The I of the Storm

Embracing Conflict, Creating Peace

by Gary Simmons

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Gary Simmons goes beyond conflict management, beyond conflict resolution, to conflict transformation. You will learn to transform fear into fearlessness...resistance into nonresistance. This book is ideal for anyone struggling with relationship discord or personal challenges and, in general, for everyone who feels uncomfortable with conflict.
In this book we learn to go beyond merely managing the conflict in our lives to actually embracing the conflict, allowing it to teach us what we otherwise might not learn. This process leads to peacemaking...whether it be within ourselves, in our relationships, or as a result of outside circumstances. Simmons integrates spiritual principles, biblical quotes, and martial arts philosophy (he is a fourth-degree black belt in tae kwon do) as well as concepts from modern science--especially quantum theory. In this way he points us to the "I" of the storm of conflict, to our spiritual Self, as the means of realizing peace in our lives.
