033: Love — How Do You Find It Within You?
When is the first time you can remember experiencing love? Do you view heaven as a religious place or as a spiritual utopia? Host, Mike Domitrz, and CAST members Rick Clemons and Dr. Jenn Gunsaullus unpack the concepts of self-love and unconditional love to uncover what it takes to come from a mindful place of love - within us.
The quote that inspired this episode is “‘The kingdom of heaven is within you.’ So we should ask the question to ourselves what this means.” from Breakfast with Buddha, by Roland Merullo.
