Workshops, Classes, & Events – BlissBlissBliss Membership Massage and Yoga in Morgantown, WV Thu, 14 Jan 2021 16:15:15 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Workshops, Classes, & Events – BlissBlissBliss 32 32 Oneness Of Mind : Body : Spirit – Oracle Reading 101 Thu, 24 Dec 2020 17:11:07 +0000 By Elizabeth Halliday-Reynolds
Life can feel so separated. We go to work, we try and manage our life. We take care of our people.
Sometimes and for many, it feels like all the time, the taking care of “the self” takes the back burner. Then when we finally do have some time to go within, we are not sure where to start. Or we feel as if the path toward our higher selves and our purpose is blocked by the stresses of the everyday.
Every new years day, I hole up in quiet corner of the house (my bed room), open the curtains to let the light filter in, light a candle, burn some incense and do an oracle card reading for myself centered on the year ahead. I write notes about each card drawn, factor in the reading placement and let the message unravel from unconscious to conscious. The cards help bring forward intuitive guidance in a tangible way. These oracle readings never fail at bringing hope and excitement for the year ahead. The reading is always a reminder of what to prepare for and how to be in grace for the transformation of the self ahead. There are many types of oracle spreads. In this class, Sarah and I teamed up to go over a few spreads that are great ways to get started with your personal oracle card reading journey. We are excited to hear about your empowered intuition development. We can’t wait to see you!

Oracle cards offer valuable intuitive insights and can really help create the oneness of Mind : Body : Spirit.

In this class Sarah and I will guide you through some common oracle card questions. How to get to know your deck, setting intentions for your reading, and understanding open ended vs. direct questions. We will have time to go through two spreads that give you the best results. Bring your favorite deck (we are going to gift you one as part of your class fee).
Price: $66
Date: 2/27/21
Time: 12:30-2:30
Note: Class limited to a socially distanced 6. If an -in person- class is not for you, contact to request a  zoom class with you and a friend.

Soul Contact Sessions With Tonya Mon, 16 Nov 2020 20:05:17 +0000  

Past Lives and Reincarnation

By Tonya Madia, Certified Hypnotist, Medium

“I started out really young, when I was four, five, six, writing poems, before I could play an instrument. I was writing about things when I was eight or 10 years old that I hadn’t lived long enough to experience. That’s why I also believe in reincarnation, that we were put here with ideas to pass around.” ~ Willie Nelson

When my son was a toddler he would wake from his naps befuddled. Looking around the room, eyes wide with confusion he would sometimes ask, “Where is my family?” To which my husband and I would respond, “We’re right here buddy…”

“No,” he would respond, “I mean my other family!” He would then describe his family, his home, and his occupation in great detail. He would tell us about his job as a fireman and talk about the intense heat of the fires and the extreme weight of the hoses. Details a two-year-old would not have known.

One afternoon, while having lunch with my son, he began staring at me intently. This continued for several moments until he blurted out, “It’s you!”

“Yes,” I replied, confused, “it’s me… your mom.”

“No!” he replied. “Don’t you remember? When I was a grown up and we were friends? I would come to your house to pick you up for dances and I would brush your hair?”

I had to admit to him that I did not recall those encounters; however, I trusted his recollection of them 100%.

Reincarnation, the belief that our souls return to begin a new life in another body, is also called transmigration. It is a central tenet of many religions, such as Jainism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Sikhism. Belief in reincarnation is found in many ancient cultures and the belief was also held by Greek historic figures, such as Pythagoras, Socrates, and Plato.

Certain passages of the Bible, such as Matthew 16:13–15 and John 1:21–22, reference reincarnation and question whether Jesus is the reincarnation of Elijah, John the Baptist, Jeremiah, or another prophet.

Numerous cases of young children who report memories of previous lives have been studied over the last 50 years, cases in which thousands of children from different backgrounds and religions have described a life that they have lived before with stunning detail.

Memories of past lives seem to be more easily accessed by young children. Perhaps they have not been long separated from their previous incarnation and have not yet fully come to identify with their new body/identity. Although, if this was the only explanation, it seems to me that every young child would recall past life experiences. There does seem to be a common theme of trauma due to a sudden or violent death, among the children who recall past life memories, which suggests that a violent or traumatic death contributes to the ability to recall a previous life.

There are countless cases from all over the world in which young children recall with incredible accuracy details from a previous life. What is so remarkable about these cases is that in addition to often verifiable facts, there are often physical traits connected to their past live experiences. Birthmarks are often found in the exact location of fatal wounds. Ailments such as asthma are present in individuals who died from drowning or asphyxiation. Evidence also suggests that habits and phobias carry over from past lives, as do talents and skills.

If accepted as fact, a belief in reincarnation would serve to influence and change our personal behavior. If we were all to understand that the way in which we treat others in this life time will have consequences for the way future lifetimes unfold, I believe a shift in consciousness could occur that would change the world for the better.

If you have ever wondered what lives you’ve lived, met someone and felt as if you’ve known them forever or ever been curious about the nature of karma, lives between lives, or past lives, you might be interested in scheduling a Soul Contact Session with me. Sessions are a gentle form of hypnosis allowing access to higher states of consciousness, which allows for contact with guides and recall of memories of lives between lives and past life experiences. Sessions are done remotely via video and last anywhere from 75-90 minutes.

Full Moon Gathering At Bliss Wed, 11 Nov 2020 12:10:18 +0000 By Sarah Smith

Come to a Full Moon gathering!

We all agree that the Full Moon has some sort of strange power over us. Full Moons amplify our emotions and it is not uncommon to feel a heightened sense of energy, both positive and negative during this time. They occur when the opposing signs of the moon and the sun are directly opposite one another. The alignment of these two opposing signs creates a palpable energy that gives way to powerful transitions, acceptance and letting go.

The Full Moon is a time of transformation and change. During the full moon, our emotions rise to help us tune in deeply and notice where we are at. Emotions and intuitions are heightened so that we can reflect upon what we have been focusing on and how that focus came to play out during the month. While the new moon is the opportunity to map out our goals and set intentions behind our desires, the full moon is a time of looking back, feeling into what is and from there using ceremony to wipe the slate clean and begin anew.

Full moons are a great time for release… letting go of what does not serve our higher purpose. When we meet in circle, this creates an energetic “spider web” of support for all in that “web.”

Bring a journal or paper, a favorite essential oil or crystal and an open heart and mind. I look forward to offering a special teaching just for this full moon. – Sarah

A Full Moon gathering is an age-old tradition that dates back to a time when we lived by & honored the earth’s natural rhythms. It’s one of Sarah Smith’s personal goals to bring these traditions back to our communities and circles – it’s powerful medicine! This is a special invite for our community – both women and men – of like-mind. We invite you to spend an evening honoring the support and connection with one another. Note: Be sure to check class times on the calendar.

When Small Businesses Support Each Other – We All Win Sat, 03 Oct 2020 10:36:40 +0000 Festivals cancelled, vendor fairs cancelled, fun events cancelled! Yep 2020 is almost over and we decided to do something sweet and positive. We invited some small business friends to Bliss to set up their tables and give us all a chance to exchange greetings and hopefully pick up a few treasures.

We love crystals at Bliss! We know you do too, so we invited our friend Justin from Winchester Virginia down to visit us. We usually see him at the Festival of Lights in Berkeley Springs.

We also invited Eddie Spaghetti Art to set up shop. You would have missed them at Cheat Fest but now you get to pick up one of their prints full of West Virginia flora, fauna and whimsy!

Guess who else will be with us? Angela Carver is bringing her fun little sign business, “Art By Angela“. These are such great gifts and are sure to bring a smile to your face.

And we absolutely could not host an event and not have “Our Sweet Maya” here with us from Crystal Chick. We are overjoyed that she will get to come and bring us new stock of wire wrapped crystals. She calls them her pretties. You will too!

If you have been in the bliss shop recently, you might have seen the Little Wizards earring display. These creations are made by Ava Reynolds in between her busy senior year at WVU. We love the delicate pieces she brings to life. You might even see Eddie with a secret smile on his face, since he was her art teacher way back when.

There is another new small business in town that you might have been hearing about. Yes “Joy and Hemp“, will be bringing their tinctures, bath bombs, soaps and massage oils. Nothing like hemp to beguile the senses and if that does not make you melt then Jenn Hastings’s smile surely will.

One of the first friends Bliss ever made was Eli Pollard. He’ll REPRESENT Mountain Nerds with his wild and wonderful and sometimes trippy creations.

We might have one other guest business joining us so stay tuned or just stop by and explore this mask friendly, people friendly gathering from 10-4 on Saturday Oct. 10.

Monthly Messages from Spirit Goes Virtual! Fri, 04 Sep 2020 19:00:00 +0000 Tonya began connecting with and channeling messages from spirit in 2009 when she was directed by guides to try automatic writing. After her level III Reiki attunement the following year, Tonya began seeing spirit and she has been channeling messages for clients ever since.

Join Tonya via Zoom, on the last Friday of each month, for an hour-long conversation with spirit as she shares information coming through as it relates to guidance for the participants of each session. Messages can range from information regarding love, relationships, and money and might apply individually or on a group level.

Tonya receives information during sessions in the form of intuitive thoughts, feelings, images, and sounds.
As a Medium she often sees spirits and the images that they show her. Every spirit communicates differently. Tonya likes to think of spirits as simply people without bodies, and as such their personalities are just as varied as ours. Although she can not control if or who “comes through” during each session, she is a firm believer that messages received are always the right message at the right time.

I am definitely going to keep going toTonya was amazing! I have never met her and she was spot on.

Tonya creates such a loving and safe space. I appreciate her authenticity in the readings that she gives.

I chose 10 being best, because I really enjoyed being part of Tonya Madia’s Group.

2020 Group Classes are held at 7:00PM- Be sure to Register in Advance so that the zoom call in number and computer link can be sent to you before the event starts.

Mask Friendly Hatha Yoga Added To Thursday Schedule Sun, 16 Aug 2020 11:21:13 +0000 By Nadia & Elizabeth

…And then there was Hatha yoga.


Those of us who study yoga learn that there are branches of yoga. There is meditation yoga, service yoga, the studies of the philosophies of yoga. Another branch of yoga is the branch of Hatha Yoga. Some call this branch the branch of asana or postures. This is the physical practice of yoga of which there are many styles. Some would say that Hatha Yoga is the grandparent of all the styles.
Hatha as a physical practice symbolizes the sun and the moon. Translated further it also captures the polarities of the body, the masculine and the feminine, the heating and the cooling, the positive and the negative. The intention of Hatha yoga, as a style, is to bring the body into physical balance and to connect that body (yoke it) to this all of its parts (mind/body/spirit).
Nadia writes, “As I see it Hatha is a limb of yoga that focuses on the power of the breath to initiate movement. In this class, we tap into deeper energies and moving through that energy. All levels of yogis can find relaxation or challenge depending on how your subtle body is calling.”

Welcome to this “All Levels” class! Thursday’s at 9:30 starting Sept. 17, 2020.

– Hatha On Thursdays With Nadia-

Note: With social distancing measures in place at the studio where only 6 students are allowed per class, Nadia wanted to let students know that she will be wearing a mask to teach this class even though “masks-off” are allowed once on your mat space. If coming to a small socially distanced group class mask on makes you more comfortable, know that you will not be the only one wearing a mask.

New Moon Intentions: Rituals For The Shift In You Sat, 04 Jan 2020 22:32:52 +0000 By Sarah & Elizabeth

As you move through your life, you start to notice that things just don’t “fit” or feel right and need to be adjusted, re-calibrated and released. If you follow your emotions and chart to how your body resoonds to the moon cycle, you will have noticed that New Moons will feel different than Full Moons.

The Full Moon phase will be a good time to release what no longer fits or serves us. This “clearing” what no longer serves allows an on the spot celebration of sort, because duuring the Full Moon we celebrate what has come to fruition. We often ceremoniously burn what we wish to clear out. From those ashes rise new beginners or at least thoughts toward new intentions.

The New Moon provides us with a clean slate. During this phase we really get serious with the details embedded in each new intention. We chart the dreams that we want to manifest. This is the time to launch new ideas, dreams and goals, pay bills, and yes even sign contracts. We want to allow space to be organized both physically and energetically.

So are you PLANING your New Moons? Are you planting your creation seeds? Are you creating space for energy to flow and transform?


Come to our New Moon intention setting workshop. Each month will have a focus to help you create and celebrate the sacred space you crave.

– Jan. 24 New Moon Intentions –
