Robert Augustus Masters, PhD, is an American integral psychotherapist and author. Masters’ work centers on blending the physical, psychological, and spiritual aspects of our lives for emotional intelligence, greater intimacy, maturity in relationships, and authentic awakening.
The passage from immature to mature monogamy is not only a journey of ripening intimacy with a partner but also a journey into and through zones of ourselves that may be very difficult to accept and integrate with the rest of our being.
"Our shadow," teaches Robert Augustus Masters, "is our internal storehouse for the parts of us that we’ve disowned or rejected, or are otherwise keeping in the dark." Everyone has a shadow, but all too many of us are unaware of it.
Robert and Diane share with Julie what their relationship feels like from the inside, how they keep their connection alive moment-to-moment, and how they handle reactivity and other potential obstacles to intimacy.
