Exploring and Encouraging the Practice of Self-Love



On Friday, August 13th, we hosted our third virtual Dialogue Nights of the year! Called “A Conversation on Self-Love: What We Need Now,” the topic proved to be a necessary and important one for the participants. The 38 college students and young professionals from five countries in attendance discussed what self-love really means, how we can practice it more, and why true self-love is so important for our world right now.
