NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A remarkable fusion of Eastern wisdom and Western practicality that offers strategies for clearing away the obstacles to love your life, for restoring the boundless soul of love, and for finding romance that will last a lifetime. Drawing on the Vedic texts of India and other great wisdom traditions, Dr. Deepak Chopra describes the seven stages of love, beginning and culminating in ecstasy. At each stage we hear stories like those of Clare, who only falls in love with unattainable men; of Frankie and Della, whose eight-year-old marriage has become a battleground of distrust; and of Gail and Jarrett, who near retirement without understanding how they will fit together into their new lives. As we see these couples overcome their obstacles, and as we work through a series of specific exercises, we anchor these lessons in our own experience. We all know the only way to enjoy the ecstasy of true romance for a lifetime is first to discover love within ourselves, but this task has often proved too difficult. Until now. In The Path to Love, you will find an astonishing blueprint to the uncharted territory of your own heart. First, Dr. Chopra orients us with timeless wisdom and contemporary real-life examples, then guides us step by step on the path to love. And once we discover the love inside ourselves, we start to see it everywhere—in lovers, husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, friends—until our own lives become self-sustaining acts of passion, romantic and fulling and miraculous.
