Truly Sanely Deeply: A Practical Path to Real Love and Mindful Relationships (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


In this age of social media, selfies and reality TV, it's all too easy to become lost in the fantasy of 'love at first sight', 'finding the one' and all the other cliches that bombard our timelines and screens. How will we ever find out knight in shining armour or princess in the tower? Well, as authors Stephen McKenzie and Bernice Plant point out, it's probably best to throw out all our ideas about what love is and instead focus on the reality. All good relationships start with really knowing ourselves and understanding why we act the way we do. Once we recognise our own life scripts, we're in a far better position to experience real love. The kind that lasts. The kind that brings us happiness, not a broken heart. Truly Sanely Deeply begins by comparing what we think love is, and how it's often portrayed, with what love actually is. Along the way, it also takes a look at the many and varied types of love. In Part 2, the authors move on to practical guidance for exploring common love traps and ways for implementing 'best practice' love. Guided reflections informed by the practice of mindfulness are included to help us identify and create our own working model for love in every facet of our life, so that we can enjoy the best possible loving relationship with parents, siblings, partners, children, friends and co-workers.
