Deepen connections with the people you love.
Build relationships with the people you meet.
We can go through each day—or a
lifetime—as sleepwalkers while awake, tossing and turning
on pillows that are as hard as appointment books, wandering a

in Our Relationships
It is possible to infuse every moment of
life with meaning—from the routine act to the
once-in-a-lifetime situation—and this first-of-its-kind
introduction to Martin Buber’s I-Thou shows you how.
Drawing on Jewish tradition, the science

accessible in the everyday to men and women in every walk of
