True Love Ways: Relationship as Psycho-Spiritual Development
Coming Spring, 2018 from Shambhala Publications
Why is love so hard to find and hold on to? Is there such a thing as “true love?”
Love has been idealized in music, art, literature and popular culture for centuries; yet eventually all intimate relationships encounter obstacles, including conflict and loss. True Love Ways examines the demands of modern love relationships within the historical context of marriage, inviting us to reconsider our understanding of the nature of “true love” or “personal love.” Turning the notion of love as biological attachment bond or romance on its head, True Love Ways re-defines true love as mutual love between equals; requiring insight, mindfulness, equanimity, emotional maturity, open communication and honesty. In this sense, finding and sustaining true love can become a path to spiritual awakening.
True Love Ways: Relationship as Psycho-Spiritual Development provides a framework for a bold and profound new understanding of enduring relationships so that we can ultimately embrace love, our beloved, and life in the spiritual practice of love.
