Class Topic

Anger Management.

Wednesday 15, 22, 29 Nov 6 & 13 Dec

According to Buddhism of all our negative minds, anger is the most destructive. Yet many believe anger is a force for change, not understanding the destruction it actually causes.

In this course, we’ll learn to become a scientist of our own mind, seeing which states make us peaceful and strong and which cause emotional problems and damage relationships.

We will explore the following and more:

 ·      Can you fight for what you believe in without anger?

·      Does anger create change or does it stifle it?

·      Is anger a natural part of being human?

·      Is anger ever justified?

We’ll also learn how meditation can help to reduce our reliance on anger and eventually eradicate it altogether.
