Publisher's Summary

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, which is designed to help you:


Listen to yourself (your internal and external words)
Listen to others
Speak consciously, concisely, and clearly
Regard silence as a part of speech
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.

Excellent!!!

I found Cynthia on DailyOM she has a course online "how to communicate like a Buddhist" and love it. Then I found out she wrote a book, so bought the audio. I would have preferred Cynthia reading I always feel the people who aren't the author sound like robots. Overall I loved it and will listen to it again.
