I found 'Love Changes Things', does change things. It's an important resource for how we can stay in the space of love in our daily interactions.

Her unusual, perhaps unique, approach to creating change has taken her to many parts of the world and into the corridors of power where she's been influential in important ways. She'd be the first to say that she wasn't alone in her efforts; she had plenty of help, from on-the-ground workers to psychics, dreams, and gu ...more
