In this talk given at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in 2007, we explore our innate capacity for love, compassion, generosity, and forgiveness. Yes, we can develop these qualities, but they are also our true nature, and when the stuff that gets in the way of them is released, they shine.
Because of the shame and unworthiness many of us carry, loving ourselves can be a particularly powerful practice. It opens the pathway to the gold of our natural love. Then it can spill over to bless all we touch.
