What began as an effort to research more peaceful solutions to human conflict has evolved into a remarkable method for connecting our enormous brain power with our equally enormous capacity for empathy. In short, when we connect with ourselves, we increase our ability and willingness to connect with others.

In this book, Rita Marie Johnson shares the Connection Practice®, a unique method for connecting with ourselves and others that is supported by scientific research and testimony from people around the world. The practice has boosted the social and emotional intelligence of over 40,000 students in Costa Rica and won the Ashoka Changemakers Innovation Award: Building a More Ethical Society, out of 79 projects in 32 countries.

Johnson discovered that the synergy of connecting mind and heart, feelings and needs, and insight and empathy maximizes our social-emotional intelligence, builds resilience and enhances performance. The Connection Practice is now being used by individuals, schools, businesses, and organizations to enhance personal well-being, reduce conflicts and bullying, improve communication and collaboration, and boost performance.

Completely Connected: Uniting Our Empathy and Insight for Extraordinary Results lays out the key features and benefits of the Connection Practice -- and it tells the touching, inspiring story of how Johnson came to discover it.

Johnson began teaching the practice in 2003 and found that it works for people of all ages from all walks of life. She has taught it to Central American leaders, rectors of universities, CEOs and their staffs, health professionals, public school teachers, troubled junior high students, adults with brain injuries, parents with challenging kids, idealistic college students and the list goes on. The fruits of this practice inspire hope in everyone it touches.

The goal of Connection Practice in schools is to prevent bullying and resolve conflicts creatively. In business, the implementation of Connection Practice increases rapport and accelerates innovation. Wherever the Connection Practice is initiated, it builds cooperative cultures.

Johnson's vision is a world where every person practices the art of connection and passes this gift on to the next generation. Through the vivid examples she shares, she spells out exactly how that vision can be realized.
