Wisdom of a Broken Heart

Meditating on Heartbreak: a 4-week eCourse

When it comes to a broken heart, Buddhism has much to teach.

It has guidance for how to survive and make your heart stronger in the process.

It can help with the hallmarks of lost love: obsessive thinking, shame, and distrust in love itself.

Perhaps most important, it can help you love yourself once again and with this, all things are possible.

Join author Susan Piver for a four week online course on the mindful approach to heartbreak and love based on her book, The Wisdom of a Broken Heart.
