The Art of Love: The Craft of Relationship
Date of Publication: May 2010

Millions of books on relationships have been printed in the last ten years. Why do we need another one? We need The Art of Love: The Craft of Relationship for the same reasons that over four and a half million readers wanted Spencer Johnson’s Who Moved My Cheese in a market that already had over 12,000 titles in print on the subject of change. Following Johnson’s methods of teaching to a broad, modern audience, our book presents the profound principles that form a loving relationship in an easily accessible manner. Using a deceptively simple approach, it will help people shift their attitudes and give them the skills to create a loving, long-lasting partnership.

Resurrecting the Unicorn Masculinity in the 21st Century
Date of Publication: January 2009

In the present day, our culture's evolving masculine spirit seems to be sputtering out. We began with a powerful, creative force, yet somewhere along our path, phallus has been rendered impotent. The unicorn, this wondrous masculine symbol, has been reduced to a limp-horned stuffed animal found in novelty stores or worse yet, discarded to a dusty old shelf of a second-hand thrift shop.

The Fire and the Rose The Wedding of Spirituality and Sexuality
Date of Publication: September 2007

Our encounters with love, spirituality, and sexuality play a major role in shaping who we are. These powerful aspects of our lives are woven into the pattern that forms our potential for wholeness. Through growing consciousness, sexuality and spirituality can support our efforts to live more passionately and to understand love in all of its forms. In this stimulating and inspiring book, Jungian analyst Bud Harris, Ph.D., challenges us to reconsider our views of spirituality and sexuality as opposites and bring them into harmony and creativity. Together, we can heal one of our culture’s great wounds of the soul.

Sacred Selfishness: A Guide to Living
Date of Publication: February 2005

Bud defines Sacred Selfishness as valuing ourselves enough to develop into "authentic" human beings who give back vitality and hope to the people around us. It is acquiring what Emerson refers to as "character—a reserved force which acts directly by presence, and without means."
