Today we’re talking about love: loving yourself, and how that love can help you love others. And to help me talk about it, I’m bringing in a leader in the field of feminine divine and spirituality, Meggan Watterson.
I first met Meggan at her first Reveal conference, where she told her incredible story about her studies, her pilgrimage to sites of the divine feminine, and her understanding of herself as a spiritual misfit.
Meggan’s new book, How to Love Yourself (and Sometimes Other People) was written with her co-author Lodro Rinzler, and is packed full of spiritual advice for modern love and relationships. The content is so accessible, and we share a lot of the same beliefs about how self love is the path to true love.
I think you’ll love our conversation all about loving yourself and others. Thanks for listening in.
