The No-Fault Zone Game

"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I will meet you there." —Rumi


The No-Fault Zone Game uses a mat and card decks to guide you,
step by step, to the clarity, understanding and connection you want—
within yourself and with others. It makes conversations visible, tangible,
and fun for ages 5-95 and across the sometimes-great divide between:

  • Parents & children
  • Spouses & partners
  • Siblings
  • Students
  • Business and Work associates

The No-Fault Zone Game has many ways to play.
You choose what you want to do with it:

  • Practice self-compassion
  • Resolve inner turmoil
  • Have a conversation one-on-one,
    at your own pace
  • Get to the source of problems & conflicts
  • Resolve a conflict mutually & peacefully
  • Learn & practice Nonviolent Communication skills
  • Improve family and workplace communication
  • Make up your own games for connection, learning & fun

Each No-Fault Zone Game comes with: 2 Mats; 2 Card Decks (each deck includes a set of Feelings Cards, Need Cards, and Choice Cards); a token; a booklet of ways to play; a tote bag for storage.
