In Secrets of a Passionate Marriage, Dr. David Schnarch shares a revolutionary approach thousands have used to take their relationships to new and lasting heights of sexual ecstasy and intimacy. Emotionally committed relationships, he teaches, are people-growing machines, and sexual difficulty and other challenges are actually signs of a healthy, maturing relationship.

  • Discuss why emotional gridlock is a critical and necessary phase for a healthy relationship
  • Recommend steps to achieving more passionate sex and a more intimate relationship

  • How to "self-soothe" your anxieties and open to the full range of human eroticism
  • The psychology of sex — how to make an ally out of what you're really thinking during sex, and much more

With many proven exercises to "electrify" your sex life, heighten passion, and renew commitment, Secrets of a Passionate Marriage is sure to help your relationship reach its full potential, both in and out of bed.

This was an excellent resource for me to share with clients. The CDs were clear and full of useful learnings about intimacy and about the nature and purpose of marriage. I would recommend this to all couples, and to therapists who work with couples.
