Publisher's Summary

Cutting through all the white noise, chatter, and superficiality our cell phones and social media cause, one of Tibet's highest and most respected spiritual leaders offers simple and practical advice to help us increase our attentions spans, become better listeners, and strive to appreciate the people around us.
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 best-selling 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 listeners to listen and speak more mindfully with loved ones, coworkers, strangers, and even ourselves.
In this easy to understand and helpful book, Sakyong Mipham provides inspiring ideas and practical tips on how to be more present in your day-to-day life, helping us to communicate in ways that elevate the dignity of everyone involved. Great for families, employees and employers, and everyone who spends too much time on Facebook and Instagram and feels disconnected in our connected world, Good Conversation is a journey back to basics.

essential for the modern age

This book is filled with insight that challenges and illuminatea, that inspires and demands more of us. At the same time, it is often simple and common sense. And I'm dissapointed to say, it was at many times a reminder to return to that which I already knew but have been ignoring.

I will return to this book as I carry on to renew resolve and deepen my commitment to being a human being through conversation.

Filled with rich insight

Excellent narration and flow. Thought provoking, but not too deep. Worth every minute 💜
