Host Jeffrey Mishlove discusses giving and receiving blessings with Rachel Naomi Remen, author of My Grandfather's Blessings. Remen says that when we bless another person, we strengthen their wholeness and life force, helping them to better deal with whatever they are going through.
A blessing can last for five minutes or it can last for a lifetime. Remen believes that the purpose of every human life is to uncover the hidden holiness that is in all events and all people. She believes that in the modern day world we have allowed science to define life for us, but that life is far larger than science can explain.
