Banyen's Description: 

In the Buddhist tradition, love is not just a feeling but a way of being present with ourselves and others. This book offers practical advice on how to cultivate love, how to deepen it, and how to let it flower in our lives.

We may feel great love for our partners, our children, and our friends, but how do we put that love into action so that others are nurtured by it? And what about loving ourselves? How can we develop greater self-acceptance and self-compassion? Meditation teacher Moh Hardin offers key insights and practices from the Buddhist tradition.

Topics include:

  • Simple Buddhist practices for awakening the heart
  • How and why to become your own best friend
  • Finding freedom from destructive patterns in relationships
  • Listening and speaking with love
  • Loving and letting go.

Good communication lies at the heart of a healthy relationship, and like learning to dance, communication requires space and time... When we flash generosity, in little drops, we are letting go of manipulation. In little drops, we are daring to be open. In little drops, we are learning to love more deeply.

Hardin ultimately introduces the inspiring idea of becoming a “bodhisattva warrior,” a person who commits to living open-heartedly and working to ease the suffering of the world. Written with unusual clarity, simplicity, and warmth, this little book contains a wealth of wisdom and guidance that could change your life.

A wonderfully heartfelt and heart-centered manual that shows how love can be fully do-able and be-able by all of us. I found this little book big in wisdom and deeply encouraging.” —David Richo, author of How to Be an Adult in Relationships

Moh Hardin is a senior teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist lineage.
