Couples and the Art of Playing
Three Easy and Enjoyable Ways to Nurture and Heal Relationships

by Keith Hackett 

Check out my new website with additional resources for play, advice, counseling, and marriage help:


Couples and the Art of Playing, the essential 
guide for creating healthy relationships."Couples and the Art of Playing" is for anyone in a committed relationship - married, living together, engaged or dating' and is user-friendly for any sexual orientation, culture or belief system.

You will be reminded of what you already know and will be encouraged to do it again together - play and have fun.  Then a simple ten minutes a day communication tool will be offered that can dramatically change how you relate to each other.  Finally, you will learn how to build each other's self-esteem.


What makes Couples and the Art of Playing different from other books on relationships?

  • Short and can be read in around two hours.

  • Limited to three easy and life changing concepts:

    • play

    • 5 & 5 playful sharing and listening

    • positive playful manipulation

  • Illustrated by examples with which the reader can relate.

In addition, couples...

  • ...who apply these techniques begin to enjoy each other.

  • ...are better able to talk and resolve conflicts because they are focusing on play, not work.

  • ...sexual pleasure is often increased without having to focus on sex.

  • ...develop good habits and have hope for their future together in a playful, creative, empowering, nurturing, and growing relationship.

  • ...who continue to apply these three simple techniques can offer an alternative to violence and help to drastically lower the divorce rate.
