The Crossroads of Science, Spirituality, and Love

Science has always been about evidence. Religion has, in our perspective, always been in its essence about love and connection. Based on the work of scientists, visionaries, and thought leaders, we present information and resources that explore this exciting crossroads. We hope this will encourage us all to rethink traditional assumptions of science vs religion, and begin to see both as two sides of life, complimenting and validating each other in a cosmic dance that can serve a global movement that transforms the world into a more loving home for all.

How to Change Your DNA

Thus starts the web of understanding the difference between genetic determinism and epigenetics, which is the difference between living as a victim of our genome, or being responsible for switching our genes on or off through the way we choose to live. Heart intelligence is a goal we can aspire to and open ourselves to the wisdom of the ages, and the frontiers of science. Read more →

Your Brain is Powerful But Needs Your Help

6/22/2020 LoveMore Blog | Our Brains get overloaded by any number of things, including an overly stressful day at work or a family emergency. People in poverty, however, have the added burden of ever-present stress, and often bracing themselves against class bias that adds extra strain or even trauma to their daily lives.
