About the Author
Suzanne Toro is a dynamic mother of two who studied with Deepak Chopra, and has worked extensively in the areas of meditation, yoga and wellness (she is a certified Primordial Meditation Instructor). She's also a successful entertainment executive, serving as the Creative Visionary & Strategist for media production for Apl.de.Ap of the Black Eyed Peas, one of the most successful bands in the music industry today. Toro has suffered many hardships -- sexual abuse, losing a child, and dealing with a loved one's serious illness -- but she's used each experience as an opportunity to learn more about herself and earn a real life PhD in personal growth. With a young family, Toro needed to find a practical, realistic way to begin her own healing and liberation process. By employing simple tools in her everyday life, she was able to connect with her inner self and release the pain that led her back to her true self. She is committed to embodying authenticity and practicing what she preaches by reaching out to local, national and global communities to share her vision. Bare Naked Bliss provides simple tools anyone can use to cope with stress and pain, break down mental barriers, find deeper connections and discover their inner joyful, authentic self. The teachings of the book are extended through inspiring poetry, guided meditations and music created by Toro with Apl.de.Ap, singer/songwriter Anne Heaton, and other professional musicians. Toro has also developed "Bare Naked Dinners:" interactive dining experiences allowing participants to explore their inner truths through open communication and laughter shared while enjoying gourmet natural cuisine. In addition, she is currently serving as a liaison ("spirit bridge") between the mind-body natural approach to healing and traditional medicine. Working with doctors like Deepak Chopra, David Simon, the Simonton Cancer Center and others, she's become an authentic voice of their work, communicating their messages with grace and providing practical ways to integrate them into everyday life, together with her own meditation and wellness work. What if there was a way to let go of stress and suffering that was available to all and easily incorporated into daily life? Instead of spending thousands on therapy and psychotropic drugs, having to compromise one's religious beliefs or traveling around the world to find the secret to enlightenment, we just need to discover our own Bare Naked Bliss.
