Cultivate the potential for deeper connection in every conversation.

We often find ourselves distracted and overwhelmed by a constant stream of information and demand for connectivity. Now more than ever, we need to develop our capacity for greater presence in our daily lives and relationships, and there is no greater way to do this than by improving the quality of our conversations. Dr. Diane Millis offers inspirational stories, insights and spiritual practices from many faith traditions to increase awareness of the deep, natural holiness waiting to be unlocked in our everyday encounters. This book is a catalyst for enriching seemingly ordinary conversations and a resource for leaders in educational, ministry and corporate settings who aim to:

  • Increase their capacity to listen deeply within and without
  • Become more self-aware and attentive to others
  • Learn how to move beyond conventional topics to exploring purpose, meaning and values in conversation.
Dr. Millis offers tools for facilitating small groups in classrooms, houses of worship and the workplace. Whether you are hosting bonding conversations for the purpose of deepening relationships within groups who already know each other or bridging conversations to increase understanding among people of different cultures, faiths or ways of life, you will find guidance here to get you started.
