Cultivate the potential for deeper connection in every conversation. To think of conversation as a sacred art challenges us to imagine all the conversations in which we participate, from the acquaintance we run into at Target to the dialogue for which we ve spent weeks in preparation, as a potentially sacred conversation.

Now more than ever, we need to develop our capacity for greater presence in our daily lives and relationships. One of the best ways to do this is by improving the quality of our conversations.
