The Realization Process is a direct path to embodied nondual awakening.
In the Realization Process, the radical openness of nondual realization is based on deep contact with the internal space of one's body. In this way, we discover an authentic, quality-rich experience of our individual being at the same time as we transcend our individuality. We realize ourselves as fundamental, unified consciousness, pervading our own form and our environment as a whole.
The Realization Process also includes a unique embodied approach to psychological and relational healing by applying fundamental consciousness to the release of psychological holding patterns.
Meditation Practices for Nondual Realization
The Realization Process is a series of meditative practices for realizing oneself as fundamental consciousness. Fundamental consciousness is the unconstructed, unified ground of our being. It appears spontaneously as we deepen and refine our contact with ourselves. It is experienced (or experiences itself) as luminous transparency and stillness. All of the movement of life--our thoughts, emotions, sensations and perceptions--flow through the stillness of fundamental consciousness without altering it.
The Realization Process practices attune directly to the pervasive spaciousness of fundamental consciousness and to the subtle channel that runs through the vertical core of the body. They prepare you to let go of your habitual grip on yourself throughout your whole body and being, so that fundamental consciousness can spontaneously emerge and stabilize.
The practices also open the chakras, cultivate internal depth, bliss, and clarity, and refine the breath and the senses so that you can see, hear and touch on a more subtle level. They deepen and stabilize nondual realization for both beginning and advanced practitioners.

The Spiritual Psychotherapy aspect of the Realization Process applies fundamental consciousness to releasing psychologically based holding patterns from the body. The main Realization Process practices are combined with verbal process and specific attunement practices for recognizing and releasing the subtle holding patterns that constrict the body, energy and mind. The release of these patterns facilitates and expands the realization of fundamental consciousness. It also frees, deepens and integrates all of our human capacities, so that we can know, feel, sense, perceive and act with our whole being.
The fundamental ground of our being has never been injured. As we attune to it, we become free of depression, anxiety, bitterness and confusion. We also develop compassion for ourselves and others and increase our capacity for pleasure.

Embodiment and Movement
The Embodiment aspect of the Realization Process combines the main Realization Process practices with subtle movement practices for cultivating the luminous transparency of fundamental consciousness throughout the whole body. These practices teach you how to bring the stillness of fundamental consciousness into movement. They also open the body's subtle energy channels, integrate the mind, breath and body, and develop the essential qualities of being, such as love, awareness, power and sexuality. They develop fluidity, expressiveness, vitality and health. For nondual realization to be an actual transformation of our being, rather than just a change in our beliefs, it requires an awakening of fundamental consciousness in the whole body.

The Realization Process includes practices for relating with other people in the unified, pervasive space of fundamental consciousness. These practices teach you how to remain in your own body as you experience oneness with other people, how to relate with other people from the subtle core of the body and how to develop the relational capacities of awareness, emotion and physical sensation. They teach you how to see, hear and touch other people with the "bare perception" of fundamental consciousness, and how to dissolve the defenses and projections that keep us from being intimate. Meditations for couples develop subtle attunement and contact with each other, integrate oneness and separateness, and facilitate nondual realization.

The Realization Process is combined with writing practices or dance improvisation for deepening one's connection to fundamental consciousness as the source of creativity. These practices develop spontaneity and authentic expression.
