What Is Love? Leeds International Festival Event

Dr Divine Charura will be presenting a talk at Leeds International Festival.

What Is Love

What are we without the joy and despair of love?

The love of power and its impact in dividing society starkly presents itself in our society today given the present political and social context.  However, the essence of love in relation to what it means to be human raises different conversations and questions. These include for example: What is love? Is love a human concept only? How do you know when you are in love? What are the kinds of love we experience as humans? Is love healing? What is the psychological and neurobiological impacts of love?

The essence of this talk is to explore what love is, in order to make a change not only to the human condition but also politically, and socially; Thus being in line with the view that the future of the planet will depend on those of us engaged in loving relationships who are trying to understand and deal with authentic-encounter and the interactions between human beings and in caring for our planet.
