Book Description

April 1 2005 Nonviolent Communication Guides
According to Marshall B. Rosenberg, Ph.D., our most basic spiritual need is to contribute to the well being of others and ourselves. His brief, unscripted reflections on the spiritual basis of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) will inspire you not only to connect with the Divine in yourself and others, but to begin to create a world of empathy and compassion, where the language we use is the key to enriching life.

Discover an intensely satisfying and joyful spiritual experience that begins with you. In these rich pages, learn how NVC can help you achieve a more practical, applied spirituality.

Discover how to:
- Strengthen the connection between your actions and your spiritual values
- Let go of enemy images and moralistic judgments, and experience our common humanity
- Connect with others from a place of compassionate energy

I did not find the content of the book very useful and learnt very little from it. Okay for just casual reading

I have bought several of Marshal Rosenbergs books teaching on NVC. It really has helped me internally to sort through reality and my judgement still keeping with the word of God!

4.0 out of 5 stars Practical Soirituality: The Spiritual Basis of Nonviolent Communication Oct. 28 2007
By Alison H. Regan - Published on
This short book is a good synopsis of Rosenberg's book Nonviolent Communication; I liked the format, which includes questions to the author regarding how to use NVC in relationships of a more spiritual nature. Also, Rosenberg shares his own spirituality behind this method of communication. A good little book to refer to on a regular basis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful as all Nonviolent Communication literature. A must for everyone who communicates, is living, and has needs. Dec 21 2008
By Sandra Marmar - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I would recommend that you read "The Surprising purpose of Anger", first. Especially if you are jaded, been through therapy, recovery, or self help. You will be stunned to find the gift of Non-violent communication. I have read almost all of the other books by Marshall B. Rosenberg. This is the last one I read. I plan to purchase to send to all of my friends that are anti-religion. It shows the morality of what religions should teach. I have always said I am not a religious person, but a very spiritual person. This book shows the upper path of living. An addict once said "Every person has a hole in their being and it is the same size as a high power. If you do not find spirituality you will need to fill that hole with something; drugs, food, possessions or something else".

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing May 29 2011
By Zeno - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I admit I had high expectations for this book after having read The Surprising Purpose of Anger by the same author. However, unlike that book which is at the same time accessible and profound, this book is repetitive and trite. The entire point of the conversation (it's in question and answer format) is that within everyone is a "blessed divine energy" that is only accessed when we allow ourselves to experience feelings and needs, both our own and other people's, without judgement or evaluation. There are better explorations of how to do this in Rosenberg's other books. I can't help but 'judge' that this book is geared toward the new age crowd that likes to have practical advice sugar coated in mystical language, as if simply calling something "blessed" and "divine" somehow automatically elevates both the message and the reader.

By Rosie - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This tiny little book contains the spiritual connection that is the basis of non-violent communication. If I ever had a list of essential reading, this book would be on it. Speaking PeaceSpeaking Peace is a great audio book is you want an audio companion to non-violent communication. Practical Spirituality: The Spiritual Basis of Nonviolent Communication (Nonviolent Communication Guides)Recommended for everyone. Marshall Rosenberg should win the Nobel Peace Prize for this concept in action.
