Told from the alternating vantage points of authors Meggan Watterson and Lodro Rinzler, How to Love Yourself (and Sometimes Other People) reminds us that love isn't something we have to earn. All of us are deeply and intrinsically worthy of love - not only love we hope to receive from others, but the love we give to ourselves - and this book offers the insight and practical tools we need to stay firmly grounded in self-love as we ride out the natural (and often stormy) cycles of relationships. Meggan and Lodro's Unique perspectives as teachers and scholars of Christian mysticism and Buddhism respectively make for a rich and lively dialogue that draws on wisdom sources like the Gospel of Mary Magdalene and the Four Noble Truths, along with funny, revealing stories from their own love lives and their deep friendship with each other. You'll find guidance for embracing single life, dating with an open heart, and thriving in lasting love; meditations and practices for calm abiding, 'disciplined hope,' and connecting to the source of love within you; and tips on everything from sex, self-worth, and nourishing friendships to navigating breakups and learning to truly love yourself. Ultimately, you'll be able to see your ideal partner in a new light - not as someone who 'completes' you, but as someone who mirrors back to you your own wholeness. 'Meggan and Lodro offer the most treasured gift-a pathway to learn to love yourself no matter what.' Gabrielle Bernstein, New York Times best-selling author of Miracles Now
