This workshop will be an opportunity to explore how we can apply the teachings given during the 5-week Anger series to our meditation practice.
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 half-day retreat we will have the opportunity to apply some of Buddha’s practical advice in meditation to transform the energy of anger into a creative response that opens us up to resolutions and new possibilities.
