One morning at work, two colleagues of mine, both with rather strong personalities, got into a lively quarrel in front of me. Dalila*, who had initiated the dispute, having finished her diatribe, went out to the terrace, slamming the door. Tina*, with whom I had shared the link to The Gentle Art of Blessing video the day before – gentleartofblessing.org/the-video, angrily followed her. A few minutes later she came back towards me, much calmer. Looking at me she said: “All of a sudden I thought of the video you sent me and I just blessed Dalila!” Early in the afternoon she returned with a huge smile, sharing with me her surprise at having received a heartfelt apology from Dalila and her sense of wonder at having experienced the efficacy of blessing.
