Beginning Again: Meditations Between Relationship--Nowick Gray
(free PDF download) "A marriage ends. A life begins. In between is my story."
"Life itself takes on the flavor of chocolate, and nourishment is found in the very air."
Is there any other way than to describe my own predicaments, daily details, dreams and disappointments, energetic spins of fancy and philosophy? This is a time and place for describing truth as only I know it, in its most personal form. Yet this is not intended only for me, but as a recorded journey to share, a validation for what we must go through, for what we choose to celebrate and what it falls to us to mourn.
Love is Not a Game
(But You Should Know the Odds)--Randy Hurlburt
Cutting-edge self-help for finding relationship, love and sex,
and emotional closeness and maturity.
Secrets: The Alchemy of Ecstasy--Nik Douglas and Penny Slinger
All is bared in this popularization of the sacred texts and lore
of the East. The core teachings are Taoist and Tantric, with liberal
references to the Kama Sutra and other texts. Lavishly illustrated,
this compendium of higher sexual practice has everything you're
missing if you're only messing with mainstream sex.
the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples--Harville Hendrix
This book is one of the best in its ever-popular field. Hendrix
has been through it all and presents here a no-nonsense approach
that works. We are encouraged to see, through a series of exercises,
how our partners reflect the positive and negative traits of our
own parents, and of ourselves. The exercises also lead us into
constructive ways of communicating and caring for each other in
the ways that count most.
of Desire: Women, Passion, and Romantic Obsession--Rosemary
The Governor General's Award winner spins a fascinating and original
tale--part personal, part philosophical, part fiction, part nonfiction--exploring
both the tragic obsession and the redeeming depth of woman's dance
with sex and romance.
Challenge of the Heart: Love, Sex, and Intimacy in Changing
...In researching a book on this bottomless
subject, Welwood assembled a stellar collection of writings to
share. Scott Peck, Alan Watts, D. H. Lawrence, Chogyam Trungpa,
Robert Bly, Wendell Berry, R. M. Rilke--along with women writers
who are less "household names" but, of course, carry half the
On Love: A novel--Alain
...a philosophical, analytical, ironical
(of course) and arch treatment of love, through one manís journey
there and back. Chapter titles ("Romantic Fatalism,"
"The Subtext of Seduction," "The Fear of Happiness,")
suggest the themes treated literarily yet in character.
Embracing Each Other--Hal
Stone and Sidra Winkelman
..."The fairy tale version of romantic
love teaches that once one finds the right mate, there is a marriage
and then the two live happily ever after. Somehow the relationship
magically brings out the King or Queen in each of us; therefore,
our task in life is to find the correct mate so that we can be
truly ourselves. In contrast to this, many of us now have a real
fear that we will lose ourselves if we "give in" to
a relationship and make the adjustments that are necessary in
order for it to work, that the changes demanded of us by relationship
are a weakening or a
lessening of who we are."
This is a book that comes at the right time: and in (or out of)
relationship, any time is the right time. Especially helpful is
the advice on taking care of one's [inner] "vulnerable child":
1. Recognize its presence
2. Develop an awareness of its personality, needs and reactions
3. Separate far enough in trigger situations to evaluate
4. Speak up for it in an objective, relaxed fashion
Ourselves: the Voice Dialogue Manual,
by the same
authors, provides hands-on tools for healing.
Spirituality and Sex--Osho
..."While making love to a woman, you are
really making love to existence itself. The woman is just a door, the man
is just a door. The other is just a door for the whole; but you are in such
a hurry you never feel it. If you remain in communion, in deep embrace for
hours together, you will forget the other and the other will just become
an extension of the whole.
"in human life the sex act is the only act in which you come to feel
a nonduality, in which you come to feel a deep oneness, in which the past
disappears and the future disappears and only the present momentóthe only
"Sex is just the beginning, not the end. But if you miss the beginning,
you will miss the end also."
Future of Love--Daphne
...This book is deceptively simple and
repetitive: yet powerful in the breadth and depth of its message:
so many forms are possible, they are all okay when we undertake
to pursue our relationships with our focus instead on the growing
spirit, the spirit of love.
Inner Lover: Using passion as a way to self-empowerment--Valerie
...Takes a long look at some lesser-known
aspects of relationship: loving yourself first; embracing loveís
suffering for the growth it brings; nurturing an unattainable
relationship through fantasy rather than through destructive sex;
and realizing that our attractions often mirror our own desires,
and embody the lessons we need to learn in our lives. "Things
donít get better; they get deeper."
...complete exploration of causes and
characteristics of emotional debt and toxic nostalgia, with cogent
principles and truths of natural therapeutic healing. A cornucopia
of useful one-and-two-liners: "How you see your past is how
you feel about yourself." "If you accept yourself as
you are and pay attention to the road, you will get where you
want to go." "Just believe you are good. Everything
else will follow." "You are the answer. Spend your life
defining the question."
Children: The Secrets of Dysfunctional Families--John
Friel and Linda Friel
...Are we all in this leaky boat? It
appears so. These therapists tell it like it is: truthful, readable,
straight talk. What do you use to cover your past and present
the Child Within--Charles
...expert in Inner Child work covers
field with broad and deep strokes, outlining pathways to personal
evolution and intimacy.
...the childrenís book writer turns
to adult fiction: very adult, very funny.
Children of Alcoholics--Janet
...a leader in the field gives insight
and perspective by profiling what to expect and how to move on.
...strategies born of vast counseling
experience, to open up to honesty and full expression to each
...the definitive handbook on negotiation
without giving in. You can't always get what you want, but if
you try sometime, you get what you need...
Bridges of Madison County--Robert
...a perfect novel of an affair, with completeness
and simplicity, showing the ultimate tragedy of our dual-hearted dilemma.
Great on video too, with Meryl Streep and (gasp) a well-aged Clint Eastwood.
