9780071402491: Slowing Down to the Speed of Love : How to Create a Deeper, More Fulfilling Relationship in a Hurried World

From the coauthor of the international bestseller Slowing Down to the Speed of Life

. .

"I believe this book has the capacity to touch something inside youAndshy;Andshy;deep enough to help you make significant, positive changes in your life."--from the Foreword by Richard Carlson, author of Don't Sweat the Small Stuff

. .

Bestselling author Joseph Bailey shows how to slow down and make time for the love that we want. His approach, based on principles of Health Realization that were espoused in his and Richard Carlson's international bestseller Slowing Down to the Speed of Life, can be applied to solving problems that almost every couple encounters.

. .

With the help of true stories from his own relationship and those of couples he has counseled, Bailey offers poignant lessons on how to see our partners anew and find the healthy self within that is capable of true love, forgiveness, and deep, satisfying intimacy. He explains how to nurture the seed of timeless loveAndshy;Andshy;versus time-bound loveAndshy;Andshy;that exists in all of us and offers a positive, commonsense model for finding and maintaining health relationships.

About the Author:

Joseph Bailey is a licensed psychotherapist and faculty member of the center for Spirituality and Healing at the University of Minnesota School of Medicine. He is the author of several bestselling self-help books, and he and his work have been covered on NPR and CNBC and in the national print media.

From Publishers Weekly:

In a follow-up to Slowing Down to the Speed of Life, which he co-authored with Carlson, Bailey applies his "Health Realization" principles to romantic relationships. The "slowing down" refers not so much to lifestyle or schedule as it does to thoughts: "A quiet mind does not denote a dull mind," Bailey writes, and he urges readers to refrain from judgment and to pay attention to their true Selves. Core principles include "deep listening" and its converse, "speaking from the heart." The writing is rife with metaphor-our true Self is the "jewel at the bottom of the pond," and we must realize as we "run on the treadmill of life" that our "feelings are like a best friend"-often to the detriment of clarity. Difficult-to-understand charts and motivational ephemera (he includes a lengthy poem written by his wife, for example) might further distract readers. Illustrative anecdotes, which occur more frequently in the latter half of the book, are more useful in demonstrating how Bailey's abstract theories may be put into practice. Though Bailey employs familiar nuggets of self-help doctrine (he encourages readers to aspire to the wisdom and purity of children and to seek the love within), he also offers insights into how to live a more fulfilling life.
