A Step-By-Step Course in Embodied Spiritual Awakening

It is possible to live more deeply, more intimately in touch with yourself and with the world around you. It is possible to experience your interconnection with everything, even as you express your own utter uniqueness. All it takes is a subtle inner attunement to your own body and mind. With The Realization Process, Dr. Judith Blackstone shares for the first time a complete audio training course in her original method for embodied spiritual awakening, through a series of transformational exercises taught here step by step.

Attunement to "Fundamental Consciousness"

At the heart of this work is what Dr. Blackstone calls fundamental consciousness—a primary dimension of being that is the basis of both our individual sense of self and the transcendence of our separateness. This is not something we can grasp conceptually; we need to touch it directly. "As fundamental consciousness, we pervade both the subject and the object of experience," she explains. "We move from imagination to actuality—to truly see, truly touch, truly hear." For the past 25 years in her psychotherapy practice, Dr. Blackstone has developed meditative practices for attuning to fundamental consciousness in oneself and in others. On The Realization Process, she guides you through beginner and advanced versions of these practices, including the core breath technique for accessing the body's central energetic pathway; seeing, hearing, and moving with fundamental consciousness; attuning to the three qualities of fundamental consciousness (awareness, emotion, and physical sensation); and relational exercises for healing and growth in intimate partnerships.


  • Undoing the "holding patterns" that impede spiritual realization
  • The subtle core—your entryway into fundamental consciousness
  • The maturation of the ego
  • How to stabilize and expand your spiritual awakening
  • Following your body's energetic "circuitry" as a path to deeper embodiment
  • Six hours of insights and guided exercises for transforming your experience of yourself, your relationships, and the world

Amazing work! Can't believe I just discovered it. Tara Brach recommended her book The Intimate Life. My husband and I are reading it now and doing the exercises from the Self Realization audio program.

This is a wonderful set of audio recordings read by Judith Blackstone herself and the program includes teaching sections followed by meditation sections. This audio collection is perfect in and of itself or makes the perfect companion to all the books Judith Blackstone's has written on the Realization Process. So far I have read "Belonging Here" and "The Enlightenment Process" and I am about to begin "The Intimate Life."

Judith Blackstone's work has been life-changing for me. Her teaching is so clear and compassionate. I have always been what I call a "floater," I didn't understand why or know that I had other options for being. Now, for the first time in my life I am feeling what it is like to inhabit my body, and I also understand the reasons why I was not able to before now.

This Audio collection is totally life-changing. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

I have found this extremely insightful and helpful in my next steps of being present in the moment and inhabiting my body. Blackstone's Realization Process integrates things I have learned in the past and goes to a whole new level which is quite marvelous.

I have not yet completed the program, having gotten sidetracked by other matters, but the first four out of six CDs have been very helpful for increasing my general conscious embodiment.
