Episode 981: Making Marriage Work Takes Work; Getting Stronger at the Broken Places Part 2

August 21, 2018

Guests: Linda Bloom, LCSW and Charlie Bloom, MSW have been married since 1972. Trained as psychotherapists and relationship counselors, they have worked with individuals, couples, groups, and organizations since 1975.

They have lectured and taught at learning institutes throughout the USA, including the Esalen Institute, the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, 1440Multiversity, the California Institute for Integral Studies, the Meridian University, John F. Kennedy University, the Crossings, Omega institute, the Institute for Transpersonal Psychology, Sonoma State University, University of California at Berkeley Extension Program, the Hoffman Institute, and the World Health Organization.

They have offered seminars throughout the world, including China, Japan, Indonesia, Denmark, Sweden, India, Brazil, and many other locations.

Linda and Charlie Bloom are both professional relationship counselors and seminar leaders, but it has not insulated them from the same difficulties that their clients and students experience in everyday life. In this, their fourth book, That Which Doesn’t Kill Us: How One Couple Got Stronger at the Broken Places (Sacred Life Publishers, on sale April 9, 2018), the story of the Blooms’ journey through a series of ordeals reveals how they managed to reconstruct a relationship from the ashes of their broken dreams. It is both inspiring and instructive, demonstrating to the reader the power of true commitment in the face of great odds and enormous obstacles.
Presented in chapters which are written alternately in each of their voices, Linda and Charlie offer the reader an extraordinary window into their interior and interpersonal experiences. And despite the occurrence of frequent setbacks, they eloquently and poignantly manage to fulfill the demands of the recovery process. It may best be described in the words of one of the book’s dozen-plus endorsers, Bernie S. Siegel, M.D., author of the bestselling Love, Medicine & Miracles: “The Blooms have found the solution to learning from and becoming stronger due to life’s difficulties. Let them become your coaches through this book.”
