But what exactly is a “spiritual partnership?”

“When two people in an intimate-couple relationship look at their interactions as opportunities to learn about themselves instead of change each other, they are infusing their relationship with the energy of spiritual partnership,” he writes. “If they are married, they infuse their marriage with the energy of spiritual partnership, and eventually it will become a spiritual partnership.

“A spiritual partnership is a partnership between equals for the purpose of spiritual growth. Spiritual partners use their delightful experiences together as well as their power struggles to learn about themselves and change themselves.

“This is a new way to live. A new way to create together. A new way to evolve together.”

In 1989, his The Seat of the Soul “led the way to seeing the alignment

of the personality and the soul as the fulfillment of life and captured the imagination of millions,” according to his website. It rose to the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list 31 times and remained on the bestseller list for three years.

In 2000 he wrote Soul Stories, another bestseller, and then co-authored two more bestsellers Francis, The Heart of the Soul: Emotional Awareness and The Mind of the Soul: Responsible Choice.

“Do you know people who want to become more aware of their emotions instead of avoid them?” he writes in his personal blog. “They are potential spiritual partners. Do you know people who strive to take responsibility for the consequences of their choices instead of blaming others for them?

“They are potential spiritual partners. Spiritual partners commit to their own spiritual growth. If this is attractive to you, you are a potential spiritual partner.”

Among the themes in his book – we should love more, control less and create positive life experiences so that we can move past the pain in our lives.
