What’s love got to do with modern challenges? Everything, says Oren Jay Sofer in his new book, Your Heart Was Made for This. No matter how overwhelming things might seem, we can cultivate capacities that help us to act with sensitivity and strength.

Oren Jay Sofer and his latest book

Oren teaches Buddhist meditation, mindfulness and communication (the subject of his last book, Say What You Mean – which I found very helpful when running a men’s group). We touch on all these topics in a wide-ranging chat about ways to awaken in everyday life, while also working to transform the world.

Your Heart Was Made for This weaves personal stories with activist history to talk about techniques for relating more skilfully to one another, and to ourselves. In the process, it highlights 26 qualities from the Buddha’s teachings – including practical guidance on how to develop them, and reflections on their links to social change.
