Product Description

Review

"Daphne Rose Kingma is one of the Knowers on the planet, one of the women who see things, and pass on the information.With this book, I hope her information reaches even further and wider, past our personalities, past our barriers, past our resistances to love.She takes our hands and guides us past the war zones of relationships to the peaceful meadows of a higher love."
--Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love
"In this innovative book, Daphne Rose Kingma breaks down the popular myth of how love is 'supposed' to be by introducing us to a broad spectrum of intimate connections.She reveals how to work through the various confrontations that every relationship encounters and reach deeper levels of love and intimacy."
--John Gray, author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

From the Hardcover edition."

From the Inside Flap

"The future of relationships is moving us toward the vaulting awareness of who we really are as human beings, something we have managed to avoid for a very long time by being so thoroughly committed to convention...This is the future of love--vast love, love beyond boundaries, love without preconceptions and judgments, love without outdated myths--love which can actually be experienced."
At a time when over half of all marriages are ending in divorce, Daphne Rose Kingma, a well-known therapist and relationship expert, has recognized that our familiar ways of thinking about relationships are no longer working. "I have written this book because it is clear that many of our previous assumptions about relationships need to be dismantled," writes Kingma. "As we go through this process, we will discover a number of new ideas: that our relationships can have different forms than we ever imagined; that they will serve different purposes; that they will require different offerings from us. They will also bring us new gifts."
We are in the midst of a sea change, in which not only are many traditional relationships failing, but unexpected new arrangements are beginning to appear; gay marriages are surfacing, step-families abound, and many people are consciously choosing to live alone. As Kingma explains, these transformations should not be feared; instead, they represent a real opportunity. In the past, conventional relationships were often destroyed by an overemphasis on the nuts and bolts of psychology, on working to achieve the unattainable "perfect relationship" while ignoring our most vital selves--our souls. The glorious message of "The Future of Love is that the disturbing changeswe are all experiencing are actually part of the soul's plan, as it breaks down outdated conventions to bring us a new, fuller understanding of love.

Format: Paperback
Perhaps one of the most insightful, profound writers on relationships I've ever read. Particularly poignant were the 7 stages that every relationship experiences, be it 3 days or 30 years. I recommend it as a gift for young people as they enter into the realm of relationships as well as for those of us who have walked in that realm, that double edged sword of immense pain and immense love. Still I think her book is not quite complete and Lew Epstein's Trusting You are Loved is a perfect adjunct to Kingma's book. Again, they should be required reading for anyone in relationship.

Format: Paperback
A wonderful book that I wish everyone could read. Instead of seeing divorces as failures, they are steps on the road to realizing -- no, to EXPANDING ourselves into pure, unconditional love. Kingma explains why marriages/relationships really fail and how, as spiritually strong and independent beings, we can experience a more encompassing type of love. Relationships are "a journey of self-creation" where "our wholeness is emerging". "The future of love is true love, a great, sweet love that isn't pain but joy, not small but vast, not personal but spiritual". In the past, "our marriages become watered-down versions of the values of society, instead of vibrant emotional unions that nourish the people within them."

Daphne Rose Kingma, thank you!!! This book truly reflects what so many of us are feeling yet either have not had the courage nor the poetic ability to say - our relationships no longer fit into the definitions made by societies long ago, and it's okay! Our souls are on paths of enlightenment and to truly reach our destiny, we must acknowledge what we are seeking and create our relationships based in reality. I will recommend this book to everyone I know. The message in this book has a profound message for anyone in a new relationship, an old relationship, or someone who desires not to have a relationship. This book will help you examine your views on the relationships in your life and how they affect your life's journey. I've underlined, starred and dog-earred my copy, you will too.

"The Future of Love" is in the transformational category of Thom Hartmann's "The Prophet's Way" -- it has that much impact and ability to change your life. Highly recommended!

I've enjoyed it very much as I trully believe every word I read is the reality for the moment. Even thought I am divorced and am going through the same experiences for 6 years I still am not enjoying and still have a hard time to coop with what is going on around, still lots of mistakes that I am doing. So as I read Ms. Daphne Rose Kingma's book for the first time it helped me to understand much better what is going on as I am still waiting for 'gods' around me while it is not possible. So still as the generation behind I surelly think it will help lots to come back to reality. Thanks to you. Also if you ever want your book to be published in my country please let me know, as I believe they'll love it here...

What a delicious book! It sits so perfectly with me, the way Ms Kingma writes, what she says and how she says it. I feel I have come home!
The book will no doubt press people's buttons as it attempts to give another view of love altogether, one where love is given its freedom, not the confines that have strangled it for so long. Like a dove it is free to touch the hearts of whomever are open to it!
This book will change your life!
