About the book
Within us all, there is an ongoing battle between positive and negative energies and this has a direct effect on our daily lives. For many, the clash of negative emotions manifests itself externally through conflict and breeds anger, sadness and pain.
By reading The Art of Conflict, you can learn how to recognise, address and eventually suppress the vicious cycles of negativity by understanding that the first step to make is peace with yourself.
Through the practise of meditation and negotiation detailed in this book, you can overcome the negativity of conflict and become a happier and more peaceful person, which can have a direct result on the people around you and can reshape your life. If you're ready to change and willing to learn, then you, too, can reap the benefits of happiness.
