ABOUT THE BOOK | MANY LOVERS BOOK 4267

Many LOVERS is a philosophy book in which its author highlights ‘lack of LOVE’ as the cankerworm eating through the fabrics of societies, destroying minds and people, and causing reparable and irreparable conflicts. It is an encyclopaedia of over 40 volumes which explains the philosophy and concept known as ‘Touch LOVE’ or ‘Touch’ or Touch LOVE Worldwide’. Touch LOVE philosophy advocates the installation of several and diverse ‘LOVE STOPS’ in communities as a solution and a way of tackling that disability known as lack of LOVE. A LOVE stop is a space where individuals stop to refill their LOVE tanks with LOVE energy. Just as buses stop at bus stops, individuals can stop at LOVE stops. Many LOVERS simply adds, in its writer’s unique way, another voice to existing voices, which recognise LOVE as the only solution, which heals, lifts, beautifies and nourishes both its giver and its receiver at the same time.

ABOUT HARRIET GORE | A philosopher who lives in London where she has been working as a barrister in independent practice since 1997 in areas involving the application of Human Rights law including immigration and homelessness as well as other areas such as mental health and family law. Harriet is a product of the LOVE in all things including the diverse multi-cultural encounters and experiences which have shaped her and moulded her into what she has now become. An indigene of everywhere with strong roots in beautiful Uga, Aguata LGA, she was born in the culture-rich region of Nteje, Anambra state, went to secondary school in the culture-rich town of Nkwerre in Imo State, was a street dancer in the culture-rich city of Enugu, the once capital of East Central State of Nigeria where she was involved before the age of 10 as a performer in the children’s radio programme ‘children’s half-hour’ and television programme ‘tortoise club’. She went on to study Theatre Arts at the University of Benin, in the culture-rich city of Benin City before serving in NNPC Kaduna refinery during which time she had the rare privilege of encountering northern male traditional musicians who welcomed her to sit with them in an open path to play music with them using the stone she found and used as percussive accompaniment. Whilst in Nigeria, she benefitted from the generosity of the British Council visitorship scheme, and during her law studies in the UK she became a beneficiary of the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple’s exhibition award. She was identified for a Foreign and Commonwealth Office scholarship award for a Post-graduate Master’s programme in Dance therapy to prepare her for a position as a dance lecturer at the University of Benin, Nigeria.
