About the Book
Say What You Mean: A Mindful Approach to Nonviolent Communication is a step-by-step guide for meaningful conversations that bring people together. It is the first book to integrate mindfulness with the modern discipline of Nonviolent Communication and somatic healing.
Whether it's managing conflict at work, navigating a political divide with a relative, or strengthening bonds at home—communicating effectively is what makes or breaks our relationships.
