On this spoken-word audio presentation Deepak Chopra, Barbara DeAngelis, John Gray, Erica Jong, Thomas Moore, and John O'Donohue explore the emotional and spiritual rewards of relating to a soul mate or to a friend. Both kinds of relationships involve overcoming separation and opening ourselves to the lasting joys of true communication.

O'Donohue is especially cogent in his exploration of friendship and its connection to longing, growth, and change. DeAngelis comes across with some poignant observations on the best way to deal with heartbreak after a relationship fails. Gray succinctly charts the different seasons in a marriage, while Chopra talks about the impact intention has upon the unfolding of love. Moore shares some of the lessons he has learned about soul in his marriage.
