We can embody love, joy, and wisdom. On my quest, I’ve taught high school English, practiced Qigong, earned a PhD in Integral Philosophy, studied Asian spiritual literature, and trained intensively with several meditation teachers. As a non-dual embodiment-meditation teacher, I’ve chosen to teach all aspects of the Realization Process — meditation, healing ground, empathic ground, embodiment and movement — because this is a powerfully integrative approach to embodying our true nature.

The Realization Process revolutionized my psychotherapy practice and enlivened my spiritual practices. Ever since my spirited exploration of Self during my early twenties, I knew that psychotherapy and meditation go hand in hand as tools of transformational change. After earning a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Michigan, I incorporated the teaching of meditation into psychodynamic therapy, a specialty in trauma recovery techniques and somatic release.

A spiritual mentor, I recognized long ago that immersion in nature reveals the sacred aliveness of all life. When I first trekked into the wilderness decades ago, I was still entangled in the confusing swirl of my childhood. Fueled by an undeniable call to love my life, I embarked on vision quests into old growth forests. Attuning to the visible and invisible web of life, I discovered a profound stillness, the quiet vibrancy of my true nature. Three decades after awakening, I realized my body is a portal into that sacred aliveness. Read more

The Realization Process allows us to be our own guru of enlightenment. I don’t claim to be enlightened, but I am stable in my awakened embodied experience because of the Realization Process. I provide unwavering support and wise guidance to anyone who wants to use RP to explore and open to the primary attributes of nondual realization: stability, depth (openness), subtlety, transparency, and wholeness.

I joined the Realization Process after decades of experience practicing and teaching several healing modalities. Unlike any other, it is simple, yet deeply transformative. I am originally from Brazil, but I’ve also lived in Japan, New York, and California. This allowed me the opportunity to introduce this practice to hundreds of people across nations with various backgrounds. This experience has given me the precision and expertise to perceive the blocks in my client’s body and help them heal. Read more

Realization Process has revolutionized my psychotherapy practice, and transformed my spiritual path. After 30 years of learning skillful and compassionate therapy techniques, I trained with Judith Blackstone. Judith taught me with exquisite precision how to be in Core to Core contact with my clients, and sit in the information rich ground of being. Without moving away from myself, without leaving my Core, I’ve learned that all I need to know, to feel, or to sense is available in the ground that unifies everything. This process leaves room for all the useful therapy techniques I learned previously, but now they go deeper. Post traumatic Stress becomes Post traumatic Growth. Disentangling into Wholeness reveals the Beauty of being human; extraordinary and ordinary at the same time.Marcia Haarer

Connecticut and New York City
I am a body-oriented psychotherapist, spiritual counselor, consultant in the field of diversity and inclusion, and co-director of the Interspiritual Counseling Program at One Spirit Learning Alliance in NYC. As a fully certified Realization Process practitioner and a student of many paths, including Core Energetics, the Diamond Approach, Somatic Experiencing, Embodied Couples Work and Pranayama Breath Work, I weave a variety of modalities into my work with individuals, couples and groups as specific needs arise. I have been characterized as enthusiastic, humorous, eclectic and loving in my work as a counselor, teacher and minister. I am passionate about helping people create real and sustainable transformation in their lives and in their relationships through deeper contact with the truth of who they are. Cultivating a capacity for greater self-love is often at the heart of it. I am deeply interested in the interplay between psychology and spirituality, between “growing up” and “waking up,” and I strive to embody and teach a psychology infused with spirit and a spirituality grounded in psychological principles.

I help you build a sense of safety, discover resilience and confidence, and let go of self-harming beliefs.

I have run a private practice as a Massage Therapist and Bodyworker in Edinburgh since 1990. I began training as a dancer, until a period of illness turned my attention to my own healing journey and from there to studying Therapeutic Massage, Counselling and Psychotherapy (DTM, DHTC). My focus has been to enable people to come into their bodies, creating space for healing. When I met Judith in 2011 I felt immediately I had found an approach that made sense on every level of my being. I then trained in all three aspects of the Realization Process. The outcomes for my clients and myself have been profound. It has brought greater depth and precision to my Bodywork, and a language that facilitates deep release and integration. I offer private sessions in the Embodiment, Psycho-therapeutic and Meditation aspects of the Realization Process. It is such a privilege to see people becoming more their own person, disentangled from the past. This work is both gentle and profound, it inspires me continuously on my ongoing personal journey and in my support of others. I run twice weekly classes in the Realization Process, with wonderful committed people who teach me as much as I teach them!

Studying with Judith since 2010, I have experienced a deep connection with myself that has wholly transformed my life. I teach the Meditation, Embodiment and Spiritual Psychotherapy aspects of the Realization Process to help people experience their own embodiment as a foundation for resilient engagement with the world around them. I offer private sessions and have been able to help clients experience healing and trauma repair as well as greater internal coherence and the cultivation of Joy.
A client says about my work:
“Sono appeared in my life at just the right moment. She is down-to-earth, kind, good-humored and tranquil. I’ve meditated for 30 years and explored many healing modalities in depth. Sono guided me to a place I’ve never been, where I can connect to the depth of my self with the subtle breath to work internally and also connect my deepest self with the world beyond me in a balanced flow. I’ve seen remarkable changes in just one session. She facilitated my energetic release of a chronically troublesome shoulder. Practicing on my own at the grocery store, I’ve found that I am more present. Practicing while in a group, I have increased comfort and ability singing. I look forward to working with Sono more and integrating this profound work.”

Michael Lydon, LMSW
My approach to counseling and meditation coaching is based on the notion that there are many disparate parts of the mind, which are like aspects of a single family. These parts often feel as if they have a “will of their own,” and healing occurs when each part is integrated with our conscious mind, with an attitude of acceptance. My approach to healing is to “go to where the magic lives.” This involves seeing emotional pain not as something to push away, but rather as the gateway to experiential self-knowledge. I utilize the Realization Process or other embodiment meditation / subtle energy work methods in-session to help facilitate healing and well-being. In using a direct approach, therapeutic insight and nondual realization arise from direct experience vs. conceptual analysis according to any pre-determined framework.

New York City
I have been teaching the Realization Process meditation class in New York City once a week on Mondays from 7-8:15pm for the last seven years. I also use Realization Process indirectly to help my students do T’ai Chi Chih and Qigong.
Lately for me, the biggest insights I have had about Realization Process have come from actually teaching it on a regular basis. The “Space” that I so dutifully would find during my own exploration, is so much more available now that I teach others. At first, I struggled with that impulse to go outside myself. I felt I was stuck, I just wouldn’t budge. Teaching has given me the opportunity to let the Space un-fold. With this, the other people show up more, to me. This was such a huge revelation; and feels evolutionary because I do not have to work so hard.
My active mind can rest and with that comes less projection on my part; so I have more clarity; with that, comes peace.
