“The more we let go of the protective constrictions throughout our body, the more we open to and realize ourselves as the disentangled ground of fundamental consciousness.”Judith Blackstone

Ryan Oelke speaks with Judith Blackstone, a teacher in the contemporary fields of nondual realization and spiritual, relational, and somatic psychotherapy, about her new book, “Trauma and the Unbound Body: The Healing Power of Fundamental Consciousness”. They chat about the connection between embodiment, nondual realization, and healing, and how all three help deepen one other.

Ryan & Judith also discuss what fundamental consciousness is, how to attune to it in, the difference between being aware of our bodies and living in and as our bodies, and what it’s like shift from a top-down experience of ourselves, to living directly within the space of our bodies. They also explore how to heal and release patterns of constriction held in the body, so that we can allow ourselves to more deeply inhabit our physical experience, release the grip on ourselves, so that we have a more fluid experience of life.

“Interdependence does not eradicate individuation, individuation does not eradicate interdependence.”Judith Blackstone

The Embodied Success coaching program integrates Ryan’s 20 years of experience, practice, and study of multiple fields: embodiment, business, marketing, meditation, psychology, somatic work, and philosophy.

This training integrates all four essential paths of personal development — growing up, waking up, cleaning up, and showing up. The inner lessons are designed to help you with the first three, while the outer lessons help you leverage all of this inner work through innovative management and marketing strategies that will allow you to show up more fully in your life and in your work, fully aligned with your deepest passion, purpose, and embodied wisdom.

This is a training program that truly does what it says:
