In this session, we connect with the experience of receiving love and being seen in our deep worth beyond limiting thoughts of ourselves. Then we let that experience evoke our capacity to extend love similarly to others around us, to see them in their deep worth beyond limiting thoughts of them. We thereby extend loving care to others not with an isolated sense of self but as an extension of the same flow of care in which we are held. We thereby learn to see others as we are seen, to love others as we are loved, to know others as we are known. By reconnecting with this simple practice often in our daily lives, an increasingly stable attitude and energy of care and compassion can imbue our relationships and work with others.
