Much emphasis in couples’ enrichment focuses on verbal communication, especially articulating feelings and mending bridges. This is valuable work, yet nonverbal communications are often ignored. The truth is that being in touch with one’s bodily feelings and attuned to the other’s feelings involve a unique set of skills that can bring a couple to new heights of love and connection.
