Oct 20, 2020, 1 smiles 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. We can access an inner source of well-being that helps us heal when we embody ourselves fully; inhabiting the body is "a kind of reclaiming of ourselves." The process includes specific practices to inhabit the whole body, attune to its central channel (through head, torso and pelvis), and open to fundamental consciousness. It also includes practices for discerning and releasing traumatic events, along the exact pathways that we ... Read Full Story
Oct 14, 2020, 1 smiles This week's Awakin Call guest: 'Judith Blackstone: Trauma & Healing Power Of ConsciousneReflection questions: Our guest this week, author and teacher Judith Blackstone, posits that when we access the unified dimension of fundamental consciousness, "the fragmentation of trauma, and the fragmentation in our reception and response to life can begin to heal." Have you ever had an experience of the unified ground of your being that allowed you to transform old patterns of constriction and hurt? If yes, what insights or learnings have revealed themselves through this experience?

Sep 02, 2020, 1 comments, 2 smiles Last Saturday, we had the privilege of hosting Awakin Call with Deb Ozarko. Deb Ozarko is a pioneer in the world of “collapse awareness,” seeking to understand the global predicament of our civilization. Her path of heartful engagement with the very real possibility of civilizational collapse led her to write Beyond Hope: Letting Go of a World in Collapse. Deb’s journey has taken her through powerful activism work as a vegan advocate, intense physical performance as a tri-athlete, and experiments with stepping back from civilizational life. Now her work is more focused on living a meaningful life in a context where she believes our collective story is breaking apart in coming years and decades. As she writes: "As a passionate activist for animals, the Earth and accelerated Soul evolution, I’ve dedicated my life to ensuring that there are no wasted moments. This has taught me the delicate balance between being and ... Read Full Story

Jul 11, 2020, 2 comments, 5 smiles Dear Beloved Service Space Community, I wanted to invite you to an intimate circle around living in mystery that Sue Cochrane and I are hosting. Sue and I have been in dialogue about our healing journeys with cancer. Lately, some new developments have surfaced that have put both of us at the crossroads of uncertainty. We will explore this crossroad and how we are navigating it, then invite members from the community to share on how this relationship with the unknown is manifesting in their own lives, and what is being revealed in the process. Feel free to join us tomorrow July 12th at 9 am Pacific for part or all of this 2 hour circle. With Aloha, Kozo
Jul 01, 2020, 3 smiles Dear Friends, We are excited to invite you to participate in a three-part workshop with Prakash Shellikeri--a man who was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer six years ago after the loss of his wife to cancer in 2011. Although Prakash was given a very stark prognosis, he knew that deep healing was possible through holistic practices that had helped his wife on her cancer journey. After much research and experimentation (Prakash is a trained engineer with a strong science background), he activated the inner healing system of his body using a combination of holistic approaches including Mind Body Sound Resonance Technique. Over the years he has worked with people with a wide range of conditions, including cancer, Parkinsons, autoimmune diseases and more. It gives him immense joy to help others tap into their own inner healer. Prakash has generously offered to share his approach to holistic healing, and related practices with ... Read Full Story
Jun 28, 2020, 1 comments, 7 smiles Last Saturday, we had the privilege of hosting Awakin Call with Jolanda van den Berg. Jolanda van den Berg defies the conventional labels our world has to offer. Her work over 25 years has transformed the lives of thousands of put-at-risk children in Peru. She has created a series of boutique hotels, and offers private 1:1 sessions with people struggling with various life challenges. By some definitions, she might be dubbed a philanthropist, a social entrepreneur, a life coach, or even a mystic. But Jolanda's expansive life resists reductive titles. After swimming with the dolphins in Iquitos in 1995, Jolanda flew back to the Netherlands. Six months later she was in back in Cusco—after having quit her job and sold her possessions. She had no concrete plan, little money, and spoke no Spanish. But her resolve was clear—if she could help even a single child, that was enough. Twenty-four years later Jolanda and the organization she founded have transformed the lives ... Read Full Story
