An Instruction Manual for Clear Communication
 
The most well known Buddhist teachers on the planet all have something in common: they are excellent communicators. This is not by accident, as the Buddha taught what are called the four elements of right speech over 2,600 years ago.
In this one-of-a-kind book, certified meditation and mindfulness instructor Cynthia Kane has taken the four elements of right speech and developed them into a modern practice based on mindful listening, mindful speech, and mindful silence.
 
Beginning with an illuminating self-test to assess your current communication style, this book will take you through the author's own five-step practice that is designed to help you:
  1. Listen to yourself (your internal and external words)
  2. Listen to others
  3. Speak consciously, concisely, and clearly
  4. Regard silence as a part of speech
  5. Meditate to enhance your communication skills

If you have ever felt misheard, have trouble stating how you feel, or long to have more meaningful and genuine conversations, this book can help. The simple steps outlined in this book will have a huge effect on how you communicate with others and yourself.
 
Communication is essential to being human, and when you become better at it, your personal truth becomes clearer, your relationships improve, and the result is that you experience more peace and harmony in your life.
 
Fans of Thich Nhat Hanh will appreciate the simple, clear instructions for how to transform everyday communication into “right speech.”

Preview:

The Code of the Extraordinary Mind by Vishen Lakhiani is a self-help book for people who want to shift from an autopilot existence to a way of life that is intentional and extraordinary. As the founder of Mindvalley, a wildly successful educational company that specializes in personal growth, Lakhiani has gleaned years’ worth of wisdom from an array of his colleagues, including leaders, CEOs, spiritual teachers, media moguls, and more.
