"An expression of deep love and vulnerability, and the celebration of what commitment can be." --John Gray, author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus
With thirty-five years of marriage and twenty-five years of clinical experience, popular workshop leaders and columnists Joyce and Barry Vissell have helped hundreds of people break the cycle of failed relationships by showing that a relationship is an opportunity to grow as an individual--to connect deeply not just with another person but with your own heart as well.

Joyce and Barry Vissell, a nurse and a psychiatrist, and a couple for more than thirty-five years, are the authors of five books: Meant to Be, The Heart's Wisdom, The Shared Heart, Models of Love, and Risk to Be Healed.
Popular speakers, they have offered programs at Omega Institute, New York Open Center, Interface, Whole Life Expos, and hundreds of churches. They are also the recipients of the Aquarian Award, a national honor given to those who have made a significant contribution toward world healing. They currently live at their center and home near Santa Cruz, California.
