What is “Finding Uber Bliss”?
Finding Uber Bliss is a journey that uses your creative resources (and new ones you will discover along the way) to reach a place of higher awareness and a freedom of thinking that can apply both to more creative expression and a greater enjoyment of the true meaning of life.
The journey is shared in classes, workshops, or webinars where participants, or “Uber Troopers”, are guided by an Uber Guide through six stages filled with stories of wisdom, creative adventures - creative writing, smart camera art, drawing, painting), brushes with the absurd, enlightened contemplation, and deep, profound playfulness. Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching tools are plugged into the journey for a gentle, playful, non-pressurized experience both for the Guide and the Uber Troopers.
This training will teach you to be an Uber Guide but you get to be an Uber Trooper so you receive the benefits of the experiences and readings.
All this material is provided but you are invited to add your own wisdom, experience and authenticity.
Uber Bliss Levels to Discover:
- The Art of Paying Attention
- The Call to Hear Creative Voices
- Building an Inner Sanctuary
- How to Tilt Your Head and See Differently
- Creative License and the Freedom to Express a Thousand Ways
- Arriving at Uber Bliss Celebration!
Uber Troopers earn "badges" after completing creative missions for each level, making the prospect of small rewards a fun motivator and a nostalgic return to childhood adventures.
|Philosophies in Finding Uber Bliss|
"Inspiration is an awakening, a quickening of all man's faculties, and it is manifested in all high artistic achievements." ~Giacomo Puccini
“Anyone at all who is known for having found a path to consistent, recurring joy — cites staying present as the essential teaching.” ~David Cain, Author of You Are Here
"Living creatively, you don't constantly manufacture a future, you grow the life that is present." ~Thomas Moore
“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.” ― Amit Ray
"You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each MOMENT. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.” ― Henry David Thoreau
"The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware." ~Henry Miller
“And I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is.” ~Kurt Vonnegut

|Why the name "Uber Bliss"?|
“Über” is a German word meaning "over", "above" or "across".
"Uber" crossed over from German into English in 1883 when German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche coined the term "Ubermensch" to describe the higher state to which he felt men might aspire. Mensch means "man" in German. That's kinda cool.
The name of this program, "Uber Bliss", was a spinoff of an explanation Dr. Seuss gave when people asked the question, “Where do you get your ideas?” He invented a fictitious account involving a hamlet in Switzerland called Über Gletch where he claimed he went every August to get his cuckoo clock fixed and while waiting, strange people would give him his ideas. It turned out to be an explanation that was as absurd as the question, “Where do you get your ideas?”
“Where do you get your ideas?” is a confounding question to most artists and writers because the genesis of ideas is elusive; there often is no explanation that the conscious mind can grasp. Because he was so imaginative, Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss), was frequently asked this question and rather than get annoyed, he invented a description, which showed us his tongue-in-cheek resourcefulness, his ability to rise above predictability, and his comfort with being imaginatively absurd. (All handy elements in the creative process as well as in life.)
The Greeks, who were known for inventing myths to explain the unexplainable, invented Muses to justify where ideas come from. So you see, Muses and Uber Gletch have a common theme not to mention, the reference to “uber” as aspiring to a higher state.
When the transportation network, Uber, created a new association to the word, I was concerned people would be think Uber Bliss was related to a taxi service and considered changing the name. Instead, my inner Dr. Seuss helped me get resourceful which was easy since both the Uber transportation network and Finding Uber Bliss, "transport" people to places that will make them happy.
Consider that you are about to get a lift to a new way of existing in your world.
