The 4 Noble Truths Of LOVE: A live conversation with Danielle LaPorte + Susan Piver

Susan Piver Love

I was in that romantic, soupy place. Chemicals firing. All that longing and neurosis stirred up at the beginning of something that you have so little control over but… oh, the craving to control. I was already tucked into bed that night but I thought, “Ah! The 4 Noble Truths Of Love!” So I hauled ass downstairs to get to my already-dogeared copy of Susan Piver’s new book. It’s medicine when love is driving you crazy, or you’re crazy in love.

The 4 Noble Truths Of Love is one of the most exquisitely wise—and comforting—relationship books I’ve ever read. It’s a lighthouse for the beautiful, murky, mess of intimacy; one of those keepers that you wear out and gift to every friend and say, “This will help.”

This book has permanent residency on my bedside table now so I can keep coming back for Susan’s compassionate reminders: that we are inherently good and our capacity to love is indestructible.

This conversation is going to be RICH. Susan is a deeply skilled teacher of Buddhist meditation, she is incredibly wise and hilarious. Mostly, she is all for love.

Please tune in to INSTAGRAM STORIES for this noble girlfriend and I getting into how-to’s of sane L-O-V-E.

One… Love,

Holidaze, holy days, and lightening it all up.

Ah, the holidays. Togetherness, twinkly lights, and… mass overconsumption, obligation, and so many opportunities for distraction. Most of us approach distraction as a time management issue—how we wrangle our to-do lists and goals.

Burn your journals. Maybe. Danielle LaPorte

Burn your journals. Maybe. Either way, here’s some inspiration on letting go.

I burned about 20 years of journals. Pages and pages of gut-red poetry and angst; cosmic gorgeousness and tender prayers; lists of wants, boyfriends (a loose term), and favourite perfumes. With every page I fed into the fireplace, I smiled. Thank you. Goodbye. Hellohhh here & now…

Danielle LaPorte How our business gives back

How our business gives back

When I started my own business, I made a decision to be public about our charitable giving. It was a practice I learned from Anita Roddick and the Canadian-based leaders (all women) of The Body Shop. The Body Shop was my first job-job and it baked the concept of a triple bottom line into my happily bleeding heart. The idea of sharing this is to inspire giving through business. I think we’re all gifters at heart. The flow of allowing and aiding is our natural way of being.

Been burned? Betrayal, denial, and the bloody beauty of it all.

Been burned? Betrayal, denial, and the bloody beauty of it all.

I’ve been betrayed — severely. Thank God. Betrayal is such a defining experience — it lays your heart bare, and that’s a bloody, good thing. Bloody good.

Being betrayed by another person is often (not always,) a reflection of how you were betraying yourself. It’s a lie looking back at you.
