News & Reviews

“What does ‘mindful love’ look like? How does it feel to be a ‘mindful lover’? Andrea Miller and the editors at Shambhala Sun bring us meaningful and emotionally satisfying answers to these questions from some of the most widely-respected teachers and writers on the subject. This pithy volume will enlarge your understanding of what real love is and show you how you can experience it in your own relationship. The authors included in this compilation are more than just teachers of the art of love: they are the companions on the path who offer their own experiences to smooth our way.”—Spirituality & Health
