The Bliss Blog

  Hugging is an easy, free way of showing that you care. I have a friend whose birth name is Larry but his ‘real name’ is HUGMAN. Every day he hugs bunches of people. Larry has two rules when it comes to hugging. Always ask first. Always be the last one to let go. When…

  B’shert-  This wonderful Yiddish word tickles me every time I hear it or say it, because it poses a question that I have yet to answer and perhaps never will. It translates to: “a person’s soulmate, considered as predestined or ideal, any good or fortuitous match.” I extend this concept beyond the romantic relationship…

  Two of my favorite people on the planet, Ruth Anne Wood and Peter Moses have joined creative forces and crafted a recitation of a poem that Ruth wrote, inspired by a presentation Peter offered a year ago. If you have been following the Bliss Blog since its inception, you may have read the initial…

  I couldn’t resist the opportunity to add a little Philly flavor to the title of the blog post today:)     This week I came upon a video that had me laughing, dancing (that was part of its purpose) and focusing on what matters most in my life. There are times when I develop…

A few years ago, I came across a modality known as Reconnective Healing. I hestitate to call it a ‘technique’, since that would be too narrow a description.  Eric Pearl had a thriving chiropractic practice in California and after a series of amazing encounters that with humor and eloquence, he shares in his book entitled The…

  Quiet in your heart. Quiet in your mind. Take a moment to place one hand on your chest and the other on your forehead, sending peace to those often too stimulated aspects of yourself. Imagine how it would be to float on gentle waves, trusting that you are being safely held and carried to…
