Jett Psaris describes "Undefended Love" as knowing oneself and another simultaneously without obstruction. When we fall in love we glimpse the essence of ourself and experience the inner core of our being as goodness, joy, love and peace. “Intimacy is a spiritual practice,” she tells us, “love is one of the most potent ways for our journey to be initiated.” Life gives us a choice. Do we defend against and reject our experience - or - do we accept our vulnerability and let it be the source of guidance? She believes sustained and evolving intimacy is possible. We can recognize that love is the universal solvent to growing who we are: in our ability to care for one another, and our ability to be who we glimpsed when we fell in love.
