Do you have any book recommendations to help me prepare?

Here are some of our favorite books on love and relationship that you might want to get a copy of to read before or after the course:

 

  • The 5 Personality Patterns: Your Guide to Understanding Yourself and Others and Developing Emotional Maturity by Steven Kessler: An incredible book that maps some of Wilhelm Reich’s observations about human development and core wounding patterns alongside the psychology of personality. During our deeper dive retreats we often give people copies of this book. It’s a gem!
  • Gene Keys: Unlocking the Higher Purpose Hidden in Your DNA by Richard Rudd: Probably my favorite spiritual / relational treatise book of all time. This book is a blueprint of humanity’s evolution through the 64 shadows that we express into the 64 gifts that those shadows become as we evolve and integrate onward into the 64 Siddhic states that represent our next evolutionary leap. It’s incredible and the kind of thing you want to digest slowly a few pages at a time
  • Love’s Hidden Symmetry: What Makes Love Work in Relationships by Burt Hellinger: Another book we’ve been deeply influenced by as Burt is considered the father of Family Systems and Family Constellations work. The title tells you that for every conflict that is seemingly ‘your pattern’s fault’ there is a hidden symmetry that is holding the dynamic in place. It’s incredibly dense and another book to be read slowly but it’s rich.
