How to Love Yourself (And Sometimes Other People)

Most of us think that love is something out there - something to be attained - yet the Buddha taught that underneath our layers of self-doubt and criticism is peace and love within each of us. Join best-selling author and Shambhala Buddhist teacher Lodro Rinzler for an exploration of how meditation is the tool that allows us to access more love in our lives, first for ourselves and then in our dating life, long-term relationships, sex lives, and even in heartbreak. Lodro maps the Four Noble Truths of Buddhism to the way we consider relationships and highlights how the Four Limitless Qualities give us the energy to love more fully on and off the meditation cushion.
