Love Lives Here: 40 Days of Reconnection
WHAT is the Purpose of Love Lives Here?
The purpose of Love Lives Here: 40 Days of Reconnection is to experience the healing and regenerative force of love in our daily lives by focusing on our relationships with ourselves, each other, the earth and the Sacred in all Life. The invitation is to come together as a growing community, to restore our connection with the heart of what matters and serve the greater whole.
When is the Live Event?
The event started May 1st and continues for 40 days. However, it's never to late to begin! If you're wanting to join in our shared experience, here's a short video explaining how you might choose to get involved.
We are moving through four 10-day themes:
- May 1 - 10: Reconnect with Self
- May 11 - 20: Reconnect with Each Other
- May 21 - 30: Reconnect with the Earth
- May 31 – June 9: Reconnect with the Sacred within All Life
Again, you may join anytime during the 40 Days or after. Once registered, you will have access to the entire collection of materials.
Why 40? The Importance of 40-day Traditions
Forty days is a period of time that allows for transformation (repair, renewal, regeneration and rebirth) to occur. In sacred readings from ancient traditions, we see the mention of 40 days as precursors in creating a favorable environment for change and the deep preparation of the heart, through purging the old in order to receive a new set of instructions and preparation for a new phase in life.

HOW does the 40 Days Work?
You will receive a Daily Digest in your inbox with simple instructions for a live daily practice of resonance and reconnection. The digest also includes other tips, tools, videos, articles and resources. There will be guidance for how to embody, experience, and express more love, while reconnecting with one’s Self, each other, the earth, and the Sacred within all life.
The entire collection of practices, links, and resources will be available to you throughout the 40 Days and beyond, so you can participate during the live event or join later and still have a powerful experience. We recommend you participate with the group to contribute to the greater whole, build a field of coherence and experience the deep resonance. However, you can join in at any time. You can gather with us at the GOOD of the WHOLE Community Facebook Group is HERE. The permanent archive links will be shared with you after your 40 Day journey.

What Participants are Saying About Love Lives Here:
"In the first 24 hours of 'fasting' for LOVE, my energies have shifted almost 180 degrees! I’m experiencing my energy fields opening wide. My field is soft, gentle and pale pink. There are no constrictions or restrictions. I intend to participate with myself in this way for 'ever', beginning with these first 10 days with LOVE LIVES HERE. I live in an Assisted Living facility with about 120 people. During these first 24 hours, when I’ve shared with others my course of action, each one 'gets it.' I then observed the LOVE energies expanding even more, and each person comments, with a huge smile, that they can actually feel the LOVE. I am now feeling inspired to flow LOVE to every person, to each of their apartments, in the common areas, the kitchen, and everyplace else that calls my attention... I’m goin’ for it!!! I’m ALL IN ~ 100%!!! * WE ARE * ONE HEART * ALWAYS * AND IN ALL WAYS*" ~ Joie Bourisseau
