The dictionary defines intimacy as “a close, familiar and usually affectionate or loving personal relationship with another person.”
For couple relationships, we define intimacy as “sharing your private thoughts and feelings, wants and needs in a close emotional and physical relationship.”
We use the word “private” because these are things you normally wouldn’t share with anyone else. So this relationship is special and clearly different from your other relationships like your roomates or friends or family members.
Radical Intimacy goes even further than regular intimacy. Besides sharing your private thoughts feelings, wants and needs, we include fears and secrets and fantasies and desires. Everything inside you without holding anything back. In addition to emotional and physical intimacy, we include spirituality or spiritual intimacy here as well.
So does that sound scary? It is! It requires a tremendous amount of trust, risk-taking, emotional maturity self-confidence and self-knowledge.
In this recorded program we dive deep into how to achieve Radical Intimacy, including new strategies not covered in the Radical Marriage book. Enjoy!
