The Love Project’s mission is to support families and individuals to have a more consistent, joyful, and community-centered service life.


Click here to join us at our Sunday, July 21 Love Project Gathering and PARKING UPDATE

Vision:

Families and individuals are inspired to join the Love Project movement because they want to make an impact in the world, learn to love larger, and create community with other families. Each individual/family chooses and commits to a project that they focus on for one year.


More about the gatherings:

The Asheville-based group will meet quarterly, and there will be additional optional offerings to build community. The gatherings include shares about how projects are going, a mini-exploration of a topic having to do with expanding our capacity to love and to be of service, and sometimes a potluck or other community building container/activity. We experiment each quarter with radically loving ourselves, others, our neighbors, our communities, our planet, and our Source, and share our findings during the gatherings.


More about your personal love project:

You can choose whatever project is of interest to you, and we suggest your doing something once a month towards your project. It can be you, you and a friend, you and your family. Examples: Homelessness - make/serve/share a meal; walk around downtown and talk/listen; volunteer to add your service to this community, be it massage or counseling; your kids make snack bags and then distribute these to friends who can keep them in car consoles and will have them available when needed. Environmentalism - river cleanup, trail maintenance, and litter pickup with other families, Opening hearts to a variety of friends - once a month have a dinner with a wide variety of people, some of whom may rarely get invited to a social event. Infinite possibilities to love with action...

The Love Project is a movement (there is no cost) for those who are ready to be the change they want to see in the world by taking a one year commitment to an issue they have fire around in conjunction with loving themselves and others more skillfully and wholeheartedly than ever before, including God. We know it to be true that the change we want to see in the world is both having more of a life of service and embodying to a greater degree the force of love that transcends all other energies.

We meet bi-monthly to celebrate our successes in the actions we have taken around our chosen issue and the expansion of self-love and love of others which we have experienced.

The benefits for The Love Project members are to have accountability, an expanded community who practices presencing and mutual awakening in a safe, loving environment, personal transformation, mini-workshops at our meetings, and joy.


"We are the hands, feet, mouths of God/dess/Great Spirit. We have the privilege in this lifetime to be Source energy and Love pulsating through us. May we make the most of this sacred, joyful opportunity." 

- Joanie Lamb, Founder of the Love Project.

“Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

—Martin Luther King

“Helping, fixing, and serving represent three different ways of seeing life. When you help, you see life as weak. when you fix, you see life as broken. When you serve, you see life as whole. Fixing and helping may be the work of the ego, and service the work of the soul.”

—Rachel Naomi Remen

“To give pleasure to a single heart by a single act is better than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.”

—Mahatma Gandhi

Imagine if everyone devoted a part of themselves in 2024 to: 

the love project - heart
Commit to one issue that you care about.

Once a month or every other month take an action. At the end of the year you would have taken 6-12 actions. Isn’t that a lot more than you have been doing?


the love project - heart
Serve from the Big Heart versus your limited self.

We have all had those experiences or glimpses of the Big Heart, the feeling of an all-loving energy, where we feel non-judgemental, inspired, and have a great capacity to give. This is the space we learn to cultivate more during our year together, and from which we ideally learn to share and serve more.


the love project - heart
Love yourself, another and everything like never before.

What if this year you love with all your heart the things you least love about yourself? And what if you chose the person(s) you find most challenging to love and loved her (them) like never before? And what if our days were filled with loving what is, our home, our job, our toothbrush, whatever, wholeheartedly and with enthusiasm? What would our life be like, and what would it be like for others to be around us?

“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.”

—Barack Obama

"You are what you do, not what you say you'll do."

"Love is not patronizing and charity isn't about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same -- with charity you give love, so don't just give money but reach out your hand instead."

-Mother Theresa


“To love God in the most practical way is to love our fellow beings. If we feel for others in the same way as we feel for our own dear ones, we love God.

If, instead of worrying over our own misfortunes, we think ourselves more fortunate than many many others, we are loving God.

To love God as He ought to be loved, we must live for God and die for God, knowing that the goal of life is to Love God, and find Him as our own self.”

—Meher Baba
