This Spotlight Series Event is brought to you in partnership with Official USABP Educator The Realization Process. 

Event Description:

Judith will teach the main attunement practices of the Realization Process for deeply inhabiting one’s body and uncovering an undivided fundamental dimension of consciousness pervading one’s body and environment as a unity.  She will also teach an innovative release technique for recognizing and releasing trauma-based constrictions from the body. The release of these patterns heals chronic fragmentations within our own being and between ourselves and other people. 

Pervading our body, fundamental consciousness is experienced as the basis of our individual wholeness and our ability to feel more alive, present and comfortable within our body.  Pervading our body and environment as a unity, it is the basis of an experience of oneness, of deep contact and intimacy, with the world around us.  Uncovering this undivided consciousness within ourselves can help us gain increased resilience, perspective and authenticity.  It can deepen our primary human capacities for love, pleasure and understanding.

This event will include our special Overtime! 
Overtime allows attendees to continue to ask questions and invite conversation on the event material, other related inquiries, or cases after the formal event ends. 

Participants will learn:

  • An effective mind/body integrative process for helping people deepen contact with themselves and others. 
  • An innovative technique for releasing trauma-based patterns of constriction from the body.
  • A somatic approach to helping people regain and deepen their capacities for emotional responsiveness, pleasure, understanding, agency and communication.
  • A way to uncover a subtle, unified dimension of consciousness, as the basis of both one’s individual wholeness and self-other oneness.

About the Spotlight Organization

The Realization Process is a somatic approach to psychological healing, relational healing, and nondual spiritual realization. It is a series of practices for attuning to foundational consciousness pervading our body and environment as a unity. These practices cultivate an experience of internal cohesion, authenticity, increased vitality, and the integration of cognition, emotion and physical sensation. Combined with verbal dialogue, specific Realization Process practices apply foundational consciousness to the release of somatically bound protective patterns that were formed in response to early traumatic relationships. Teacher certification trainings focus on the embodiment, nondual meditation and psychological healing aspects of the Realization Process. Advanced certification training focuses on recovery from trauma. READ MORE
