Science has eliminated love from its analysis of reality.

We cannot know ultimate reality though highlighting the mind and dismissing the heart or vice-versa.

This talk will explore the relationship of love to ultimate reality.

    Daily Meditation Recordings, with Ulla Koenig – Week of May 9, 2022

    This week’s topic is Disentangle the Net of Needs. We all have needs. Existential needs, needs for safety, connection, spirituality and much more.
