It’s that time of year where the idea of love is glorified through romantic comedies and scenes of people pouring their hearts out for a chance to have a partner to spend the rest of their lives with. This notion of one-true, everlasting love--POP! Susan Piver, prolific writer on modern relationships, brings you back to the reality of what love really is and how to truly grasp it once and for all.
Susan’s the New York Times bestselling author of nine books, her most recent, The Four Noble Truths of Love: Buddhist Wisdom for Modern Relationships, was released in May 2018. Susan has been a practicing Buddhist since 1995 and graduated from a Buddhist Seminary in 2004. She’s an internationally acclaimed meditation teacher known for her ability to translate ancient practices into modern life. Her work has been highly featured across all media including The Oprah Show and The New York Times, and in 2011, Susan launched The Open Heart Project, which is becoming the largest virtual mindfulness community in the world.
Get ready to sink into a space of love within every relationship in your life--starting now!

Your loving adjustment. The first noble truth in Buddhism describes how nothing in life is permanent. Everything changes; nothing stays the same–good or bad. It’s not a concept that’s new, so why is change so painful for us? The TRUTH is this . . . [16:14].
Your loving discomfort. It’s completely natural to have expectations. We live in a world where we expect people to be kind and honest to us--and why shouldn’t we? But how do you respond when your expectations are shattered? Next time this happens, turn it all around by asking yourself these TWO questions . . . [22:36].
Your loving embrace. Here’s what we know: the idea of love--the part where butterflies soar and everything is perfect--is fleeting. People change as well as your surrounding environments. So what’s the inside scoop for keeping that ‘magic’ alive in a relationship? The SECRET sauce is this . . . [36:59].
Tune in and turn the volume up for a dose of inspiration and life lessons. You're never more than One Idea Away from a whole, new reality.
