Purchase Journey of the Heart from the Beliefnet Shopping Mall. Journey of the Heart: The Path of Conscious Love
By John WellwoodI’m going to be reviewing 5 of John Wellwood’s books in January in preparation for the LOVE month: February.  But to whet your appetite for his incredible insights on conscious love, I wanted to share this wonderful excerpt from his first profound book.

As men and women find that they can no longer rely on old roles and formulas to get along, intimate relationships call for a new kind of honesty and awareness, a willingness to let go of old patterns and cultivate new capacities. “Journey of the Heart” shows how we can rise to this challenege by learning to use whatever difficulties we face in relationships as opportunities to expand our sense of who we are and deepen our capacity to connect with others. This is the path of conscious love.
