While the overall info if great, what I REALLY like are the concrete exercises. I especially like the exercise (and concept) related to "inhabiting the interior of the body". Was introduced to the author via Sounds True's conference on Mind and Spirituality. Glad Judith Blackstone was included there.
5.0 out of 5 starsStep into your True Nature through embodiment
Reviewed in the United States on November 15, 2014
One of the best spiritual help CDs I have. She is a sensitive that knows what she's doing. Creates embodiment in the first exercise that grounds you for spiritual experiences. A master at using just the right words to lead you into the deep Self. She is non religious and no nonsense in her approach which gives you a direct transmission of fundamental consciousness, Love it and use it regularly.
2.0 out of 5 starsContent great, quality of discs and recording poor
Reviewed in the United States on September 8, 2016
The content is great but the quality of the CDs was awful. I ordered 2 different sets, each one was missing the audio on 2 of the discs! The audio was so low in volume during a lot of it that I could barely hear it even on full volume!
These cds go great with the book Enlightenment Process. I did the exercises and have been opening and experiencing life from the wholeness (core) of my being. When the defenses come down, it is truly a blessing. I am living, where as before I was only trying to survive.
5.0 out of 5 starsOne of my Top 2 picks for Healing and Well-Being

I bought the mp3 audio through Sounds True, but thought I'd also leave a review here as this method of meditation has transformed my life in so many ways.
First of all, I had a pretty rough childhood which included losing my mother at the age of 8, only 5 months after immigrating to the U.S. from Asia, and not knowing a single word of English. That, combined with a dysfunctional family to start with, left me pretty scarred growing up.
I read a ton of self-help books, and they all helped in some way. Went to a very expensive NLP therapist that charges $200/hour for about 1.5 years, and it helped me release a lot of old wounds.
After 1.5 years, I felt considerably better about my life and myself, so I stopped going to the therapist. But I knew there were still things I still wanted to work on regarding my feeling of safety and how I relate to others.
I was actually introduced to The Realization Process several months before I started seeing my expensive therapist, at a time in my life when I had been unemployed for about 2.5 years, broke, and had developed very severe anxiety around people as a result of my situation.
Because of my desperate situation, I was motivated to do the meditation every single day for a couple of months, and it helped me feel safe in my body and abated my anxiety so I could be calm during a crucial interview. I got the job, and thus began to piece my life together.
When my new job started back in 2012, the motivation to do the meditation waned because I was no longer in desperation, so I didn't practice the meditation again until I stopped seeing my expensive therapist.
I picked up my practice of The Realization Process again in January 2015 and also took a day long workshop with Judith in Berkeley. Since then, I've been doing the meditation on average about 2X-3X per week for 30 minutes each time.
The meditation has helped me be more comfortable with taking up more space within my body, transforming my slouching posture to a naturally occurring vertical posture, helping me breath deeper and slower breaths. The end result is a greater sense of ease, self-possession, and safety.
I noticed that when I do my meditations regularly, it changes the way I live in my body, the way I move has a gentle sense of power to it, and others treat me with more respect as a result of me being more comfortable inside my skin.
I never really understood the term "comfortable in her skin" until I practiced The Realization Process. Then I understood it because being comfortable with yourself has very much to do with how comfortable you are living within the space inside your body. When people have experienced trauma, it causes them to contract their muscles in response to the stress, and over time, these contractions become part of the way your body is organized.
The Realization Process helped me reclaim parts of myself that I was not in touch by helping me to gradually release these inner contractions so I can reclaim my internal space and sense of power/safety/well being.
It could do the same for you :-) Combine the meditation with Dr. David Burns's books on transforming cognitive distortions to help you heal both your thoughts and your body/soul!
David Burns's books that helped me transform my self-defeating beliefs and behaviors are: When Panic Attacks, Intimate Connections.

This for me is the best spiritual book I have read. Beautifully and clearly explained and making total sense. Many other books are now almost irrelevant for me. This is the work I need to do and I have bought the audio tapes. It has to be the right person, saying the right thing in the right way, to hit the nail on the head, and this is it for me. Can't recommend it enough.
