—Ian Kerner, sex therapist, and author of the New York Times bestseller, She Comes First
This book is for anyone in a love relationship who wants to fall in love again (with the same person), and is willing to examine within themselves to discover that they possess the key to happiness. Fraser weaves in real stories from the couples who have walked the path with her, along with her own candid (and entertaining) experiences to illustrate to the reader how to bring Buddha back into the bedroom. I will recommend this book to my own clients (and friends!) and suggest that they clip each of the ‘Love Bytes’ and ‘Buddha Bytes’ scattered throughout the book!”

About the Author
A highly successful and awarded Fulbright scholar, she has conducted extensive research on sexual behavior and what causes love relationships to succeed or fail. With her groundwork, she created the Become Passion online workshop for couples. She has a thriving private practice in sex and couples therapy.
A former talk radio host, Cheryl is a dynamic guest expert for television and radio, appearing on multiple programs, including The Experts, CBC Marketplace, Air America, the Loving Well podcast, and many more.
As a columnist for Mindful and Best Health magazines, Cheryl explores love, sex, relationships, and the human experience. Her approach to life and to helping others is based in her practice of meditation and Buddhism, which she has studied for twenty-five years in both the Tibetan and Theravaden traditions. She was given permission to teach by her root teacher Namgyal Rinpoche, and she is resident meditation teacher for Island Dharma. Her work is encapsulated in the teaching of Mindful Loving, where she brings the Buddha’s teachings into the bedroom.
When Cheryl is not in India, Tibet, or at a three-month silent Buddhist meditation retreat, she lives on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada, with her man and their menagerie, practicing the passion she preaches.

I really appreciated the focus on learning how to soothe ourselves through upset feelings so that we can reconnect with our partners. So often couples want to have an intimate relationship but cannot get past the hurt and the stories they tell themselves about past injuries. Dr. Fraser's positive message about how to stay in love by managing our minds will give couples a way to love through hurt as well as the everyday.
One exercise that I highly recommend is "Identifying the Expectations Behind the Unhappiness". Readers will find peace learning how our thoughts instead of our mate create the upset and will learn a way to manage those divisive thoughts so that we can love each other better.
I will enthusiastically recommend this to my clients! Thank you to Dr. Fraser for this contribution to creating happy, loving couples.
