Practical and alive, this teaching directs you to your own presence, demonstrating how life’s biggest questions are answered in the stillness of your own heart.
Conscious Communication: A Language of Connection
Conscious Communication is a simple yet elegant set of relationship tools that enable us to stay connected with other people while recognizing our differences. Instead of establishing new rules to follow, this book offers specific skills that interrupt our rational evaluations and that make space for emotional honesty and compassion. As we learn to grow beyond our limited judgments of right and wrong and we describe what is true for us in the present moment, we connect with other people in a way that dissolves our isolation and provides a genuine sense of belonging and security.
Conscious Communication for Couples
Conscious Communication for Couples details a simple and effective way for people in committed relationships to express their feelings and needs and to listen to those of their partner. These skills enable you to understand each other, rather than fighting over who is right. They offer a way to talk honestly, without judgement or blame, and to work together to explore solutions that meet both of your needs.
