5.0 out of 5 stars Developing Who and How We Are in Conversation
Reviewed in the United States on 16 July 2020
The authors inform the “nuts and bolts” of compassionate conversation through their combined decades of experience with mediation, meditation, coaching, facilitating and teaching and their unique, respective diversities of gender, orientation, ethnic identity and life experience. They model what they write about, drawing from direct personal and professional experiences as well as from current and historical events.

Employing an integral approach, the book encourages readers to engage conversation in a way that deepens awareness, shifts behaviors, engages relationship and transforms systems. Said differently, we all engage conversation as we are – through our current sense of self, and the authors provide us with abundant resources and practices to help us recognize and develop who and how we are in the world. They make it clear that conversations will have different trajectories and chances for deep levels of compassion depending on the perspectives of the conversationalists: “it’s about me,” “it’s about us,” it’s about all of us,” and “it’s about all that is” each allows and invites unique possibilities.

Essentially, in the pages of this book the way to engage compassionate conversation is not a bulleted list to follow. The way to engage compassionate conversation is to do the work of developing and embodying compassion, and then engage in conversation. This book helps us do that. Not easy, but essential and invaluable.
