Full Description

Proven Skills for Navigating the Real Challenges of Intimate Relationships

What does it take for couples to sustain love? How can you deepen your relationship even when you and your partner disagree, fight, or let each other down? “Intimacy isn’t something you have. It’s something you do,” teaches Terry Real. “It’s a minute-by-minute practice of connecting to others through empathy, vulnerability, and accountability.” With Fierce Intimacy, this renowned author offers a revolutionary way of living in connection—one that allows you to cherish your partner, yourself, and your relationship in equal measure.

How to Communicate with Love and Respect—Even When You Argue

Terry’s approach to relationship is called “full-respect living”—to skillfully and honestly assert your needs while also honoring your partner’s needs. In these six sessions, he presents invaluable training for individuals and couples on developing the skills necessary for this authentic way of connecting. You’ll begin by learning how to clear away the outdated beliefs and habits that keep you from developing healthy self-esteem. Then Terry will help you and your partner transform the Five Losing Strategies that sabotage relationships into the Five Winning Strategies that lead to clear communication, trust, and mutual support.

“When we dare to be more vulnerable and open and honest, we are forging new territory,” says Terry Real. Whether you’re still seeking a partner or want to breathe new life into your existing relationship, Fierce Intimacy brings you essential tools for connecting with true respect, uncompromising honesty, and ever-deepening love.

Immensely comforting and empowering

Terry Real is clearly a master of the methods he advocates. Because he embodies it, it made it much easier for me to learn and put into practice quickly. Even in the heat of things, the way forward has been clear -- put up boundaries, remember love, and hold on to what you truly want. For me this course has been like an oasis in the desert -- to know that so many other good and sensible people are struggling with the same issues and that we can all move forward with persistence and ease.

Most heart centered and effective couples skills

In over 25 yrs of practice many new methods have been introduced. This has to be my single favorite. Terry teaches communication skills that can reinvent relationship. More than this, These skill transfer into how we relate to one another in the world. How children manage their lives growing up in a culture where bullying and violence seems to be everywhere. Relating to one another, teaching by example, and introducing young people to skills that form a healthy relationship is reinforced by having emotional needs met.
