#23 | The Divine Path of Intimacy - Jack Zimmerman (Flesh and Spirit)

My guest today is Jack Zimmerman, an elder in the realm of relational intimacy.

He is the co-author of The Way of Council (with Gigi Coyle), what I consider to be a key book on teaching the foundations of functional community.  He is also the co-author of Flesh and Spirit: The Mystery of Intimate Relationship, which he wrote with his life partner Jaquelyn McCandless.

In our conversation, we cover the origin and foundations of the council practice. We explore the mystery of partnership: from understanding resonating wounds and the nature of projection, to how to tune into the consciousness of the Third - that relational space between you and another person.

And finally, he speaks how walking the path of radical intimacy is to partner with the evolutionary intelligence of life itself.
