Editorial Reviews

Review

“How to Love Yourself (and Sometimes Other People) is a modern-day guide to all things relationship— starting with numero uno—yourself. I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like more love in their life. And last time I checked that was everyone on the planet.”

— Christiane Northrup, M.D., New York Times best-selling author of Goddesses Never Age

“How to Love Yourself is one of the best books I’ve read on the topic of relationships. This book translates life-changing spiritual principles in a hip and relevant way. Meggan and Lodro offer the most treasured gift; a pathway to learn to love yourself no matter what. I recommend this book to anyone ready to give, receive, and embody love.” 

— Gabrielle Bernstein, New York Times best-selling author of Miracles Now

 “This is a new kind of self-help book. There is no perfection and pontificating here—just the beautiful, messy, and wonderful truth about love, shared with great generosity. While both authors are deeply steeped in their mutual wisdom traditions, their greatest teachings are in the personal stories they share. No matter what is (or isn’t) happening in your life, Lodro and Meggan help you to see that your whole life is your love life.”

— Susan Piver, New York Times best-selling author of The Wisdom of a Broken Heart and Start Here Now

How to Love Yourself is an illuminating look at love—a quality hard to figure out even as we are taught that it makes the world go ‘round. The book is wise, useful, and also great fun to read. Lodro, from his long-term Buddhist practice, and Meggan, with her Christian mystic background, offer different ways of viewing love as the force that frees us to truly be ourselves, and be happy.”

— Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness

“The great thing about Lodro and Meggan writing a book about love is that you get perspectives from both a down-to-earth Buddhist dude, and a hot female mystic—AND!—double the jokes and love stories. The result is a lot of truth and modern wisdom on how to expand your capacity to love—in suffering, in sex, in separation, in spirit, in your very real life that could always be filled with more love.”

— Danielle LaPorte, New York Times best-selling author of The Desire Map and The Fire Starter Sessions

“I so wish I had read this book when I was 18 and just starting out in the dating world. It would have saved me a lot of trouble and a boatload of Kleenex. Meggan and Lodro are not only totally sane in their approach to relationships, they’re also practical and hilarious. This page-turner will most assuredly crack you up, but more importantly, it will ease your path to finding the love of your life, whether that turns out to be someone else or the person staring back at you when you look in the mirror.”

— Kate Northrup, best-selling author of Money, A Love Story

“I am so grateful the universe shifted and brought both Meggan and Lodro together to share this sacred work. Loving yourself is no easy task but it’s the most rewarding lesson. How To Love Yourself (and Sometimes Other People) is a manual that helps you dive deep into the cave of your own heart so you can become your own beloved. This step-by-step guide helps you crack open the most auspicious part of you so that you can walk safely in love. If you are ready to courageously leap out of fear and into unconditional love, this is the book for you.”

— Kyle Gray, best-selling author of Angel Prayers

 “Meggan Watterson and Lodro Rinzler have written a modern-day spiritual ‘he said, she said’ as they guide us along the path to loving ourselves fiercely, ultimately giving way to loving others and being loved. Intimate, entertaining, provocative, and revealing, How To Love Yourself (and Sometimes Other People) is for all seekers of self-love and self-acceptance. Give your heart a gift and immerse yourself in the wisdom and lessons this book has to offer—you just may find love where you least expect it.”

— Nancy Levin, best-selling author of Jump . . . And Your Life Will Appear

 “How To Love Yourself (And Sometimes Other People) has real modern gems in it, and the down-to-earth and complementary voices of its authors, Meggan and Lodro—both young experts in their own spiritual fields—leaves you feeling like they are totally present with you as you read these pages. What really helps us to navigate love is a good conversation with trusted friends, friends who don’t judge us, friends who actually know what they are talking about. Meggan and Lodro both show their ability to be those friends, to themselves, to each other, and to us as we read along.”

— Ethan Nichtern, author of The Road Home

“Looking for love? Well, stop. Seriously, the search is over. Meggan and Lodro remind us that love is right here, within. There’s nowhere we need to go or some better version of ourself we need to become. How To Love Yourself is that slap to the forehead that we all can use. This beautiful gem reminds us that we are love and therefore we don’t need to wait for a partner to find love. We can get that party started right now––and then a partner can swing in and join us on this wild adventure of loving ourselves. No stress. No expectations. Just love.”

— Kris Carr, New York Times best-selling author of Crazy Sexy Diet and Crazy Sexy Kitchen

Who wouldn't benefit from hearing about how to love themselves? I love this book. Simply put. I'm recently going through a break up and it has comforted my soul. It's like a conversation with each of the authors; one author shares their piece of each chapter's subject, like how to love being single, and then the other author shares their experience and nugget of understanding. The only thing I do not like about it is the chapters relatively short and I'd love to hear more of what these authors think-however I could read their other books if I want more. Both are amazing people who are easy for me, a 29 year old male, to relate with.

This is just the spiritual dating advice I needed at just the right time! Both authors translate Buddhism and Christian mysticism into simple practices to enrich your relationship with your highest self so that you might flourish more freely in the world with others. I have been deeply inspired by Watterson's work for years and I love this book concept, style and delivery. When I was finished I had clear action plans for cultivating a better relationship with myself and how to practice healthier boundaries, non-attachment, and better loving kindness with others.

I highly recommend this book. I read the first chapter on an Italian train, on my way to spend one day in Venice on my own with a broken heart, feeling curious and a bit anxious at the same time about such an experience. I spent one of the most beautiful day of my life... there is magic in this book, good, simple magic that makes you connect to unconditional love.

Loved have two diverse perspectives on issues of love, life, and self-care. Definitely recommended. Manages to address issues in relationships, both romantic and platonic, without being preachy, evangelical, or overly self-help-ish.

I love everything about this book and I've only read the first 3 chapters. Everything is real, personal, and spiritual all at the same time. Lodro has really made a difference to me in his writing style and helped me in many ways. Whether through thinking or introducing meditation to my life, this book was heavily anticipated from me. I am super excited to read the rest of the book as I know it will be life changing in the most positive way. Looking forward to Megan's input in this as well, I have read her material but I am already a new fan.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
A common problem I see among people is the inability to love themselves. So I had chosen this book hoping that I would gain some insights on how I might be kinder to myself and also how I might help others be more gentle/loving toward themselves.

For me, that goal was not realized. I felt like the book had a lot of promise because the authors approached the subject from two very different points of view. Lodro Rinzler teaches Buddhism and writes from that perspective. Meggan Watterson is a scholar of the divine feminine and writes from a Christian perspective.

This is not so much a how to book as a memoir of their personal romantic/relationship journeys. They both freely share the ups and downs of their romantic adventures. There are obviously some lessons to be learned from their experiences. And there is certainly some value to be gained from a completely different approach. But for me that is also a bit of a problem. I found it interesting to hear their individual stories – but I did not get a lot of insights into how to use their experiences for myself or to teach others.

I am not particularly fond of books by authors that have such contrasting philosophies. I was hoping this one would be different, but for me it was not that helpful.

I realize that some people will absolutely love this approach. There is a lot of good information and many people will be able to relate to the ups and downs of the authors’ romantic adventures. I guess I was expecting more.

I had a beautiful interview for our Inspire Nation Show with Lodro Rinzler earlier this week to talk about How To Love Yourself. I love his basic premise, that it all begins with meditation. This can't be overstated, and he a beautiful job at explaining the why's.

I love this book, it's fun, light-hearted with lots of details and stories to dive into. It's a great way to be entertained as you learn how to truly love yourself more, be more present in the moment, rewire the mind, and find greater kindness and compassion for yourself and others. Oh yeah, it'll also help your love life, and perhaps even the bedroom too!!!
