My New Book Principles and Practices of Nonviolence is now available!

I am excited to let you know that my new book Principles and Practices of Nonviolence: 30 Meditations for Practicing Compassion is now available for purchase from most online retailers and your local bookstore! 

When I wrote the book my hope was that I could share the timeless message of nonviolence with others to inspire people to practice those principles that guided those we recognize as leaders of nonviolence. I think that the book's focus on nonviolence is timely and essential in guiding and shaping our future, especially in the midst of all we are seeing nationally and internationally at this time. 

I hope that you can pick up a copy and share the message with others! And don't hesitate to write a review on or your favorite online retailer. 

Here are what people are saying:

Praise for Principles and Practices of Nonviolence: A 30 Day Guide to Living Compassion

“With each chapter, comes wisdom and a clear invitation and request of how to practice these principles of Nonviolence. This book is enriching to the soul, nourishing to the spirit and essential for our individual and collective healing. A book for our times!”

Sylvia Haskvitz, Certified Trainer/Assessor with the Center for Nonviolent Communication, Author of Eat by Choice, Not by Habit; Practical Skills for Creating a Healthy Relationship with Your Body and Food and contributing author to Healing Our Planet, Healing Ourselves, The Power of Change Within to Change the World.

“Eddie is our modern-day Gandhi, beautifully sharing 30 approaches for all of us to listen, empathize, and love. He eloquently fills each chapter with moving quotes and sayings from his mentors and heroes, relating them to his own experiences and then leaving us with an inspirational and stimulating skill builder. These skills enable us to identify strengths and areas of growth as we strive to reach our place of joy and unconditional happiness. Eddie is not telling us that this growth and change is easy, but he is telling us that it is so worth it and it will change the entire trajectory of our lives!”

Principles and Practices of Nonviolence brings to light the practices of nonviolence of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. in the disposition of a casual read, but with a great deal of insights. It provides easy to incorporate practices for compassion in everyday situations for individuals from all walks of life. What particularly intrigued me about this book is that it calls you to truly look inside yourself and ask yourself how you can empathize with the person who hurt you, which can be a tough endeavor for many of us when in a difficult situation. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to gain perspective on compassion and nonviolence in all aspects of life.”

A very powerful, eye opening and inspiring book on nonviolence and how we can see the good where we thought there wasn't any. The author brings Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and many others' thoughts on actions of nonviolence; It will help you look within yourself and others and come away with why we treat others based on a preconceived mindset. The book gives hope and an example is when the author writes, "Remember that when we practice nonviolence and hold others in positive regard, we can contribute to changed hearts, social change and a new future."
