This is a revolutionary and inspiring book, a must for professionals and non-professionals alike! It provides us with a method for training individuals in basic communication skills that is equally applicable to communities, schools, business environments, therapeutic groups or to family systems. Council is a practice of open, heartfelt expression and attentive, empathic listening. It is a great ally in introducing meaningful change in our institutions and family relationships. Council is effective for those who want to move from a hierarchical structure to a partnership model where initiative, responsibility and leadership are shared. Through deepening trust, council supports the clarification of values, co-visioning, and community building.

“The council process is the most effective tool I know to capture the true strength of a diverse work force.” – Chuck Winship, manager strategic programs, Xerox Corporation

“I am grateful for the care and depth with which Jack and Gigi speak about the important tradition of council in writing this book. We need to listen like the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara, the compassionate being who hears not only what is said but also what has been left unsaid.” – Joan Halifax Roshi
