Nuggets From Judith Blackstone's Call Posted by Kozo Hattori, Oct 20 2020 Last Saturday, we had the privilege of hosting Awakin Call with Judith Blackstone. Judith Blackstone, PhD, is an innovative teacher and author in the contemporary fields of nondual realization and spiritual, relational and somatic psychotherapy. Over four decades she has developed and taught the Realization Process, a direct path for realizing fundamental (nondual) consciousness, applying it to psychological, relational and physical healing. The Realization Process teaches that we can enter a subtle pervasive, unified ground of consciousness from deep within our own bodies.

Hello Everyone, It Has Taken Me ... Posted by Monica Dabos, Oct 19 2020 Hello everyone, It has taken me a long time to get back to this magic place. I was occupied with my dance studio promoting dancing without alcohol. Yesdancesb.org and my work of teaching statistics. I use Karmatube everyday for me and my students. I always felt connected. Now that social media has been used for manipulation and invasion of privacy. I feel that everyone who really care about the own wellbeing and the others wellbeing should moved away from FB to this service Space. Of course first I start by home. So here I am back with few more lessons learned and with projects guided to activate consciousness. Since Spanish is my first language, I am doing it more in spanish, but I can still get your wonderful inspiration. Have a wonderful day wherever you are. Thank you again for this amazing platform. More about my projects soon.
