Upcoming Workshops and Courses

Training: Embodiment Aspect of the Realization Process

Spring 2024. Part One: Marcia Haarer & Christi Bemister, Taught in person, Ann Arbor, MI. Part Two: June 20-24 (with Judith in Woodstock) 


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.

Upcoming Course: Realization Process and Understanding Chronic Pain & Trauma

This introductory online course presents the basic biology/psychology of the origin of pain and how pain is a whole system response to distress, particularly trauma. This is combined with the use of Realization Process practices to disentangle maladapted holding patterns related to trauma and pain. Education, research, self-reflection, and interactive exercises develop your ability to use this information for your own healing as well as for healing of your clients.

This course is meant for individuals with at least one Realization Process certification received through Judith Blackstone, PhD.

The fundamental ground of your being has never been injured. As you attune to it, you can become free of depression, anxiety, bitterness and confusion. You can experience the spontaneous upwelling of compassion for yourself and others. You can find within your body an innate, ever-present source of equanimity and happiness.
