Publisher's Summary

Conscious Uncoupling is a breakup or divorce that is characterized by goodwill, generosity, and respect. And it's an audiobook for anyone who has ever experienced a bad breakup of any kind - with a girlfriend, boyfriend, friend, boss, employee, husband, or wife - and who wants to try another way.

It's well past time we became more grown up and less damaging in how we dissolve relationships. Conscious Uncoupling is a tried-and-true, step-by-step process for completing the old relationship while holding out for the possibility of generating a happier and healthier one. Katherine Woodward Thomas teaches listeners how to have difficult conversations with the other person in their relationship, how to clear away any toxic emotional residue left between them, and how to train one's social community to adjust to the new form of the relationship and behave respectfully toward both individuals.

Conscious Uncoupling will also provide a cultural perspective on breakups and divorce and will help listeners understand their own experience inside of the larger context of society. And the book will initiate and support this new movement in culture by promoting greater awareness and introducing the critical skills to navigate the end of love in an empowered way.

Conscious Uncoupling promises to be a substantial book that will inspire people to begin thinking differently about breakups and divorce in addition to helping them heal their heartbreak.

Necessary for All

Wow, and I mean, wow.

First off, I have to say that I definitely recommend this book to anyone and everyone. Gaining the insight and understanding of how to part ways/change the dynamic or status of a relationship is invaluable, and, I feel, is still not widely known in our (American) culture today.

Having been through a less than amicable divorce myself (6 years of marriage after marrying at the age of 17), I really see the value of exiting/changing the status of a relationship in a more healthful way for everyone involved.

Is it possible to end a marriage union without both parties downright attacking and cutting down the value of the other that they so committed their love to?

I believed so. This book confirms it.

Highly practical. Not easy by any stretch of the imagination, but relatively simple and massively more rewarding.

I believe in the good of each of our relationships and bonds that we form. At one point, they were very good for us, and we knew it. Let us not discount the good experiences we have had and move forward, empowering each other to continue growing and find new happiness, instead of breaking one another down into pieces that take years and years to repair.

A relationship that ends does not equate to a "failure." There were good things and good times. And then there was a change. Let us learn from this and everyone's right to their own free will.

Let us end committed relationships with peace and blessings, not angst and hatred.

When we do what is right real the rewards

This book encourages all of us to behave with more charity in our lives. It is good in a time when mostly what we see is pain being enchaned by selfish choices. Nothing to fear here, read it and put the principals to practice. She really needs to right a Conscious Recoupling version though much of it would be very similar.

Did not prove to be practical for me.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The book was fine, stories were encouraging, and the reader was pleasant to listen to.

What about Katherine Woodward Thomas MA MFT’s performance did you like?

I enjoyed her voice and her stories were very intriguing.

Was Conscious Uncoupling worth the listening time?

It was, I just did not find it practical for me as I moved through my divorce.
