Tami Simon w/ Robert Augustus Masters - Emotional Intimacy: A Comprehensive Guide for Connecting with the Power of Your Emotions


Robert Augustus Masters, author of Spiritual Bypassing: When Spirituality Disconnects Us from What Really Matters (2010), an instant classic, Transformation through Intimacy, Revised Edition: The Journey toward Awakened Monogamy (2012), and many other excellent books, has published his newest book, Emotional Intimacy: A Comprehensive Guide for Connecting with the Power of Your Emotions (2013), with Sounds True, where he also released the excellent Knowing Your Shadow: Becoming Intimate with All That You Are (2013).

Here is the description of the book from Masters' website:
Emotions link our bodies, thoughts, and conditioning at multiple levels. And the capacity to be intimate with our emotions, teaches Robert Augustus Masters, is essential for creating fulfilling relationships, relationships in which awareness, love, passion, and integrity function as one. With Emotional Intimacy, this respected psychospiritual teacher and author invites us to explore: 
• How to deepen our emotional literacy
• Cultivating intimacy with all of our emotions
• The ways that we numb our unwanted feelings, and how to revive them and welcome them back
• How to identify our emotions, fully experience them, and skillfully express them
• Resolving and healing from old emotional wounds
• Gender differences in emotional literacy and expression
• Steps for bringing greater intimacy and depth into our relationships
• In-depth guidance for those facing depression, anxiety, and crippling shame
• Why “blowing off steam” can often make us feel worse, and what constitutes healthy catharsis
• Navigating activity and stimulus overload, a collective emotional pandemic of our times
• Individual chapters for fully engaging with fear, anger, joy, jealousy, shame, grief, guilt, awe, and the full spectrum of our emotions
In the two-part podcast below, Sounds True founder and CEO Tami Simon speaks with Masters about his new book, as well as other topics, including shadow work.
