Healing Ground Teacher Certification Training

The Spiritual Psychotherapy Aspect of the Realization Process

This training is moving online! It will still be taught in two five-day modules with eight weeks of required practice between parts one and two. Registration is now open.

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.

Format: The training is taught in two five-day parts.  For part one, you have a choice between the senior Realization Process teachers listed below.  The second part is taught by Judith Blackstone.  All modules are five days long: three days, then a day off, and then two more days. The senior teachers will also schedule optional peer discussion/practice groups. You are required to do eight practice sessions between parts one and two of the training, with a partner assigned to you from within the group, and to email four brief reports or questions based on your practice sessions to Judith.  She will respond to them.  You will also need to submit a twenty-minute video on Zoom, in gallery view, within two weeks of completing Part Two of the training, of you teaching the Realization Process release technique to your partner.  You will receive feedback on your work from Judith or one of the senior teachers. Registration is limited to thirty-six people.

All classes are recorded, but you are required to attend in person.

Empathic Ground Teacher Certification Training

With Judith Blackstone

In Woodstock, New York

May 7-11, 2021 – a decision will be made on January 1 as to whether we can hold this in-person training.

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

Embodiment Teacher Online Certification Training

October 8, 2021 – April 15, 2022

Registration is open now.

Online, via Zoom
With Judith Blackstone

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.

To register, download the application: Embodiment.Online.21.22, fill it out, and email it to realizatio[email protected]. If your application is accepted, you will receive an invoice, via PayPal, to pay the tuition.

Format: 12 classes live on Zoom with Judith Blackstone.  Fridays at 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern. October 8, 22, November 12, 19, December 3, 17, 2021; February 4, 18, March 4, 18, April 1, 15, 2022

Weekly practice with a partner assigned from within the training group. Monthly practice with someone from outside of the training group. Optional meetings with Practice Cohort. Eleven brief written reports/questions responded to by Judith via email.

Requirement for registration:  You must experience the Realization Process practices in a class, workshop, or private sessions with Judith or a certified Realization Process teacher before registering for the training.  Please check the Schedule of Events page of the website for Realization Process classes and workshops.

Certification: Realization Process Embodiment Teacher

Cost – $1400 ($1000 if you are repeating the Realization Process Embodiment Teacher Certification 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.  (Exceptions may be made for long-time RP students and people who have taken previous RP certification trainings.)

The trainings are taught in two formats:

  1. Online: On Zoom for a six-month period from October-April with a break in mid-December to February 1. This training consists of twelve classes on Zoom with Judith Blackstone and requires weekly practice with a partner assigned from within the training group, brief reports every two weeks, and monthly practice with someone from outside of the training group.  One online training with Judith is offered every year.
  2. In person: Two five-day modules.  Part One is taught by senior teachers in Los Altos Hills, California, Portland, Oregon and Ann Arbor, Michigan and part two is taught by Judith Blackstone in Woodstock, New York. One in person training is offered every year.

Each of the trainings prepares and authorizes you to teach that aspect of the Realization Process. A certificate is awarded at the completion of each training.  Full certification is awarded at the completion of all three trainings: Meditation, Healing Ground and Embodiment.  The trainings may be taken in any order.

The main Realization Process practices are taught in all three trainings, along with specific practices that focus on the theme of that training.

All of the trainings help to cultivate the ability:

  1. To “see-feel” within the body of another person without losing inward contact with oneself.
  2. To recognize holding patterns that obstruct embodiment, personal maturity, relationships and nondual awakening.
  3. To receive another person in the clear space of fundamental consciousness with acceptance and compassion.

After practicing as a psychotherapist for more than 30 years, I have attended many psychotherapy trainings and meditation workshops. Judith’s Realization Process got my immediate attention as a radical game changing experience after my first training day. Not only did Judith’s exquisite teaching deliver in creating an accessible inner and outer space in the workshop setting, but her elegantly simple instructions made it possible to recreate the experience at home in my personal and professional life. The concept that we can access the most subtle level of consciousness within ourselves is not new. But the Realization Process method showed me that by going into my body, becoming embodied, I become more spacious, conscious, more myself. Rather than transcending the body, Judith taught me to find space within myself, within my physical, mental and emotional holding patterns. Her method teaches how to release these patterns to the space itself. That is radical. As a psychotherapist, I feel empowered to teach people how to let the space do the listening, seeing and healing.
