About Candace Cave

Candace at the helm (3).jpg

At age 9 I learned to sail on San Francisco Bay.

1981-2008 I sailed a small boat 40,000 ocean miles.


On ocean crossings longer than 5 days, In a constantly moving universe, I became the still center of all pervasive space. Fundamental Consciousness arose spontaneously as an embodied experience. This felt like the nirvana yoga practice promised.

Whenever I returned to land, embodied nirvana disappeared.


In 1983 I actively turned my spiritual embodiment practice & studies to uncovering & stabilizing this self-arising attunement of embodied nonduality, 

In 2010 I read a book by Judith Blackstone. At my first class with her in 2011, when she instructed, "the space inside is the same as the space outside, & you are the center of that experience" I realized the source of my quest was to be found in Realization Process. 

Since then, I've studied 100s of hours with Judith Blackstone & 1000s of hours guiding RP students. 

I sailed across oceans to south sea islands, navigating the voyages with a sextant & charts. I rely on Realization Process to navigate my journey to retrieve the most subtle dimension of myself & to live embodied in wholeness of being.


I invite you to sail along with me on a journey to discover yourself as the center of all pervaive experience.

I know what it feels like...

To Feel disconnected from people & the movement of life. 
         ➺ RP guided me to rest in my core, feeling I am the center of all experience.

To Feel Overwhelmed by details & connections & expectations.
         ➺ RP guided me into my subtle core & ever-unifying disentangling.

To Experience Chronic Pain when I walk.
         ➺ RP & a good PT helped settle balance points & awaken qualities in my body. My body now moves with grace & ease.

To Feel Abandoned by those I believed loved me.
         ➺ RP revealed foundations as body locations of reliable support from Gravity.

To Struggle against old patterns that repeatedly trigger inappropriate response.
        ➺ RP unwound constrictions & offered unified wholeness in all qualities. 

To Experience Embodied Awakening & lose that feeling over & over.
        ➺ RP practice gradually helped me be "whole enough" to feel mostly stable & attuned to FC amidst all of the movement of life.

To Puzzle over the permutations of meaning, experience & depth in the deceptively simple RP instructions. 
        ➺ RP practice, study inquiry & exploration provides ever-deepening insights.

I feel so fortunate to have met Candace early on - she's like a Judith whisperer...  translating the essence of the Realization Process in a ways accessible & calming & deep... also her voice is awesome: so soothing it lulls you into a deep settling - right into those places she's guiding you to settle into.
