Banyen's Description: 

Words have the power to create profound healing—or incredible suffering—and yet even with the best intentions it can be difficult to build harmony and trust through speech. This pioneering text presents a four-part model for immediately connecting words with peace and well-being in relationships. Applying the principles of Nonviolent Communication to conversation, the book seeks to answer two central questions;

How can we express what’s alive in us?

How can we make life more wonderful?

In every interaction, every conversation and in every thought, you have a choice—to promote peace or perpetuate violence. International peacemaker, mediator and healer Marshall Rosenberg (author of the seminal Nonviolent Communication) shows you how the language you use is the key to enriching life—and how to develop an internal consciousness of peace rooted in the language you use each day.

Speak Peace is filled with inspiring stories, lessons and ideas drawn from over 40 years of mediating conflicts and healing relationships in some of the most war-torn, impoverished, and violent corners of the world. The book offers insight, practical skills, and powerful tools. Examples of applications in education, correctional facilities, parenting, and the business world are given.

Showing how you can create an internal consciousness of peace as the first step toward effective personal, professional, and social change, Speak Peace includes chapters on the mechanics of Nonviolent Communication, effective conflict resolution, transforming business culture, transforming enemy images, addressing terrorism, transforming authoritarian structures, expressing and receiving gratitude, and effective social change.

Nonviolent communication is a living process to keep us connected to the life within our self and the life that’s going on in other people… It helps us connect with one another by allowing our nature to come forward in how we give (and are given to) by others.

Speak Peace sums up decades of healing and peacework. It would be hard to list all the kinds of people who can benefit from reading this book, because it’s really any and all of us.” —Michael Nagler, author, Is There No Other Way? The Search for a Nonviolent Future
