From Conflict to Lasting HarmonyeBook - 2006
"What holds a relationship together? Why are we afraid of intimacy? Where does hurt originate? And above all, how can we master the great challenge of opening our hearts fully to one another? Don and Martha Rosenthal know the answers, and couples who take their spiritual and emotional lives seriously will find the path to true partnership in this wise and illuminating guide. Encompassing both Eastern and Western teachings, it shows how to establish the foundation of love and trust necessary for keeping romance alive. The Rosenthals explain how best to avoid the downward spiral of hurt, anger, and resentment that arises when one person feels disappointed and disillusioned, as well as how to confront our own negative emotions effectively. Find out successful strategies for listening to your partner with an open heart; asking for a change; giving and receiving; handling anger; and working on your own feelings of guilt, fear, and defensiveness"--Publisher's description.
