The Guest is inside you, and also inside me;
you know the sprout is hidden inside the seed. — Kabir
Realization Process is a transpersonal, mind-body approach to meditation that facilitates personal healing and spiritual growth. It consists of innovative meditative practices for realizing the radical openness of our True Nature. These exercises attune directly to the subtle “wisdom core” that runs through the body, and to the unified space of fundamental consciousness that permeates everything. The exercises cultivate subtle awareness, creative self-expression, compassion, inner strength, grounding, complete physical embodiment, and nondual realization. They help to uncover an authentic and more complete experience of ourselves as individuals at the same time that they help us transcend our individuality. Realization Process practices can also be used to facilitate deep contact, resonance and intimacy between two people.
This workshop series is appropriate for both beginning meditators and advanced practitioners. These regular, monthly meetings will allow people to attend when they want to, and learn and deepen in Realization Process at their own pace. It is not necessary to attend all workshops; participants can attend when they would like and as often as they would like. The fee is $50 per meeting. Space is limited to 16 people. Two sliding scale slots are available for those in financial need. To register or make inquiries call Tom at 297-8650. The 12 South Dharma Center is located at the corner of 12 and Linden, at 2301 12 Avenue South. The entrance is on the second floor, up the exterior stairs at the rear of the building.
