Spiritual guide, author, teacher and therapist, Rabbi Ted Falcon, PhD, has been a student and teacher of Jewish meditation and Kabbalah for over forty years. With gentleness and humor, he offers unique insight into spirituality while deeply affirming the integrity of each individual being.
As part of the Interfaith Amigos, Rabbi Ted explores the frontiers of interfaith spirituality. Karen Armstrong calls their "exuberant and courageous" second book, Religion Gone Astray: What We Found at the Heart of Interfaith, "an inspiration and example for all of us in these sadly polarized times."
To bless is to say, "Yes!" to what is. To be a blessing must then mean to exist in a state of "Yes-ness" that transforms the way we operate in the world. When we live in the state of being called "blessing," we approach all outer as well as inner events with that same deep "Yes!" This does not mean the denial of difficulty, but rather the total acknowledgment of the moment: "Yes, I am feeling this," "Yes, this is happening," "Yes, this moment is exactly as it is."
