Massive Love Altar

Why a Massive Love Altar? Why not?

The proprietors of fear, hate and anxiety are actively building their monuments.

What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No not just for some but for everyone.

Jackie DeShannon

Jackie DeShannon wrote this in 1965, and it is true now, more than ever.

A better question might be: “Why isn’t everyone building Massive Love Altars?”

Call for Exceptional Lovers

A-whoa there cowboys and cowgirls — we probably aren’t talkin’ about the kinda love you might have just conjured up in your luscious and creative mind. To be clear, this is a call to recognize those everyday people in your life who dish out exceptional amounts of love to the universe. Might be your Grandma, or your child’s kindergarten teacher, or the barista at your local café. These unsung heroes are distinguished by their loving-kindness and unselfish giving — passed out free, in heaping helpings, just about every day. Help us to sing their praises!

If you know an exceptional lover, please let us know about them — we want to take their photo in front of a massive 10-foot Love Altar, capture their story, and share it with all the world. More details here.
