Lions Roar : January 2009
SHAMBHALA SUN JANUARY 2009 19 me. As a couples’ therapist focusing on relational and emotional therapy, I know that for partners to be able to experience a deep bond and emotional resonance they must share and touch each other’s deep, dark, and sometimes ugly aspects. With- out this level of sharing, it is impossible to have a strong bond and, therefore, to have a satisfying and sustaining relationship. Resonating with a long-term partner creates the oxytocin, the “love hormone,” which is easy to have in the romantic phase of a relationship but extremely difficult to generate once the initial romance has died off. And it always does. It takes much effort and skill to produce this con- nection through life’s many, many struggles, failures, and disappointments. Christopher Diggins Langley, Washington PERFECT LOVE I am so glad you made rela- tionships the subject of your last issue. Although we may like to impatiently run out the door to join campaigns and causes of all sorts, relationship is an incredibly powerful ground to use if we want to develop love and patience from the inside out. I liked the way that the articles avoided stereotypical notions of male and female roles, and invited people to find inner free- dom through relationship, by allowing space between people to be as important as to- getherness. When Buddhists are known for peaceful positive relationships, the dharma will become of greater interest to all. Terri Crisp Albany, New York ♦ Susan Piver A Beginner’s Guide to Meditation This book-and-CD combi- nation offers both written and audio instructions in basic practices from the Tibetan Buddhist, Insight Meditation, Zen, and yoga traditions—as taught by some of Amer ica’s most respected Buddhist teachers: Sakyong Mipham, Lar ry Rosenberg, Edward Espe Brown, Sharon Salzberg, Judith Lief, Tulku Thondup, and Richard Faulds.
