Summary

Here is a powerful new program that can clear away the unconscious agreement patterns that undermine even your best intentions. Through their own marriage and through nearly 40 years of experience transforming relationships with thousands of people, Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks have developed precise strategies to help you create a vital partnership and enhance the energy, creativity, and happiness of each individual. You will learn how to:

  • Let go of power struggles and need for control
  • Balance needs for closeness and separateness
  • Increase intimacy by telling the "microscopic truth"
  • Communicate in a positive way that stops arguments
  • Make agreements you can keep
  • And allow more pleasure into your life

Addressed to individuals as well as to couples, Conscious Loving will heal old hurts and deepen your capacity for enjoyment, security, and enduing love.

Best book I’ve heard on audible

1. Exercises and activities (second to none)
2. There is nothing negative I can think of about this book a preservation
3. Authors have covered every angle of a relationship
4. If you and your partner are willing to take this journey together doing the exercises in this book, you can’t go wrong.

Add this together with Robert Augustus’s Transforming intimacy and you’re onto a winner (in this lifetime anyway!) :)

Good content, bad audiobook

The content is useful, the reader is fine, but this book has not been adapted to work as an audiobook at all. You'll want to do the exercises or at least not have to strain to translate them into something that makes sense, so save yourself the frustration and get a text version.

Very enlightening

This book really gave me some encredible insights into my own and others behavior, the reasons why I might feel certain things in certain situations. It's already helped me better understand and communicate with my girlfriend and I thought we were already great at communicating. This is a book I will start gifting people I care about to help them better their relationships, that how good I think it is.

Excellent

This book is an excellent resource for relationship improvement. I'm implementing as many of the strategies as I can remember, and I'm eager to present and begin working through the process with my fiance.

One of the best

Read it if you want to have a relationship. Everything, and I mean everything take skill to be successful. Nothing is natural. This book provides those skills.

Light Work

It brought so much language to what I have been feeling and going through. Having the language and examples to see how to work through challenges was so transformative!

Too esoteric to be useful

I cannot take books seriously which keep talking about the flow of energy and how it is supposed to pulsate between people. Next time, keep your esoteric crap and stick to simple psychology.

LOVED IT!!

In order to truly get everything out of this book, you must do 2 things: 1) Consider this as an INTERACTIVE program in the same way a college football head coach would recruit an athlete. YOU have to buy into it & do so by being ALL IN. It’s not helpful at all if you just assume it’s”just another _______” book… You’ll get caught literally judging the book by its cover (even as an audio book)!!
2) Once you’re ALL IN, see to it that you get your significant other to participate with you. It can ONLY help your relationship, where’s the harm in each learning about oneself & their partners?! It may save YOUR marriage!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain!!

THIS IS MISCATEGORIZED

Erotica? This should be in psych or self improvement. Wrong category keeps it from being read.
