First, A Hand to the Heart

Some days, the process of loving more has zero to do with extending a hand outward: it has everything to do with placing a hand on your heart.

The LoveMore Movement encourages you to take care of yourself before you take care of others. We encourage you to help build a community that will lead by example. Some days, we may fall apart. And that's ok. Some days, we may stand really tall. That's ok too. Tonight, I went to meditation feeling like my nervous system was completely askew.Tonight, when I walked into Against the Stream, what I found was community. It was safe to just be. My had could rest on my heart, I could show myself compassion, and as a result, I was able to show up for those around me.

“Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.”  Pema Chodron

    Beauty-full post & quote Sarit! & I totally agree,,,

    since I was a kid, I too always wanted to face the pain rather than run away thru all the endless Disneylands of it all, & its a precious balance to find the truth on the other side & not forgetting the compassion for own selves as well-

    & beautiful shot too! Isn’t that Laura from ATS too?.. can tell she’s a beauty with heart too!
    Greetings to you & Joseph & keep up the great work & posts!.. c u’s on the ‘west side sometime…

    all best in the infinite dharmas.. :)

      Thank you so much! Facing the shadow side is so important. I’m grateful I’ve been able to keep pushing forward. Nope, that’s Rachel Kann, one the most incredible spoken word artists I’ve ever met! Check her out: http://rachelkann.com/

      Lots of love,
