Contemporary life seems to be permeated by a profound sense of disconnection, personal isolation, and social fragmentation, even for those with families and long-term relationships. Explore the critical need for a profound shift away from our individual orientation--the “I and me”--to a deeper consciousness of the relational context--the “we and us”--in which we discover our true self in our experience of intimate connection.
Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., is the co-originator with his wife, Helen Hunt, of Imago Relationship Therapy and the coauthor of several highly influential books on relationship, including the New York Times bestseller Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples, which has been translated into more than 50 languages.
