We are born alone and we will die alone. There is no avoiding ‘aloneness’. This feeling of loneliness often drives us to relationships.

To explore conscious relationships even more deeply, listen to Doug & Catherine’s free ‘Conscious Love’ audio classes, available on their online platform PlanetDharma.
