Paperback, 320 pages.
Best selling author and beloved meditation teacher Sharon Salzberg explores the limited definitions of "love" and guides her readers through the process of stripping away layers of habit to find a truer meaning of love, or "real love." We all yearn for a deeper connection with others, yet often feel trapped by our sense of isolation, anger, envy, and other forms of aversion. Working from the inside out, you must first learn to love yourself — only then will you be able to leave these feelings behind and share your love with the rest of the world.
This useful guidebook book includes the following tools to help achieve a deeper connection with those around us:
- Mindfulness exercises
- Meditation techniques
- Interactive applications
Divided into four sections, each addressing a distinct experience of "real love:" love for the self, love for another individual, love for all beings, and love for life itself.
