The Intimate Life is a book about connection at the deepest possible level. The author, Dr. Judith Blackman, calls this connection “fundamental consciousness,” a unity of self and others.
Blackman describes in rich detail the three main pathways of interpersonal connection: awareness, emotion, and physical contact, and helps readers to overcome any intimacy problems that may be affecting their close relationships.
Blackman has pioneered the “Realization Process,” – a process that leads one to spiritual awareness through interconnectedness. Exercises from the Realization Process, throughout the book, offer readers an opportunity to experience enriched personal relationships and awakening spiritual essence through compassion, understanding, and joy.
The Intimate Life contains many case studies that focus on how the Realization Process has worked for others. Following the stories of Blackman’s clients gives a real sense of the process and how greater awareness and unified consciousness can aid one’s relationships.
Sexual intimacy is also addressed with special exercises to help you find true connection with your most intimate partner. They can also help with specific sexual difficulties.
This book is essential reading for people who want to regain an intimacy in their relationships and share a deeper connectedness with loved ones. It is highly recommended for those who would like to work with their partner to attain a higher level of consciousness and revive their innermost connection.
