Bliss Russell is a Priestess of Rhiannon, multidisciplinary Holistic Practitioner and Facilitator. She combines her devotional presence and love for Goddess with the creative integration of naturopathy, energy therapies, bodywork, trancework and shamanic healing. She works in community with the principles of Social Permaculture and Sacred Activism grounded through training with Starhawk.
She weaves her therapeutic talents through varied practice settings including spas, alternative health clinics, and palliative care. Bliss finds that healing happens when clients are able to be themselves in a supportive environment, and is known for her light-hearted, empathetic space holding and gentle humour.
Bliss first qualified in 2001, and has undertaken additional study in traditional healing modalities from around the world as well as academically. She specialises in working with people with cancer and life limiting illnesses (and their families) from diagnosis through to end of life care, as well as working to support parents and supporters through pregnancy, birth and the fourth trimester. Bliss is a classically trained singer and sound therapist, offering healing sound baths using voice and crystal bowls, often collaborating with other musicians to create all-night dreaming soundscape temples. She devotes her free time to gardening, yoga, and pilgrimage to sacred sites.
In 2015 Bliss began making trips with Katinka Soetens to ancient Goddess temple sites around the world, and has been lucky enough to visit Crete, Egypt, and Malta as part of these tours. Over these trips she built trust and friendship, finding a community of Goddess-loving people and a principled mentor in Katinka. She joined the Priestess of Rhiannon training in in 2017 and has not looked back, finding a natural affinity with the practices of the Field of Love and devotions of the Sacred Sexual Priestess, which dovetail into her work with Sacred Sexual Union facilitation and Esoteric Tantra.
