Kathlyn and Gay Hendricks are two of today's foremost relationship experts. Their bestselling book Conscious Loving has already become essential reading for tens of thousands of couples. Now, in The Conscious Heart, they identify the seven commitments that can transform from the inside out.

These seven simple--but powerful--choices enable couples to:

Use conflict to create greater understanding
Overcome the fears and defenses that block intimacy
Resolve struggles for control
Increase generosity and appreciation
Deepen passion, commitment, and aliveness
Release the creativity of each partner

Filled with numerous true-life stories--including how the authors survived and grew from their own midlife marital crisis--The Conscious Heart is an inspiring and instructive affirmation of the ultimate power of love.
