Item Description...
While most of us have moments of loving freely and openly, it is often hard to sustain this where it matters most--in our intimate relationships. Why, if love is so great and powerful, are human relationships so challenging and difficult? If love is the source of happiness and joy, why is it so hard to open to it fully and let it govern our lives? In this book, John Welwood addresses these questions and shows us how to overcome the most fundamental obstacle that keeps us from experiencing love's full flowering in our lives.
"Perfect Love, Imperfect Relationships" begins by showing how all our relational problems arise out of a universal, core wounding around love that affects not only our personal relationships but the quality of life in our world as a whole. This wounding shows up as a pervasive "mood of unlove"--a deep sense that we are not intrinsically lovable just as we are. And this shuts down our capacity to trust, so that even though we may hunger for love, we have difficulty opening to it and letting it circulate freely through us.
This book takes the reader on a powerful journey of healing and transformation that involves learning to embrace our humanness and appreciate the imperfections of our relationships as trail-markers along the path to great love. It sets forth a process for releasing deep-seated grievances we hold against others for not loving us better and against ourselves for not being better loved. And it shows how our longing to be loved can magnetize the great love that will free us from looking to others to find ourselves.
Written with penetrating realism and a fresh, lyrical style that honors the subtlety and richness of our relationship to love itself, this revolutionary book offers profound and practical guidance for healing our lives as well as our embattled world.

Perfect Love, Imperfect Relationships: Healing the Wound of the Heart  Sep 25, 2008
Perfect Love, Imperfect Relationships is a tender book based on clinical sound concepts and essential spiritul truths that transcend any one spiritual path. It is a human work of love for each of us to imbibe whether we are professionals, seekers or simply want to feel loved and safe.

Robbing Stephen Levine  Sep 14, 2008
Welwood is a good writer whose books read smoothly. My problem is that he borrows most of his ideas from people like author Stephen Levine. Read Levine's book "Embracing the beloved: Relationship as a path of awakening" or "Gradual Awakening" and see what I'm talking about for yourself. Levine's books predate Welwood's by 10 and 30 years so there's no question about whose robbing who.
Success again.  Aug 26, 2008
As a psychotherapist with 30 years experience, who works with couples, I consider this book to be one of the best for therapists of all levels of training. My colleagues and I agree that the best way to use this book is to savor its contents, digesting the lessons slowly, perhaps even reading sections to clients. Welwood is a gifted writer,centered in his psychospiritual approach without neglecting important aspects of patient-therapist connection.
An excellent look at what makes love work  Jul 28, 2008
In this book, Welwood examines the concept of unlove and how that concept motivates the unhealthy patterns that people sometimes act out when in a relationship. I enjoyed this book as I enjoyed his other books. What I found useful was his thoughtful but also detailed examination of unlove and how it manifests. His examples of his work with clients was also helpful for illustrating his theories about unlove. Most importantly I came away with a better recognition of my own issues and how to cultivate a good awareness of those issues. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to better love hirself.
Perfect love imperfect relationships  Apr 28, 2008
This book "Perfect Love Imperfect Relationships" is great. It really goes to the root of the problem and the reason why we feel unlove and can't connect with those around us. It is the "go ahead" to opening the window of opportunity to a meaningfull life, while creating a new way to see the world. It encourages us to seek to forgive our past and focus on the present in order to have happier lives. In my particular case, it was the answer I was looking for. I agree with the writer. I had a trouble childhood and this book made me realized that I am in control of my life right now. It made me realized that I am not at the mercy of anyone. I strongly recomend it!!
