New Zealand love activist talks Valentine's Day

The most complex human emotion: simplified
Holistic living expert, love activist gets to the heart of the issue

TAURANGA, New Zealand – Love today is often measured by materialistic treasures, as evidenced by the increasing number of dollars spent to commemorate commercial holidays such as Valentine’s Day.

Rather than looking in your pocket book for the meaning of love, look inward and to the world around you, says educator and love activist Kimaya.

In her new book, All the Flavours of Love, Kimaya argues that love is a gift that brings into our lives gentleness, compassion and a deeper wisdom about the things in life that are truly important.

“Society has a habit of promoting individualism and encouraging competition, which can be damaging to our long term health and wellness,” Kimaya says. “Studies show that competitive self- esteem is related to larger societal problems such as loneliness, segregation and prejudice.”

Speaking to the complexity of this human emotion in a simplistic manner through bright, bold illustrations and short lines of text, Kimaya spreads messages of love and positivity to children of all ages.

“My book is about the sacred relationship we can each have with ourselves, others and the world around us when we are centered in love,” Kimaya says. “To see love in every moment is a gift that each of us - children and adults - can give to ourselves, and ultimately society as a whole.”
