a field guide for navigating the polarization of our world and living interdependently


By Kathleen Macferran and Jared Finklestein

Choice Cover

Explore choices and philosophical perspectives in a manner that goes beyond right and wrong.

Based upon the key differentiations and principles of Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication, Kathleen and Jared’s Choice  presents readers with 40 Reflections, each meticulously written to inspire curiosity about the life-serving motivation that underpin ideas that often appear as opposites. 

When readers learn how to recognize the Qualities of Life attempting to express themselves in these concepts, light is shed on a continuum that connects these paradoxical ideas and with this awareness comes an experience of choice.

Framed as a “field guide” readers are invited to use the Reflections found in Choice like trail markers on the journey through their lives.  Each Reflection offers an awareness that encourages self-responsibility, connection and peaceful collaboration in one’s relationships.

What Others Say About Choice

“If you are a leader who wants to develop your ability to discern and make choices that lead to results which enrich and sustain your organizational community, you will want to access “Choice” as a resource time and again.”

~ Christine Flaherty, MHA – Healthcare Executive


“One word can open a heart, and another word can trigger a reaction that will take hours or even weeks or years to heal.
So I would happily suggest everybody that finds communication as a crucial tool in life, to read and keep re-reading this book and thus bringing more and more clarity into the way they interact with themselves, others and life itself.”

~ Robert Kržišnik, MSc. Psych., CNVC Certified trainer and mediator
