"I believe this book has the capacity to touch something inside you--deep enough to help you make significant, positive changes in your life."
--from the Foreword by Richard Carlson
Using principles of Health Realization that were espoused in his and Richard Carlson's international bestseller Slowing Down to the Speed of Life, author Joseph Bailey shows you how to slow down and make time for the love that you want.

Joseph Bailey is a licensed psychotherapist and faculty member of the center for Spirituality and Healing at the University of Minnesota School of Medicine.From Publishers Weekly:
In a follow-up to Slowing Down to the Speed of Life, which he co-authored with Carlson, Bailey applies his "Health Realization" principles to romantic relationships. The "slowing down" refers not so much to lifestyle or schedule as it does to thoughts: "A quiet mind does not denote a dull mind," Bailey writes, and he urges readers to refrain from judgment and to pay attention to their true Selves. Core principles include "deep listening" and its converse, "speaking from the heart." The writing is rife with metaphor-our true Self is the "jewel at the bottom of the pond," and we must realize as we "run on the treadmill of life" that our "feelings are like a best friend"-often to the detriment of clarity. Difficult-to-understand charts and motivational ephemera (he includes a lengthy poem written by his wife, for example) might further distract readers. Illustrative anecdotes, which occur more frequently in the latter half of the book, are more useful in demonstrating how Bailey's abstract theories may be put into practice. Though Bailey employs familiar nuggets of self-help doctrine (he encourages readers to aspire to the wisdom and purity of children and to seek the love within), he also offers insights into how to live a more fulfilling life.
