Love Lessons with Michelle Elman and Zing Tsjeng

Love Lessons with Michelle Elman and Zing Tsjeng

Join author Michelle Elman and journalist Zing Tsjeng as they discuss self-love, modern dating and being selfish.

Ru Paul famously once said 'If you can't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?'

This event is all about self-love (not that kind of self-love, get your mind out the gutter)!

So, what do we mean when we say self-love? From exploring ways to live a more fulfilling life, have more confidence, and be more successful, to the lessons in love that allow us to successfully navigate the world of modern dating.

Join Michelle and Zing as they dive a little deeper into this sacred and fragile topic of how to practice self-love, knowing your worth, and the joys of saying no.
