9781564554000: Sacred Fire: The Path of Conscious Relationship

Sacred Fire
By John Welwood

New insights about the unconscious issues that come between you and the relationship your spirit yearns for. Dr. John Welwood’s books – including Journey of the Heart, Awakening the Heart, and Challenge of the Heart – have been acclaimed for teaching how to "begin to work on one’s most intractable feelings in relation to another person, so that they become a path of self- development for both individuals."
When we enter an adult relationship, Welwood observes, the "light of love" penetrates the unconscious of both partners. This elemental emotion catalyzes the parts of the self that are unconscious – in darkness – shut off since childhood as a coping mechanism. Trouble spots in a relationship can actually be read like signposts that point to specific issues from the past that are unconsciously shaping the present. After hearing the demonstrations on Sacred Fire, you will look at your lover, not as a block to your individual fulfillment, but as the pathfinder to it. Includes a wealth of live exercises, clinical information, and Q and A sessions to introduce you to Welwood’s relationship work.
Topics: Three stages of couple development in history; the personal/spiritual couple model; "self-other" concept and object relations; creating a new self-view in relationship; exercises and more.

Book Description:

A breakthrough program for couples from the author of Journey of the Heart and Love and Awakening. This audio explores relationship as a pathway to inner development. Through demonstrations and exercises, Welwood shows how every relationship conflict provides a special kind of spiritual opportunity--to uncover hidden resources within ourselves and connect more deeply with each other.

From AudioFile:

In addition to explaining the notion of "the path of the conscious relationship," Welwood gives a number of provocative exercises for sustaining "love's sacred fire." The program also includes Welwood's responses to questions from his audience. Welwood presents his material in a comfortable, conversational manner with flashes of humor. His smooth voice draws the listener into the message. P.B.J. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
