The Lost Art of Good Conversation

In a world of iPhones and connectivity to social media and email, we are all in constant communication with one another. Then why are so many people feeling burned out, distant from colleagues, and abandoned by family and friends? The Sakyong uses the basic principles of the Shambhala tradition – meditation and a sincere belief in the inherent wisdom, compassion, and courage of all beings – to help readers to listen and speak more mindfully with loved ones, co-workers, strangers, and even ourselves.
