Listen to my Buddhist Geeks interview with Judith Blackstone. I am a teacher in Judith’s Realization Process and Awakening in Life includes some practices from RP, particularly embodiment and healing practices.

Judith is teacher in the contemporary fields of nondual realization and spiritual, relational, and somatic psychotherapy, about her new book, “Trauma and the Unbound Body: The Healing Power of Fundamental Consciousness”. We chat about the connection between embodiment, nondual realization, and healing, and how all three help deepen one other.

We also discuss what fundamental consciousness is, how to attune to it in, the difference between being aware of our bodies and living in and as our bodies, and what it’s like shift from a top-down experience of ourselves, to living directly within the space of our bodies. We also explore how to heal and release patterns of constriction held in the body, so that we can allow ourselves to more deeply inhabit our physical experience, release the grip on ourselves, so that we have a more fluid experience of life.
