How to Love Yourself (and Sometimes Other People) is a smart, hip guide for spiritual seekers who want to experience more love and stability in all forms of relationships. Told from the unique vantage points of authors Meggan Watterson and Lodro Rinzler, this book explores staying anchored in the foundation of self-love as you navigate the natural (and often stormy) cycle of a relationship. Their dual perspectives as teachers and scholars of Christian mysticism and Buddhism make for a rich and fascinating dialogue that covers everything from sex, self-worth, deep friendships and falling in (and out of) love, to break-ups - and how to maintain an open heart through it all.
At its core, this book is about learning to love yourself no matter what. Meggan and Lodro suggest that you are worthy of love - both self-love and the love of others. They aren't experts on how to get that person to fall in love with you, nor are they experts on how to have 'the perfect relationship'. They are spiritual teachers who know that relationships have a life of their own, and can speak to the human element of what it means to experience them fully. In the process, they share deeply personal, revealing, honest anecdotes and spiritual practices to assist you with the inevitable ebb and flow of love in all its manifestations.

There is no perfection and pontificating here - just the beautiful, messy and wonderful truth about love, shared with great generosity. While both authors are deeply steeped in their mutual wisdom traditions, their greatest teachings are in the personal stories they share.

The book is wise, useful and also great fun to read. Lodro, from his long-term Buddhist practice, and Meggan, with her Christian mystic background, offer different ways of viewing love as the force that frees us to truly be ourselves and be happy. -- Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness The great thing about Lodro and Meggan writing a book about love is that you get perspectives from both a down-to-earth Buddhist dude, and a hot female mystic - AND! - double the jokes and love stories. The result is a lot of truth and modern wisdom on how to expand your capacity to love - in suffering, in sex, in separation, in spirit, in your very real life that could always be filled with more love. -- Danielle LaPorte, New York Times bestselling author of The Desire Map and The Fire Starter Sessions I so wish I had read this book when I was 18 and just starting out in the dating world. It would have saved me a lot of trouble and a boatload of Kleenex. Meggan and Lodro are not only totally sane in their approach to relationships, they're also practical and hilarious. This page-turner will most assuredly crack you up, but more importantly, it will ease your path to finding the love of your life, whether that turns out to be someone else or the person staring back at you when you look in the mirror. -- Kate Northrup, bestselling author of Money, A Love Story I am so grateful the universe shifted and brought both Meggan and Lodro together to share this sacred work. Loving yourself is no easy task but it's the most rewarding lesson.

What really helps us to navigate love is a good conversation with trusted friends, friends who don't judge us, friends who actually know what they are talking about. Meggan and Lodro both show their ability to be those friends, to themselves, to each other and to us as we read along. -- Ethan Nichtern, author of The Road Home Looking for love? Well, stop. Seriously, the search is over. Meggan and Lodro remind us that love is right here, within. There's nowhere we need to go or some better version of ourself we need to become. How To Love Yourself is that slap to the forehead that we all can use. This beautiful gem reminds us that we are love and therefore we don't need to wait for a partner to find love. We can get that party started right now - and then a partner can swing in and join us on this wild adventure of loving ourselves. No stress. No expectations. Just love. -- Kris Carr, New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Sexy Diet and Crazy Sexy Kitchen
