We have a wonderful relationship. We just flow through life together. We don’t ever clash. We are never alienated. And there’s nothing complicated about what we do. There are just a few things to avoid and a few practices to do, and bingo, it works.

When we first started sharing our experiences in our first book Secrets of a Successful Relationship, we often heard comments like “Well, how is that possible,” or “You are probably just suppressing your feelings,” or “Are you guys for real?”

You just have to believe that’s how it is for us. That it’s possible. We offer our life together up to you for proof. If you need further convincing, think of other people you’ve met or read about who fit that description, even if it took them a long time to get there.

Book Report
Many people say they're amazed that we can write together without arguing, yet we do this several times per week. Watch this video and find out how.

Blog Report
We are excited to be announcing a new offering. Occasionally on Fridays we will be either sharing guest blogs or featuring authors and speakers who work in the field of peaceful relationships.

This Friday 8/12/2016 we will be featuring Dr. Gail Brenner, a licensed Ph.D. psychologist with over 20 years of experience offering psychotherapy. In her work as a therapist, she “invites people to return to their essential wholeness, to shed false identities and realize the truth of who they are. Problems are seen as opportunities; the illusion of the separate self as a doorway to enduring happiness.”

Successful Relationship Reading Corner
This week's blog is on belief and intention within relationships. Here are some articles of interest on this topic.

3 Questions To Ask Yourself Before You Enter A Relationship
"Recently, I did something radical; I entered into a relationship with the intention of extending love. I consciously set the goal of peace."

How to Attract Peaceful & Nurturing Relationships "I used to think relationships had to always be hard. Full of strife, jealousy and distrust. Subject to harsh words, crossing the line, anger and resentment. And I found myself in relationship after relationship, whether friendship or romantic, that only confirmed this.... Eventually, I just couldn’t take it anymore… I wanted peace. I wanted understanding. I wanted my relationships to feel calm, nurturing and, most of all, respectful."

Why Are Intention and Belief Important in Relationships? This is an earlier post by us (Phil and Maude) on the same subject. "You have to believe that a peaceful non-conflictual relationship is possible before you are likely to experience it.... Once you have the belief that such a form of relating is possible, you have to make it your intention to have this in your relationship."

Spreading peace one relationship at a time,
