There is a natural desire in all of us to fully be ourselves, to live and love from our deepest essential nature. We feel this desire most keenly in our longing for authentic human intimacy. Unfortunately, painful and frightening experiences often lead us to withdraw from the gift of our own luminous beauty. Instead of cultivating our capacity for intimacy, we hide from ourselves and others, too anxious, depressed, or numb to honor and embody our true radiance.
