Teacher Trainings

Nondual 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 and 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.

Certification: Realization Process Meditation Teacher


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.

Certification: Realization Process Embodiment Teacher

Healing Ground (Spiritual Psychotherapy)

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.

Empathic Ground

The main Realization Process practices for embodied nondual awakening as well as specific 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 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.

Certification: Realization Process Empathic Ground Teacher

The trainings are taught in two formats:

  1. One training a year, 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 and requires practice with a partner and brief reports every two weeks, and monthly practice with someone from outside of the training group.
  2. Two five-day modules. Beginning in December, 2018 part one will be taught by senior teachers in Los Altos Hills, California, Portland, Oregon and Ann Arbor, Michigan and part two will be taught by Judith Blackstone in Woodstock, New York. A six-week practice period will be led by senior practitioners between parts one and two.

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.

The main Realization Process practices are taught in all four 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.

For people beginning the trainings after December 1, 2018, full certification is awarded at the completion of all four trainings. For people who began their trainings before that date, three trainings are required for full certification.

For People Beginning the Realization Process Teacher Certification Trainings After December 1, 2018

Four trainings will be required for full certification: Meditation, Healing Ground, Embodiment and Empathic Ground. The trainings can be taken in any order.

The completion of each training awards certification and authorizes you to use that aspect of the Realization Process professionally.

Judith will continue to teach one online training a year, on Zoom.

There will be one in-person training offered each year. Each training will be in two parts. Part one will be taught by senior Realization Process teachers:

  1. Roma Hammel in Los Altos Hills, California (near San Francisco)
  2. Jon Hansen in Portland, Oregon
  3. Marcia Haarer in Ann Arbor, MichiganJudith will teach part two in Woodstock, New York

Certification: Master Realization Process Trauma Therapist

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.
