Transforming Anger and Conflict

This class is offered in person only

In situations where we feel vulnerable, we can become triggered and easily develop anger. At these moments, we tend to feel our anger is beneficial, necessary to “win battles”, and we can come to rely on it as if it were our trusted friend. However, if we check, the mind of anger is not only very painful, but it leaves a trail of broken relationships, lost opportunities and unhappiness in its wake. According to Buddha, anger is a deluded, unpeaceful state of mind that distorts our perception, causing us to exaggerate what is arising so that it feels unmanageable. Consequently, much of our life can begin to feel overwhelming, which in turn makes us feel more angry and unhappy, both with ourselves and others. In this series, through talks and guided meditations, Adrienne will explain Buddha’s illuminating and practical teachings on how to recognize, understand and let go of anger. Putting these insights into practice will enable us to transform the energy of anger into a centered, skillful and creative response that frees us to discover harmony, resolution, joy and new possibilities.
