Real Love The Art of Mindful Connection

by Sharon Salzberg

Real Love The Art of Mindful Connection Synopsis

'In Real Love, one of the world's leading authorities on love tells us how to find it, how to nurture it, how to honor it-and most of all how to rethink it ... This book has the power to set your heart at peace.' -Susan Cain, author of Quiet What is love? Sharon Salzberg believes that love is a powerful healing force for us all, and that modern associations with romance and adoration are limiting. By redefining love, she helps us to recognize our desire for happiness and enhance our connections with each other. Real Love is a creative toolkit of mindfulness exercises and meditation techniques that can help you to truly engage with your present experience and create deeper love relationships - with yourself, your partner, friends and family, and with life itself. The book encourages us to strip away layers of negative habits and obstacles and to improve deeper connections, helping us to experience authentic love based on direct experience, rather than preconceptions.
