What is true love, anyway? Discover what it means to truly love. You might be surprised!

How To Find The Path To True Love

In this workshop, we will draw on our personal experiences and some of Polly’s favorite poetry to respond to the question: What is love, anyway? Differentiating love from desire, romance, attachment bonds, and idealization, we have a clearer sense of whether we are truly loving our partners, children, parents and friends or whether we are in an unconscious identification or enmeshment that results in one of us feeling used, cheated or erased.

Through mindfulness exercises and “virtual dreaming,” we will explore our inner world of love, loss and discovery in reading and writing together.

 "Polly Young-Eisendrath illuminates love as a path—not a goal—of self and mutual discovery that goes to the very heart of our nature." -Barry Magid

The workshop will be lead by POLLY YOUNG-EISENDRATH, Ph.D., who is the author of 15 books, including The Self-Esteem Trap, The Resilient Spirit, and Women and Desire, and is a Jungian analyst, psychologist, and clinical associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Vermont. A frequent speaker and facilitator at conferences and a teacher of mindfulness, she maintains a clinical and consulting practice in central Vermont.

Her most recent book, The Present Heart: A Memoir of Love, Loss and Discovery is an unsentimental meditation on the healing power of love in the face of early onset Alzheimer’s that attempts to answer the question “What is love, anyway?”

Polly is dedicated to an interpersonally sustainable and ecologically sane world in which we recognize, moment-by-moment, that we are webbed in a network of relationships and conditions that require compassion and kindness for ourselves and others if we are to become confident about our lives.
