Qigong — the training of the Qi — is an ancient Chinese practice. It facilitates healing through training the mind to improve the body’s functioning. When my friend Joanna first introduced me to Dr. Chu, the day after my birthday in 1992, I knew nothing about Qi or Qigong. But after just a few lessons, I knew I’d practice Qigong the rest of my life. As I practice Qigong, I enter states of awareness with which my heart intuitively resonates. As I practice Qigong, my subjective experience of life deepens. Whenever I’m stressed, I remember Sifu Chu’s advice: “Practice Qigong. Shift your perceptions.” Through heart-to-heart transmissions, his unconditional love, knowledge, and wisdom teaches me to simply let being be. July 2010, Sifu Chu honored me with an Empowerment Ceremony, authorizing further study of the Tao. Family and friends enjoyed our tea ceremony, a lion dance and a feast of wonderful food. August 2018, he authorized me to teach the Tao. I am so blessed with the depth of the teachings received.
Judith Blackstone is is an innovative, experienced teacher in the contemporary fields of nondual realization and spiritual, relational and somatic psychotherapy. She developed the Realization Process, a direct path for realizing fundamental (nondual) consciousness, as well as the application of nondual realization for psychological, relational and physical healing. Her sensitivity to the subtle emanations from all living forms astounds, comforts and inspires me. I am also moved by her compassionate wisdom and skill in guiding each person’s natural unwinding of the body, heart and mind toward openness, towards realization. When we first met at Esalen in December 2007, I knew immediately that I wanted to study extensively with her. Her subtle precise nondual practices heal people psychologically, relationally and physically. Shifting from the fragmentation of subject-object duality to the unity of our essential being seems radical, but it’s possible. We can realize our own nature as vast, clear, unchanging, unbounded space. A Senior Realization Process teacher since 2018, I am deeply blessed, humbled and honored to share Judith’s work with others.
