Banyen's Description: 

Why is it that intimate relationships give us the most exquisite and magical moments of our lives but also some of the most painful and heartbreaking experiences we endure? How is it possible that the meeting of two hearts brings out the best and worst of us? Meet Me in Hard-to-Love Places offers a clear and beautiful map for the wonderful, difficult and bewildering world of intimate relationships. Eric Bowers draws from Attachment Theory, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Nonviolent Communication, and his own explorations of hard-to-love places to explain why relationships fall apart and to give you the blueprint, building blocks, and inspiration from which to create a new foundation for love.

Meet Me In Hard-to-Love Places is a book that outlines the foundational ideas and principles of Attachment Theory, Interpersonal Neurobiology and Nonviolent Communication in ways that are very accessible to the reader. The stories and poems interspersed throughout the book help make the information personal, engaging and quite inspiring. Bowers is a Vancouver-based therapist and musician. His book is substantially nourishing, easily relatable with Eric’s own stories of where the relationship rubber hits the road.

The most important relationship you will ever have is the one with yourself. Listening for and following your deepest truth is one of the key ingredients for that relationship to thrive. Healing your wounds opens the path to deeper and more skilful listening… Often my inner work goes deeper and is more transformative when I receive support from a skilful therapist or empathy buddy.

Included at the end is a chapter of relationship practices and processes designed to enrich all of your relationships, as well as a chapter of practical tips for building successful relationships. An Appendix listing Needs and Feelings is also helpful.

“Eric’s courage, vulnerability and hard-won wisdom are a testament to the depths and edges he has explored in relationships.” —Dave Wali Waugh, author of Evolving Soulfully
