5-Session Trauma Repair Intensive 

Practicing the Realization Process Release Technique

The goal of this 5-day online workshop is to provide a supportive environment for Realization Process Healing Ground practices, specifically to help unwind constrictions in the body. These constrictions often contain stuck pockets of subtle energy and emotion – whether related to trauma, self-limiting beliefs, or stress. The techniques in this class help us deepen in our experience of fundamental consciousness by releasing somatic constrictions and holding patterns, using gentle attunement practices and the Realization Process release technique. To keep the course intimate and focused, there is a 5-student limit.

Description: 

Each student will each receive: 2 x (approx) half-hour personalized and custom-tailored Realization Process guided sessions, with specific focus on the Realization Process release technique. Students will also learn how to apply the techniques to themselves, and will receive optional homework, time for Q&A, and support via email. 

The tongue-in-cheek subheading for this course easily could have been:

“Your ego is not just being a jerk.”  

Sometimes in spiritual culture we can receive messages such as 1) the suffering we experience is pointless and/or meaningless, and 2) that by applying “awareness,” it will all someday go away. An initial awakening experience – or even several peak experiences – will not necessarily heal the defensive patterning that we have learned during our formative life experiences. This is because much of this defensive patterning is purposeful – it serves a function in meeting our needs or protecting us from pain, even though it is also burdensome. 

An example of this defensive patterning with a purpose would be: “I need to be the strong one in my family, because that is how I will get love.” Of course, being strong and resilient are both positive qualities. With that said, if strength and resilience are the only modes we can operate in, and they are coupled with a fear that “If I’m not strong and resilient, I won’t receive love anymore,” then this can prove to be a source of suffering. It will lead to a condition of never being able to let our guard down and relax, even in contexts where letting our guard down is fully appropriate.  

This class utilizes three primary practices for helping to release somatic constrictions / holding patterns:

  1. Attunement. These are focusing techniques we can use to directly inhabit the body, and find the part of our mind-body system that is already fundamentally well and at ease. In Realization Process, this is called fundamental consciousness, in that it was never wounded and cannot be wounded. Feeling into fundamental consciousness through the internal space of the body is an important skill to build first, before doing release work. This helps us gain the proper foundation for a solid spiritual (though also palpable) foundation to “release into.”

     

  2. Release. When we feel that there is a constriction in our body that is due to some form of stress or emotional suffering, the Realization Process release technique is one very simple tool we can use to feel into the constricted part – and gradually release it – with open awareness and gentle, compassionate focus.

     

  3. Inquiry. One of the key aspects of releasing a holding pattern is becoming cognizant of the purpose of a given constriction in our mind-body system. Common reasons for constricting are to protect ourselves, or to get our needs met in some way (love, autonomy, etc.). We will discuss powerful inquiry techniques that can be used to uncover the purpose of a constriction or holding pattern – specifically, inquiry techniques that can help us become cognizant of any beliefs, needs, and /or desires that may have been useful at some point and time, but that now may be hindering our overall growth and potential.

In this class, you will practice and learn how to facilitate for yourself:

  1. Releasing a thread of suffering in your mind-body system, using gentle, an experiential approach
  2. Employing experiential attunement and release techniques
  3. If applicable, learning inquiry techniques that help us find the positive value(s) of an item of personal suffering. This can be helpful for both self-compassion and releasing constrictions.
  4. Becoming more conscious of our emotional triggers and how to work with them compassionately
  5. Using fundamental consciousness as a healing factor and resource for stressors and trigger points

Pre-requisites: 

  1. You are looking to learn and practice exercises that contribute to your emotional and spiritual well-being, and understand that these exercises are not designed to treat or heal medical conditions that are known to derive from organic causes, for example: bipolar depression, depression or anxiety due to thyroid issues, or psychological maladies due to traumatic brain injury.
  2. You have done at least some exploratory work of your own emotions and well-being in the past – whether experiential therapy, dynamic therapy, cognitive therapy, transformational or holistic forms of coaching, or other mind-body healing methods such as Realization Process, Sedona Method/Release Technique, Bioenergetics/Core energetics, EFT, Somatic Experiencing, etc.
  3. You have read and agree to the conditions of our Terms of Use page.
  4. You agree to help co-facilitate this work with other participants by fostering an environment of acceptance and support, and agree to keep all discussions in class expressly confidential.
