Each heart has a story to share. We all have our own lessons that show up in the domain of love. Each layer of love has a specific style, impact and important message attached. Come experience, listen and learn about what you may have have not connected to within your own lessons of love. We actually do need to love ourselves and one another and all that exists around us. Let love prevail. Let love give light. Let love create. Let love expand. Let love learn. Let love be. Let yourself sink into more love.

Lessons in Love is a series created by Sara Moncrieff and Nicole Breanne Hudson.

This lesson will be shared by Ria Ray; Ria Ray is an acclaimed artist and spiritual teacher devoted to helping people find self-love and live their most meaningful lives. Born in Trinidad and Tobago of Indian descent, Ria's family emigrated to the U.S. when she was six. She grew up in the Washington D.C. area. When she was 27, her entire immediate family — mother, father, brother, sister and uncle — died in their home from carbon monoxide poisoning. The horror of this tragedy caused Ria to seek her purpose, and moved her to paint and help others heal. Ria’s paintings fuse color, light, texture and depth, serving as talismans for diving deeper into consciousness. Ria's pieces hang on the walls of private collectors, celebrities, Fortune 500 corporations, movie studios and galleries coast to coast.

As a healer, Ria uses her tremendous compassion and clarity to help people increase awareness, surmount obstacles, and love themselves more deeply. She acts as a catalyst to inspire change for individuals, groups and families through sessions, workshops and retreats across the globe. In partnership with Lululemon, Ria created her signature REST class, which blends healing and meditation into a sacred opportunity to reconnect with the soul. Ria collaborates with other partners including Russell Simons’ Tantris Center for Yogic Science, the Four Seasons, The Den Meditation, Iviva by Lululemon, Soho House and The Alchemist’s Kitchen.

The Ria Ray collection, created with love, illuminates a path into meaningful living. It includes her book, “create. humanity is beauty,” candles, mantra ties, journals, bath and body products and more. The Ria Ray collection is carried by fine retailers including Tantris, the Four Seasons, The Detox Market, The Closet by Sharon Segal and Nina Segal and Sol Yoga. Ria is married with two children; she lives in Tampa, Florida, and splits her time between Florida, New York, L.A. and Toronto.

While self-love is becoming an increasingly recognized concept, there are so many people who talk about loving themselves but don’t recognize what that feels like. Through meditation and discussion Ria will teach you how to feel. Don’t miss an unforgettable opportunity to experience Ria communicate from her soul to yours.
