In this groundbreaking book based on his bestselling audio teaching series, a distinguished psychologist shares his breakthrough techniques for creating deeper and more lasting connections with our loved ones.

"Every time we think, we set into motion the entire creative mechanism. Love is not so much an emotion as it is a conscious, willful decision we make."

Dr. Henry Grayson puts aside the traditional methods of family counseling to show you how to look at your relationships from an entirely different perspective. Combining Western psychology, Eastern philosophy, a variety of spiritual traditions, and today's newest current in scientific thinking, Grayson guides you through ten simple but specific and effective practices, and shares crucial insights about:

* The power of thought to heal our relationships and ourselves
* How to break the vicious cycle of interaction that traps us in patterns of resentment and isolation
* How to change our core beliefs by making perceptual shifts that end suffering
* The six forms of counterfeit love and nine barriers to love
* Unblocking the flow of love and choosing love over fear
* Creating a spiritual marriage rather than an ego-based marriage
* The ten characteristics of empowering love

Henry Grayson, a psychologist, relationship counselor, psychoanalyst, and former minister who has been working with couples and individuals to improve their relationships for more than thirty years, has found that most people are actually more unhappy after marriage counseling or couples therapy.

By getting to the root of our relationship problems, Grayson creates a whole new framework in which to view intimacy-- one where psychology, spirituality, and science meet. He shows you how to:Break the vicious cycles of interaction that trap you in patterns of resentment and isolationIdentify the six forms of counterfeit "love" and nine barriers to lovePractice ten characteristics of Empowering LoveCreate a spiritual marriage rather than an ego-based oneFilled with techniques, exercises, meditations, and inspiring case studies, here is an indispensable guide to creating healthy and fulfilling relationships that is destined to become a classic in the field."Grayson's book will help you tap into your deepest capacity to love in the soul-stretching initiation of intimate relationships.

Jampolsky, author of Forgiveness: The Greatest Healer of All and Love is Letting Go of Fear"At a time in history when everyone is searching for greater security, the temptation is to build defenses and barriers around ourselves. This impulse is fatal to love. That is why Dr. Grayson's message is not only wise but timely as well."Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Healing Beyond the Body, Reinventing Medicine, and Healing Words
