Living Nonviolent Communication: Practical Tools to Connect and Communicate Skillfully in Every Situation

By Marshall B Rosenberg
You re about to have an uncomfortable meeting with your boss. The principal just called about your middle-schooler. You had a fight with your partner and it s an hour before bed. You know your next move will go a long way toward defining your relationships with these individuals. So what do you do?We all find ourselves in situations similar to these and too often resort to the same old patterns of behavior defending our need to be right, refusing to really listen, speaking cruelly out of anger and frustration, or worse. But there is another way. Living Nonviolent Communication gives you practical training in applying Dr. Marshall Rosenberg s renowned process in the areas he has most often been asked for counsel: Conflict resolutionWorking with angerSpiritual practiceHealing and reconciliationLoving relationshipsRaising childrenNonviolent Communication has flourished for four decades across 35 countries for a simple reason: it works. Now you can learn to activate its healing and transformational potential, with Living Nonviolent Communication."

"Nonviolent Communication can change the world. More importantly, it can change your life. I cannot recommend it highly enough." -Jack Canfield Author of Chicken Soup for the Soul series "A Best Spiritual Book of the Year" Spirituality & Practice Marshall Rosenberg is a clinical psychologist and the founder and director of educational services for the Center for Nonviolent Communications (CNVC), an international nonprofit organization that offers workshops and training in 35 countries. He has initiated peace programs in war-torn areas including Rwanda, Nigeria, Malaysia, the Middle East, Serbia, Croatia, and Ireland.

It is so helpful and hopeful to have a peace activist and a resourceful organization out in the conflicted and adversarial world teaching nonviolent communication. Just listen for a while to talk radio hosts spewing hatred and advocating violence on a daily basis. Then tune in any of the television talk shows and listen to the uncivil discourse of shouting instead of dignified dialogue. Then consider that little training is given to children in resolving conflict through listening, compassion, empathy, or forgiveness; Rosenberg covers them all in this fine book.

He also touches upon the spiritual basis of nonviolent communications, writing about giving of ourselves, manifesting love, emphasizing connections with others, making the most of your Divinely given energy, practicing empathy, and expressing gratitude. These are sorely needed in a world where class warfare, political rivalries, and global conflicts have brought more violence.

Bless Rosenberg for his peace programs. Read about his approach in this paperback and then reflect upon the fact that neither of the candidates for U.S. President will put forward a peace strategy for the years to come. -by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat Spirituality & Practice, July 2012
