In this practical, playful, yet spiritual guide, Charlotte Kasl, Ph.D. -- author of the highly successful Finding Joy: 101 Ways to Free Your Spirit and Dance with Life -- shows us what it would be like to have the ancient wisdom of the Buddha to guide us through the dating process.

Dr. Kasl brings a compassionate understanding to the anxiety and uneasiness of new love and helps readers discover their potential for vibrant human connection based on awareness, kindness, and honesty.
