Description:  We all know the powerful effect of love in our personal lives.  How can we be carriers of love in the world at large—especially during times of social upheaval?  Inspired by a life-changing encounter with Love, Fran interviewed renowned spiritual teachers, scientists, activists, and artists—all selected with the help of her teacher who verified their capacity to transmit Love.  She will share the impact of these encounters and several ways to tap into one of the least utilized resources on the planet:  the human capacity to love.
