9780975979631: Revolutionary Agreements: Twelve Ways to Transform Stress and Struggle Into Freedom and Joy

Revolutionary Agreements is a delightful, practical guide to living a positive life. The book reveals principles tens of thousands have used worldwide to create greater inner peace and fulfillment—whether dealing with the common challenges of marriage and parenthood, effectively managing high-performance work teams, or contributing to improved community and international relations. Marian Head brings these agreements to life with examples, real-life stories at work, home and in the world, and explorations culled from her 30 years of facilitating personal and organizational excellence worldwide.

The book opens with an invitation by the author to join her in a revolution to create a positive world of positive lives, despite today’s prevailing paradigms of negativity. The twelve agreements she offers as tools to effect this revolution are simple, practical and profound, and are organized within three unifying principles: Truth (to be who I am); Acceptance (to accept others for who they are); and Gratitude (to appreciate the gift of this moment).

Twelve easy-to-read chapters show how to apply the Agreements in any situation to reduce unwanted drama and increase inner peace. Each chapter puts its Agreement into larger perspective with "Words of Wisdom," selections of quotations ranging from ancient wisdom to modern insights, followed by a "Focus on Today" section of practical exercises designed to help the reader apply that Agreement immediately—the perfect combination of inspiration and practical guidance.

From the Author:

The world works by agreements, whether spoken or unspoken, conscious or not. We all have agreements: with co-workers, spouses, siblings, parents and children, with people we know and even those we don’t. Perhaps most importantly, we have agreements with ourselves.

Twenty years ago, I consciously began using a specific set of agreements to guide my daily actions with family, friends and co-workers. Due in large part to practicing these agreements, unnecessary drama in my life gave way to greater inner peace, and the world has since seemed like a more loving place in which to live.

Like everyone, I juggle work, family, friendships, household, hobbies, finances, and personal and spiritual growth. In each of these areas, I am challenged every day by a complex maze of circumstances and relationships. Yet as I have observed and followed these Agreements to the best of my ability, over the years they have served as a powerful guide on my journey through the complexities of life.

For twenty years, my colleagues and I have enthusiastically shared these principles in our lives and places of work as trainers, coaches, executives, therapists, social activists and business owners, ultimately touching hundreds of thousands with the power of living our lives in truth, acceptance and gratitude. Now I make these Agreements available to you.

From the depths of my heart, I invite you to adopt these Agreements as your own and join me in this positive revolution--and in so doing, to transform your life and your world.

From the Inside Flap:

The principles behind Revolutionary Agreements have helped hundreds of thousands of people worldwide – whether dealing with the common challenges of marriage and parenthood, effectively managing high-performance work teams, or contributing to improved community and international relations.

From the mundane to the extraordinary, the personal to the political, the heartwarming to the hilarious, the author brings these agreements to life with examples, anecdotes and explorations culled from her 30 years of facilitating personal and organizational excellence worldwide.

Revolutionary Agreements can be immediately applied in your own life, whether at home, at work or at play. Engage them today: you will be amazed at the results!
