This February, New York wellness gurus are creating a kind of love that extends way beyond Valentine’s Day.

Jason Patrick, AKA Bearded Yogi, will host the third annual Big Love Weekend on Saturday, February 28 to Sunday, March 1. And the two-day extravaganza—which benefits God’s Love We Deliver, a New York City-based non-profit that provides medically tailored meals to people with severe illnesses—is bigger than ever this year.

It starts with a Wellness Day on Saturday, at event space The Waterfront in Chelsea, that will feature two yoga classes taught by Elena Brower and Modo Yoga instructors, workouts from Kirk Myers Fitness and IntenSati’s Patricia Moreno, a talk by spirituality guru Gabrielle Bernstein, a guided meditation with Donna D’Cruz of Rasa Living, and healthy sips and bites from Gingersnap’s Organic, Health Warrior, Juice Generation, and more. Sunday’s Birthday Bash and Dance Party will return to The Breslin at The Ace Hotel (where Big Love Weekend took place last year) to celebrate with food, talks, live music, and a DJ’d dance party.

You can register for $108 for one day or $216 for both, or fundraise or donate via Crowdrise. And every penny from the event will go to God’s Love We Deliver. Now, doesn’t that sound so much more gratifying than obsessing over getting chocolates or roses? —Jamie McKillop
