The mindful relationship guide

Who would have known that you could go from an unconscious relationship to a conscious one. The title says it all- easy to listen to and follow. Definitely had a few tears going- I’m going to be much more prepared for the next relationship, thanks

My life's forever changed

This book showed me my wounds, my way to heal, the power of love and while has left me raw and I've cried so many tears over lost love, missed opportunities and for my little me.... I now feel finally, at 45 years of age, hope.

Love does exist and I can work with my partner to feel safe exploring it, and being able to love in a way never experienced before.

Every couple needs to listen to this book and every single looking for love needs this too.

Good practical advice you can use

Very informative and inspiring advice that seems to help.

Good audio version specifically made for this format.

Helpful exercises to pause and work through in each chapter. This along with Hold Me Tight is a good choice when in pursuit of relationship help. Both have interesting perspectives and practical help.

Both partners would need to read or listen to either one for it to work; and be willing to have a go.
This book in particular though has left us both feeling like we have something to begin with, rather than just give up in our efforts to save our relationship.

Its like turning on a light in a dark room!

Lot's of "ah ha" moments,. For me, love has often been similar to being In a dark room - hope for the best but brace for the worst when you don't expect it. Not only does Harville illuminate common relationship patterns and why they happen, but he also clearly explains exercises and gives examples of how to reenergize love and bring back safety and passion, I'm super-excited that "true love" is not only possible and long lasting, but can also exceed the experience of the initial "romantic love" phase! It takes increased awareness and transformation, but as Harville points out, there is no higher human purpose than to give and receive love. Thank you Harville!.

Not at all scientific

focused on too much on post marriage stuff, like marriage could solve all your problem

and I HATE THE THINGS THEY TALKED RELATED TO PHYSICS AND COSMOLOGY to prove their point... first! there is matter and anti matter asymmetry... second! we never proved a particle such that it is own anti particle doesn't exist...

these two don't understand what science is so STOP talking about it

Transformational

I came to this book upset and out of ideas. Me and my boyfriend love each other very much but can’t stop arguing over seemingly small things. I could feel affection wilting because our relationship isn’t a safe place anymore and I didn’t know what to do to fix it. Having listened to this book I now feel so full of hope and energy. Harville identified so many things that I have been doing wrong and can easily change. I never realized before that me and my boyfriend have difficulty asking for what we want so unmet needs and frustrations were mounting. Now I have a practical and safe way to communicate my needs to him. I feel like we can turn things around. A must have for a serious relationship.

Great ideas lovingly put

My favourite part was the example dialogues, you can hear real love in their voices! I can't wait to start putting these techniques into practice in a new relationship, I think it could help build a strong foundation.

Conscious relating in action

Love this audio with Harville Hendrix.
If you are interested in being in a conscious relationship this audio has a lot to offer.
It explains the underlying dynamics, why, what is happening - is happening... and how to break the spell of the power struggle that seems to be very common in relationships.
It addresses couples and singles alike.
How to bring change to a relationship and how to prepare for a new one.

This is the Bible of happy couple relationships

I listened to it in two days, after I hurt the woman of my dreams and she left me. I know how to make it work now. I hope I will get the chance.

This book is just fascinating. So many moments where my mouth just dropped and I had to pause and digest! Then rewind and listen a few more times because it was just so spot on!

Really liked it

I liked the book. The author explained everything clearly and understandable.
However, it is focused on relationships. I had to work a lot thinking about my ex-boyfriend. Also, you need someone to help you with the techniques of dialogue.

I believe this is what I needed to do to heal

It was pleasant listening to his voice, clear and at the right speed for this kind of information. I could do the meditations. although single at the moment, I believe my next relationship experience would be different, would still do the practices in the meantime.
