Overview

What is it that keeps you from having the love you desire, the relationship you truly want? What is it that keeps your relationship from being lived to the fullest, from being filled with the utmost joy?

How to Keep Your Love Alive will answer that question and show you how easy it is to have a healthy, happy lasting relationship once you learn and practice the laws of lasting love. Like the laws of gravity, these simple laws work unfailingly. If you jump off a building and expect to fly, you’ll find yourself crashing to the ground. If you undertake a relationship without following these laws, at one point or another, both you and the relationship can come crashing down too. This book shows you how to build your relationship on a firm foundation, so it can grow strong and tall.

Filled with short, easy to understand chapters, you discover who you are, want you want and how to become your own best friend. You also find out more about your partner, what they truly need and want, and what makes them withdraw. Then you receive relationship tools - ways of solving stuck spots, healing misunderstandings, loneliness and pain. Once the relationship is established on a firm basis, this book shows how love grows, what keeps it strong, alive, and how to continually renew the romance and love.

The chapters contains information, guidelines, tools and exercises. The exercises are simple and enjoyable and when you apply them to your life situation, amazing changes take place and soon you begin to experience the love you want. There is no problem that cannot be solved when you apply one of the tools or guidelines.

Praise for Dr. Brenda Shoshanna’s books

“Dr. Shoshanna’s words are wonderful!”
--Marianne Williamson

“A powerful, potentially life-changing book.”
–Body & Soul

“There’s some good, solid advice here that just might help the lovelorn break some of their destructive patterns and connect the dots as to why true love is always passing them by.”
--St. Petersburg Times

“In her book Fearless, Dr. Shoshanna provides a refreshingly simple ‘Zen’ approach to addressing the complicated subject of fear.”
--Lucinda Bassett

"Shoshanna has some insightful things to say about anger in the family, in the workplace, at God and at destiny. This book can change the way you view yourself and others. It will help you give up grudges, stop blaming others and playing the victim."
--Spirituality & Health

“Readers searching for broader meaning will revel in Dr. Shoshanna’s ability to weave together the basic tenets of relationship psychology with the self-realization techniques of Zen practice.”
--Publishers Weekly

“This is relationship, samurai style...Shoshanna studied with the Zen masters Soen Nakagawa Roshi and Eido Shimano Roshi; the rigor of traditional monastic training shines through the spare language and format. Aspects of Zen training that can be controversial or confounding are presented matter-of-factly.... Shoshanna holds out the redemptive possibilities of practice.”
--Tricycle Magazine

“Dr. Shoshanna’s book has less to do with the mechanics of sitting and more to do with the realities of integrating Zen practice into real life. Shoshanna extends an empty and richly filled hand, offering both the sublime and the practical, which are one and the same in the Zen world. This is a highly recommended volume for beginners and new practitioners.”
--Publishers Weekly

“Dr. Shoshanna challenges us to let go of fantasies, expectations, fears and anticipation so we can be fully present to life. Her wisdom is genuine and deeply considered. Her book is well worth reading.”
--Spiritual Parenting
