Guided Body-Focused Meditation for Transformative Well-Being & Healing

Michael Lydon, Realization Process®
Certified Advanced Practitioner

Hello, I’m Michael Lydon, certified Advanced Practitioner of The Realization Process: a series of guided, body-focused meditation and attunement practices created by Judith Blackstone, PhD. At the heart of this method is the unveiling of our deepest sense of Self, experienced as pristine stillness, vibrant aliveness, and fundamental well-being. 

We can gradually realize and embody this experience – which in spiritual literature is often called Buddha nature, nonduality, or the ground of being – through direct mind-body integration practices and specialized release techniques. Regardless of whether we are beginners or experienced meditators, The Realization Process offers a precise, straightforward approach for spiritual awakening, embodied wholeness, stress and anxiety reduction, and healing support for trauma-based holding patterns. See below for ongoing free classes, upcoming events, and course offerings.
