Each of the 366 meditations in this gathering of wisdom is designed to move readers away from turmoil, strife, and divisiveness and lead them toward peace, resolution, and cooperation. This shift in consciousness is challenging, but with the words and ideas of this book, readers can assemble a collection of practical tools for peaceful living. The learned behaviors of hate and resentment and the cycles of revenge are broken down and replaced with the skills of nonviolent communication, including recognizing one's needs and values and making behavior choices in alignment with them. This collection presents new ways of viewing familiar situations and daily reminders of the value of living compassionately. Each meditation includes an inspirational quote and tips for integrating the message into the reader's life.

Peaceful Living provides a new way to look at situations that empowers people to make life affirming connections with others. Mary MacKenzie is a trainer in Marshall Rosenberg's theory of Nonviolent Communication. She uses her knowledge in crafting a meditation manual that gives concise advice and unique ways at looking at conflict. For those who are familiar with Rosenberg's work, it provides a great review that can be looked at in a short time. For those unfamiliar with his books, it will spur an interest to look further. This manual is both uplifting, as well as practical. There is a saying from a person of wisdom, a short article, and then a direction for the day, for each day of the year. It is a book I will reread many times.
This book is rich with inspiring words for every day. A great resource for taking steps to be a better communicator.
this book was actually given to my boyfriend as a gift and i got tired of it lying around so i started reading it. I love it! I love the quotes from so many different people and Ms Mackenzie gets right to the issue at hand- Myself! I have read a lot of meditation books and this one has an approach that works for me with all the examples to support what is being described.
