Communication and Conflict Resolution

This book gives a very simple and yet powerful way to communicate that avoids judgement and criticism or defensiveness and helps to resolve conflict. What is offered is a heart-centred, responsive and compassionate way to ask for what you need and to listen to others. I am always recommending this book.
An easy to use and very effective introductory book on identifying communication, listening ‘gliches’ and learning a ‘heart-centered’ communication style.
This is a classic for anyone needing support to uncover and release family traumas and conditioning and also find compassion and forgiveness.
For getting out of the cycles of ‘co-dependent’ caring and efforts to ‘fix’ others. Practical and effective.

An effective method to identify the thoughts and feelings that cause suffering and how to change or release them.
A guide for the inner journey of exploring unconscious thoughts and feelings and a process of healing (based on the author’s own healing experience).
Daily readings to inspire thoughtful reflection about life. A precious gem of a book that invites the reader to glean value from even the toughest circumstances and reveals how one can find joy, peace, and beauty in everyday moments. Having faced the threat of cancer in his life, the author brings sensitivity and depth to the writing.
The title says it all. Loving yourself is fundamental to all healing.
