Part One: Working with Ourselves  
The first step towards forging a stronger relationship with our friends, family and fellow citizens is to develop the relationship we have with ourselves.

Part Two: Enriching Our Relationships
Mindful conversation has the power to unlock the potential of our relationships. When we converse from a place of authenticity, we enrich the lives of others. 

Part Three: Engaging Our World
When we are armed with a sincere belief in the inherent wisdom and compassion of others, we can take our first steps towards being helpful to the world as a whole.
