Love, self-love and healthy relationships are something that everyone desires. We believe that it is through Love that our hearts open to the possibilities of Life.
Below are some of the key books and lectures that we’ve used to teach about the power of love in your lives and in your relationships.
In addition to reading the book and/or listening to the podcasts, some of the podcasts have study and discussion questions that go with them. This makes it possible to host a discussion group and work through some of these spiritual topics with others.
