Der tibetische Meditationsmeister Sogyal Rinpoche führt uns an eine Lebenspraxis heran, durch die der Tod seinen Schrecken verliert und der Alltag an Freude gewinnt. Seine zeitgemäße Auslegung der buddhistischen Lehren des berühmten »Tibetischen Totenbuchs« hat weltweit einen maßgeblichen Rang erlangt. Sie ist zu einer unentbehrlichen Hilfe in der Krankenbetreuung und Sterbebegleitung geworden. Doch jeder Mensch kann durch dieses Buch nicht nur »die Kunst zu sterben«, sondern auch die »zu leben« lernen. Beide sind nach tibetischer Auffassung nur die zwei Seiten einer Medaille.

Responding to the growing sense that organizations and the people that make them up are "in over their heads," this monograph looks at the relationship between talk and development in organizations, noting the ways that developmental talk--or, as it is often referred to, dialogue--differs from the skilled talk that goes on all the time. It also summarizes views on dialogue as offered by leading theorists, C. Argyris, D. Bohm, J. Mezirow, D.W Johnson and R.T. Johnson, and P. Freire. The monograph then offers a series of practical observations based on these views and presents some examples of how dialogue has been incorporated into the work processes of organizations. The monograph notes that as diversity becomes the rule and change the sole constant, complexity is increasing, and the only effective response to this complexity is development: both at the individual and organizational level. Appendixes describe other processes for organizational development and delineate the major constructs of 2 categories: speech acts and situation variables. Contains 38 references. (NKA)
