  • How to Be an Adult in Relationships

    Working with the Five Keys to Mindful Loving

    Taught by David Richo

    Love is not so much a feeling as a way of being present—with unconditional attention, acceptance, appreciation, affection, and allowing others to be as they are. When our ego gets in the way of our giving and receiving love—in the form of judgment, fear, and control—we can use mindfulness to return to loving presence. This is how a spiritual practice builds our capacity to become more loving and more open to love. It’s also how we can view love itself as our practice. In this online course, psychotherapist and Shambhala author David Richo presents the five keys to mindful loving and teaches you how to expand your capacity in relationships by embracing these five touchstones.
