The Unshakeable Road to Love (Value Centered Relationships) is based upon Eternal Principles from all world scriptures, including Zen. These tried and true practices guide us to build a foundation in relationships where happiness and well-being are inevitable, and pain, upset and conflict can dissolve on the spot.
A radically different approach to psychology, the material offers a completely new perspective on how to experience fulfillment and what is truly needed in relationships. For example, a foundation of this practice is:
To Be Happy, You Do Not Have To Be Loved, You Have To Learn What It Means To Be Loving.
The book explores the difference between Real and Counterfeit Love, showing how all our suffering in relationships is due to being caught in the trap of Counterfeit Love. This is a Book of Practice. It is filled with Turning Points, Pillars of Love, Interventions and many enjoyable exercises which show you how to practice these principles daily, in all our relationships.
Written by a psychologist, Interfaith counselor and long term Zen practitioner, the book combines the practices and principles of both East and West including all the ways to make these teachings real in our everyday lives.
Reviews for the Book
I have loved the author's book since reading "Why Men Leave" over 20 years ago- she always provides a very thoughtful, enlightening and unique perspective on that most enigmatic of subjects - the importance of loving relationships. "The unshakeable road to love" is yet another feather in her cap. Oprah really needs to come calling :) - Barack Obeagle
