Love Between Equals: Relationship as a Spiritual Path Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Learn how to successfully negotiate conflicts and deepen our most intimate relationships in this practical and thoughtful guide by an experienced Buddhist teacher, psychotherapist, and couples counselor.
A committed relationship, as most people see it today, is a partnership of equals who share values and goals, a team united by love and dedicated to each other’s growth on every level. This contemporary model for coupledom requires real intention and work, and, more often than not, the traditional archetypes of relationships experienced by our parents and grandparents fail us or seem irrelevant.
Utilizing the wisdom of her years of personal and professional practice, Young-Eisendrath dismantles our idealized projections about love, while revealing how mindfulness and communication can help us identify and honor the differences with our partners and strengthen our bonds.
These practical and time-tested guidelines are rooted in sound understanding of modern psychology and offer concrete ideas and the necessary tools to reinforce and reinvigorate our deepest relationships.

I have now received the order, my book: Love between equals.
And here is a surprising truth that may explain some of that- insight won’t fix this. We can spend years in therapy developing boatloads of insight and still be impossible to live with because of the massive blind spots we have developed in our relationships. When we find ourselves diagnosing, labeling and characterizing we are not truly knowing, understanding and accepting those we love. How do we avoid this common trap and set ourselves free to love more abundantly?
Polly Young-Eisendrath PhD has masterfully brought the mindfulness of Buddhism together with the insights of psychoanalysis to give us the tools to untangle the mysterious spell which seems have befallen us. She explains that by winning the rights we now have in the 21st century to love/marry whom we choose, commit to equality in relationships and expect a best friend who “gets us” and mirrors us accurately, we have won a sort of lottery of love. But we have no idea how to manage our windfall. We are rich with freedom, equality and friendship in these relationships, but live with a poverty of skills to manage them.
Love Between Equals teaches the skills and provides a map through the “broken hallelujah” that is love. Dialogue Therapy itself, is a guided tour, which will leave you more compassionate, more mindful and able to see yourself and your partner clearly. These skills will leave you changed and will pay dividends for the rest of your life and all of your important relationships.
