Life changing - an underrated gem,
This review is from: Finding Each Other (Paperback)
Recently I read "Practical Intuition in Love" by Laura Day. While good, I found it inferior to this book. Day's book is rather vague. This one tells you exactly what to do, and gives concrete steps.
I have owned three copies of this book over the past ten years. I will absolutely say it delivers on its promises, but more --
it's not merely about finding your mate, it's about finding YOURSELF.
"Finding Each Other" is directed at both men and women; they don't talk much about "Mars and Venus" or traditional sex roles. This is a book for everyone.
The book has a series of exercises to follow. They promise that if you follow every exercise, you will become the best you that you can possibly be, and you will find yourself in a good relationship. They also outline a path with getting in touch with your spiritual and creative side. I didn't know I had this side until I read this book!
This book is an 'internal' approach to mate-finding. The first section talks about "Clearing the Mirror", or cleansing yourself of the old hurts and baggage you have been holding onto.
Forget The Rules, forget neo-traditionalism - Don and Mary talk about a new kind of egalitarian and co-creative relationship, "ideal life partnership" - and offer that it is available to everyone who seeks it.
But they don't just teach you how to find a partner, they teach you how to find yourself.
I sincerely hope that this book eventually comes back into print!
