Realization Process Meditation Teacher Certification Training

In Person! Two-module format.

(This training will also be taught in the six-month online format, with Judith Blackstone.  It begins on October 6, 2023.  Please scroll down for details.)

In the Realization Process, nondual realization is the uncovering of our primary nature: fundamental consciousness pervading our body and environment as a unity. This training teaches 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. The training includes sitting, standing and walking meditations for opening subtle perception, refining your breath and energy and deepening your innate capacities for love, pleasure and mental clarity.  As fundamental consciousness, we are both empty and present.  We are both whole within our individual being and unified with everyone and everything around us.

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 fundamental consciousness, through intensive practice of the Realization Process meditations.

Empathic Ground Teacher Certification Training

The Relationship Aspect of the Realization Process

With Judith Blackstone

New dates: May 18-22, 2023

In Woodstock, New York – in person!

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.  You must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to attend the training. Proof of vaccinations and booster will be required.

Certification: Realization Process Empathic Ground Teacher

Cost – $850  This does not include lodging.  There are many reasonably priced hotels and airbnbs near the training location.  The training is held in Lake Hill, New York, a ten minute ride from the center of Woodstock. Nearby towns are Woodstock, Bearsville, Lake Hill, Willow, and Mt. Tremper.  Car pools will be arranged to and from the training.  For restaurants, if you will not have a car, it is best to stay in the town of Woodstock.

August 18-21, 2023, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM Eastern with Judith Blackstone

Online, Via Zoom

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: Sixteen three-hour classes.  Six weeks of weekly practice sessions with an assigned partner from within the training group, during July and August (via Zoom), two reports/questions based on your practice sessions to be sent and responded to by Judith Blackstone.

Requirements for Registration: Five hours of experience of the Realization Process practices with Judith Blackstone or a senior Realization Process teacher (not a book or recording). If this is your first Realization Process teacher certification training, one private session with a senior teacher to review the two main practices of the Realization Process (that teacher emails Judith after your session).

Note: This is a professional training.  It is not a format for your own personal healing.

The Main Realization Process Teacher Trainings

Meditation

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. This training includes sitting, standing and walking meditations for opening subtle perception, refining your breath and energy and deepening your innate capacities for love, pleasure and mental clarity.  In the Realization Process, we access and live within the subtle, vertical core of the body and the internal space of the body in order to let go more completely into our primary nature–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.

Certification: Realization Process Meditation Teacher

Schedule: Registration is open now for both the In-person two-module format in Spring, 2023 and the online training that starts in October, 2023.

Embodiment

The main Realization Process practices for embodied nondual awakening, as well as specific embodiment and gentle movement practices for cultivating 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 their embodiment and realization of fundamental consciousness.

Healing Through Embodiment Advanced Training

This training provides subtle Realization Process practices to help correct structural and energetic imbalances in the body, to cultivate internal support, increase mobility and release chronic tension.  The training does not address healing acute or life-threatening illness.

Format: Four days with Judith

Requirements for registration: Full certification in the Realization Process (completion of all three main trainings: Meditation, Embodiment and Healing Ground).

Certification: Realization Process Healing Through Embodiment Teacher

Schedule:  February 11-12; 18-19, 2023

The main training 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.
  3. Online: On Zoom for sixteen three-hour periods (7:00-10:00 PM Eastern time) in summer.  Taught by senior teachers and Judith.

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.  Trainings are for people who are experienced in the Realization Process and wish to teach others.  They are not for learning about the Realization Process.

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.
