Also this week, Sharon reflected in her On Being Column on what inspired her to begin writing “Lovingkindness” and what that process was like for her.

“May you know the fearlessness of an open heart. May you never meet anyone you consider a stranger, and know that no matter what, you are not alone. May you have compassion for others’ suffering and joy in their delights. May you be free to give and receive love.”

Check back throughout the #Lovingkindness Month for more exclusive offerings. You can also join the virtual celebration via Sharon’s social media channels: Facebook / Twitter / Instagram
