Emotions link our feelings, thoughts, and conditioning at multiple levels, but they may remain a largely untapped source of strength, freedom, and connection. The capacity to be intimate with all our emotions, teaches Robert Augustus Masters, is essential for creating fulfilling relationships and living with awareness, love, and integrity. With Emotional Intimacy, this respected therapist and author invites us to explore: How to deepen our emotional literacy and become intimate with all our emotionsThe nature of emotional disconnection and what to do about itHow to identify our emotions, fully experience them, and skillfully express themIlluminating, resolving, and healing old emotional woundsGender differences in emotional intimacy and expressionSteps for bringing greater emotional intimacy and depth into our relationshipsIn-depth guidance for those facing depression, anxiety, and shameWhy "blowing off steam" may make us feel worse, and the nature of healthy catharsisThe difference between anger and aggression, shame and guilt, jealousy and envyIndividual chapters for fully engaging with fear, anger, joy, jealousy, shame, grief, guilt, awe, and the full spectrum of our emotionsThere are no negative or unwholesome emotions only negative or harmful things we do with them. Through real life examples, exercises, and an abundance of key insights, Masters provides a lucid guide for reclaiming our emotions, relating to them skillfully, and turning them into allies to enrich and deepen our lives."

Reviews

"Understanding our emotions and working with them and through them has never been more important. Personally, relationally, globally, the maturing of emotion is the first step toward peace. In Emotional Intimacy, Robert Masters creates a thorough geography of the heart, offering detailed understandings and extensive ways to practice being human. A true resource for individuals and those in the helping professions." Mark Nepo, author of "Seven Thousand Ways To Listen" and "The Book of Awakening" "There is wisdom and power in this remarkable exploration of emotional intimacy. The author journeys into unexpected regions of the human heart and with rare discernment explores the dark and light of that which allows for a new order of coming together." Jean Houston, PhD, author of "The Search for the Beloved" "From the moment I opened Emotional Intimacy and treated myself to a long look at - better to say "drink of" -its contents, something in my heart and whole being relaxed and released. I knew I was in the presence of one of the most precise analyses and deeply comforting (which means, strength-giving) contemplations of human emotion ever written, any time, anywhere, by anyone. Over half a million books are now published every year. Very few deserve reading by many of us. Hardly any should be read, imbibed, deeply absorbed and used by just about every adult and most teenagers on the planet. This is one of them. I'm a fairly well respected teacher of such things myself, and I'm marveling at it. I intend to go to school in this masterwork by Robert Augustus Masters for a very long time to come. I can hardly praise it, and thank Robert, enough." Saniel Bonder, co-founder, Waking Down, and author of Ultimaya 1.0: The Trouble with the Wishes of Leopold Stokes " "Emotional Intimacy" is a godsend. Open it on any page and you will experience the truth within your emotions. I recommend this wonderful book to everyone! Christiane Northrup, MD, author of the "New York Times" bestsellers "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom" and "The Wisdom of Menopause" "This is one of the best books on human emotion I've read. What I particularly like about it is its practicality. Dr. Masters has obviously done his fair share of work on his own relationships; his insights and suggestions show the signs of one who has been there in the heat of action. Gay Hendricks, PhD, author of "The Big Leap" and co-author of "Conscious Loving "with Dr. Kathlyn Hendricks "Emotional Intimacy" sets out a perfectly clear and accurate map of the all-too-often confused dimension of our emotional territory, and the result is everything you could ever want from a book on this topic: it is concise, useful, beautifully succinct, exquisitely well-executed, and a deeply joyful book to read. I highly recommend this book for professional and laypeople alike it has something deeply important to offer each and you won t regret it! Ken Wilber, Integral philosopher and author of "A Brief History of Everything" "This remarkably helpful, lucidly written book provides an exceptional road map on how to work creatively and constructively with all of our emotions. I was particularly impressed by Masters' emphasis on intimacy throughout the book, including the art of developing intimacy with each of our emotions. For those of us who wish to deepen our capacity for emotional intimacy with another human being, Masters' offering is a beautiful place to begin. Katherine Woodward Thomas, author of "Calling in The One " In "Emotional Intimacy, " Robert Masters offers a primer on emotions from the most primary to the most subtle. Whether you are currently in a relationship or wish to be in one, this is a very worthwhile book to pick up and select a chapter from which to taste, digest, transform, and heal. As a couples therapist, I will definitely recommend this book to my clients. Stan Tatkin, PsyD, MFT, author of "Wired for Love"" "Emotional Intimacy is a godsend.

The author journeys into unexpected regions of the human heart and with rare discernment explores the dark and light of that which allows for a new order of coming together." - Jean Houston, PhD, author of The Search for the Beloved "Emotional Intimacy is one of the finest books-call it 'self-help' or whatever you wish-that is now available on the market dealing with emotions and, for lack of a better term, 'emotional intelligence'-you take your choice. It is the comprehensiveness, care, and genuine inclusiveness of this book that makes it so original, and that makes it an absolute must reading for therapists, teachers, parents, those in relationships, educators, psychiatrists, and you, who now holds the book in their very hands. It is common to say that 'the map is not the territory, ' therefore we don't won't to confuse the two with each other. At the same time, we don't want to have a crummy, crappy map of the territory instead, either. Emotional Intimacy neither confuses its maps and guidelines with the territory of emotions that it covers, but sets out a perfectly clear and beautifully understandable and accurate map of these all-too-often completely confused dimensions-our emotional territory (complex, often confusing, bewildering, and even occasionally staggeringly complex)-and the maps, guidelines, and suggestive maps that therapists use to bring clarity to this otherwise overwhelmingly complex territory. The result is everything you could ever want: clear and concise, useful and beautifully succinct, exquisitely simple and well executed, beautifully well-written and a deeply joyful book to read, covering all the bases yet in a wonderfully simple and easy way to grasp, beginning to end.
