No relationship situation is hopeless. In Open Hearts, readers will learn how to overcome "couple shame," fight fair, understand their family "epics," break free from the same old battles, form a spiritual bond, and renew their early passion.
When a couple first comes together, the knee-weakening, heart-stopping, pants-dropping passion exhilarates. But turning that love into an intimate bond comes no more naturally than learning to ride a bicycle or use chopsticks. What we are socialized to assume should be spontaneous and effortless requires patience and learned skills. Worse, should any problems erupt we fear the relationship and ourselves are irrevocably broken. We need help.
