The Meditation Aspect of the Realization Process

In Spring 2023, from April 17-21  I will teach in person with Christi Bemister Part One of the main Realization Process practices for the Meditation Teacher Certification Training. This training teaches the main Realization Process practices for embodied nondual awakening, and their application to Meditation. 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.

All of the trainings help to cultivate the ability:

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

Uncovering, Empowering, and Rejoicing in the experience of Being Human
  • Six Fridays Fall 2022    Sept 9, 16, 23, skip Sept 3 0, Oct 7,14, 21
  • 3:00-5:00 EST

In these weekly two hour sessions, we will explore the five human Qualities of gender, power, love, voice, and intelligence. Each session will follow a sequence of attuning, journaling, talking, chanting and movement to enhance contact with each Quality.

A participant writes:

For me the sequencing has a powerful effect, especially that it concludes with movement, which feels both right and natural. When moving at the end, I sense an integration happening, a trustworthy completion.

Going through the varied steps while exploring a Quality, something uncontrived emerges. With each Quality, a knowing becomes apparent. What becomes apparent for me is this: these Qualities are an undeniable truth for each human being. No one can rob them from us. Even though inequalities and injustices may obscure the Qualities, they are there, ever present and pure. During the healing session, even if our access to a Quality is brief or fuzzy or incomplete, we can confirm and even rejoice that it is present. I find this to be empowering and stabilizing.
