Realization practices are practical, gentle, embodied meditations. They awaken us to our spiritual essence. As we make deep contact with the internal space of our body, we connect more fully with our essential self. We become more authentic. We perceive more subtly. We realize our essential nature as vast, clear, unbounded space. As we open to this transparency, our limiting somatic patterns dissolve. Grounded in our bodies, we experience internal coherence and cohesion. Our thoughts, feelings, sensations and perceptions flow more fluidly. We experience life in a more spontaneous and vivid way. Realization practices are a direct path to embodying the luminous stillness of unconditioned fundamental consciousness.
These practices deepen meditation for both beginning and advanced practitioners. Body-centered meditation practices are especially useful for psychotherapists, nurses, bodyworkers and other health professionals for use with their patients and clients, as well as personally. Realization practices integrate spiritual awakening with relational healing and embodiment. We experience oneness without losing inward attunement to ourselves. The more fully we open to the absolute stillness of fundamental consciousness, the more freely the movement of life takes place. We can embody this subtle dimension.
Come meditate with me.
Feel grounded and vibrantly present.

Esalen Retreat: Awakening to and Embodying Spiritual Essence
2014 (dates to be announced)
Come join me at Esalen next year. Experience the wide-awake aliveness of the dramatic Big Sur coast. Unwind in Esalen’s natural mineral hot springs. Listen to the crashing Pacific Ocean waves. Sit on the rocky cliffs at the water’s edge. Let the early morning fog whisper to your face. Everywhere you wander, your senses will be rejuvenated. Together, we’ll meditate and talk. Perhaps you too will experience yourself coming home during our retreat.
Fall 2013 Series: Open into Stillness
3-5 pm Mondays September 16, 23, 30, October 7, 14
You’re warmly invited to join a small group to practice realization exercises that awaken us to our spiritual essence. Together, we’ll open into stillness. We’ll open into the luminous space that is deeper than the physical, conceptual and energetic levels of our being. Please join me in experiencing the aliveness of this present moment. We can consciously become part of life’s flow. As we deepen contact with our authentic nature, we let go of limited modes of perception and guarded responses to life. As we open into stillness, we become one with the unfolding of life. We experience clarity, creativity, and peace. We open to grace.

As we awaken to our spiritual essence, we realize ourselves as silence and stillness, even in the midst of continuously moving waves of experience.
