In a world of iPhones and connectivity to social media and email, we are all in constant connection with one another. Then why are so many people feeling burned out, distant from colleagues, and abandoned by family and friends? In this new book from the bestselling author of Running with the Mind of Meditation, the Sakyong uses the basic principles of the Shambhala tradition—meditation and a sincere belief in the inherent wisdom, compassion, and courage of all beings—to help readers to listen and speak more mindfully with loved ones, co-workers, strangers, and even ourselves.

He highlights the importance of good conversation in these challenging times—exploring how we can awaken to our lives through the simple act of conversing with others. Through mindfully engaging in the relationships in our lives, we can find personal fulfillment.

The book’s underlying message is that our world is in dire need of kindness and compassion. Simply by shifting the focus of our life away from our own agenda, we can connect with others and the greater world.
