Rosenberg and universal spiritual precepts, learn skills in compassionate communication and practice them in real-life situations. They will help you: Create and sustain fulfilling relationships; Remain open to others in response to painful judgments and criticisms; Express your truth so that you are most likely to be heard; Meet with compassion people whose actions seem unjust or oppressive; Empathize with others and not judge yourself.
