Intimacy is one of the great powers and joys of life, yet all too often it gets clouded by miscommunication, a loss of affection, and a lack of mutual support. Join us for this discussion about his new audio cd collection, as therapist and author David Richo shows us how to use mindfulness to better understand ourselves and our partners so that we can: 1) Increase our capacity to give and receive love by recognizing how our past relationships affect our current life; 2) Improve physical and emotional intimacy by embracing the five hallmarks of loving relationships; 3) Resolve conflicts by constructively working with anger, grief, and blame; 4) Move from needy, ego-centered love to unconditional love by addressing fears of engulfment or abandonment; and 5) Discover how relationships can be a path to spiritual awakening by practicing mindfulness and loving-kindness.

David Richo, Ph.D., M.F.T., teacher, workshop leader, and writer, works as a psychotherapist in Santa Barbara and San Francisco California. He combines Jungian, transpersonal, and mythic perspectives in his work, and has authored many books, including How to be an Adult in Relationships, The Five Things We Cannot Change, The Power of Coincidence, Everyday Commitments, and The Shadow Dance.
