with Michael Lerner
The healing power of love is beyond comprehension. Yet love is also one of the most complex experiences in life, yielding pleasure and pain in equal measure. Join Smith Center Co-Founder Michael Lerner to explore love in poetry, sacred texts, and archetypal psychology, drawing on Rumi, Hafiz, Jung, Hillman and others.
