Learn How to Love Like a God or Goddess

  Three thousand years ago, the ancient Greeks created gods and goddesses out of a need to understand themselves and their relationships with one another. For the first time ever, the existence of these archetypes in modern day romance is explained in GODS AND GODDESSES IN LOVE by Agapi Stassinopoulos, an essential guide which shows how to put the gods and goddesses to work in achieving the greatest love attainable. Now, men and women of all ages can benefit from these archetypes by learning their own god or goddess personality, and how the two can work together to have the most successful, loving relationship by acknowledging their vulnerabilities and affirming their strengths.

GODS AND GODDESSES IN LOVE tells the basic stories of the seven goddesses and eight gods. Not only do these myths entertain as they tell the stories of these strong, independent, passionate deities, but they also enlighten women and men as to how their own personal behavior on the trail of true love may become more successful.

Included are two fun and fascinating quizzes: one for women to determine their own dominant personality type and which Goddess she most embodies; and a second that will help every woman understand more about the “god” she is involved with, or searching for. From the Goddess Aphrodite to the God Zeus, women can identify their own goddess type, their most desired god, and gain an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses that each of these types brings to a relationship.

In the book, the seven archetypal goddesses are portrayed in modern terms, highlighting not only each goddess’s unique strengths, but also the stumbling blocks she is likely to encounter in a relationship with her partner. Also included in each chapter are interviews with real couples that reveal how they learned to understand each other’s personality types and overcome their obstacles to discover the strongest, most unconditional true love.

For those who desire the self-knowledge to find their ideal partner, and for those who want to empower themselves and their partners to attain the most rewarding relationship, GODS AND GODDESSES IN LOVE provides an uplifting and instructive guide for achieving the greatest fulfillment in love.
