What's the Judy Cohen Story?

Former trying-to-be-good girl. Former clinical psychologist. Former serial entrepreneur and business owner.

Former depressed, anxious, therapy-chasing, anti-depressant-taking, guilty, ashamed, suicidal despairer.

Former seeker of Self improvement and being Better.

Former Certified Facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie. Former Certified Senior Facilitator-Trainer of Scott Kiloby's Living Inquiries, and other various methods of self help via nonduality.

Desperate to feel better. (
Duh) For years.

Nothing worked more than briefly.

Eventually Judy came to see that the methods she was trained and certified in actually perpetuated, the opposite of helping to relieve, the sense of self as damaged.

She saw clearly that the sense of self was
strengthened and maintained by all that methodology.

Along the way, several awakening experiences happened. But they were never Judy’s goal or interest, and really she didn't care. She wanted only to feel better.

And contrary to popular myth, these awakenings didn’t put an end to unpleasant feelings.

So then, all the seeking, all the inquiry, the desperation to improve and feel better and shift, was for… well,
what, exactly?

Eventually Judy realized: What if
every experience was an awakening? What if she could give up seeking because… This. Is. It.

And if that was so, then… what could any teacher or technique give her that wasn’t already here, that she didn’t already have?

So? Judy ditched it all.

All the certifications.
* All the seeking, the hope of "better", the self-fixing. All the certainty that "Judy" is a real thing.

She began to think for herself. Questioned everything. Got herself out of the way.

Judy saw that
every experience- good, bad, happy or sad- is an awakening.

She knew to give up seeking because there was nothing more to get. She'd had it all along.

She began to help others…
m • Find their own ways to disrupt the mind's lies and lighten up their world.

m Discover how problem-making in any form perpetuates itself and the Self.

m • See that they can be flawed, imperfect humans… and also not broken.

Bye-bye, unhappy box. Bye-bye, illusion. Bye-bye, dream-person.

Hello, broken spell. Judy Cohen had been Dis-Enchanted. Dis-Illusioned.

Ah, relief. Much more fun, this no-Judy-to-fix existence.

Though she's still here as Judy.

Of course.

See her? She's waving.

Life goes on. Human continues.

Judy's so grateful to know this now.

And amazingly, happily, paradoxically…
