Editor's Note

Communication is key…

This powerful tome by revered Buddhist monk and Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh is full of positive aphorisms, which reveal that intentionality is the key to effective self-expression.

Description

Zen master Thick Nhat Hanh, bestselling author of Peace is Every Step and one of the most respected and celebrated religious leaders in the world, delivers a powerful path to happiness through mastering life's most important skill.

How do we say what we mean in a way that the other person can really hear?

How can we listen with compassion and understanding?

Communication fuels the ties that bind, whether in relationships, business, or everyday interactions. Most of us, however, have never been taught the fundamental skills of communication — or how to best represent our true selves. Effective communication is as important to our well-being and happiness as the food we put into our bodies. It can be either healthy (and nourishing) or toxic (and destructive).

In this precise and practical guide, Zen master and Buddhist monk Thick Nhat Hanh reveals how to listen mindfully and express your fullest and most authentic self. With examples from his work with couples, families, and international conflicts, The Art of Communicating helps us move beyond the perils and frustrations of misrepresentation and misunderstanding to learn the listening and speaking skills that will forever change how we experience and impact the world.

A HarperAudio production.

    Excellent suggestions of tools to use in nearly ANY situation we may face that might be difficult to communicate our true needs. I’m tempted to buy the paperback so that i have these tools on shelf for reference. Especially in regards to the peace treaty, such a great idea. We will implement this in our household.

    I found this book to be very helpful in improving my verbal communication skills. I learned that the most important part of communication is simply being mindful... fully present- in the here & now.

    This book should be taught in schools! I loved the message, it's incredible how much power we have in ourselves and we are not aware of it!
    I am so grateful for having the chance to listen and practice so much wisdom ?

    Incredible. So much to learn and practice. I knew a few of the insight but it’s incredible how far we can improve to communicate with ourselves and others.

    Beautiful, calming, soothing. I wish everyone would implement this, but we can certainly start with ourselves.
