Publisher's Summary

We all yearn for intimacy, but we avoid it. We want it badly, but we often run from it. At some deep level, we sense that we have a profound need for intimacy, but we are afraid to go there. Why?

We avoid intimacy because having intimacy means exposing our secrets. Being intimate means sharing the secrets of our hearts, minds, and souls with another fragile and imperfect human being. Intimacy requires that we allow another person to discover what moves us, what inspires us, what drives us, what eats at us, what we are running toward, what we are running from, what self-destructive enemies lie within us, and what wild and wonderful dreams we hold in our hearts.

In The Seven Levels of Intimacy, Matthew Kelly teaches us in practical and unforgettable ways how to know these things about ourselves and how to share ourselves more deeply with the people we love. This book will change the way you approach your relationships forever!

Life Changing

I’m so happy this book was recommended to me. I’ve always loved Matthew Kelly but this book enhanced so many of my relationships! My favorite part is understanding that what I give my energy to can drive so many other things. Amazing. I’m going to read it at least twice a year!

Straightforward and action focused

I plan on buying the kindle version too so as to more easily process the exercises.

A book to read and re-read.

While the author ccassionally becomes a bit monotone in his reading (hence the 4 stars), the book is well worth the read...or rather listen. It is definitely one I'll reread.

Phenomenal

A truly wonderful book. Gets to the very core of what a true relationship calls for. If you are closed off to making yourself vulnerable and engaging relationships with your whole heart this may prove to be a difficult read or one that falls flat. I hope that is not the case.

Good but.....

This book isn't bad but IT IS too repetitive. It became boring quickly as I could only hear the terms " best version of yourself" so much before I lost interest
