Passion and Presence : A Couple's Guide to Awakened Intimacy and Mindful Sex
Awaken your mindful sensuality and reconnect with your partner with Passion and Presence. Most romantic relationships follow a predictable pattern of initial enchantment followed by inevitable disenchantment. But relationships don't have to stay in disenchantment or end! Passion and Presence offers readers a proven path back to connection and intimacy--sometimes in deeper ways than before. Sex therapist Maci Daye draws on her popular international Passion and Presence workshops to help readers expand their sensuality and live a vital erotic life. Passion and Presence guides readers down what Daye calls the "naked path" of awakened intimacy. On this path we courageously examine ourselves, our barriers, and our relationship patterns, ultimately finding fresh ways to heal and connect. The approach is gentle, non-judging, and rooted in curiosity and acceptance. The book addresses common challenges of "real life" sex, such as sex that has become routine, differences in preferences or desire, power struggles, a history of trauma, changes ranging from childbirth to aging, infidelity, communication challenges, and more. Each chapter includes reflections and exercises. Passion and Presence helps readers develop a new mindset to sex and intimacy that will enhance their self-awareness and erotic connection throughout life.
