a note about love…

What is it? What does it take to find it? Love is such a hard word to describe, yet everyone knows what it is. We feel it. We see it all around us. We experience it. We all have a common shared belief in it, but very few have been able to put into words anything that captures it fully.

For poems and short stories on love, check out Rumi’s writings and Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet. For overall love, The Mastery of Love is the best we’ve come across. If you have any suggested readings on love please let us know.


The Mastery of Love

Don Miguel Ruiz

Don Miguel Ruiz’s books are some of the most beautiful on the subject of love. In “The Mastery of Love,” he illuminates the fear-based beliefs and assumptions that undermine love and lead to suffering and drama in our relationships. Ruiz shows us how to heal our emotional wounds, recover the freedom and joy that are our birthright, and restore the spirit of playfulness that is vital to loving relationships. We always recommend The Mastery of Love as a great place to start.

The first book to reveal in the West the Taoist techniques that enable women to cultivate and enhance their sexual energy. Mantak Chia believes that the foundation of healing love is the cultivation, transformation, and circulation of sexual energy, known as jing. Chia guides you to understand this natural energy force and learn to use it to lessen menstrual pain, heal your body and internal organs, and achieve full-body orgasms.
