Welcome to Where the Love Lies
Where the Love Lies is an exploration and an invitation – to feel fiercely into the the depths of human emotion. Our mission is to expand our capacity to feel the full spectrum of emotions – joy, sorrow, anger, & grief – and to explore where, within each emotion, the love lies.
We are passionate people, deep feelers, courageous in our compassion for others and for ourselves. We believe in a world where speaking of our deepest pain is welcomed and applauded with the same warmth and care as sharing our greatest joys and accomplishments.
We believe in a world where conversations about loss, sorrow, and grief are shared amongst families, friends, and colleagues – without shame or fear. We believe that only through feeling fiercely the full spectrum of emotions, can we truly live & love.
