WHY WE ARE

RealizeMedia.org exists to bring transformative practices and teachings to as many people as possible. We connect the best technology available with world-renowned teachers to deliver wisdom teachings to wherever you are.

Internet bandwidth, interactive technology and familiarity with online interaction have all accelerated in recent years. It has now become possible to offer live, interactive web-based contact with teachers in a way that is a very good second best to actually being in the room together, and RealizeMedia is proud to be at the forefront of this development.

WHAT WE DO

Realize does not simply film live events or teachings and stream them to an online audience. We work with teachers to craft teachings especially for people following the teachings at home. The teachers we partner with are giving their teachings direct to camera, looking directly at you. This creates a powerful sense of intimacy with the teacher, and transmission of their teachings. In addition, each course includes live, interactive sessions with the teacher where you can bring your questions and comments, interacting via a video link in real time.

All our courses run in your web browser, with no need for special plug-ins, no software to download, and no conference call to dial in to. We have built the platform to be as seamless and straightforward as possible, so you can give your full attention to the teachings and not be distracted by the technology.

WHO WE ARE

RealizeMedia.org was formed in 2014 and launched in early 2015, built over a year of discussing, envisioning and experimenting between the 3 founding directors.
