Sex, Love and the Dangers of Intimacy: A Guide to Passionate Relationships When the "Honeymoon" Is Over
This text discusses relationships as a spiritual path - transforming conflict into intimacy. Most couples feel conflict is the sign of a problem arising in a relationship. Nick Duffell and Helena Lovendal have come to appreciate conflict as a means for reaching greater intimacy. This book should enable readers to transform potentially difficult situations into opportunities for greater self-knowledge and truer partnership. Case studies from the authors' own experience, courses and counselling provide key insights into how to make relationships work. Each chapter contains exercises: some thoughts to ponder, things to do, including some bodywork such as breathing exercises, and making a timeline of the relationship.
