Realization Process: Awakening to and Embodying Spiritual Essence

Oct 02 - 04, 2015 Begins in 4 weeks
with Roma Hammel

Spiritual traditions point to the essence of our being as infinite, radiant, empty awareness. This dimension, the core of our own nature, is deeper than the physical, conceptual, and energetic levels of our being. Realization Process practices offer a gentle, precise approach to opening bodies, minds, and hearts to this essence — the transparent, luminous space of nondual consciousness — which is the basis of our oneness with all other life. Meditations, exercises, and movements help us practice the following:
· Awaken our whole being
· Feel grounded, vibrant, and present



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.


Make a difference and leave a legacy by becoming a Friend of Esalen.
