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 from our minds altogether.
