Peace, Compassion, and Wisdom.

What if you were able to make a real difference in your family, community, and the world, by embodying those qualities in your words and actions?

The Ongo Book 2.0: Everyday Nonviolence is the revised edition of the internationally beloved guide for being nonviolence in the real world. It offers short, simple, and doable practices for readers to incorporate into their daily lives over the course of three months, and a flexible structure that supports couples and groups who wish to practice together. Practices like mindfulness meditation, Nonviolent Communication, gratitude, and forgiveness are explained in clear, ordinary language, with an emphasis on how they can be applied in everyday life situations. From basic body awareness to making boundaries and speaking one's truth, The Ongo Book explores both the practical and the profound - for beginners and experienced practitioners.

With new forewords by Shantum Seth and Lucy Leu, this second edition now offers complete instructions for groups meeting online, new and updated practices, and guidance for continuing Ongo beyond the practices offered in the book.
