Twenty years ago, two spiritual seekers met at a workshop about conscious dying. What happened next is the extraordinary foundation for To Love and Be Loved —a life-changing program about what it means to be alive and in love.
Together ever since that first day, Stephen and Ondrea Levine poured all of the wisdom, compassion, and courage they gained from their work with the suffering and grief-stricken into the mystery of their own relationship. The result is a beautiful, unexpected unfolding, a teaching that transcends the anguish of existence to show us the way to God—through the darkest nights of our most intimate relationships.
In the rich and forbidding depths of our personal pain, the Levines teach, lies the essence of intimacy, not only with one another, but with God. This is why true commitment requires us to “swim across the reservoir of each other’s grief.” Stephen and Ondrea lead you beyond psychological explanations and show how couples together can immerse themselves in the “ocean of compassion”—where you will discover how to face and overcome the fear that closes your heart, and replace it with mercy: the key to creativity, freedom, and love.
Through honest, real-life sharing, To Love and Be Loved teaches you how to discover the greatest gift you can ever have: forgiveness—for yourself and your lover.
The Difficult Yoga of Relationship
Why are so few yogis and mystics committed to a human partner? The Levines suggest that it’s because they haven’t recognized the profound value of so high a practice as the difficult yoga of partnership. Our intimate relationships, they teach, actually contain a complete blueprint for spiritual realization. With exercises, meditations, and examples, they demonstrate how to decipher and use this priceless map.
To Love and Be Loved brings you the crowning insights from these pioneering teachers. Out of the crucible of their own experience, Stephen and Ondrea Levine point out a proven way to true transformation—through the spiritual challenge of your own relationship

Amazing teachers of the heart Review by ben
I have never found more merciful, loving teachings than those of Stephen and Ondrea Levine. They had a wholly amazing partnership and they convey how to be in a blessed partnership beautifully here. I love this CD set and highly recommend it. (Posted on May 23, 2016)

Stephen and Andrea are two of the wisest, kindest teachers out there. I found this wonderfully helpful for intimate relationships. (Posted on May 8, 2016)
Review for To Love and Be Loved Review by David Roche
This has become my most disappointing download to date. Both of the Levines appear to need to convince the listener of the rightness of their approach to achieving loving relationships and in doing so come off as attempting to "sell" me a product. I find this approach off-putting and have only made it through half of the download although I've made several attempts to stay with it to the end. (Posted on May 29, 2011)
Review for To Love and Be Loved Review by Michelle
This is pure wisdom. Nothing I've ever read or heard on the subject of intimacy and relationships even comes close. Thank you Nani (my former therapist) for sharing this with me many years ago. I'm now going on over 10 years of marriage and 2 children. We are still growing in intimacy, compassion and acceptance of each other. (Posted on March 9, 2010)
Review for To Love and Be Loved Review by john hanbury
i have the tape version of this teaching. it speaks volumes about relationship, the places we get stuck, invest in, defend, own, think of as final destinations and the pain caused by holding to them. both stephen and ondrea are gifted and deeply spiritual. it is their long standing relationship with each other and with others that really shines through here (Posted on May 16, 2009)
