Ask Dr. Bunny. What is an interfaith wedding? Marc Bachrach, guest.

Interfaith Cantor, Marc Bachrach, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss interfaith weddings.  Do you know what an interfaith wedding is?  Marc shares how he is able to successfully create a wedding ceremony & celebration for couples, and their families, who are from different faiths.

A marriage ceremony is two things – it is ritual and ceremony to create a profound celebration of the fact that a couple has found each other.  This celebration is also an invitation for the guests to bear witness and to strengthen their own bonds and support the couple.

Marc explains how he meets with couples before the wedding to find out what they want (and don’t want) in their ceremony, to form a bond with them, and let them know that he will there for them through the good parts of their marriage, and the challenges, as well.

Tune in as Marc shares some great stories & sings a very special song for us, too!  A great interview!

About Interfaith Cantor, Marc Bachrach:

Couples hire Cantor Marc to brighten their wedding ceremonies with his unique blend of warmth, spiritual “gravitas”, and light-hearted humor.

Rich, bass-baritone  singing and chanting, accompanied by guitar and mandolin, are unique additions many  couples choose Cantor Marc to provide, especially during the processional.

“Every couple, every family and group of friends is unique.”

Cantor Marc loves connecting with them and crafting a joyous celebration of marriage — an intimate sacred space filled with love, gratitude, and heartfelt emotions.

Cantor Marc makes sure everyone understands all the ritual elements and language that he’s helped the couple pick for their nuptials. Each person there is made to feel welcome and included — in some ceremonies, they join Cantor Marc by singing simple phrases. Some wedding parties even join him during the closing benediction, raising their hands together in the ancient Rabbinical Blessing, now universally known as The Vulcan Salute- “Live Long and Prosper!”

For 40 years, Cantor Marc has officiated in Southern California synagogues and at private ceremonies from Kauai to New York. He has served as the spiritual leader of Makom Ohr Shalom, an Encino synagogue.

Cantor Marc has co-officiated interfaith ceremonies with priests, ministers, Buddhist monks, and kahuna shamans!

His 8 years as the host and producer of his own Los Angeles afternoon radio talk shows, and his ongoing voice-over work in recording studios are the reason he smiles appreciatively when wedding guests thank him after the ceremony, exclaiming “You Should Be on the RADIO with that Voice!”

Cantor Marc’s secular performing careers as a Comedy Hypnotist and a Musical Entertainer in venues all over the world, along with his private practice in hypnotherapy, have more than prepared him to deal calmly and creatively with any “surprise” at a wedding … from the smallest glitch or gust of wind, to (G-d Forbid!) life-threatening emergencies.

The most common praise Cantor Marc’s couples offer:

“You really understood us, and what we did, and didn’t want.

You ‘got us”, and made our wedding even more special than we thought was possible.

Ask Dr. Bunny. Dottie’s Sweet Delights? Patty Brown, guest

Patty Brown, Master Confectioner and owner of Dottie’s Sweet Delights, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss all things sweet!  Patty shares the fun and interesting story about how her love of cooking turned into a wonderfully sweet business.

Dottie’s Sweet Delights was named after Patty’s mom, Dottie, who taught Patty how to cook and nurtured her love of cooking.

Patty tells us what makes her candies special and what sets them apart from other candies on the market. She also tells us why she uses only premium ingredients (Organic sugar! Pure vanilla!), and why this is so very important.

Tune in for a fun & taste-tempting interview!

About Patty Brown:

“I’ve always loved to cook for my friends and family, and I’ve always dreamed of having my own food related business. I grew up on a family farm outside of Portland, Oregon where my father was a hard working beef & dairy farmer, we participated in 4-H and my family ‘lived off the land’. We had an enormous vegetable garden and many fruit trees, so our summers were kept busy harvesting and preserving fruits & vegetables. Meanwhile, my Dad managed the ‘hay hands’ who assisted him with the alfalfa harvest. The hay hands often raved about the great meals they were served in our home, which were always followed by dessert. Christmas in our home was more about the holiday cookies and other treats we made only during the holiday season than the presents under the tree. My mother was an amazing cook, and I am so grateful for the time she spent teaching me her secrets. As a result, I became very confident in the kitchen.

I didn’t grow up making toffee. In fact, I began making toffee for Christmas gifts and other presents under 10 years ago. After I started giving the gift of toffee to my friends, they raved about it!  One evening while at the home of a close friend, she exclaimed “You should taste Patty’s toffee. It’s like crack cocaine in our house!” One of the gentlemen present asked if he could order boxes of toffee to give as Christmas gifts for his clients, and a business was born!

I hope you enjoy your Dottie’s Sweet Delights products! If you’d like let us know what you think, or if you want to learn more about us, please click here to send us an email about your experience.”

Sincerely,
Patty – Master Confectioner

SNAP! Unhypnotizing Hypnotherapy. Overcoming Fear and Negative Self-Talk. Loya Riggan, guest.

Loya Riggan

As we strolled through our archives of past interviews, reviewing the people and stories that have inspired and uplifted us, this wonderful interview caught our attention. Overcoming fear and negative self-talk is surely something a lot of us could use some assistance with right now! Check it out!

Hypnotherapist, Loya Riggan, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss… Hypnotherapy!  Loya specializes in helping her clients overcome feeling fearful & negative self-talk.  She has clients all over the world – Poland, France, Australia, and more – as well as all across the U.S.A.!  Loya’s goal was to be global and she sure has accomplished that!  She does her hypnotherapy sessions online, using Zoom for a conference, or on the phone, which has allowed her to reach clients worldwide.

Loya shares the story of what drew her to hypnosis, how hypnosis helped her immensely, and how she became a hypnotherapist. 

A fascinating and uplifting interview!

About Loya Riggan:

I’m Loya Riggan and I’m a Certified Consulting Hypnotist and NLP Practitioner with the National Guild of Hypnotists. I work with my clients on a wide variety of items utilizing hypnotherapy via the phone, while my clients are comfy and relaxed in their own home! I am a former native of the Pacific Northwest and am proud to now call Las Vegas, Nevada home, along with my amazing husband Larry.

After spending the last few decades climbing the corporate ladder in some impressive companies, I knew it was finally time to do something that I’ve been dreaming of doing since my 20’s…. For many years I’d yearned to do something helpful for others who’ve experienced trauma or abuse as children, as I knew there was so much I could do professionally to alleviate the negative impact they were living with. Finally, after 20-plus years, it came together and fell perfectly into place and I started Dynamic Mindset Hypnosis. My mission is to help others live their best life possible by working together to overcome the impact of the trauma and abuse such as weight gain, anxiety & panic, self-limiting and negative thought patterns, fear of life, etc., in order to be free and live in an abundance of health and happiness, while loving their life and, most importantly, themselves!

I look forward to helping unleash your greatest life possible!

Ask Dr. Bunny. Art as a form of communication? Gerald Zwers, guest.

Artist Gerald Zwers joins Dr. Bunny to discuss art and so much more. Gerald is an incredibly versatile artist, and a wonderful human. He generally does several hundred pieces of art each year, and one year he did over a thousand!

Gerald gets into the spirituality of each piece of art and he explains that he sees art as his ‘hammer’, or his tool for building. He also sees his art as a form of communication, from one spirit to another. It’s not technique driven for him, as much as communication driven.

Gerald is fascinated by all the different forms & facets of art, and how we encapsulate knowledge & ideas.

Gerald also discusses the way that the Covid-19 quarantine has affected the art world, as well as his own world, and the things he has done to adjust during this unprecedented time. It truly has been a time of learning, re-configuring and re-invention for all.  The quarantine came with a whole set of new challenges, but it has also been a magical time and Gerald shares what the silver lining has been for him.

This interview is so enlightening and uplifting. It will have you looking at the world in a different way.  Listen in and prepare to be inspired!
