For we are in the deepest sense the victims and the instruments of cosmogonic “love”….Being a part, man cannot grasp the whole. He is at its mercy. He may assent to it, or rebel against it; but he is always caught up by it and enclosed within it. He is dependent upon it and sustained by it. Love is his light and his darkness, whose end he cannot see. “Love ceases not”—whether he speaks with the tongues of angels, or with scientific exactitude traces the life of the cell down to its uttermost source.
– Carl Jung
Join us for a conversation with Michael Lerner about how love heals and helps us live with life’s stresses, strains, suffering, and joys — in a way that makes us feel whole.
