CAROLINE BLISS BIOGRAPHY
During a busy career as an actress, Caroline was introduced to the teachings of J. Krishnamurti, which began an inner questioning about the nature of life and her place in it.
Immersing herself in the philosophy of One-ness or traditional enlightenment with teachers such as Nisagadatta Maharaj, Gurdjieff and Eckharte Tolle, she yearned to be free of the separate ego.
However she soon realised that she didn't actually know her separate 'self' very well at all, as she was too busy trying to transcend it and find an illusive state of perfection. There were buried traumas and emotions which she needed to understand first, before she could begin to move beyond.
She therefore dived into therapy, trying various forms until she was fully able to access and connect with her deepest self.
Constantly returning to the simple directness of Krishnamurti's teachings, however, eventually brought a powerful transformation of her consciousness.
Caroline then decided to devote the next 18 years to parenting her and her husband’s two sons, which introduced its own challenges. Through the daily struggles of motherhood, she learned the deep humility of being not-separate from the human struggle of existence.
During this time Caroline found the link between the state of self-love and freedom from the self, the two seemingly opposite philosophies which she had been exploring. This is the energy of compassion, which transforms the individual, allowing them to see themselves with unconditional love, before seeing all selves with that same empathetic love. Finally this opens the door for an altruistic life where merging into the One state of Being is possible.
Gradually she began to speak to people about that inner freedom and the relationship we have to ourselves and our own stories. Caroline’s philosophy is a practical one. Having walked through her own limiting story to a personal freedom, she is able to listen with great clarity to others, seeing ways in which people trap themselves in their thoughts, beliefs, memories or emotions, and helping them move beyond these to a sense of their own perfection.
Once an individual is free from their story it allows an exploration of Mankind’s relationship to the brain, to time and thought, to the Timeless and to love.
