Though our hearts crave intimacy, though our minds understand our deep need for it, the self-revelation it requires is often too daunting a task. In The Seven Levels of Intimacy, Matthew Kelly both acknowledges and calms our fears, while teaching us how to move beyond them to experience the power of true intimacy.

Matthew reveals that each relationship is built upon a pattern of interaction. In the beginning stages, we rely on casual interactions, gaining familiarity by focusing on superficialities and facts. We grow closer and begin to share our opinions, learning to accept each other and embrace the growing relationship. At last, we are deeply intimate and both willing and able to reveal our deepest fears. By moving through and building upon each level of intimacy, we find comfort and gain trust in our partners and ourselves. It is through mastering the seven levels of intimacy that we will break through to fully experiencing love, commitment, trust and happiness.

With profound insight and the use of powerful, everyday examples, Matthew Kelly explains how we can nurture the intimacy in our relationships. The Seven Levels of Intimacy redefines how we view our interactions with others. This new understanding leads us to successfully create the strong connections, deep joy and lasting bonds that we all long for. Download and start listening now!
