My favourite book this week is Perfect Love, Imperfect Relationships: Healing the Wound of the Heart by John Welwood.
If you are in a relationship you must read this book. John Welwood is so wise in identifying the real problem in all relationships and that is YOU. You cannot have intimacy unless you heal yourself. We must integrate all the fears (negative emotions) we each have accumulated over our lives. They are a huge barrier to your deepest longing which is love, which is our very essence.
