Awaken Spiritually ~ Heal Relationally ~ Embody Nonduality
Learn gentle, precise body-centered meditation practices that nourish the unfolding of your heart, body and mind.
- Awaken your whole being
- Feel grounded, vibrant and transparently present
- Speak-hear-touch with bare perception
- Move with fluidity and balance
- Consciously become part of life’s flow
Realization Process 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. These experiential practices, free of doctrine or ideology, 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.
Realize transparent luminous space.
Experience the radiance of being alive.

March 2014 Series: Open into Love
9:30 am – 12 noon Saturdays March 1, 8, 15, 29
Open into the stillness of your being. Sense the warm tender vibrations of your pulsing heart. As your belly softens and your heart unfurls, your actions unfold as your deepest offerings.
Love at this depth is the vast unchanging consciousness to which we can attune inwardly at the innermost center of our being. Love is the core-to-core contact with another in which we are both completely connected and completely free. Grounded in our bodies, open in our hearts and clear in our minds, we relate to ourselves and others with kindness, empathy, and compassion.
You are warmly invited to come meditate with me this March – midst blooming tulips, redbuds, and plum trees. Join an open-hearted group of people on a journey to awaken our bodies, hearts, and minds to the realization: Love is who we are.
Together, we’ll practice gentle, precise Realization Process meditations that attune us to the transparent, luminous space of fundamental consciousness. As we make deep contact with our essential self, we experience our spiritual essence, which is beyond the physical, energetic and conceptual levels of our being. As our fears and habitual defenses dissipate, we rest in the stillness of our being, nourished by our radical aliveness.
The cost for this 10-hour series is $200. Please contact me to register. Space is limited.
Satsang: Experiencing Emptiness & Presence
7–8:45pm Tuesdays March 4, 11, 18
Practice gentle, precise embodied meditations that deepen the ways we experience connection with ourselves, with others, and with our environment.
Come meditate with me, joining an open-hearted group of people on a spiritual path. Being in a small group that meets regularly is an important way to deepen meditation – and also a supportive place to talk about spiritual experiences and life situations that range from challenging to joyful. It’s a blessing to make connections with others who share similar interests and values.
After introductions, I’ll lead gentle embodied meditations that help us make deep contact with the internal space of our body. As we connect more fully with our essential self, we become more authentic. Our perceptions shift. We realize our essential nature as vast, clear, unbounded luminous space. There will be an opportunity for sharing as well as time for questions and answers.
Satsang is free for those enrolled in the March Series. However, Satsang is also separate from any classes or series and is suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators. All are welcome. Donation: $10 to $20. You’re warmly invited to bring a guest or two for free. Email me to sign up, as space is limited.

Perhaps you too will experience yourself coming home during our retreat.
