When couples go to a marriage counselor there are three possible outcomes: (1) they get a fresh start, (2) they stay together and "cope with" a tense or sour marriage, or (3) they separate. Every couple wants the first outcome. They want to have a fresh start and be happy together. If they can't get a fresh start, they will jump to the third choice-separation-because they don't want the second. They have already been coping and are tired of it. Problems and adversity are not the crux of marital discord. All couples face adversity, but it doesn't cause problems for harmonious couples. Couples with satisfying marriages don't "cope" with their lives and with each other. They don't work on their marriages. The strength of their marriages lies not in their ability to cope with their problems, but in their ability to keep their bearings and to stay close. This book shows couples how to do that.

In her first new book in fifteen years, personal development pioneer Shakti Gawain encapsulates a lifetime of teaching and learning to offer her most trenchant and universal work to date. These exercises and insights have been tested and refined in the popular workshops Gawain has taught for decades. They reflect the fact that each of us is in relationship with romantic partners, family, coworkers, and so on — but also with internal core beliefs and a variety of selves, including primary, disowned, and shadow selves. Her revelatory teaching incorporates strategies for becoming aware of hidden beliefs, applying the Voice Dialogue process developed by therapists Hal and Sidra Stone, and learning to experience our every relationship as a path to self-knowledge, intrapersonal enhancement, and even community and global betterment.
