Anger solves nothing. It is a destructive state of mind that constantly disturbs our inner peace, robs us of our good sense, and leads to unhappiness within our hearts and within our relationships.
During this series, students will come to recognize their own anger in its early stages of development and then learn to overcome the harmful mind of anger by generating the peaceful, positive mind of patient acceptance. Everyone is welcome to attend, no previous experience necessary. Drop in for any class.
Every class will begin with a brief introduction, followed by a guided breathing meditation and the Liberating Prayer. After meditation, there will be a short teaching and time for Q&A. Class will end with Prayers for World Peace.
