Original Love is a new approach to the ancient path of meditation…
…offering a broad training based primarily on traditional teachings of Zen and early Buddhism. Through finding the intrinsic energy, peace and joy that are already within us, we can become increasingly clear-sighted and open-hearted beings. Gradually, and sometimes suddenly, through shared practice, we start to catch glimpses of the original love that is always here.
