Using, as a basis, the tool developed for clients for over 20 years in the author's clinic, The Third Circle Protocol gives the understanding and offers the process to live a life of satisfying, loving and effective relationships without guilt or angst. It shows how to feel comfortable and flourish in the relationship with self and others. The Third Circle Protocol teaches the reader how to understand the often unspoken or unrecognized contracts we have with each other. And how to write new ones - when the current one isn't working. These contracts start with the relationship with yourself, your lover, your kids, your sister, or your parents. The centre core of your life is affirming interactive relationships, in your private life as well as at work. The exercises are simple, pragmatic and profound.
