About the Book: If the world’s problems feel overwhelming and making a difference seems impossible, you’re not alone. So many of us wish we could be doing something good and purposeful, but we get stuck. We think that what we do won't matter, or that we’ll do it wrong, or that we don't have enough time or resources. But caring about each other is a natural instinct all humans have – what is it doing to our minds, bodies, and souls to ignore this part of humanity?

In Love Without Reason, LaRayia Gaston – activist, documentary filmmaker, and founder of the nonprofit Lunch on Me – offers inspiring and practical guidance for bringing kindness, generosity, and love to a world in need. She shares an inspiring and actionable guide to help us connect with our hearts, reawaken our innate desire to make a difference, and then make that difference in a way that not only helps others, but also nourishes our own joy and soul. One invaluable way is a micro-gesture – a simple, intentional act of caring for another person that can be done by anyone, anywhere, anytime.

Ms. Gaston will be in conversation with Kriste Peoples, a producer, writer, speaker and mindfulness meditation teacher.
