we relate authentically, with love. You’re warmly invited to join me at my home in Los Altos Hills, CA, for this one-day workshop focusing on foundational Realization Process meditation practices for awakening into a fully-embodied life. 

Cost – $225

In Depth with the Ground of Being

With Candace Cave, Senior RP Teacher

Saturday, January 19, 2019, 10:00 AM-1:00 PM Pacific, Online via Zoom

Foundational Grounding Workshop – Appropriate for experienced RP Practitioners

The Realization Process Foundational Grounding exercises were newly introduced during the Meditation Tele-Training 2017-2018. The practices are proving extraordinarily useful to all levels of RP practitioners.  Foundational Grounding supports us to settle our interior experience with more discernment, guides us to define the boundaries of our body from the inside, provides a place to rest our physical, emotional and mental life, helps us settles as we make room to receive the upward moving current through our core, gives us places of support as we balance our awareness, is a direct access to the spaciousness of fundamental consciousness, and more.  Fascinated with these profound exercises, Candace has explored them with 100s of RP students since their introduction. Join us for an in-depth exploration of the RP practices of Foundational Grounding.

Cost – $50

Cost – $730 for each part ($530 if you are repeating the Realization Process Meditation Training)

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, subtle perception and the deepening of our innate capacities for love and mental clarity.  Absorption and 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.

A certificate is awarded at the completion of part two of the training, authorizing you to teach the Meditation aspect of the Realization Process.  The Realization Process Meditation Teacher Certification Training will not be offered again until Fall, 2020 online and Spring, 2022 in person.

September, 2019

Stillness Moving Teacher Certification Training

September 20-24, 2019

Woodstock, New York
With Judith Blackstone

This training teaches the Realization Process movement practices. These practices help open us to the clear light of fundamental consciousness in our whole body.  They cultivate fluidity, balance, vitality and expressiveness.  As the embodiment of fundamental consciousness we move with our whole being.  We become both empty and present, at the same time.

This training is for people who plan to teach Realization Process Movement.

The movement exercises are gentle and appropriate for anyone, regardless of age, movement experience or agility.  However, they can be very effective for dancers to enhance their technical and expressive ability, and for athletes to achieve greater ease of movement.

Certification: Realization Process Stillness Moving Teacher

Cost – $750

You must have certification in at least one aspect of the Realization Process (Embodiment, Meditation or Healing Ground) in order to attend the Stillness Moving Teacher Certification Training. This short training does not count toward full certification in the Realization Process.

Please contact us or complete this form Stillness.Moving_Application and email it to us at [email protected]


October, 2019

Healing Ground Online Teacher Certification Training

October 4, 2019 – April 17, 2020
With Judith Blackstone

This training teaches the main Realization Process practices for embodied nondual awakening, and their application to personal maturity and psychological healing. Specific practices are taught for listening and responding to another person as fundamental consciousness, for subtle reading of constrictions and openness in one’s own and another person’s body, and for recognizing and releasing emotional wounds and trauma-based constrictions from the body.  The Realization Process practices can help people access a dimension of themselves that has never been injured, that is deeper and more subtle than even the most strongly held negative beliefs, depression and anxiety.  They also develop sensory and emotional resilience, grounding, self-possession, and self-acceptance.  They can help sensitive people live more comfortably in the world.

Certification: Realization Process Healing Ground Teacher

Cost – $1350 ($950 if you have previously taken the Realization Process Spiritual Psychotherapy Training)

Format: 12 classes live on Zoom with Judith.  Fridays at 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern.  Dates (some may change): October 4, 25, November 1, 22, December 6, 20, 2019, February 7, 21, March 6, 20, April 3, 17, 2020.
