The power of a conversation to transform us for the better is underrated.
A newly released book by interdisciplinary researchers Diane Musho Hamilton, Gabriel Menegale Wilson, and Kimberly Myosai Loh is shedding light on how compassionate dialogue can create long-lasting social change.
Musho, Menegale and Loh began writing Compassionate Conversations: How to Speak and Listen from the Heart in 2018 as a response to the polarizing political and social in the US.
Together the three experts – Musho an award-winning mediator; Menegale a leadership coach and peace builder; and Loh a conflict resolution and negotiation specialist- developed a framework combining Zen Buddhism and Integral Theory to provide guidance on simple and practical conflict resolution skills that can be used at personal, local and international levels.
Released on July 2020, the book comes at a time where global health, police brutality, gender and racial injustices challenges have exacerbated structural, cultural and direct violence against several populations and communities all over the world.
In celebration of this new release, the co-authors are inviting readers to join:
🕊BIASES, POWER & SHADOW WORKSHOP🕊 Friday, August 7, 8-11 am PT (9 MT/11 ET/5 CET). https://lnkd.in/eMGEG4U
