I want to know about the meaning of love beyond the realm of fantasy—beyond what we imagine can happen. I want to know love’s truths as we live them. —bell hooks

We all want love.

And, having and holding love and loving feelings can be challenging, especially if we've had challenging conditioning and experiences in our lives.

Join us in exploring how love can be when expressed in conjunction with the qualities of the Four Divine Abodes, or Brahma Viharas:

  • Equanimity/Resilience
  • Lovingkindness/Goodwill
  • Compassion
  • Inclusive Joy 

While grounded in these teachings and meditation practices, the course will be framed by short readings from bell hooks' all about love: new visions (available for purchase through the SFZC Online Bookstore); offering a blend of fierce feminist social criticism to ask us to transform our challenges into strength, manifesting the love and caring we want in our lives.

Open to all expressions of love: friends, partners, siblings, parent/child, roommates.

A shortened version of the popular four-week series "Love & the Four Divine Abodes."
