In Joyfully Together, Thich Nhat Hanh explores the spiritual, emotional, and practical aspects of developing a community for life. He stresses the importance of communication in all our relationships as the basis for resolving difficulties and maintaining an atmosphere of harmony in sanghas, families, and in our daily encounters.

Based on the experience of the Buddhist monastic community in Plum Village, the book presents both traditional and evolving practices that are applicable to current global concerns of peace and security, reconciliation and mediation. It provides very concrete methods for nonviolent communication that can help any community to live together in joy and harmony, and serves as a guideline easily adaptable for use by lay people, families, and even nations.
