Publisher's Summary

“Why are so many of us at times completely baffled by a relationship? How can we think we know someone so well and admit in the end that we hardly knew that person at all? Why do many people who work diligently and strenuously to gain wholeness and balance still feel so frustrated about having a fulfilling relationship? Why have so many people given up on love?” (from the prologue)

John Bradshaw’s best-selling books and compelling PBS series have touched and changed millions of lives. Now, in Creating Love, he offers us a new way to understand our most crucial relationships - with our romantic partners and spouses, with our parents and children, with friends and coworkers, with ourselves, and with God.

Bradshaw’s compassionate approach shows that many of us have been literally “entranced” by past experiences of counterfeit love, so we unknowingly re-create patterns that can never fulfill us. Here he provides both the insights and the precise tools we need to keep those destructive patterns from repeating in the present. And then he shows how we can open ourselves to the soul-building work of real love - and create healthy, loving relationships where we can be fully ourselves in every part of our lives.

For anyone who is in a relationship

John Bradshaw's simple explanation of why we are where we are rings so true. I only hope that anyone married or thinking of getting married pick up this audio and listen together. There is hope but we need to understand how we got where we are.

Good content; not so great sound quality

Another helpful John Bradshaw book that helps you figure out how your past can impact your present relationships. I love hearing John Bradshaw's enthusiastic voice, but sometimes the sound is a bit tinny and the music sounds like it's on a tape deck. That said, it's still a worthwhile listen if you're more focused on the actual teaching on not on it sounding clean and perfect.

Content is great - audio is terrible in parts

If you think this book might interest you, then definitely get it! I’m really glad I did. And I will listen to it again. Note that he audio production on parts is really poor quality. I found it distracting and annoying, but the content still rings through as excellent. This info should somehow be required learning as a young adult.

Fundamental for my relationship with love

An approachable understanding of love and traumatic healing: these fundamentals will stay with me as I venture into the world of creating a strong self reliance and inner child work- and venture on forwards into a healthy loving romantic relationship.

Can be life changing to many

I recommend listening to his Homecoming book and familiarize yourself with his notions on saving the inner child before reading this book that focuses on relationships. I amazed how little I appreciated the effect of our family upbringing on our personal relationships. Of all the self help professionalism, John Bradshaw is the one who resonated the most with me. His personal journey involved alcohol addiction; thus, he tells his approach with empathy for those who are suffering.

great insight to "source relationships"

learning to recognize the trance I've been living in and how it has protected me for many year and what use I can make of it, to become a more purpose filled human, is a great insight I received in the big.

My experiences are beginning tomake sense.

Finally I can see the woods for the trees. I can see and feel the light from the Sun.
I am stepping into my Life and not necessarily the life I grew up with.
I can breath and relax more.
