How to Break the Anger Habit with Sharon Salzberg
The latest science backs up the efficacy of inner peace and happiness in our lives. And inner peace and happiness go hand in hand with calm, balance, compassion and better physical health—all benefits of meditation. But how do you navigate a path to a genuine feeling of peace and self-acceptance if you are confused about how to deal with anger—toward certain people or circumstances in your life? From her years of the study of Buddhist philosophy, meditation teacher, Sharon Salzberg, has learned that we must confront four kinds of enemies—outer, inner, secret and super-secret—we encounter in life. This seminar, based on her bestselling book, Love Your Enemies: How to Break the Anger Habit & Become a Whole Lot Happier, will teach participants how to identify those enemies and how to move past them. Learn practical tools and exercises to control anger, which include getting rid of “us” versus “them” thinking and ways to develop compassion, patience and love for others—and for ourselves.
