Review:

The authors call it "practical magic"--the enchantment that occurs when couples act upon their highest intentions and deepest love. Suddenly creativity and humor spill upon every page of life; intimacy is a given instead of a task; accountability and responsibility are freedoms rather than burdens. But getting to this magical state of being is the problem. This book has all the right spells. Practical issues such as sex, aging, money, fights, and infidelity are all examined through the lens of a conscious heart. Without once faltering into surface solutions or cosmetic improvements, these world-renowned couples' therapists explore the seven choices that transform relationships from the inside out.

From the Publisher:

One of the most celebrated books on relationships in the past decade, Conscious Loving has been incorporated into wedding ceremonies and taught in college courses, as well as becoming an intimate guidebook for thousands of couples. Now, building on the psychological insights of their earlier work, Kathlyn and Gay Hendricks bring a new level of spiritual knowledge to the point-blank world of relationship life.

At the core of their new book are seven soul-commitments that change relationships from the inside out--basic shifts of attitude and intention that can transform everything from a couple's fundamental trust in one another to the petty details of day-to-day life. These soul commitments enable us to use conflict to illuminate the fears that keep us stuck and hidden from our true nature. They also work to enhance authenticity, equality and appreciation in every aspect of our partnership.

The Hendrickses outline these spiritual principles with eloquent clarity, and they also show them in action in numerous illuminating examples--including their own mid-life marital crisis and in dealing with the very material world of money. No other relationship book is at once so on-target practical and so large in its claims for the ultimate power of the conscious heart.
