Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author.

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 life itself.

Sharon Salzberg, a leading expert in lovingkindness 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.

    "Incredible book about love in all forms"

    I thought this book was all about relationships, but it discusses love from all angles. From self love, to loving your partner, to rebuilding relationships and letting go of anger. I learned so much from this book and think everyone can relate to it.

    "Talking with no substance."

    Drivel. The performance was nasal and droning. I was instantly put off. All 2 hours were like having a splinter in the roof of my mouth. I tried to give it a few to see if it picked up but, not happening. One more liberal quote and I would have jumped into traffic.
