I bought this book for my family as it's clear the dynamics that plagued my parents have been inherited by us the children. I won't let the same stuff impact my children so it stops here. This book has provided the tools and understanding to end generational pain... and that's no small feat. Heart IQ is the real deal and I would urge any earnest seeker of truth to buy this book and apply its contents.
My wife and I and our marriage have benefited so much from this book and the accompanying free online bite size webinars. If you're relationship is a little stuck in some areas, you and your partner don't feel truly heard and felt by the other and you feel yourself in defence to the other more often and you would like to bring more of You to the realtionship and to your daily life in general then I really recommend this book!
Amazing book - which I also purchased for my entire family - it is that important. Not only is it practical and down to earth, and has great tools and insights for solving nitty gritty parts of relationships, when the going gets tough. But also for deepening our connection in relationships, something everyone surely must want!
If you really crave good tools that helps create good relationships, then you should definitely buy and read this book. If you want to get even more of the good in life, then you should also go to any of Heart IQ programs available on the IQ Heart Center in Holland. There are both on-site training in the Netherlands, but also on the Internet.
This book is what the world has been crying out for. It's called Insights to Intimacy and may suggest this is just about romantic relationships, but it applies to all relationships with family, friends, neighbours, co-workers, and anyone with whom we interact. I have attended a number Christian's retreats and watched with awe as he has introduced and refined the practices which he used in his retreats over the last 10years. He has now put that knowledge and experience honed over that time into this book, and has also included a online training course to bring the words and practices he describes alive. If we just start practicing the exercises in this book with each other, the world will start to heal the division, separation, violence and hatred we see reported in the media everyday. Christian Pankhurst has captured the essence of what it is to love one another and how to make it a practice in our daily lives. To give each other our complete attention, to listen without being distracted by rehearsing what we want to say next, to be still and really listen to our inner guidance, to create the safety to share our inner world with each other so others "get us". To share how we feel and for that to be received in a loving supportive way. If this was taught to our children by Heart centred parents who incorporated the practices into their own lives and it was taught in our schools, what a wonderful world we could start to create on this planet. This book can change the world. I cannot recommend this book more highly.
The work of this brilliant man has changed my life forever. I have always been touched, upgraded and grateful for his Heart IQ work - but I am absolutely over the moon about this book!
He has managed to capture the ancient (and forgotten!) language of love & intimacy on these pages in such a beautiful and practical way. And you can imagine my surprise when I saw that he has linked certain chapters of the book to an online companion course! What?! This was such a great idea...as a reader, I could read about the practice and then go watch a video to actually SEE real couples using the practices! Well done! Kudos Christian Pankhurst! Thank you for being genius and for caring enough to write this book.
