In situations of conflict, we tend to become angry easily. We even think anger will help us ‘win our battles’, and we rely on it as if it were our trusted friend. The mind of anger, however, leaves a trail of broken relationships, lost opportunities, and painful feelings in its wake. There’s a reason for this. According to Buddha anger is a deluded, unpeaceful mind that distorts our perception, causing us to exaggerate problems so that they feel unmanageable. Consequently, so much of our life feels overwhelming, which makes us even more angry and unhappy, both with ourselves and others. During this course, Kadam Morten will explain Buddha’s illuminating and practical teachings on how to let go of anger. Putting these explanations into practice will enable us to transform the energy of anger into a creative response that opens us up to resolutions and new possibilities. Everyone welcome!
