Summary

Proven Skills for Navigating the Real Challenges of Intimate Relationships 

What does it take for couples to sustain love? How can you deepen your relationship even when you and your partner disagree, fight, or let each other down? “Intimacy isn’t something you have. It’s something you do”, teaches Terry Real. “It’s a minute-by-minute practice of connecting to others through empathy, vulnerability, and accountability.” With Fierce Intimacy, this renowned author offers a revolutionary way of living in connection - one that allows you to cherish your partner, yourself, and your relationship in equal measure.  

How to Communicate with Love and Respect - Even When You Argue 

Terry’s approach to relationship is called “full-respect living” - to skillfully and honestly assert your needs while also honoring your partner’s needs. In these six sessions, he presents invaluable training for individuals and couples on developing the skills necessary for this authentic way of connecting. You’ll begin by learning how to clear away the outdated beliefs and habits that keep you from developing healthy self-esteem. Then Terry will help you and your partner transform the Five Losing Strategies that sabotage relationships into the Five Winning Strategies that lead to clear communication, trust, and mutual support.  

“When we dare to be more vulnerable and open and honest, we are forging new territory”, says Terry Real. Whether you’re still seeking a partner or want to breathe new life into your existing relationship, Fierce Intimacy brings you essential tools for connecting with true respect, uncompromising honesty, and ever-deepening love.

invaluable

I have listened to this audio book two times now and seem to learn something new every time I listen to it. I mostly do individual therapy and I must say that this relational therapy approach is wonderful.

Life changing

This is one of the most influential pieces of content that I have ever purchased. I have been giving this and sharing this with my entire extended network of professional men. I would estimate that 30 to 40 guys that I know, have begun work on themselves with the help of this content. The feedback that I received from the people I’ve shared this with who are going through it themselves mirrors my own incredible Journey with this content. Fierce intimacy, quite possibly saved my marriage. It certainly made me a better friend, father, and business leader.

I loved this book!

So practical, insightful, wise and easy to follow. I will listen to the audible book repeatedly and I just bought Terrance Real's other book for even more supportive guidance.

Required Listening

I wish I could relive my marriage (if not my whole life) in the light of this information. There are other amazing voices in current relational wisdom (Brown, Perel, Tatkin), and I recommend all of these wholeheartedly as well.
What I feel sets this series apart is that it seems to touch on every important aspect of self knowledge, relational behavior, and the changes that must be made to make space for connection with oneself and with another. This is a no nonsense, no sugarcoating perspective that really penetrates the defenses, and then generously bestows the tools to retrain those very defenses to transform into healthy boundaries and strength/vulnerability that ultimately work in your (and your partner's)favor.
