Buddhism For Couples with Sarah Nathali If you are in a long term relationship or you’re just starting out in one or you’re somewhere in between you might be interested in a new kind of relationship wisdom, well I guess it’s not new, after all Buddhism is 5000 years old.
Surely a happy marriage for a normally adjusted couple is a simple matter of give-and-take—some patience, tolerance, and just trying to be cheerful as often as possible. There is no shortage of books providing relationship advice that can help us with these matters. But Buddhist teachings address more than just surface knowledge, and guide us to delve deeper into our psyches. I came across Sarah Napthali’s book Buddhism For Couples and was intrigued.
With an emphasis on self-compassion, Sarah’s book explains how to apply Buddhist teachings to your relationships to patch things up, hold things together, and, even on good days, scale the heights of relationship happiness. Written for both men and women, this book tackles the loaded subjects of housework, anger, sex, conflict, and infidelity, and introduces Buddhist strategies that can enrich a relationship.
Definitely a fresh approach to living as a couple and certainly an author I wanted on the show.
