Format: Paperback
Want to change your life? Get together with a trusted friend and spend an allotted amount of time each week focusing on truly listening to one another. Sheryl Karas recommends focused listening as an ideal way to change yourself, your relationships, and your world for the better. Karas, who has a Masters Degree in Transpersonal Psychology, is a practitioner of re-evaluation counseling. Her second book, Changing The World One Relationship At A Time: Focused Listening For Mutual Support & Empowerment, is based on over fifteen years of experience in helping people improve their lives. Karas teaches people "how to create partnerships and alliances that have the power to change the world. Starting with a few simple techniques, you and a friend can learn to empower and support each other to take charge of your lives and go after your dreams." Once you learn the basic skills, you can then communicate better with a wider group of people, until eventually you've helped make the world a happier place in which to live. She explains that her teachings focus on society, rather than on the individual, asserting that "people in the United States are starved for community and often must struggle to create and maintain adequate personal relationships." Not recognizing the importance of relationships leads to a life that is out-of-balance. Rebalancing starts with listening. Nearly all the exercises in Karas's book require a "listening partner." The key to success is learning how to truly listen to each other. Feeling free to say exactly what they're feeling to someone who is concentrating on listening in a supportive and loving manner is a new experience for many people.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
This book is one that I recommend to anyone who is seeking to have meaningful relationships with anyone. The counsel given and the exercises are spot on. I first read this book when I had been married 12 years, its guidance is definitely partly responsible for helping me hear my spouse and I understand each other better; 31 years is pretty good proof.
