From the Introduction

As my exploration of Nonviolent Communication and spirituality
deepened over the years, what has emerged in me is a clarity about
ways to cultivate a daily practice of living compassion — day to day,
moment by moment — with ourselves and in relationships with others.
It is a practice of compassionately embracing all of life.

My deep inquiry in life has led me to develop practical pathways of
living in the fullness and flow of life as a daily spiritual practice, what I call Living Compassion.

Robert Gonzales




"I offer this book of reflections with the intention that it be received as a meditation, an inquiry practice, or a prayer. The words point to the inner territory of our being and are an invitation to explore our own internal experience." Robert Gonzales

This book, created over years of sharing and teaching workshops, individual sessions, and retreats, leads the reader into unsuspected depths. It is a guide for exploring dimensions of wholeness and healing; an invitation to approach our experience in a radically different way. We enter into our difficult experiences to reveal the fullness and beauty in all experience.

In the words of one workshop participant, "Although I have a number of books out of which I could quote insights, I feel the impulse to speak out of my heart. I want to celebrate your decision to share the insights you are acknowledging along your path in such a way that they reach deep rooms in me; I joyfully open up to the architect in you who places windows and doors in rooms where the light had not found its way in so far. I am thankful to have met you along my path.”
