"At it's core, his message is quite simple, and resonates strongly with people: learn to know and love yourself, so that you can better know, love, and serve others. Dr. Leming speaks the truth about all of us: our capacity for fear, courage, hope, joy, suffering, and love. He speaks in a very real and concrete way, in terms to which everyone can relate – and always with humor, compassion, and kindness."
