Gary says that most people enter into marriage with many different intentions. He says a spiritual partnership is a dynamic that can be entered into with just one intention...spiritual growth. "It doesn't mean you go out and you say, 'I'm going to create a spiritual partnership,'" he says. "It means that your intention is to become aware and responsible for yourself."
According to Gary, spiritual partnerships have four main requirements—commitment, compassion, courage and conscious communication.
Gary hopes that couples everywhere will stop looking outward and begin looking inward...like Oprah did back in 1989 after reading his book Seat of the Soul.
"[That book] has been the single greatest force in changing the way I saw the world and saw myself," Oprah says. "For the first time in my life, I understood how my intentions were creating my reality. ... When I learned that principle of the intention, it changed the way I operated my entire life."
