Judith Blackstone, PhD, is an innovative teacher in the fields of nondual realization and spiritual, relational and somatic psychotherapy. She developed the Realization Process and teaches it worldwide and online in workshops and teacher certification trainings. She was a psychotherapist in private practice for forty years. She is the author of Trauma and the Unbound Body: the Healing Power of Fundamental Consciousness; Belonging Here; The Enlightenment Process; The Intimate Life; The Subtle Self; and The Empathic Ground. Judith studied with many teachers in the Hindu and Buddhist traditions. However, the Realization Process practices emerged outside of any tradition in response to her own needs for healing and realization, and the needs of her students.
