You can feel it when it hits you. Your face flushes and your vision narrows. Your heartbeat increases as judgmental thoughts flood your mind. Your anger has been triggered, and you're about to say or do something that will likely make it worse. You have an alternative. By practicing the Nonviolent Communication (NVC) process you can use that anger to serve a specific, life-enriching purpose. It tells you that you're disconnected from what you value and that your needs are not being met. Rather than managing your anger by suppressing your feelings or blasting someone with your judgments, Marshall Rosenberg shows you how to use anger to discover what you need, and then how to meet your needs in constructive ways. This booklet will help you apply these four key truths: - People or events may spark your anger but your own judgments are its cause - Judging others as "wrong" prevents you from connecting with your unmet needs - Getting clear about your needs helps you identify solutions satisfying to everyone - Creating strategies focused on meeting your needs transforms anger into positive actions

What if our actual lives aren’t ‘written’ like a simple story? Nor like a book that flows neatly and sequentially from ‘chapter-to-chapter’ via a rigidly linear plot. But written, instead, through a series of creative interludes or moments. Further still, what if our lives shouldn’t simply happen to us? But, rather, be lived through our affirmative acts of seeking ‘life.’ As part of an ongoing, active quest. A human quest for deeply spiritual lives of continuously ‘becoming.’ In Unbinding the Perpetual Soul, Jeffrey C. Tucker writes via a series of essays. These diverse, accessible, engaging, creative, and provocative essays are organized around our human quests for ‘being.’ For to ‘be’ entails continuous and challenging, but highly rewarding, quests for things such as identity, wellbeing, belonging, truths, things sacred, healing, transcendence, and meaning. Questing is not an easy journey, to be sure. But it’s life changing. It’s exhilarating. It’s exciting and rewarding. And while far from certain in its destination, one thing is for sure: you’ll be a better, healthier, and far more actualized person in the process. You’ll be more spiritually ‘whole’ and grounded. So join in this quest, if you will. An inclusive, soulful, unbinding, and life-giving one at that.
