THE BLISS EXPERIMENT
28 DAYS TO PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION
by Sean Meshorer
“The Bliss Experiment puts it all together — the inspiration, the science, and the common sense it takes to dedicate ourselves to a life of joy. For those who are ready to choose smiles instead of tears, this book is really great.” —Marianne Williamson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Illuminata
Happiness is good; bliss is better. We enjoy a higher standard of living and more ways to instantaneously fulfill every desire than ever before. So why are we unhappy? Happiness alone is fleeting and not deeply transformative. What we seek is bliss. And we all have the capacity to experience the bliss that can transform our lives, making us more successful, better able to see and seize opportunities, build and improve relationships, and lead a fulfilling life.
Just a moment of bliss can benefit and begin changing your life. And now, in THE BLISS EXPERIMENT: 28 Days to Personal Transformation (Atria; May 2012; $24.00), Sean Meshorer presents his inspiring and proven guide to how we can begin to experience bliss right away. Based on his successful seminars, attended by thousands, THE BLISS EXPERIMENT includes dozens of true life stories from women and men, is backed by over 300 scientific studies, and offers exercises that have worked, time and again, for people from all walks of life. Living proof of the effectiveness of his techniques, Sean suffers with severe chronic pain, and is able to live his life to the fullest through the practices he shares here.
Bliss is complete and constant, a spiritual state where happiness, profound meaning, and enduring truth converge. With bliss comes an unshakeable joy. Bliss helps ease stress, anxiety, and depression, promoting healing. Most powerfully, bliss is a simple, accessible, and lasting solution to all forms of personal suffering, and to the societal and world problems that ail us.
Each chapter in THE BLISS EXPERIMENT includes an illustrative, true story, the science supporting it, the spirit or deeper philosophy or understanding it embodies, and the experiment — your opportunity to open the door to bliss. Many chapters also include a “quick response” bar code, a smartphone-readable link to a video of Meshorer demonstrating the exercise. Using Sean’s practical, spiritual steps, you will see results — just as his students have done again and again. Among the many topics he discusses are:
• The Happiness Scale – How we can spend less time in numbness, pleasure, and relief (false happiness), and experience more everyday happiness and bliss
• Why we fail at being happy and how seeking bliss builds well-being, happiness, health and longevity
• How bliss practices create noticeable, measurable changes in our bodies and physiology, increasing brain wave activity that contributes to learning, healing and spiritual growth
• Releasing the past so painful memories do not intrude, and much more
