Her and Him. Love. Relationship. Sex
Her and Him. Love. Relationship. Sex (Viņa un Viņš. Mīlestība. Attiecības. Sekss )
Her and Him. Love. Relationship. Sex is made up of the author’s notes on his experiences, and of the conclusions he has come to while trying to understand himself and the depths of intimate relationships. On a broader scale, it’s also an investigation into relationships through the centuries, up to the present day. The author draws inspiration and a theoretical understanding of his topic from his teachers – thinkers, psychologists, theologians, mystics, spiritual practitioners, scientists and clergymen from all over the world – while introducing his readers to their ideas. These asides into the musings of other thinkers turn this work into an encyclopaedic reference volume. At the same time, it’s a very practical handbook, presenting information to the reader by taking a modern, clear and easy-to-understand approach. In this book, Rubenis examines sexuality and spirituality, marriage and divorce, men’s and women’s initiations, the human ego, productive humility and the need for forgiveness, along with many other topics. In doing so, he helps readers believe that good, lasting relationships are possible. He motivates his audience to evaluate current intimate relationships, as a way to discover their inherent potential. She and He encourages people whose past relationships have been unsuccessful to try again, but with a different approach this time.
