Praise for Belonging Here:
"Belonging Here is a superbly written, wonderfully profound, and helpful book—the distillation of a lifetime’s wisdom and practice. It is the clearest guide to embodiment that I have ever read and its truths will illumine anyone who comes to it. With this book, your experience of yourself and the universe will be transformed."
—Andrew Harvey, author of The Direct Path and The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism


"This book lucidly reveals the most profound insight known to humankind: that we are made of the luminosity of awareness itself. Drawing on a lifelong spiritual journey and decades of teaching experience, Dr. Blackstone is uniquely qualified to illumine the healing power of non-dual awareness. She gives special emphasis to the work involved in repairing the injuries that often happen on the journey into self-realization—especially those that befall us in childhood as open, defenseless, and sensitive beings. Dr. Blackstone shows us how to explore all the subtle dimensions of what it is to be an embodied human being who lives in meaningful relationship with others, while remaining fully immersed in the state of pure awareness. I highly recommend this book as a path to realization in its own right."
—Peter Fenner, PhD, author of Radiant Mind, The Edge of Certainty, and Essential Wisdom Teachings

The Empathic Ground

The Empathic Ground:
Intersubjectivity and Nonduality in the Psychotherapeutic Process
By Judith Blackstone

Available in stores and online.
Read
the first chapter
To order from SUNY
The Empathic Ground explores the experience of nondual consciousness as the basis of human connection, and describes its importance for psychological healing. It looks at the therapeutic relationship from the perspectives of psychoanalytic intersubjectivity theory and Asian nondual philosophy, finding practical meeting points between them that illuminate crucial issues in psychotherapy, such as transference and counter-transference, the nature of subjectivity, and the role of the body. The book also includes a series of exercises developed by the author for realizing nondual consciousness in the clinical setting. Access to this subtle, unified dimension of consciousness develops both our individual human capacities—perception, understanding, love, and physical pleasure—and our relationships with other people. It thus has profound significance for both psychological healing and development, and for the relationship of psychotherapist and client.

"In the larger and ongoing cultural dialogue between East and West, this beautifully written book represents a new and important moment of advance. In it, Blackstone deftly examines subtle nuances in the interface between Western modes of psychotherapy and Asian systems of nondual awareness and practice. By means of a careful and informed examination of major sources, she offers a precise and considered theoretical approach to the specific integration of notions of intersubjectivity and of the nondual awareness into modalities of Western psychotherapy. In ten intelligent and powerful 'realization processes,' Blackstone brings forward practical exercises for the specific application of such a theoretical approach to the nondual to the practice of psychotherapy." — Paul E. Muller-Ortega, author of The Triadic Heart of Såiva: Kaula Tantricism of Abhinavagupta in the Non-Dual Shaivism of Kashmir.
   
Enlightenment Process

The Enlightenment Process
A Guide to Embodied Spiritual Awakening
By Judith Blackstone

Available from all major online bookstores.
The Enlightenment Process describes the process of enlightenment as the gradual realization of our most subtle dimension of being as unified, all-pervasive consciousness. It also explains how we uncover our authentic selfhood and embodiment at the same time as we arrive at our spiritual oneness with other people, the world and cosmos.

Elizabeth Lesser (author of Broken Open) writes: “Judith Blackstone’s The Enlightenment Process carves a clear path through the confusing nature of human life, cutting away the underbrush of our own misconceptions about and resistance to the practice of awakening. I recommend it to anyone, newcomers to the path of meditation and consciousness, and those who have been studying for years. What a gem of a book, written by one of those rare authors who writes beautifully, from the core of her own experience, and in service of the reader's most noble self.” Includes exercises from Realization Process. This is a new, revised edition of The Enlightenment Process.
