So full of heart and honesty and pure connecting Review by Kristi


I've never before heard such compassionate and deep, real, honest, true heart-FULL words on loving from our center, loving our own selves in order to love the other fully...

I would recommend it for anyone and everyone who is in relationship not just romantically but in any kind of relationship, as the ideas for communication and honesty and speaking from the heart can be related to any kind of loving connection with another.

Even Charlotte Kasl's voice is so soothing and loving, it's as if I'm listening to the voice of a teacher, guide, compassionate friend I've always hoped for...

She isn't preaching, she isn't telling us how it has to be done, she is sharing her experiences, as a therapist, as a researcher, as a listener of the heart, as a humyn living and learning through her own personal stuff...

She is speaking to encourage others to live from their center, from their heart, in order that more peace and real love can be experienced in the world. (Posted on July 12, 2018)

Review for If the Buddha Were in Love Review by Openmind


Excellent! This (along with mindfulness practice) would have saved my marriage.

You don't have to be a Buddhist to benefit from this fantastic series. This is about relationships and how we create our own chaos and pain (explained well by Buddhist principles) and ruin our relationships.

If you're ready to move past blaming your ex or looking to improve your current relationship, this is definitely worth a listen. (Posted on July 30, 2014)
