What can we learn from our fascination with love stories? How can we use this to better our relationships and cultivate excitement in our lives? Dr. Niloo Dardashti, producer of Into the Twilight Haze (a documentary about the Twilight phenomenon), explores these questions in an insightful manner that everyone can relate to. Using these issues as a vehicle to unpack common relationship challenges, she engages the reader by motivating a process of reflection and self-discovery, while explaining:
– How to decipher what is a “me” issue versus an “us” issue
– What ingredients synergistically create passion and fulfillment in relationships, how to increase a sense of stimulation and aliveness in your own life
– How to balance the need for getting satisfaction from within versus through an “other”
– How to balance seeking stimulation/novelty and embracing the sameness of everyday life.
