Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This profound guidebook reframes and expands the mission of building a global culture of peace. Going far beyond conventional techniques of conflict resolution, James ODea provides a holistic approach to peace work, covering its oft-ignored cultural, spiritual, and scientific dimensions while providing guidance suitable even for those who have never considered themselves peacebuilders. ODea is unique in his ability to integrate personal experience in the worlds violent conflict zones with insights gathered from decades of work in social healing, human rights advocacy, and consciousness studies. Following in the footsteps of Gandhi and King, ODea keeps the dream of peace alive by teaching us how to dissolve old wounds and reconcile our differences. He strikes deep chords of optimism even as he shows us how to face the heart of darkness in conflict situations. His soulful but practical voice speaks universally to peace activists, mediators, negotiators, psychologists, educators, businesspeople, and clergy—and to everyday citizens.

Synopsis:

Penned by a world-renowned social healer and peacemaker, this guide provides strategies for navigating disagreements in conflict situations of any type—within oneself, between family members, in the workplace, or between nations or religions. The study offers an integral approach to the field of building peace, covering its often-ignored cultural, spiritual, and scientific dimensions in one volume. Ideal for psychologists, negotiators, peace activists, educators, business leaders, and clergy, this handbook presents a unique set of profound tools and perspectives needed for fostering peace in the 21st century. Topics covered include how to navigate conflict with wisdom and effectiveness, develop the essential skills of a social healer, learn lessons from the new “science of peace,” and connect with an inspiring community of “peace builders” worldwide.
