Judith Blackstone, Ph.D, in a USABP Spotlight Series Event, presents an afternoon to explore the healing power of fundamental consciousness.
Judith Blackstone will teach the main embodiment practices of the Realization Process and discuss their application to healing from the effects of trauma.
These gentle, precise attunement practices uncover a dimension of subtle, unitive consciousness that we can experience as the basis of both our individual wholeness, and our oneness with our surroundings.
Attunement to this foundational level of embodiment cultivates sensory and emotional resilience, grounding, self-possession, and authenticity. It deepens and refines all of our human capacities--for physical sensation, emotional responsiveness, understanding, and perception. It contributes to healing attachment difficulties by helping us connect intimately with others without loss of inward contact with ourselves. It can also contribute to recovery from addiction by helping people access an internal source of happiness, wholeness and belonging. Judith will also describe how we constrict and fragment ourselves in reaction to trauma, and how the embodiment of unitive consciousness can help us find the exact pathways of these constrictions, and release them.
Main Points of Workshop
1. Inhabiting the body can help heal the effects of trauma.
2. We can experience an undivided, unbreakable ground of consciousness, pervading our body and environment.
3. Inhabiting the body as unitive consciousness provides a sense of authenticity, self-possession, empowerment and self-love.
4. Inhabiting the body as unitive consciousness deepens and frees our ability to think, feel and sense.
5. We react to trauma by binding our body and being through the medium of the fascia.
6. As the subtle undivided ground of our being we can more easily discern and release the trauma-based binding from the body.
7. Knowing ourselves as the undivided, unbreakable ground of our being can help us tolerate the emotions and memories that are released in the process of healing from trauma.
15 minutes: I will introduce the main premises of the Realization Process: our potential to experience a unitive ground of consciousness pervading our body and environment, and the applications of that experience to healing from trauma.
45 minutes: I will teach three of the main Realization Process practices.
15 minutes: I will talk about how we bind ourselves in reaction to trauma and how the Realization Process practices can facilitate recognizing and releasing the binding.

"Just as an open hand is hidden within a fist, our true nature, with its innate capacities for happiness, love, and wisdom, is hidden within our pain and numbness. Just as we can open a fist to reveal a hand, our unbound, unconstructed being can emerge from our pain and breathe again."
―Dr. Judith Blackstone, Trauma and the Unbound Body
