In How to Love, Zen Master Thich Nhat
Hanh brings his
signature clarity, compassion, and humor to the thorny question of how
to love. He distills one of our strongest emotions down to four
essentials: you can only love another when you feel true love for
yourself; love is understanding; understanding brings compassion; deep
listening and loving speech are key ways of showing our love.
Pocket-sized, with original two color illustrations by Jason DeAntonis, How to Love
shows that when we feel closer to our loved ones, we are also more
connected to the world as a whole. With sections on Love vs. Need, Being
in Love, Reverence, Intimacy, Children and Family, Reconciling with
Parents, and more, How to Love includes meditations you can do alone or with your partner to go deep inside and expand your own capacity to love.
Scientific studies indicate that meditation contributes tremendously to well-being, general health, and longevity. How to Love
is a unique gift for those who want a comprehensive yet simple guide to
understanding the many different kinds of love, along with meditative
practices that can expand the understanding of and capacity for love,
appropriate for those practicing in any spiritual tradition, whether
seasoned practitioners or new to meditation.
