What does it take for couples to sustain love? How can you deepen your relationship even when you and your partner disagree, fight, or let each other down? “Intimacy isn’t something you have. It’s something you do,” teaches Terry Real. “It’s a minute-by-minute practice of connecting to others through empathy, vulnerability, and accountability.” By daring to be more vulnerable and open and honest, we are forging new territory. Terry offers a revolutionary way of living in connection—one that allows you to cherish your partner, yourself, and your relationship in equal measure.
Terry Real is a multiple-bestselling author and licensed marriage and family therapist based in Boston who has been in private practice for more than 25 years. Terry is the founder of the Relational Life Institute and Chairman of Real Relational Solutions, Inc. His work has been described by the New York Times Book Review as “a critical contribution to feminist psychology [that] brings the Men’s movement a significant step forward.” Robert Bly hailed his book as “moving onto new ground in both story and song. Exhilarating in its honesty.”
