Nondual Perception “We were out in Roma’s garden under the redwood trees. There in my view were the boughs of a redwood tree and each needle had a droplet of dew. It was like a jewel. And all of a sudden, that tree had emotion and life – and was giving to me and the world this beauty.” – Marni Barnes, Landscape Architect, Deva Designs

Embodying Nondual Intimacy and Connection – “How wondrous it is to stay here, be connected internally, and not feel overwhelmed in a world that’s very overstimulating.” – Valerie, MFT

Roma Hammel is a spiritual teacher gifted in embodiment awakening through guided meditation. She is sensitive and compassionate. In working with Roma, I have realized an awakened awareness, a blooming of consciousness that profoundly embraces the truth of what I am as an infinite being and more importantly, reveals the unique, habitual movements of spirit embedded in my personal history.

Roma is a gifted teacher and guide, a gentle companion on the journey to embodied presence as a path to spirit. After learning of the Realization Process, I was lucky enough to work with Roma both individually and in a group setting to deepen my experience of this life-changing practice. Roma truly is the embodiment of all that she teaches — inviting, witnessing and supporting the emergence of the most tender, beautiful stirrings of self as reflected in the exquisite natural beauty she has nourished in her garden and home. She employs a variety of experiential and energetic techniques woven with profound compassion and joy.

Through the many years of my spiritual journey, I’ve met a number of exceptional human beings — and none more remarkable than Roma. She is a woman of deep capacity, integrity, love and creative intelligence. She is a naturally gifted teacher whose being emanates from her realized core. To be with her is to feel the fullness of her presence evoking a similar fullness in me. I always feel met, recognized and embraced by her deep listening and responding. In Roma’s presence I feel more vitally alive.

Roma is a master teacher. She conveys the essence of fundamental consciousness through her presence and through her teaching. In her classes there is one-on-one attention that is very valuable. In each class I had the direct experience of fundamental consciousness through Roma’s guidance and being in her field of energy. I always learn something and feel more connected with Source as I work with her. I highly recommend these practices and Roma as a teacher.

Roma teaches as she lives: wholeheartedly, joyfully, and with great skill. She meets each student exactly where they are, reaching out in love and peace to gently guide them towards truth and light. Roma’s patience and wisdom shine brightly — whether through her writings, guided meditations, group discussions, or talks. Roma supports her students to awaken new places within themselves as softly and beautifully as a rose opens to the sunlight.

It is my pleasure to recommend Roma Hammel as a meditation teacher and instructor of Judith Blackstone’s Realization Practices. I have had the sincere pleasure of knowing Roma and working with her over the past three years. She brings many years of teaching experience and personal growth to her classes, and is unstinting of her time and support. She has a unique ability to really listen to the questions of her students and to offer them clear directions which come from a deep place of sensitivity and care. I highly recommend her without hesitation.

Roma is an extraordinary teacher. Her positive energy and enthusiasm easily light up a room. She has a peaceful and comforting presence about her which allows her students to relax into a calm state. She is an amazing listener, she listens to understand, which makes students feel valued and important. She asks thought-provoking questions that are helpful in the self-realization process. I strongly recommend Roma.
