Publisher's 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 You’ll begin by learning how to clear away the outdated beliefs and habits that keep you from developing healthy self-esteem.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.  

Highlights

  • The adaptive child - how to recognize and defuse self-sabotaging habits
  • Unhealthy self-esteem traps for men and women 
  • Identifying your CNI (Core Negative Image) - a key to making arguments constructive instead of destructive
  • The Feedback Wheel - a four-step approach to revolutionize your communication 
  • The Five Losing Strategies: our impulses to control, retaliate, and be right all the time

Game Changer

This book will help you connect the dots to why things happen the way they do in your relationship. As someone who has read a lot of trauma and communication books, fierce intimacy had knowledge that I hadn't come across before. It also linked bits and peices together that I hadn't connected. Overall a great book!

Incredible Insights

This is a fantastic breath of fresh air on relationships and how to operate within them. I have read quite a few good books in this domain but have always been left with an inability to apply the teachings but this book addresses the foundations of the challenges that inevitably occur in loving relationships.

A mindful and practical approach to changing yourself and the interactions that you have with those that you dearly love.

Relational gold

I found the content of this audiobook insightful, practical and crystal clear. Terry's methodology is unique and courageous and I have been applying the insights to a range of contexts; the workplace, friends and family with great success. I recommend this book whether you are currently in an intimate romantic partnership or not.

Compassionate Intimacy

This book is in true service to compassionate intimacy and living relationally.

If we connected with this in our teens and early adulthood, we would all be entirely different human beings in relationships today.

This is an ‘on the ground’ living model for higher ordered consciousness in partnered relationships- what, why, and how to.

A proactive and demonstrative model, it is proof that we can live intimately and lovingly while still subjective and polarised in our perceptions,.

Relational empowerment has a completely different vocabulary and completely different energy to personal empowerment.

It makes the road less travelled accessible, and takes the bypass out of spiritual.

Compassionate living is a courageous feat, and one of humanity’s inroads to Peace.

Fierce Intimacy is a rite of passage for all who desire good relationships and who are ready to go the journey to get there.

Life changing

I love everything about this book and Terry Real delivers it so damn well. I’ve been seeking an approach that really gets to the core of things and helps me take ownership for my sh*t and change it. I’ve prescribed this book to myself for 15 minutes a day and my plan is to have it on repeat until I get it down pat. Lots of actionable stuff in here that you can show your loved one right away.

Essential reading for all humans

I loved this book. I loved that Terry Real read it too. It's brilliant. It would be hard to not like it. It covers pretty much everything you need to know to grow as a human and function well in relationships. In a down to earth and authentic way. Terry gets vulnerable and shares some of his own personal and relationship issues and you get that feeling that he's down there in the trenches with you. I've listened to it 3 times already. Do yourself and your partner a favour and listen to this book! I'll be giving hard copies to friends and family as gifts too.
