Harlem Buddhist Meditation Class

Unraveling the Hidden Causes of Anger 

$10 per class by donation, free for supporting members

This class is offered in-person only

Is anger ever righteous?  Has anger ever given you the happiness and protection that you want?  In Buddhism, painful emotions such as anger are known as ‘delusions.’ They are called this precisely because they are delusional ways of seeing the world and distort our experiences. Delusions such as anger are completely unreliable states of mind, guaranteed to create unhappiness for ourselves and others.

In this series, we will use clear methods based on Buddhist meditation to:

  • Connect to anger's antidote - our happiness, patience, and love.
  • Identify the hard-to-see causes of anger.
  • Recognize the faults of anger without blaming ourself.
  • Apply practical methods in our daily life to reduce our anger and prevent it from arising.

By applying these methods and unraveling our painful mind of anger, we can remain peaceful and effective in even the most difficult situations. Could there be a more essential life skill?

September 7: Becoming Mindful of Happiness

September 14: Identify the Hard-to-See Causes of Anger

September 21: Recognize Anger as your Enemy
