Read Real Love: The Art of Mindful Connection Online Free - You are a person worthy of love. You don’t have to do anything to deserve all the love in the world.
Real Love is a creative tool kit of mindfulness exercises and meditation techniques that 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.
Sharon Salzberg, a leading expert in Lovingkindness[GR1] meditation, encourages us to strip away layers of negative habits and obstacles, helping us to experience authentic love based on direct experience, rather than preconceptions. Across three sections, Sharon explains how to dispel cultural and emotional habits, and direct focused care and attention to recapture the essence of what it is to love and be loved.
With positive reflections and practices, Sharon teaches us how to shift the responsibilities of the love that we give and receive to rekindle the powerful healing force of true connection. By challenging myths perpetuated by popular culture, we can undo the limited definitions that reduce love to simply romance or passion, and give the heart a much needed tune-up to connect ourselves to the truest experience of love in our daily lives.

Just like anger isn't personal, neither is love. We tend to focus our love on a romantic partner or family, but this book broadens our not...

I really liked the subtitle of this book - the art of mindful connection. Learning how to connect with self, Self, world, and others is a challenging skill and Sharon Salzberg makes it an approachable challenge. She interweaves many schools of thought: Jungian, yogic, Buddhist, and common sense....
