The Conscious Couple: Bringing the Dharma into Intimate Relationships
http://wld.mn/1Wlj4nE

Our sexual and romantic relationships can be like the tantric guru, who uncompromisingly directs our attention toward that within us which creates suffering and needs to be transformed.

Intimate relationships can also present us with opportunities for deep connection, joy, and self-transcendence.

Living with Kindness by Sangharakshita (ebook)
http://wld.mn/1tgwK4g
