Charlotte Kasl, best-selling author, spiritual practitioner, and therapist, brings a compassionate understanding to the anxiety and uneasiness of new love, and helps listeners discover their potential for vibrant human connection based on awareness, kindness, and honesty. She approaches the dating process as a means for awakening, reminding us that when we live by spiritual rules, we bring curiosity and a light heart to the romantic journey.

Filled with quotations from Zen, Sufi, and other wisdom traditions, and informed by the experiences of people from all walks of life, here is a relationship book that will appeal to audiences looking for more than a Venus-meets-Mars solution to the complex affairs of the heart.

    " This was recommended by well meaning friends - and I started to read it with great reluctance. Surprisingly found it to be a wise little book.
