Banyen's Description: 

Here’s a mini-course in how to deal with interpersonal conflict—from a Zen perspective.

With her book, her hugely popular online courses, and her workshops at venues throughout the US and the world, Diane Musho Hamilton is one of the most highly visible of experts on conflict management—with good reason: her methods, which combine Zen wisdom with principles from Ken Wilber’s Integral Theory and her own extensive experience in conflict resolution, really work.

This book encourages us to open a conversation about difference. It is based on the assumption that the harmony that includes our differences is deeper and more durable than the one that doesn’t. The book is written for those in relationships of all kinds: lovers and friends, married couples, coworkers and their managers, leaders and team members, teachers and students, parents and young people—anyone who is in a relationship, one that is “good as far as it goes,” with the wish that by including our differences, we may deepen to a place of genuine unity.

In this book, she turns her attention to one of the main places conflict manifests: in intimate relationships. She provides a very practical guide to navigating conflict in love and to coming to satisfying outcomes where both partners feel heard and have their needs honored. The book can be thought of as a kind of relationship "first aid kit," but also as something all couples should read in order to foster a harmonious and respectful loving relationship.

Differences have to be worked with, acknowledged, soothed, integrated… So the trick is to discover the sameness that pervades and includes our differences and unity in the details of our everyday life.

We are constantly in relationship with others, and here Diane Hamilton has offered us a playbook to insure that every one of those relationships become more fluid, joyful, and harmonious. Read this book! It will masterfully help you on a journey to greater love and acceptance.” —Lodro Rinzler, author of Love Hurts

“Excellent medicine for today’s ills.” —Pat Enkyo O’Hara, author of Most Intimate
