Bloom with Bliss
Bloom with Bliss is first and foremost a philosophy of self development where we each joyfully flourish in our own way, in our own time. It’s also a curriculum designed to help participants grow in their expansion of their whole self, mainly through relaxation techniques and thoughtful visualizations. We become more aware, when we practice knowing and paying attention to our intuitive signals, otherwise known as our personal inner guides. Then, we can use that wisdom to make better decisions for ourselves–ones that align us with the direction that we need to take in any given moment.
I teach Bloom with Bliss programs to both adults and children in a variety of settings: library, school and religious education. The sessions may be modified to fit the goals of the program and group’s dynamic.

I wanted to share my mantra with you because it has transformed me from the inside out. Here it is: “I take care of myself and accept myself with all my strengths and weaknesses so that, I may be of service to the world.”
I realized about 8 months ago after meeting with a friend to do some body & mind work, that I was on the wrong path and needed to redirect my efforts at the fork in the road. Because my existing path wasn’t really there anymore, I was kind of spinning my wheels in one place at that crossroads. I had to take the “harder” path and yet I wanted to just do what was familiar to me unconsciously, but consciously I knew that I needed to turn at the fork in the road and that there would be more of an ease to that way.
When I started to speak this mantra daily, my needed actions became clearer, even though they weren’t logical and easy. But now as I have experienced the new path that I moved forward onto, the first part of my mantra I am actually fulfilling more and more and the last part of my mantra is becoming clearer and clearer on what service I am called to do in this world.
I am so grateful to Amy Appell for being a guide for me on this journey and for God who put her in my life. He continues to put amazing women in my life, I just need to be aware and alert at each turn and twist in the road.
