Why is it that intimate relationships—be they romantic, familial, platonic—give us the most exquisite and magical moments of our lives but also some of the most painful experiences we endure? How can we create the relationships we long for?

In this interactive and engaging book talk, Meet Me in Hard-to-Love Places author Eric Bowers will explore these questions and their answers through the lenses of Attachment Theory, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Nonviolent Communication and The Shadow.

Eric Bowers is an author, musician, relationship coach, and Nonviolent Communication Trainer. Through his writing, coaching sessions, and workshops, Eric helps people understand and navigate the beautiful and challenging world of relationships. As the singer and songwriter for The Next Small Thing, Eric loves to musically inspire people to search for the greatest depth and aliveness in themselves and in relationship with others.

"Willing to let us learn through his honest and well-earned reflections, Eric Bowers shows us how to delicately, courageously, and empathetically navigate the true nature of intimacy. Whether you are in a long-term relationship and looking to evolve together, or collecting yourself before beginning again, this book offers effective and loving tools for seeing you down the path."

~ Mia Kalef, DC, author of The Secret Life of Babies

"Eric’s book is a precious gift for those looking to improve their relationships. It is also a coherent synthesis of Attachment Theory, Interpersonal Neurobiology, and Nonviolent Communication that therapists will find helpful in their healing work with clients. Eric’s courage, vulnerability and hard-won wisdom are a testament to the depths and edges he has explored in relationships."
