Overview
Teach Me How To Love is the true story of Scott Kalechstein Grace, an unlicensed peddler on the streets of NYC, who, after years of being chased by the police, decides to chase his dreams instead. While sharing his inspired, improvisational singing, motivational speaking, and conscious comedy across three continents, Scott eventually discovers that what matters most to him is learning his love lessons at home - how to be vulnerable, how to forgive, how to love himself and others, and, perhaps the most difficult and daring adventure of all, how to let love in. “Teach Me How To Love is a captivating, illuminating and joyously entertaining guidebook for our soul. As you laugh and cry your way through the pages, you will come to recognize yourself. I thank Scott for his unique gifts and courage to share them. They will shine light upon your own.” -Alan Cohen, author of A Daily Dose of Sanity and The Dragon Doesn’t Live Here Anymore “Teach Me How To Love delights and disarms with humor, and then takes you by surprise with its transformational teachings. Scott Grace generously points the way to courageous living and loving, all while keeping it fresh, delightful, and so very fun. If you have a sneaking suspicion that you can use more lightening up as you reach for your dreams, then read this book!” -Jack Canfield, author of The Success Principles and co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul
Description
Teach Me How To Love is the true story of Scott Kalechstein Grace, an unlicensed peddler on the streets of NYC, who, after years of being chased by the police, decides to chase his dreams instead. While sharing his inspired, improvisational singing, motivational speaking, and conscious comedy across three continents, Scott eventually discovers that what matters most to him is learning his love lessons at home - how to be vulnerable, how to forgive, how to love himself and others, and, perhaps the most difficult and daring adventure of all, how to let love in. Teach Me How To Love is storytelling at it's finest. The fact that the story is true, real, gripping and hilariously funny makes this book a rare treat. We all are fumbling beginners when it comes to love, and this book's ability to teach without teaching, to share and inspire rather than preach and give advice, is a very powerful and penetrating approach. He makes it safe, joyous, and exciting to learn. It's a precious book, one that not only uplifts, but can actually generate an emotional shift, a leap into new possibilities for the reader. I don't think there is anyone - atheist, agnostic, Christian, Buddhist, New Ager, New Thought, etc, who would not benefit from Teach Me How To Love. Love encompasses all religions and no religion, and so does this book! “Teach Me How To Love is a captivating, illuminating and joyously entertaining guidebook for our soul. As you laugh and cry your way through the pages, you will come to recognize yourself. I thank Scott for his unique gifts and courage to share them. They will shine light upon your own.” -Alan Cohen, author of A Daily Dose of Sanity and The Dragon Doesn’t Live Here Anymore “Teach Me How To Love delights and disarms with humor, and then takes you by surprise with its transformational teachings. Scott Grace generously points the way to courageous living and loving, all while keeping it fresh, delightful, and so very fun. If you have a sneaking suspicion that you can use more lightening up as you reach for your dreams, then read this book!” -Jack Canfield, author of The Success Principles and co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul “Teach Me How To Love grips and grabs you like a thriller, except that instead of scaring you, it will encourage you to laugh your fears away. Scott manages to be honest, entertaining, inspirational, and wildly funny throughout-and even when the tale turns profound and deeply healing, somehow it all still goes down light and easy, with humor as a constant companion. This is my kind of book!” -Gary Renard, author of The Disappearance of The Universe “Scott Grace’s joy is contagious and lights up every page of this entertaining and inspiring book. This is a brilliant account of happiness that comes from the inside out. His remarkable story of going from laundry bag street peddler to transformational troubadour will loosen your cares, fuel your enthusiasm, and help remind you of your own infinite capacity to love and be loved.” -Marci Shimoff, author of Love for No Reason, Co-Author of Chicken Soup for The Woman’s Soul “Teach Me How To Love sparkles with fun, wisdom and great humor as Scott relates the ins and outs, from very personal experience, of daring to live intentionally. It also happens to be the finest kind of love story, one that not only gives you hope and goose bumps, but also tools and a treasure map to your heart. You may just enjoy reading it so much that you don’t even realize how much you’re being healed!” -Tama J. Kieves, author of This Time I Dance! Creating the Work You Love
About the author
Bio Rhythms I was born at a young age in 1963 Survived the streets of Brooklyn and my noisy family My parents thought God was a scam, religion was for saps For me that meant no Hebrew School So I thanked God for that! No Chanukah, no Christmas trees, no holy holidays When we gathered for a meal for grace we said "Oy Vey!" I was schooled in logic, learned hard science and new math I had some signs of ADD and couldn't sit still in class I took two years of college and then called it graduation You could say I left to get a higher education I became a spiritual seeker, meditation, LSD I did some breathwork, got real high and met with God drug free! My parents were beside themselves "Oh, where did we go wrong? Our son has got religion...well, at least he's not reborn!" I didn't join a church, or pass pamphlets door to door I learned to mind my ego so it wouldn't mind the store I took the latest workshops and expensive weekend trainings I paid for Tony Robbins to say "Scott, just quit complaining!" I did my daily practices and found some peace and power I started writing happy songs and singing in the shower Some friends who overheard me asked "Why don't you make a tape? Your music will help many folks rejoice and celebrate" And so I went from shower to the studio and stage I freed up the performer who'd been locked inside a cage My music brought me so much joy and even brought me money I left the day job, moved out west to where it's much more sunny I made CD's, the word caught on till I was quite sought after There's nothing like a message that is sent in song and laughter At home I learned my lessons just like everybody else I learned to love another I first gotta love myself I grew through my relationships, the land of Mars and Venus I learned to listen to my heart not just my head and penis So now I journey with a mate, we raise a child together We're learning we can choose to love in every kind of weather Sometimes when our fears collide, we both get out of joint We point the finger at each other and truly miss the point Yet in the midst of challenges we're learning to stay friends To welcome different points of view and not judge or defend A fighting Brooklyn boy can grow to be a gentle man When he gives up being right and seeks to understand And that's what I have learned so far out in the Sunshine State It's best to battle with my ego instead of with my mate Yes, that's what I have learned in all these years I've told you of I'd rather lose an argument and win at choosing love I'd rather drop the arguments and join with you in love
